Freenote Cloth has done some heavy lifting to bring you the latest (and, they say, greatest) pair of jeans in their lineup.
The Rios is constructed with hand-selected Cone Mills denim, spun and woven in the US of A. Its middleweight raw selvedge denim clocks in at 14.75oz. and has a subtle slub thanks to Cone Mill’s ‘home spun’ technique for the fill yarns. Custom hardware hails from Kentucky – backed, as always, with leather – and the leather waistband patch was produced by Red Wing’s SB Foot tannery in Minnesota. Pocket bags are a dusty red Japanese herringbone, and you’ll find 1/8″ double needle accents throughout.
In the fit department, the popular Rios slim straight style has been further refined with a slightly higher rise in the front and back for greater comfort, especially in the stiff first stages of break-in.
Available from Freenote for $230.
