I’m going to start this article with a big-up to Sage. What was once a small denim brand among the Indonesian denim charge is now one of the tastemakers in Southeast Asian selvedge and one of the most frequent guests in our Fade Friday segment. If that doesn’t tell you that Sage is here to stay, I don’t know what will.
As part of its continuing 10th Anniversary collection, Sage is rendering its Slim and Slim Straight silhouettes in a new and unsanforized 20 oz. ‘Mastermind’ Deep Indigo selvedge denim. This heavyweight RHT denim was milled exclusively for Sage with a slubby, hairy texture and a silver x purple selvedge ID – features that you’ll love more and more as the denim fades and evolves. And evolve it will, just check our archive of mouthwatering fade submissions featuring jeans from the Indonesian denim label.
With both slim and slim straight cuts to choose from, there is something here for everyone who enjoys a trim jean with buckets of detail and patina potential. Each pair is handmade in Indonesia and comes with a single felled inseam with gold thread, hidden and painted arcuates on the back pockets, raised belt loops, hidden rivets, branded exposed rivets, and a custom double-layered leather patch to commemorate the anniversary.
Available for $260 shipped from Sage.
