Oldblue Co.’s ‘Over Slub’ Denim is Some of the Slubbiest We’ve Seen


7.75″ cut


8.25″ cut

Overdose on slub with the Oldblue Co. Over-Slub Jeans. You can see the slub on these heavyweight jeans from a mile away, they practically look faded, and you know what that means – the fading potential on these is literally crazier than most of the jeans we’ve seen in a long time.

If you’re not familiar with slub, it’s the effect made by intentionally weaving short-staple yarn cotton into denim, AKA cotton twill. Oldblue had this heavyweight 18 oz. denim milled at Atlantic Mills in Thailand to their wild, slubby specifications, and now the denim community reaps the rewards.

Oldblue Co. has two models available cut from this stubby stuff – the 7.75″ and 8.25″ Cut. These measurements refer to the leg opening measurement, but both are relaxed in the top block, you just need to decide how much taper you want down the leg. If you want more taper, go for the smaller measurement, and go for the bigger measurement if you need a bit more calf room.

Both jeans are made by loving craftspeople in Oldblue Co.’s Indonesia-based factory, with all the classic 5-pocket jean details you know and love: Contrast stitching, burn-finish copper button fly, hidden rivets, chain stitched yoke and hems, indigo hickory stripe pocket bag fabric, textured cowhide leather patch, and glorious rear pocket arcuates.

Available for $185 from Oldblue Co.
