Self Edge just got a fresh batch of the Sugar Cane 1966 Jean, everyone’s favorite 501 reproduction with 1960s detailing, so get ready to don the perfect jawns for the forthcoming summer of love. If you’re channeling the sixties in any area of your wardrobe, or even your political/philosophical ideology, you might wanna grab a pair of these before they’re gone.
If you’re not already familiar, Sugar Cane remains an accessible entry point to Japanese denim, and a really solid, well-respected one at that. If you’re looking for highly considered vintage-inspired garments at a good price point, look no further than the Toyo Enterprise denim giant.
With a relaxed straight, slightly tapered fit, it fits the bill for those who might find the leg opening on the much loved 1947 fit a little too wide. The ’60s details include period-accurate color and weave 13 oz. ring-spun selvedge denim, paper patch, and lack of rivet reinforcement on the back pockets. Do me a favor and wear them with a raw hem.
Available for $255 at Self Edge.
