Buying your first pair of raw denim can be a tricky process. You have to figure the odds and ends of getting the right fit, if it will shrink or stretch, and spending a good bit to figure out if you’re even going to enjoy wearing them.
Left Field’s taken a lot of the guesswork out of that process with their $135 All American Classic jean. It’s cut in their Atlas fit, which is roomy in the top and tapered on the bottom, from a 13oz. non-selvedge denim that was some of the last to come out of Cone Mills’s fabled White Oak Plant.
It’s been rinsed once, so the denim’s still raw but it won’t shrink anymore and a little bit softer and easier to break in. Top that all off with a Talon zip-fly, bandana print pocket bags, a foil embossed leather patch, and you’ve got a made in USA bargain.
Available for $135 at Heddels.
