Taking unfettered inspiration from the original Levi’s 1966 501, the Sugar Cane 1966 in 14 oz Japanese Selvedge Denim is your first-class ticket to denim royalty without the fourth or fifth zero if you know what I mean. Featuring a full ‘n roomy top block with a slight taper, this model’s leg opening is smaller than the classic 1947 cut providing a modern, more youthful look without compromising comfort.
And when you get your hands on them, not only can you look forward to cool details like a paper patch, pink selvedge, and the unmistakable feel of Sugar Cane’s indigo dyed “Standard Denim”, you’ll have some of the most consistent, relied upon faders in the business raring to go. Just add a soak, wear, and a wash or two.
Made in Japan, the 66’s are perfect whether this is your first pair of raw denim or your fifteenth thanks to their super clean appearance – with no branding apart from the tasteful patch – and dedication to material and cut.
