Nashville-based Imogene+Willie has long been one of our favorite, slightly-under-the-radar, indie denim makers. In search of creating the perfect pair of selvedge jeans that still incorporate the forgiving element of stretch without years of wear, we partnered with Imogene+Willie to source a fabric that would meet an extremely high standard of material quality. That led us to Japan, where we found the perfect blend of tough-wearing 13-ounce selvedge fabric with 3% stretch. The fabric is one of the toughest on the market, even winning over Imogene+Willie founder and denim aficionado Matt Eddmenson, who prior to this jean would only wear raw selvedge. To finish off the limited release in true Uncrate fashion, we blacked out the fabric, stitching, and hardware and gave each pair a water-dip finish to matte the color of the jeans from the first wear on. Cut in the brand's original and sought-after Barton Slim silhouette that's an ideal fit for most body types, it's a limited run of the jeans we'll be wearing for years to come.
