This pair of jeans has an amazing fit and an intense black on black look. Since it is raw denim and has no elastane, they won’t stretch as the usual skinny jeans do, so we always recommend going up a size in this one. They break in beautifully if you just give them the time. After 6 months they will tell your story, slowly turning into your second skin.
For the black style we've chosen an inky, jet-black, sanforized raw selvedge denim. This style uses an extremely dark warp woven with a black weft. The result is blacker than black. With dense 13.0oz denim, it feels serious and more substantial than you’d expect from such a light fabric, giving fabulous wear-in features. To keep the dark look going we've sewn these with black thread, used black leather for the patch and custom dark trims
All our five pockets are cut exclusively using the finest selvedge denim, from Italy’s premium Mill Candiani. Then carefully sewn with the natural edge of the fabric tightly bound to ensure longevity. We have deliberately chosen raw denim, as we couldn’t have it any other way. Take the time and enjoy the process of breaking them in.
Be kind to your El Solitario® Jeans and wash them as little as possible. We recommend NOT washing before six months of hard use to prevent shrinking and fading. When in need for a freshening up, turn them inside out & soak them separately for 30 minutes, in cold water with a mild detergent, gently swirl them to loosen any set-in sediment & line dry. Doing this you will ensure yourself many years of happy use.
NOTE: The word selvedge comes from the term “Self-Edge” which is the woven strip on both sides of a roll of fabric. It is a clean, heavyweight, premium quality denim that is painstakingly woven on traditional shuttle looms. Selvedge jeans are crafted with major care.
