A beautiful example of handcrafted Japanese denim, the Dry Bones 562W Engineering Denim Jean takes influence from midcentury cool. The jean’s heart is in the right place, drawing heavily from the 1950s-era Levi’s 501—the epitome of a relaxed, easygoing pair of jeans. The 562W is just as cool, honestly, and comes in that classic mid-rise, straight leg 501 fit.
Complete with 13.5oz. red selvedge denim, a bound button fly, and a leather patch, what’s most eye-drawing about these jeans is the double-helix back pocket arcs. Dry Bones shows they’re humble with a consistent design philosophy throughout their work, their commitment to preserving classic denim styling through master craftsmanship, as well as a penchant for playful, simple and memorable branding.
The 501 silhouette appears to be in good hands.
