Where the runway meets the street

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.  
Available now at Self Edge of San Francisco. See all the detailed pics after the jump.
