BONCOURA 15oz '66 Black Denim (Narrow Straight Fit)
This feels like vintage denim never died in the 60s and became even better!
BONCOURA creates elegant designs with unmatched expertise in leveraging quality materials and resources from around the globe. Taking inspiration from the present and the past, they have created a new standard of quality menswear.
This '66 fit has a comfortably mid-high rise, roomy thigh and slightly tapered leg opening. Inspired by the 'Honourable age' of vintage Levi's denim (the final years of real vintage denim in the 1960s), these are creations as if real vintage denim never ended in the 60s.
Released initially as a limited-edition anniversary item, BONCOURA has reissued the '66 Black denim model as part of their standard line. For those who missed out the first time, now is your chance to get some of the highest quality Japanese denim one can find! Woven on vintage shuttle looms, the texture of the 15oz denim is smooth to touch, but subtly uneven due to the unique weaving method. The warp has been black Sumi-dyed to create a tasteful charcoal look! With time the denim will age to a contrasted monochrome look revealing the lighter undyed core of the yarns and weft!
Among Japanese denim brands, Boncoura is known for having some of the highest standards and an uncompromising approach to quality, which is reflected in their amazing details! The deerskin patch is made from ultra-thick, premium-grade hide normally reserved for deerskin shirts! The inner pockets are made from a specially-developed, shirting-grade HBT fabric which is silky smooth yet highly durable. These have been hand-printed using vintage typewriter machines for some added vintage flair! This pair has been chain-stitched using vintage machines to ensure the denim remains reliably durable for many years to come!
