When one of the best-known denim retailers in the country releases their own in-house jeans, you know the pressure will be on. Luckily for Blue in Green (the prestigious retailer in question) their brand new jeans stand up to the scrutiny.
Open since 2006, the folks at BiG have more than their fair share of denim experience and they’ve dialed all this expertise in to make the BiG-801 and BiG-802. Both jeans are cut from a 15oz. low-tension, unsanforized denim made by Kuroki Mills. It’s safe to expect stellar construction and hardware and each jean comes with a sheepskin patch designed by New York graffiti artist, TRAP IF. The 801 fit is called the Original High Rise Relaxed Taper, which we can expect to evoke the classic fit of the legendary 501xx. Meanwhile, the 802 offers a slightly more modern fit, the so-called Original Semi-Tight Straight. With laurel leaf buttons and hidden back rivets in both, how can you go wrong with either?
BiG has trimmed the fat for a jean without unnecessary bells and whistles that does its job: be a good jean.
Available for $235 at Blue in Green.
