Agreste Spares No Details for Their Sub-$100 Selvedge Denim
Entry-level jeans might have a negative connotation, but it’s often the category that’ll make your denim dollars travel the furthest. Agreste’s made this point clear, and they’re back to drive it home. With two new members of their Spanish family, they’re introducing their Sanjuan Jeans and Alvar Denim Chinos.
Made with 13oz. selvedge denim from Berto, the Sanjuan features the stylings of a classic five pocket jean with some details normally reserved for “niche” price points like triple needle stitching at the inseams as well as a one-piece continuous fly with selvedge detailing. Copper hardware, natural veg tan leather patch, and tucked belt loops give this hard-wearing jean some pizzazz.
Meanwhile, back at the trouser lab, the Alvar Denim Chinos are Agreste’s answer to the question: what do I wear to a “woodsy formal” summer wedding? With 11oz. of once-washed Berto selvedge denim, this chino-style pant is cut with a slim-straight fit and also features a one-piece continuous fly, coconut buttons, tucked belt loops, welted flap pockets at the rear, slanted pockets at the front, and a chainstitch hem (the invitation said formal, but it’s still in Yosemite).
Because Agreste operates only online and doesn’t wholesale to retailers, they can keep the details high while prices lay low. So, both models are available for just 149€ (~$175USD). Get in on the pre-sale and they’re actually 30% off. But wait, there’s more! If you’re particularly keen on either models, early adopters can get 40% off with Agreste’s early bird special for the next three days. Oh, and if you’re outside of the EU, you can knock off another 21% for that VAT. All those details with a price tag of 70.6€ (~$82USD) amount to a bang for your buck that’ll give other online denim brands a run for their money. You can find both the Sanjuan Jeans and the Alvar Chinos only at Agreste.
