Near the beginning of 2012, 3sixteen began dropping hints of a new cut that would be added to their denim roster. Fast forward to September 2012 and after much anticipation among fans and denim heads, the CS-100x “Classic Straight” is finally unveiled.
Utilizing the signature 14.5 Oz. indigo selvedge denim from Kuroki Mills in Okayama, Japan, the CS-100x is built for those in need of a looser fit and more traditional look, but unwilling to trade off the 3sixteen feel and quality they’ve come to adore.
Particularly compared to its sister cuts – the SL-100x and ST-100x – the CS-100x possesses a more liberal anti-fit and higher rise from thigh up, and straighter leg toward the leg opening. The vintage nature of this model is especially evident when looking closely at the roomier thigh and relaxed silhouette (from the knee downward).
Sticking true to 3sixteen fashion as well, all of the usual hardware and fabric details are maintained. From the Tanner Goods leather patch and specially marked hardware and pocket bags, to the red line selvedge coin pocket and fly detailing, the label were careful to not muddle up this department!
Note: We all make mistakes; including yours truly. Despite our efforts, we made an error when sizing the denim and thus the above description is not reflected well in the photos below. Although we can attest to the benefits and quality of the CS-100x, for a more accurate representation of the fit photos, please visit Cultizm and Woodlands.
