Roy’s Jeans – The Cone Mills Project
Roy Slaper is finally back with a couple new cuts of jeans that are made up of a custom fabric from Cone Mills made exactly to Roy’s specs. This is the first time in over three decades that Cone has produced an unsanforized fabric for anybody, and therefore we feel that this is history in the making.
The denim is a loomstate unsanforized indigo denim that clocks in at 13oz per square yard in it’s raw state. The fabric has a slight gray-cast to it and feels far heavier than it’s stated weight due to it’s weave and loomstate nature. The jeans themselves come in two fits, both a slim and a straight leg. Both silhouettes are slightly modified from past iterations of Roy’s straight and slim fits.
He has improved and tweaked everything surrounding the production of these jeans. The stitching of the body is even finer and more accurate, including a lined coin pocket. The rear pocket hems now have a hand-done welt in them, mimicking the vintage style belt-loops found on many of the best Japanese brands.
Both these new jeans are on sale at all three Self Edge stores and on their online store at 9am (PST) the same day.
