Dropping by popular demand, we are delighted to announce that the Slim Tapered and Slim Straight variants of PBJ's "Extra Slub" Black Selvedge Jeans have just landed through our doors. Back in 2020 our hopes and prayers for a fabric that closely replicated the "Rain" texture of the coveted "Aizome" Series Jeans (but could still yield killer fades) were answered, with the introduction of the rope-dyed EX Series Jeans. Fast forward to 2021, PBJ graced us all with their super stealthy black iteration of the EX fabric, the EX-019-BB Jeans. Any doubts we initially had that the streaky texture would be lost in the deep black sulfur dye of the jeans were silenced immediately, and it only felt right to add two new silhouettes to the ranks.

Sulfur Dyeing

Sulfur dyeing a fabric with this level of slub is no easy task. It is difficult for cotton to easily absorb that quantity of dye in a way that produces the perfect shade of royal black. Thus a tedious method is utilized, of applying 50% of the dye to the yarns, air oxidizing before repeating the process in order to achieve the deep black color of the jeans.
"How do these fade?" you ask. Well, compared to rope dyed denim which typically yields high-contrast fades, the fading profile of sulfur dyed fabrics are much more slow and subdued. Over a long period of wear, you can expect these jeans to gradually fade to a dull gray color.
A property of this fabric that we love is how the streakiness of the denim is sent into overdrive once it has gone through a wash. Be sure to grab yourself the raw version and chuck 'em in the bathtub if you want to experience this evolution firsthand! If you want to play it safe with the sizing though, we got you - the Black EX series is also available in one wash.

The Slim Tapered Cut

PBJ's Slim Tapered -013 cut is aesthetically one of the most eye-pleasing silhouettes, period. Thanks to PBJ's keen eye on client feedback, the cut has seen numerous updates over the years to ensure that the silhouette doesn't cross the border into the "Skinny" realm.
For those of you with thunder thighs and glutes though, you might want to re-direct your eyes a little further down the page (or hop on over to the Relaxed Taperedmodel). Trust us when we say the rises are low, there won't be much wiggle room if you are used to a spacious top block.

The Slim Straight Cut

If you were clenching your calves up until this point - you can relax them now.
PBJ's Slim Straight -005 cut is a modern take on the classic straight leg jean. Without sacrificing that wider leg opening (boot wearers rejoice), the Slub Masters have maintained that all-important comfort factor while keeping the aesthetic clean.
