Relatively unknown to the game is Jakarta-based brand, Elhaus. With a knack for the technical and leaning toward innovation, the brand produces garments that are both modern and classic. Their entire Summer 2014 collection is full of welcomed surprises, but we’ve got our eyes set on their jeans.
Although the folks at Elhaus are no fans of overlock stitching and prefer to fell all of their seams by way of a single-needle machine, their summer weight Iron Tail jeans proudly display a non-selvedge outseam that’s shell-stitched. It’s eye-catching on first glimpse and certainly a work of beauty. Other details include a hand-carved, natural leather patch, an offset center belt loop, and wabash denim pocket bags. They’re not ones to label their denim fabrics as “Japanese” or “Cone Mills,” but are more apt on letting their Indonesian-made garments speak for themselves. And with the kinds of details included in their Iron Tail jeans, you would surely expect to pay a lot more than what they’re priced, which is about $60 USD.
