Selvedge Jeans

Selvedge Jeans – The Conversation

Here’s a discussion about selvedge jeans. Below is a snippet by Adero and the whole thread is here, take a butchers!

“the selvedge doesn’t make it harder to wash,first of all.
second; just because it is selvedge it doesn’t make it a better denim.
so you are partly right there Pringle.

third:turnups with selvedge is just SO much nicer compared to wearing jeans with turnups exposing the split seam with zig zag stitching.
I WOULD NEVER-I REPEAT- NEVER wear turnups without selvedge.

CASSIDON: I don’t agree but do say that it is harder to make a jean using selvedge with-say- a bootcut. The actual flare will only end up on the inside of the leg.
But they do exist so it is not a major problem really.
It is a lot more straight (badaboom) forward to make a straight leg.
Perhaps that is what you mean with unflattering?

Also it would be impossible to have selvedge in both seams unless you do not want a jean with the exact same width around the thigh/crotch area as down at the ancle….
THAT -I say-would (probably, who knows…after all there’s no rules in fashion) be unflattering!!!”

IJIN Jeans + Selvedge Jeans

IJIN Jeans + Selvedge Jeans Here is an IJIN selvedge style that has been around for some time now : style J5207. This is from the IRRGLR (irregular) line Kurabo 13 oz denim with lots of  “pops “, egg yolk stitch in 4 stitch sizes,white vitello label on left ( no logo )

This has a victorian backstrap ( sewn up into the waist ) & the infamous 6th pocket overlaid on the back ( with an halfman embroidery sewn in real indigo thread )
Real indigo thread is used on all seams/bar tacks that would be normally sewn in black……this is a key IJIN detail. The indigo obviously wears back in colour with the denim.

This model has inside military hanging loops & a ticking lined back yoke. The back crotch seam is the only seam sewn as a triple needle ( indestructible!). All IJIN actual selvedges are cut extra wide as you can see by the cuff.
