Stretch denim will always be divisive in the raw denim world, but even the most militant of selvedge purists have to give Full Count a chance. In this instance, the Osaka 5 heavyweight is back with the 1952 jean, a pair of super skinny raws that will bring all the skinny-jean fades with half the chafe.
These five-pocket jeans are constructed from a special 13.5oz. Japanese selvedge denim, which blends Fullcount’s famous Zimbabwe cotton with polyurethane. Coming in a skinny fit with a mid-to-low rise, the small amount of polyurethane will bring an added measure of comfort to daily wear, without tarnishing the quality of the denim. In fact, judging by the images, the fabric looks crispy, rich in texture, and ripe for the fadin’—especially next to that freshly cut vegetable-tanned goatskin leather patch.
Finished with silver-coated branded copper buttons, hidden copper rivets, and a rosy pink selvedge ID, you can find these jeans over at Corlection for $260.
