Your favourite specialist denim

Recommended Posts

Whats your favourite specialist denim, I mean your slubby, neppy, raw indigo, crazy rare dyeing technique, or cotton hand picked by virgins denim. Fit has no place here. All about the fabric. 

 

I just bought some Denim Is Edwin, Nihon menpu (slim taper) and I'm loving the green of the indigo and how neppy the fabric is.

not my favourite but probably most unique i've seen some pretty impressive fades for N&F's rainbow core jeans (https://instagram.com/p/52S5UtqSaq/?taken-by=dutildenimshop) (i don't know how to use insta links they don't show up right)

Holy shit.  Those are ugly as sin. 

haha i still think it's pretty impressive that someone could wear them for long enough to get fades like that.

Normally, or historically, it would be us asking the mod to put your stuff down.....

I actually like the idea of the thread, and although there is plenty of denim out there I haven't seen and touched myself, which makes me no expert of nothing, I nonetheless have a very special place in my heart for the Sugar Cane Okinawas.

There's a lot to be said for Anne Summers 'wipe clean denim'. Not raw or selvedge but definitely falls into the specialist category. wrangler_ad_1_large.jpg

That's just called turning your jeans inside out. You can beat N&F to it.

i find it funny when people into raw denim are outraged at what N&F does most of us aren't their target market basically half their stuff is stretch nowadays.

I actually think some of their core lines and  collaborations are quite good. I've had their NFXONI,  NFXMOMO and the 22oz elephants. Good jeans, it's the scratch and sniff, glow in the dark, rain bows etc that do them no favours with the Sufu crowd. I have no problem with NF really

i love almost eveything N&F does but they just aren't my company i wouldn't buy most of their jeans but as you mentioned they do make some nice stuff especially the MiJ jeans or Okinawa special, i just feel like they get a lot of hate from people who aren't the target audience for that specific jean like rainbow, glow in the dark etc..

APC had a pair like that many years ago. I actually bought some, during my APC fanboy phase. Apologies.

Probably everyone in this thread will be remembered that from the last he bought
because it's the greatest experience,recent experience last time.What is memorable,what is better and most importantly how and why it is better in comparison with something ?Past purchases for the owner of jeans already seem to be known to other people.In this he is sure. Therefore,if you do not dissemble,many will choose the latter.
All this is easily predicted for a possible scenario of development of the topic.
Well so I thought ONI 575.Very tight weaving,the inner side of the thread remind the Board for hand washing (people aged must remember that),wave yarn,relief threads.After soaking the color is highly saturated,it becomes black and blue (not purple ink).Together with extraordinary pile that seems quite extraordinary.
Someone says that it reminds them of some models IH, still, the denim seemed special.

If to return to earth,very many different beautiful denim.In particular, he had produced earlier,for example SDA d-1580.........PBJ xx003.These are just examples and they have me there.
If you want,I can take a photo,but for everyone here it is clear that it could affect my psyche,but the other will remain calm.

In General, it is an endless topic. :)

Collect (Japan Blue Group) 22.5oz double indigo (warp and weft) denim, sadly available with a minimum order of 500-1000m!

Heavywight jeans for life!

Wish I could afford enough for 200+ pairs of jeans that were unique to me, sadly will have to settle for deep blue warp white weft 22.5oz denim, which should be awesome as well...
