If you’re a guy who likes a jean with plenty of room up top and a nice taper, you’re pretty spoilt for choice, these days. ‘High taper‘ is a term that has become more and more common in recent years which basically means a roomy top block and an aggressive through the leg, and Benzak Denim Developers has championed this style along with Portland’s Division Road.
These collaborative BDDxDR-711 jeans are black. Yep! They may not look it at first glance, but they’re made from a 14 oz. ‘black ecru’ Collect Mills selvedge denim that’s sulfur-dyed black on the outside of the warp yarn with a natural ecru weft. So, they’re not the darkest black jean, but you know you’re gonna get some nice off-white fades with these if you put in the work. And thanks to sanforization, you can get to work as soon as they land in your hands.
These six-pocket (2 coin pockets) black beauties feature a metal button-fly, black chambray pocket bags, bartack reinforcements, selvedge detail on the second coin pocket, BDD’s signature arcuates, and an exclusive Benzak x Division Road patch.
Available for $305 at Division Road
