Sugar Cane Keeps Your Legs Sweet with 16.25 oz. Sugar Cane Fiber Denim

Sugar Cane is legendary for many reasons, one of them being the fact they have produced raw selvedge denim with actual sugar cane fibers in it for decades. This time around, they’ve woven those sweet cane fibers into 16.25 oz. raw denim which has been used to build the SC40305A Slim Model Jeans.

Made in Japan, this pair of Canes provides a modern slim fit that has a narrow leg and regular rise. Hinoya has described the rise as ‘shallow’, however, judging by the images and measures, it sits comfortably in the mid-rise range in my view. That slim leg pairs beautifully with runners as exhibited by Hinoya’s model, but the leg opening is wide enough to slip over some service boots, too.

The star of the show, though, is that 16.25 oz. raw selvedge denim fabric, woven on vintage shuttle looms from 80% cotton and 20% sugar cane fibers and finished with a green selvedge ID. This mix of natural fibers has resulted in a slubby denim that will have a satisfyingly rough texture from the jump, ready to evolve into some high-textured fades and creases as the years roll by. The jean is constructed in classic five-pocket fashion with Levi’s-esque lemon yellow stitching, copper stitching, branded hardware, and a custom deerskin leather waistpatch.

But hold up – as well as being one-washed to remove most of the shrinkage, these jeans come in two different inseam options. Yeah, I had to double-take that, too. You can choose between 30″ and 34″ inseams, both of which have a chain stitched hem.

Available for $165 from Hinoya.
