The Japan Indigo One-Wash Selvage. Made from a mid- to heavy weight denim fabric developed exclusively for Livid by the renowned Japanese fabric mill, Kurabo. This top of the line denim is a one-wash. Meaning, it has gone through a soft pre-washed treatment removing the stiffness, starch and excess indigo from the raw state of the fabric. Another plus, it also removes a lot of the shrinkage you’ll normally get from an unwashed fabric. Soft treatment, but still maintaining those favorable attributes you’ll get from a pair of raw, rigid, untreated pair of jeans. It still fades!
The Japan Indigo One-Wash Selvage is made with a dyeing technique called rope dye. A great attribute if you want the jeans of your choice to fade and become more and more unique with wear. When rope dyeing denim yarns the white core of the cotton yarn remains untouched during the dyeing process. With friction and wear as the layers and layers of indigo are worn off the surface of the fabric, the un-dyed core of the cotton yarn will appear, slowly leaving beautiful contrast fading to the surface. Ever tried it yourself? A definite essential for any denim enthusiast!.
Built with a narrow waistband, a super high front- and back rise, widely curved across the seat and wide from thigh through knee ending in a slightly tapered but wide leg, ending in a 24 cm opening in a 31” waist.
The Barnes Wide is perfect for someone with a more athletic build where normal issues to fitting is roomie waistbands and tight around the thigh and legs. In addition to this it is perfect for those who likes a more relaxed straight leg looks and are in search of a more edge look to their bottoms.
