I was perusing Mohawk General Store in Silver Lake the other week ago when I noticed a pair of raw jeans from a brand I’d never seen before, Anatomica. It’s a French label but the tag says “technically manufactured in Japan”, an interest piquer for sure.
So I went through my typical steps when sizing up a new pair: mid-weight 13 oz. denim, singed and calendared with a few stray tweedy bits. Standard nickel finish rivets and a zip fly — interesting. The fit’s a slim-straight with a mid-rise and all the stitching looks good. So I finally turn up the cuff to get a look at the selvedge on the outseam and, lo and behold, there’s no outseam!
That’s right, the legs on these jeans are made from a single piece of wrapped denim that’s only stitched at the inseam. I had to flip through a couple other pairs in the stack to make sure they were all like this and I didn’t just grab an anomaly. Mohawk had just gotten them in last month and I believe they are the only North American retailer as of right now, so we’ll have to wait to see how these seamless jeans fade in comparison to their seamed counterparts.
