The True Straight 14oz Cone Mills Selvage

BSJ103

CONE MILLS R.I.P 1905 - 2017

On Oct 18th Cone Mills announced that after 112 years in business they would be officially ceasing all production and operations and permanently close the White Oak plant in North Carolina as of Dec 31st 2017. Cone is the oldest operating denim mill in the world and is the last to weave selvedge denim in the US.

Owning a pair of Cone Mills selvedge denim woven at the White Oak plant will not only be a badge of honor but a necessary addition to any serious or aspiring denim heads collection. Do not miss this opportunity to add this quality to your rotation while supplies last.

FABRIC:

A Cone Mills 14oz that is a one off, exclusive item that is not available in their regular stock collection. This 14oz has a visible 'hairiness' on the face that's achieved by skipping the final finishing process known as singeing or gassing of the fabric where the denim is passed over a controlled gas flame. We highly approve of the rougher aesthetic that this unfinished selvage lends to the True Straight.

TRUE STRAIGHT is comparable in fit to LEVI'S® 504™ or NUDIE® JEANS Straight Alf   

Details include:

  • Red Orange top stitching for authentic denim aesthetic
  • Sewn & chain stitched in all the right places on vintage Union Special, Reece & Singer machines.
  • A & E core spun poly thread for maximum strength & durability.
  • Embroidered star insignia on the right back pocket represents ‘Made in America’ status.
  • Button fly with double prong, donut style buttons. Old style pocket rivet burrs.
  • All hardware is made in Kentucky.
  • Leather back patches are cut & stamped in Los Angeles & waistband label is woven locally in Los Angeles.
  • Every aspect of the production is US made at our own facility in Downtown Los Angeles.

    HOW TO MEASURE YOUR JEANS/SIZING CHART

    How to correctly measure your jeans

    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.

    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 +/- 1/4" tolerance (flat measure) in the waistband vs listed spec.

    All measurements are flat measurements. For full measure double the number listed, for eg size 32 waist = 17.25 inches flat x 2 = 34.5 all the way around.

    PLEASE NOTE: WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU MEASURE YOUR ACTUAL WAIST (MEASURED APPROXIMATELY 4 INCHES BELOW YOUR NAVEL) AND PURCHASE A WAISTBAND MEASUREMENT 1" LESS THAN YOUR ACTUAL WAIST.
