The Scissors Slim tapered - Ronnie 11.5oz AIR Selvedge

SKU 301544604-29

Heavily Textured, Lightly Worn

In the pursuit of innovation we have created our latest achievement in denim. The idea for Selvedge Air was born out of the love for old vintage denim and the need for comfort. We wanted to introduce a denim that had the look and feel of a 15oz denim but one felt light and very comfortable when worn. After a very long development process with a highly capable mill in Japan, we were finally able to make this vision a reality.

Instead of using the usual 3 X 1 weave of standard denim, we implemented a 5 x 1 weave. This creates a denim with a higher surface thread count but a lower overall thread count, making it lighter and still durable. The low tension yarns and loose denim weave contribute to the thicker look of the denim while maintaining its light feel. The overall result is a vintage textured denim that looks like heavy weight and feels like a lightweight.

• Slim Tapered Fit

• Washed Indigo 11.5oz.

Built using only the best available hardware with traditional machines and techniques, you are getting a true vintage inspired piece with a modern upgrade of comfort.

Just amazing

Just got my first pair of 10.5oz slim tapered Ace color jeans. Was nervous about the fit and needing to hem without trying them. They were true to size with a perfect maintenance of the original hem line. Comfortable as I have ever worn and beautiful quality. Worth every cent…..

Thank you for your review, David! We're glad to hear that our jeans are providing you with the quality and comfort you were hoping for. We hope you'll continue to enjoy them for years to come.

Worth the cost of admission. Amazing jeans that get better with each wear. Perfect fit.

Great pair of Jeans!

The fit on these jeans is fantastic. The texture and wash give the weight of a true workwear selvedge jean. Not to worry these jeans do not fit like your usual stiff jean. The fabric has great stretch and is super comfortable. I have worn mine twice this week and they are guaranteed to make an appearance this weekend. Coupled with the quality and fit the customer service has been fantastic. It is clear that the Hiroshi Kato team is passionate about what they do and it is infectious. I look forward to adding more pairs to my collection.

Thanks for the review, Jason! We're so glad to hear that you're enjoying the jeans - they're definitely a great choice for anyone looking for quality, fit, and comfort. We're happy to hear that our customer service is top-notch.

How could I not... when I was a child that what everyone called me... Ronnie
With that said this is my second purchase of jeans from this company and they still remain a legend.
After seeing this jean in the flesh I was delighted to see the stitching pattern... love them.
In a world that is so hard to feel good in, this is a little reprieve that something can work.
Get them and go out and have some fun.

Thanks for the review Ron! We're glad you like our jeans and we hope you enjoy wearing them for a long time.
