The Pen Slim - Black Raw 14oz Selvedge

SKU 3010-346-05-29

Our premium denim is inspired by the classic vintage blue jean. Our Premium Japanese 4-Way Stretch Selvedge denim story starts in Japan where our fabric is developed at one of the oldest denim mills. We blend a unique 4 way stretch material with selvedge denim to create a specific amount of stretch and comfort you wouldn’t typically get with selvedge denim. This 360 degree of stretch gives the wearer comfort from every angle no matter what they are doing.

Our 4-Way Stretch selvedge fabric is weaved using vintage shuttle looms. Rolls of denim fabric are then brought into our workshop in Los Angeles where each pair goes through a 60 to 90 day process of cut, sew, washing and testing. With 4 fits available in multiple weights (see fit guide) and washes, the style options are endless.

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.

Quality Jeans

These are the highest quality pair of jeans I own! 165-170lbs size 31 is a perfect fit.

Great construction - terrible lint magnet

These jeans have all the hallmarks of great build quality, but unfortunately they attract a TON of lint/fuzz. As much as I wanted to keep them, I couldn’t imagine dealing with lint rolling my jeans constantly in order to wear them. I have other black denim that wear perfectly without any lint attraction issues.

Hi Aaron

We are sorry that you had a big concern about the lint with the jeans.
The returned pair passed our qc, which means we were not able to find a big issue on the pair. I shared your feedback with our production team for our future reference.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
