When it comes to your jeans, you want absolute function with all the right details. This newly released collaboration by Dawson Denim and Standard & Strange covers those bases and then some to give you a sturdy pair of classic fitting blues.
Made from a 14.5oz. hemp/cotton blend denim, they maintain a rigid, crunchy raw denim feel that offers a unique alternative to the standard 100% cotton denim. This fabric was woven on antique Imamura looms in Japan, and although it is unsanforized, it will stay very true to size even after seeing water with minimal shrinking.
While the outward appearance is a bit plain jane, the small details don’t disappoint. Look closely and you’ll find hidden rivets, tucked belt loops, felled inseams, bound outseams, and a waistband that’s stitched continuously through the fly. Deadstock WW2 era twill pocket bag material and historically accurate stone colored thread are just two more small nuances you’ll find in the top block.
The DD02 Jean is available for $360 at Standard & Strange online and in their new, larger location 5010 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland, CA 94609.
