Do you like the roomy top block of Left Field NYC’s Greaser cut but the tapered hem of their Chelsea? Well you are in luck! Adding a third fit to their stable, Left Field’s Charles Atlas fit models itself after the bodybuilder of the same name and the taper needed to suit his buff physique.
In the 1950s, Atlas rose to fame for “Manufacturing skinny weaklings into real MEN!” Such a manly shape, however, requires a little bit more room around the top block. Some guys, however, still want that tight taper that only comes on the thigh-crushers. That’s where LF’s Charles Atlas fit steps in.
The jean is currently available for pre-order in two different fabrics: your standard 13oz. Cone Mills redline selvedge ($180) as well as a 14oz. stretch selvedge from Japan’s Collect Mills ($220 and pictured above).
This is the first stretch denim for Left Field, according to brand founder Christian McCann, “It’s very hard to find a stretch denim in a weight above 11 oz and especially one that doesn’t have a sheen to it, so we are hoping we have found a perfect solution for our classic denim fans that need a little mobility.”
