Here we have something for the true denim lover and experts out there. These Sugarcane 1955 Japanese Selvedge jeans are quite hard to come by.  Based after a early-mid 1960’s Levi’s 501 cut which features a slightly slimmer cut than what was out in the 1940’s with a real deadstock Scovill Zipper.  The zippers are from the early 1950’s, and when Sugarcane runs out of these zippers they will discontinue production on these jeans.  The jeans come in a special edition box that houses the jeans and a reproduction of a New York Times Newspaper from 1955.  The jeans come loaded with the works… heavy 14-ounce, double ring-spun selvage denim produced on the original narrow shuttle looms employed back in the 1930’s, including a color and weave matching to the shade of blue utilized in the manufacturing of the original 1955 dungarees with red-line selvedge.
