As you can imagine, one of the more difficult workings to any heritage company (denim or otherwise) is maintaining tradition while pursuing innovation. Typical proponents of all things heritage and repro, Sugar Cane, recently released their skinniest fit yet, the Sugar Cane 2014 Jean.
Sugar Cane reproduces denim fabrics from 50-100 years ago with restored power looms. Their rich indigo is achieved by using traditional Japanese hand dyeing techniques and producing fibers from sugar cane. You may remember their Sugar Cane Awa, Sugar Cane Okinawa, and Sugar Cane Hawaii lines as each model island hopped their way across the Pacific.
The slim tapered run continues the Sugar Cane heritage with a modern fit and a slight taper below the knee.
