Freewheelers S601XX 1944-45 14oz Denim (Modern Straight Fit)
For this lot, the detailing and fitting are heavily inspired by those vintage Levis from around 1944~1945. These 'WW2' era style designs are the result of simplifying production due to limited resources during the war. Looking closely, you will notice many interesting details born from limitations but now brought to the ultimate state through FW's master craftsmanship.
This 14oz denim is specially developed by FW using long-fibre cotton with an uneven thickness woven with low tension, making up an amazing irregular look. Its subtle vintage hue grand indigo dye will gradually fade to a brighter tone with some big contrast. The vertical texture will become strongly enhanced and bring back the vision of Levis during WW2 but with a more irregular atmosphere. The HBT pocket bags have a soft feeling and inspired by the re-use of fabrications back in WW2.
Constructed with vintage machines, the overdyed cotton threads are a classic yellowish mustard colour. The doughnut style waist and fly buttons have a classic look and will slowly oxidise to a vintage look. Of course, this pair features rivet back pockets for more durability which is a classic denim construction method.
