This coming spring '14, Flying Horse will be launching a limited edition jean. These are jeans of beautiful raw selvedge denim in their purist form. This will be a truly limited edition of 6 pieces only.
– “ OFF THE LOOM COLLECTOR JEAN
This unwashed Dry finish jean has been Rope dyed and woven on a Shuttle loom and is made from a tight construction 15oz RHT selvage long staple ring spun cotton. It is a special jean because the fabric has NOT BEEN SINGED OR SANFORISED. Its fabric has been taken straight off the loom and does not have any modern finishing processes. It is as the original jeans were made back in the old days.
Because it has not been singed the denim has a special hairy finish just like the original jeans had. The side seams will skew just like those original jeans did. Because of all above, with time and a little patience its wearer will be rewarded with a richness of wear only matched by dry jeans made in this old original way.
For the true denim enthusiast, we have made only 6 pairs of these jeans and they will be sold exclusively through our shop, located at 8 Newburgh Street, London W1.” –
