9/3/2014 Featured this week— Self Edge x Sugar Cane SEXSC06
Right away you can tell by the hand of the denim that it’s a super different composition. That would be 50% cotton and 50% sugar cane fiber! It is woven loosely, the texture is slightly uneven and slubby, and it is fairly lightweight measuring in at 13oz. This denim is seriously amazing!
Another detail that stands out to me is the denim crotch reinforcement patch, which actually did prevent some major tearing along the crotch seam, without being an obnoxious bulky addition. The crotch area did clearly need a repair, but the seams remained intact. The pocket bags, however, uniquely made of a beautiful yellow Japanese sun stripe fabric, are nearly impossible to repair because of the way the fabric ages. It tends to thin out and rip along the stripe after heavy wear, so a full interior reinforcement is necessary for this particular jean.
