The wait is over! The first denim from the legendary White Oak Draper looms in over two years has just rolled out of their new home at Vidalia Mills in Louisiana. Vidalia is the first new mass-production denim mill opened in the United States in nearly a century and you can be a part of the history with some of the first jeans from their denim.
Left Field has secured some of Vidalia’s indigo 14oz. sanforized right hand twill denim with a red selvedge ID. It’s made from sustainably-sourced and U.S. grown BASF e3 cotton and cut and sewn in California, making it a 100% American-made jean.
It’s available for pre-order in both Left Field’s classic Greaser fit is a staple mid-century American silhouette featuring a mid-rise and a slim-straight leg with a very mild taper and the Atlas, a slim-tapered cut with a roomy top block that narrows significantly to the leg opening.
Check out our interview with Eric Goldstein of Vidalia to learn all about how White Oak’s Drapers got up and running again and what they have planned for the future of American selvedge.
