American-made jeans cut from Japanese denim by one of the preeminent makers in the industry? And for only $140?! It frankly sounds too good to be true, but it’s real!
Railcar introduces their new Standard Issue jean, a non-selvedge (but still raw) jean that significantly lowers the cost by skirting some laborious territory (i.e. bar-tacks instead of rivets, zipper instead of button-fly) and going for some slick touches instead. Made from a lightweight 12.5oz. Kaihara denim, these jeans would make a great option for folks getting into the world of raw denim, who maybe don’t need all the bells and whistles and want to save some money in the process. They also omit the veg-tan leather patch in favor of a minimal R-tab on the back right pocket to further streamline the design.
For a jean that gets the job done, but flies under the radar at the same time, be sure to consider the Railcar Standard Issue. You might finally be able to get that one friend into raw denim with a jean like this!
Available for $140 at Railcar.
