Roy KS1001 Kinda Special Jeans - 36" UNWORN DEADSTOCK


Quote

The KS1001 Kinda Special is a jean that sits somewhere between a slim and a straight. With its higher rise and fuller leg, it’s reminiscent of a classic Levi’s 1947 501 fit but instead of being straight through the whole leg, it has a slight taper that gives it the slimmer, more modern look which can be sized down for a slim fit or sized up for a more relaxed but not baggy fit.

The denim is a custom 13.75oz unsanforized loomstate selvedge denim made from 100% cotton by Cone Mills. What makes this particular denim “kinda” special is that the indigo yarns are dipped 8 times to recreate the look of the deadstock denim that he used for his RS01 jean and feels heftier and more rigid than the 13.75 oz weight suggests.

As expected, the KS1001 features many of the details found in previous jeans such as the shell stitching on the fly, chainstitched “Roy” embroidery on the pocket, and copper rivets. The leather patch is a new thinner design with artwork done by Roy and for the first time, it includes not only the name of the jean but also the size and model number. The back pockets and coin pocket are lined with canvas and the pocket bags are loomstate and sewn in a way to ensure even shrinking after the first soak.

Like with past releases, the jeans are all made by Roy from start to finish and only available in small quantities.

DETAILS

    • Name: Roy KS1001 Kinda Special
    • Weight: 13.75 Oz.
    • Denim: Custom made loomstate selvedge denim made from 100% American Pima Cotton by Cone Mills
    • Other Details:
      • Loomstate pocket bags
      • Lined back and coin pockets
      • Tin plated brass buttons and copper rivets
      • High stitch count
      • Leather press with artwork done by Roy

These jeans were bought new by me in 2014. I was saving them for the future. Since then my weight has changed and they won't fit properly. I have 5 pairs all in identical New Old Stock condition. 

They were $340 new and won't ever be available again.

      I have a new pair of Roy's Very Nice Pocket Bag Jeans, sold exclusively at Self Edge and still with the pocket tag affixed. The wings of the tag are a bit wrinkled, they came to me like that.
      Heads up that the waist is smaller than my other size 32 Roys, which preclude me from wearing them. I wore them around the house for an hour or two, so there are some light creases behind the knees, but those would quickly work out (see photo).
      If I recall and based on the leg twist, these are cold rinsed (can't confirm because Self Edge took the page down for them).
      Inseam is 35.5" (original hem), hem is 8.5"

      Hi,
      I wanted to share my experience with Spare jeans, a Montreal MTM jeans/jackets, family-owned, operation. I had the pleasure to meet with Prospero Rey, his wife and his kid. I'm in the process of having a jean made, so expect some updates to this post.
      First let's get the price out of the way: 200CAD + taxes for a custom pair of jeans. Very reasonable for what you get IMO.
      He only uses Japanese denim, from Kaihara, Kuroki and Nihon menpu.
      He only has a few rolls available but can order about anything from those mills, as long as he feels he can use the whole fabric roll for other customers (so probably not ultra-heavyweight, ultra-neppy or very special denim). He can only order 59 yards roll and doesn't want to waste anything.
      He doesn't seem like a fabric nut and has a very small selection in the shop, which seems fair considering the size of the operation. On the other end, he seems extremely detail-oriented on the making itself.
      He uses old sewing machines, a Mitsubishi for the chain stitches (he is looking at getting a Union Special).
      Talking with him was a pleasure, and I thought I'd give him a try and report back. I'm passionate about clothing, and wear a mix of sartorially inspired outfits, but also like to venture into workwear from time to time. I'm already familiar with high-end Japanese denim (either because I could see them first hand or try them on, or knowledge gathered from the internet) and own a few quality jeans (a Momotaro, a Blackhorselane, a couple of nudies).
      My idea was a pair of jeans inspired by vintage levis (1947). I'm not a repro fanatic, even though I like vintage-inspired clothing, so I didn't want a perfect repro (although I'm sure you could have one made if that's your thing).
      I went with a fairly high rise, straight leg fit, using a Kaihara 14.5oz denim. I chose no pattern on the pockets, copper rivets (hidden on the back pockets), button fly, striped cotton half pocket lining in the back pockets, classic white Japanese organic cotton pocket bags at the front and classic gold stitching.
      Nothing fancy, something simple and easy to wear. He showed me some pairs he made with flat felling instead of lock stitching along the inside leg seam. Everything was very clean and well made. He also showed me some denim jackets and cinch back jeans with external suspender buttons.
      It started with trying on a pair of try on pants. He didn't have any 30 sizes left so you will see me wearing a 31 on the pictures, hence the not so perfect fit. It was already quite good though and we only had to make minor adjustments to the fit. I, unfortunately, didn't take enough pictures of what he can do on the sample jeans he showed me. Some stuff is pretty funky but those are customer's demands.
      I hope this will catch your interest and will update with more pics from the making (he will send me a video) and from the finished product.
      Thanks for reading!
