The Hill-Side Jeans are hand-made in Okayama, Japan at a small, highly regarded factory using The Hill-Side Mills custom selvedge denim, woven on 1930s Toyoda shuttle looms at a tiny, under-the-radar denim mill a short drive from the sewing factory.
The Hill-Side Mills denim features moderate slub yarns in both the warp and the weft, resulting in a unique but subtle overall texture. The finished jeans are washed once in order to eliminate shrinkage and make them ready to wear right away.
- Slim-straight fit - Discreet branding and generic trims evoke WWII-era jeans, which had minimal decoration and details in order to comply with wartime rationing - Cotton herringbone twill pocket bags - Military "laurel leaf" waist button - Blank leather patch - Blank copper rivets - Hidden back pocket rivets - Back pockets attached in one continuous stitch - The Hill-Side twill tape label hidden inside right back pocket - Selvedge at coin pocket - One wash
