So, you need a quality pair of selvedge jeans for under a hundo, but you don’t really want to skimp on the details. That might’ve been a tougher proposition a few years back, but here in 2017 there are a number of viable options worth considering, and Sage hopes you file their 15oz. Sanforized Scout II jean under “options to consider.”
The denim is a slubby right hand twill, which has been rope dyed a deep indigo and is cut with a slim-straight fit. These jeans offer a smattering of details you don’t tend to see on the more accessibly priced denim out there, like a stealth mountain arcuate, embossed copper rivets, hidden rivets, a twill pocket lining, belt loop hook, signature black pattern top button at the fly, and a 2mm high-pressure stamped buffalo hide patch.
And hey, don’t overlook that hidden rivet detail — it’s not a simple thing to do at this price point and hidden rivets save you more often than you will ever know. If you find yourself raising a brow right now, just give a thought to wearing exposed rivet jeans for a couple years without gouging your wooden chairs or scratching the paint on anything you lean against. See what I mean?
