Two things called my immediate attention when I first read about these jeans:
One: They are light weight, which makes them especially wearable during the warmer summer time, and
Two: The real amazing price of $70 for Japanese Selvedge.
Here’s some more info about the collection:
We source the cotton ourselves from northern Japan, in an area renowned for its fresh water that produces exceptionally durable cotton. The raw cotton is then taken to a 70 year-old denim mill in southern Japan, where it’s woven on a vintage shuttle loom. The final cut and sewing is done at an assembly facility in Los Angeles.
All denim is rope-dyed, unsanforized; no harsh chemicals used during finishing, and no pre-shrinking chemicals are used either
Material: Japanese raw selvedge denim
Weight: 10.5 oz
Fading: No washes, no distressing
Fit: Offered in slim and slim-straight; 34″ inseam, available in the following waist sizes: 28, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 36, 38, 40

Please be aware, when buying these jeans, that they are totally unsanforized and therefore, they may shrink when you first wash them
Currently Combatant only offer menswear, but they haven’t ruled out expanding into women’s clothing at some point in the future.
You will be able to buy the jeans from their website soon.
