We are reaching out because we have some exciting news and updates to share: First off, thank you. We are absolutely thrilled by the support we have received from you in just these short two weeks. It’s INCREDIBLE!
658 people have pledge over $85,805 to our Kickstarter so far.
Our mission has always been to create the perfect jean and make it available to our customers in the easiest way imaginable. Your support has continued to drive us in this goal and we are working very hard to make sure you are receiving the highest quality denim and the best possible customer experience.
We have heard many of your requests for additional styles. With most of those requests revolving around releasing heavier denim. As of today we are introducing two additional styles:
Style #1: The Natural #4248 - 100 pairs limit
A 13oz sanforized natural selvedge with red selvedge ID. This is a special, limited edition denim that is a perfect companion to your indigo or black denim jeans. This jean will come with a zip fly and is available in both the New Classic and Slim Straight fit.
Style #2: The Heavy #9237 - 100 pairs limit
A thick 16 oz Japanese indigo selvedge. This jean ONLY comes in the New Classic fit and a longer than usual 36 inch inseam. It’s very heavy fabric and not for everyone. (in other words, it takes a while to break in).
There’s no “right” way to care for your jeans. Quality denim will look good under almost any circumstance. That said everyone has their preferred cleaning regimen. The other side show some of our favorites:
This one’s easy to explain: never wash your jeans. Ever. Many advocates of this method will only wash their jeans under dire circumstances — otherwise, they may put their pair in the freezer from time to time (studies show this kills bacteria). A dash of Febreeze™ helps, too.
This method offers a nice compromise. After wearing your jeans for at least 4 months, give them a 30-45 minute cold bathtub soak; we recommend a small amount of Doctor Bronner’s castile soap for this. Proceed to thoroughly rinse your jeans with fresh water.
To dry, lay your jeans flat over a clean towel. Start at one end, and roll them up together. This will absorb a significant amount of the excess water, so hang them up overnight and they should be dry in the morning.
If you insist on machine washing your jeans, run a “delicate” cycle with Dr. Bronner’s or Woolite Dark (do not add an extra spin cycle). Letting them dry overnight is ideal, but if time is of the essence, run your dryer on low/medium heat. Your jeans will feel a bit tighter than usual, and this is fine. They’ll stretch back before long.
