selvedge raw jeans

Calvin Klein Jeans introduces Selvedge Denim for Spring 2017. Applying vintage techniques to classic designs, Selvedge Denim celebrates the spirit and heritage of American denim workwear, which was made popular in the 19th century during the California Gold Rush period.

Working with a premium Italian mill, the Calvin Klein Jeans Selvedge Denim is produced using super elastic denim and features a signature blue selvedge ID. The Selvedge Denim line includes outer jacket, shirt, men’s jeans in skinny and slim straight cut and women’s jeans in slim boyfriend cut.

And for those of you who are not familiar yet with selvedge denim: Selvedge is the edge produced on woven fabric during the manufacturing that prevents it from unraveling. By using only the selvedge end of the denim fabric to produce a garment, the cost of production are significantly increased as there are only two selvedges on every single complete fabric.

Pay attention to the amazing “natural” wash of these jeans around the knees. No artificial whiskering, but a truly worn in like look.

You can also buy very cool selvedge jeans for the dudes – Naked & Famous and there are a lot of different options at Mr. Porter.

And for the ladies – Levi’s, 3×1 (these feature the fringed hems, perfect for any fashion addict!), and GAP has a couple of pretty cool ones, too.

  1. I like the 3×1.

    BTW, It would be helpful to read about the tailoring (what figures look best in them) and sizing on the jeans that you show us.

  2. yup – I’ll try to mention sizing whenever I can and when I have tried on the jeans 🙂
