Pushing the standard 13.5oz. Left Hand Twill XX-011 to the edge, the new 17oz-011 is LHT Selvedge on a heavy dose of steroids. While a +3.5oz.'s may seem nominal, the difference in aesthetic and feel of the fabric is immense. We went heavy on the One Wash's, as these things are essentially kevlar as Raw, perfect for those looking for a pair to stand up on their own!

This popular model by Pure Blue Japan reflects a modern silhouette with the slim cut and tapered leg opening. The fabric used for this denim is a left hand twill, a type of twill weave which is less common than the more common right hand twill. 

Denim manufacturers claim that Left hand twill tends to derive a softer fabric that other weaves. Another notable difference between the two twills is that Left hand twill will fade in a different way than Right hand twill. The rare left hand twill fabric coupled with the gray weft yarns used to give the subtle color undertone of the denim, make these a very unique pair of jeans.

*Model is pictured wearing a size 31, one wash. He weighs 59kg (130 pounds) and is 178cm (5’11”) tall.

**Available in either Raw or One wash denim fabric. Raw denim will shrink 1-2 inches around the waist after wash.
