Freewheelers 14oz "Vanishing West" 601XXC Denim (1937 Version)

Size Guide
Like a black-and-white snapshot of workers from the past, Freewheelers have recreated some truly amazing denim inspired by American 1930s styles!

This pair has been constructed with 14oz denim specially developed by Freewheelers. Compared with their bestselling 1951 601XX model, this fabric has been dyed to create a darker, deeper indigo colour! The fabric features the perfect amount of mild slubby texture thanks to the slow, irregular weaving process. With time, this pair will fade to a beautiful sky-blue look with plenty of indigo contrast!

Speaking of details, this denim has a ton! First up, this pair features a cinch-back waist referencing the time in denim history when denim changed from "waist-overalls" to the familiar 5-pocket design we know and love today! The beautiful deerskin leather patch featuring the "Vanishing West" buffalo design, and "V.West" back pocket red tab pay homage to the classic Levi's design of the 1800s! The yellow enamel buttons add tasteful pop of colour. With time, these will naturally chip and age to a soulful look! For added durability, the hidden back pocket rivets and chain stitch construction ensure you can wear this denim for a long time to come!
