  • An essential addition to your rotation of raws. Small batch production, limited stock.

Fabric Notes:

The closing down of Cone Mills White Oak has certainly been one of the most disappointing events in denim history but the silver lining is we have been able to scour through their warehouses and get our hands on qualities that would never have seen the light of day had it not been for the shut down.
Here is one of those finds - a black denim warp yarn with a grey colored weft. This is by no means a double black quality but rather inspired by the black denims that you'd find in the 50's when jeans were practically outlawed by society and anyone who wore them were delinquents and outsiders. Yep, that kinda black.
At 12 1/2 ounces these are period correct in terms of weight as most selvedge denim was between 10oz - 13oz during the first half of the 20th century and at that weight they're very wearable during the warm Summer months. 
You can bet that Cone Mills made most of the denims back then that made this black quality infamous. Throw on a white tee and some black engineer boots for that eternal cool vibe. Here's your chance to cop a pair one last time...

    HOW TO MEASURE YOUR JEANS/SIZING CHART

    How to correctly measure your jeans

    FOR OTHER TYPES OF CLOTHING MEASUREMENTS, CHECK OUT THESE SIZING PAGES: 

     

    Waist Measure:

    Lay the jeans on a flat surface. Flatten the waistband by pressing out any wrinkles or kinks with your hands. Pull the front waistband up parallel with the back waistband and measure across the top from edge to edge. This edge to edge measurement will give you a half measure which is what we have listed below in our sizing chart. A full measure can be obtained by doubling the flat measurement number for e.g. 16.75 inches x 2 = 33.5 inches. A Full measure (Flat Lay x 2) is NOT the waist size you will purchase from us. The Full Measure is the number used to compare to our fit guide to determine your waist size. 

    Measuring your selvedge denim jeans

    Low Hip:

    This is an important point of measure for low hips and seat. Flatten down the hips so no wrinkle or kinks remain.

    Next, measure 6 inches down from the bottom of the waistband at the side seam. Mark with your finger or light colored pencil.

    Measure at a slight downward angle just below the J stitch and then across the opposite side going up at the same slight angle. A picture is worth a thousand words so here it is.

    Thigh:

    Most folks get this wrong, thats ok this is how you get the correct measure. Measure one inch down from the midpoint between the double needle stitch of the front rise. Mark with your finger or light colored pencil.

    Measure across at a slightly upward angle following the natural pitch of the thigh panel.

    INSEAM:

    Measure from the same midpoint of the double needle at the top where the thigh and crotch meet. Walk the tape measure down the contour of the inseam along the stitch to the edge of the hem. 

    BRAVE STAR SIZING CHART:                          

    Please allow for a +/- 1/2" tolerance in the waistband vs listed spec.

    All measurements are "full waist measurements." For a full waist measure, you would take your layflat measurements as shown on the waist measurements instructions above and double that number.  

    For example, if you measure your best fitting jean at home and the layflat measurement is 17.25", then you would double that number for a full measure of 34.5" (17.25 x 2 = 34.5) You would then take that measurement and check the sizing chart to determine you need a Brave Star size 32 Waist Jean.
