11.75oz Stretch Selvage Denim

When we decided to introduce a stretch selvage we knew it had to be the best. We wanted a stretch that was only 'felt' but not 'seen' in other words a stretch that did not compromise the aesthetic of the selvage denim 'face' or surface. Where did we turn? Cone Mills of course! Cone Denim's SGENE® technology has created a new global standard for stretch selvage denim. The stretch filament is inserted first and is then wrapped in a cotton covering and spun to provide a soft cotton hand and natural appearance. The core spun stretch yarn doubles the performance of the fabric by adding more than one core. In fact, Cone spins their dual-core yarn in-house to maintain exceptionally high quality standards. The patented technology is hidden within the proprietary yarn, giving it twice the power. "Bagging knee" syndrome is virtually eliminated. The premium yarns and construction creates a fabric that remembers its shape.

Not only is this selvage packed with next level construction but is a 3x1 RHT with ARS x CRS. Shade is a super saturated true indigo with a beautiful vertical, tight slub warp yarn.   

Simply put this is the world's best stretch selvage bar none. Whether you're a bike commuter, skater, musician or simply want a selvage that can move with your body no matter the occasion or vocation then look no further, you've found it. Now get it...  

This fit runs true to size and is comparable to LEVI's 522 and Nudies Lean Dean fit.

The inspiration for this 2.0 fit was to merge our Slim Straight top block with the bottom half (knee down) of the Skeleton. The result is a true 

The new top block has been opened up in the waistband & low hip/seat which means they sit more naturally on the hips vs. the Slim Taper 1.0 The longer rise gives the silhouette a natural 'slouched' look without having to sag. The narrow bottom opening will create an impressive stacking effect around the ankles that will have sneaker heads rejoicing. This is a style that will give you points for being relevant while still being able to act your age which surprisingly are not mutually exclusive concepts.

SIZING CHART

  

The comparison to LEVI'S fit styles is merely a reference point for those unfamiliar with how our jeans fit since there is no industry sizing standard. Most people have at some point in their lives owned a pair of LEVI'S and is the greatest common fit denominator when trying to gauge jean sizing. Our pattern blocks are unique to Brave Star and have been developed and fine tuned over the years with our head pattern maker and could feel completely different on your body in comparison to a pair of LEVI'S due to fabric weight & composition. One other factor to keep in mind is that the single pair of LEVI'S that we purchased here in Los Angeles to measure and feature on our size chart is not necessarily indicative of how that same style of LEVI'S fits on you when you purchased it since we have found quite a large variance in their sizing depending on where the jean was manufactured, the weight of the fabric and the wash applied to the jean.                                        

Fit Model is wearing size 31 in all fits.

Please allow for a +/- 1/4" tolerance in the waistband vs listed spec.
