About Selvedge Denim:
Selvedge denim is made on old style shuttle looms rather than modern projectile looms. In simple terms this means that the cross thread in the weaving process goes back and forth during the weaving process. But modern looms, shoot each cross thread through individually, hence the edge of the cloth is frayed rather than clean. No shuttle looms have be made for over 40 years as they can only make cloth about 30 inches wide whereas projectile looms can make fabric 60 inches or even wider for much less money.Because the fabric made on these looms is so narrow we need approximately 3 yards to make each pair of jeans. To maximize the usage, the traditional method was to have a straight outside seam and cut right up to the selvedge so that when you turn the jean up you see the selvedge edges.
All fits cannot be made from this fabric(due to width of this fabric being only 30 inches), only a straight fit, tapering or a classic comfort fit can be made using this denim
Always order more length for the turn-ups you want, also we will make the length about 1 to 2 inches more than given, mostly these denims are worn unwashed for a long time, they do shrink if washed, the extra length can always be turned-up initially.
