Selvage denim of this weight and caliber are rare, expensive and very difficult to manufacture here in USA due to the sheer weight, thickness of the yarn and time factor involved in slowing down the production line.
Each sewing operation has to be considered and necessary adjustments need to be made to accommodate the weight. Our sewing operators are required to wear safety goggles during the sewing process due the frequent exploding needles which can be quite dangerous. Needless to say it's extremely time consuming due to the half speed at which the operations can be accomplished and it's a very labor intensive production process.
The yarns used to weave this weight are two NE 3.5s yarns which enables the density and strength of a full 22oz's but ensures a wearability that is not much beyond a 18oz.
