"THE SCISSORS" SLIM TAPERED JEANS - INDIGO RAW 4WAY AIR 11.5oz

$209.00

SKU 3015-446-05-28

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.

 

You may notice this material has an odor of denim fiber. Most of our denim are processed to control the order of the denim fiber but this style. The odor will go away in the course of time

4-Way stretch selvedge denim

Model is 6'2" and wearing a size 32.


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.

These are GREAT!

This is my first pair of "Scissors" cut and I just love them. A little more room in the leg and seat with a slightly higher rise than the Pen Slim. And even though they are roomier, they are not baggy at all due to the taper. Perfect fit. The 11.5 oz. "Air" denim is really slick. They have a rugged appearance due to the weave. Look like a heavy denim but light as air as the name suggests. A really cool and different pair of jeans in a land where everything seems to look the same. I recommend highly.

What can I say?

The "Air" material awesome, the texture and look of the fabric is something Ive never seen before. Im totally happy with my purchase and that it came in my favorite cut.

Thank you for trying our unique AIR 11.5oz which looks heavy ounce but is actually light material.

I'm 6'03" and 190lbs, I wear a size 32. These fit well and are extremely comfortable. The scissor on my build is a bit tighter than I would normally wear but they aren't skin tight. The look of this denim is amazing and worth a change in style.

Thank you for your size detail which helps other customers for sizing. We appreciate your nice words on our jeans, Thanks!

Great Fit

Just received this pair of Jeans, sizing wise it’s a good fit, just have to hem it at my tailor for my shorter legs.

Weird smelling out of the bag as well, would probably need to air it out for a while before wearing it.

Otherwise, love the weight and texture of this pair, can’t wait to wear it out soon!

hi Zack

Thank you for trying our new 11.5oz AIR jeans. Yes, having inseam option is one of our challenge. We also apologize that 11.5oz has a burnt odor which is an unique smell of denim. Our other jeans has been processed to prevent the odor but this specific style. It will go away after a few days but sorry if that annoys you.
