China’s Red Cloud & Co. To Remove Red Tab Detail From R400 Denim

The last time we featured Red Cloud & Co., it was highlighting raw denim from China – a country that is typically (and perhaps unfairly) only associated with cheap labor and poor quality garments. This time around, the brand is featured again because they have decided to discontinue their usage of the red tab detail on the R400 model.

While the reason isn’t explicitly stated, we’ve got a hunch that there was some legal reasoning behind the Shenyang-based brand’s removal of the red tab (which have caused some companies to respond cheekily to). Either way, the R400 will continue on sans tab after the current batch sells out.

Constructed of 17 Oz. unsanforized long-stapled cotton TURPAN denim, the Red Cloud & Co. R400 features a straight cut and a comfortable mid rise. The right hand twill fabric has a unique aesthetic, helping the Chinese denim to stand out a bit. The jeans also feature a Japanese goat skin patch, Japanese YKK buttons and rivets and laurel buttons on the fly. Due to the fabric being unsanforized, the brand calls out that customers should expect 5-10% in shrinkage after the first wash.

Check out all the details and photos below before heading over to Tuckshop Sundry Supply if you’re interested in grabbing a pair while the red tab is still intact.
