Unique Garment 1001BG 14oz 'Before Dawn' Black Denim (Gym Fit)

Size Guide

In the early morning, there is an hour of complete darkness.... before dawn. This pitch black gradually begins to reveal glimmers of light, revealing the day is about to begin!

In a pitch black brand new state, UG introduces us to their vision for how the light can tell the story of our days.

In this collection, UG has developed another signature denim. This 14oz 'Before Dawn' denim is black sulphur thread dye for both weft and warp and is completed many times to achieve one of the darkest tones we have seen. Both the warp and the weft and in complete darkness! The vertical texture is strong and has a subtle neppy feeling. With wear and wash, you'll see white highlights appear just like the start of dawn, exposing the areas of wear and beautiful texture.

The continuation of darkness is carried across the entire denim. From the specially dyed copper rivets that require 6 months of soaking to the black coated iron buttons, the hardware will gain a high contrast aged look in time as they oxidise and chip. The royal-inspired, gold-stamped deerskin leather patch is super soft and has an amazing texture under the sunlight. The pocket bags feature a black thread-dyed HBT fabric that's comfy against the skin and durable.

We think you'll be impressed with UG's latest denim, lets's experience 'BEFORE DAWN'!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
