Raw jeans in stretch selvedge denim debuts

For the Fall 2015 season, we filled missing categories of jeans as requested by our customers and what we felt was missing from the collection. In the two styles below we answer more than a few.
First, our standard raw skinny jeans received an updated selvedge stretch raw denim version. Guys that have requested a selvedge version of our skinny jeans for more than 2-years only have to wait until the Fall. We started developing this selvedge raw with stretch denim years ago after moving all product manufacturing to the USA. However, at the time we had too many styles. As a small growing denim brand, we had to scale down the collection.
The Grand Street, our best-selling fit, gets a stretch selvedge denim version in the Fall. This gives men the choice of raw jeans with the ultimate comfort of stretch denim in a slim fit without having to go skinny. The addition, it is also made in selvedge to perfect the style.
Both jeans feature American-made Cone selvedge denim from the White Oak plant in Greensboro, NC. The fabric feels a little beefier than its actual 11.25 oz. weight suggests. The hand feels soft and the content of 93% cotton, 6% poly, and 1% elastic provides the denim with ample stretch.
