The True Straight 27oz 'Sumo 2' Japan Selvage

Notify me when this product is available:

Our heaviest denim to date and the last drop of the year for a quality this heavy. Selvage denim of this weight and caliber are rare and very difficult to manufacture due to the sheer weight and thickness of the yarn.

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 a very time consuming and labor intensive production process. 

Fabric Notes:

The yarns used to weave this weight are two NE 3.5s yarns which enables the density and strength of a full 27oz's but ensures a wearability that is not much beyond a 21 or 22oz.
