Around this time of the year, one doesn’t need to go far to hear the grumbling of what a pain raw denim is. As the material does not always agree with the hot and sticky months of summer, it’s always interesting to see what solutions pop up (such as the recently released, lightweight The Hill-Side and Co. Highrider Selvedge).
While not raw denim per se, New York denim purveyors, Blue In Green, have also taken the queue and offered a special line of Warehouse heavyweight t-shirts; including a Indigo Rope Dyed model. As opposed to the more common and cost-effective approach of dyeing a finished, cotton white t-shirt, Warehouse chose to have the cotton yarns indigo rope dyed prior to weaving.
While Blue in Green wasn’t able to confirm the long-term fading results, they did say it will lose it’s color overtime. However, if you love the design but are concerned about the bleeding effects, there are three other versions available.
