Your light-weight denim line-up

Your light-weight denim line-up

Wherever you may be in the world we're sure there's a need for something a little lighter on the legs when the weather warms up. Before we get the ball rolling and introduce you to our light-weight line-up we thought it'd be best to bring our new visitors up to speed on some terminology when talking about denim weights. 

It’s super simple, the weight of denim is measured in oz per square yard. The denim weaving process is where the weighted magic happens. The thicker the yarn fibre used to create the fabric, the denser and heavier the denim will become. Dense heavy denim fabrics have insulating properties while less dense lighter fabrics allow for better breath-ability. But, today is all about the light-weight kit we’ve got in store for you.

B-01 SLIM 12 oz. steel blue selvedge

The warp yarn on the steel blue selvedge denim is much lighter and brighter than the weft. Fading is an afterthought when it comes to the steel blue denim. We developed it as an alternative to your heavy denim option. The light-weight 12 oz. fabric falls nicely and makes for a fresh summer look.

B-01 SLIM & B-03 TAPERED 13 oz. indigo selvedge

The 13 oz. INDIGO SELVEDGE has an easy on the eyes mid-tone hue. 13 oz. is considered an entry-level mid-weight denim. Although, it's more than suitable for all year round wear. If you're looking for something of the unique sort, then keep a lookout for the selvedge on these jeans. Candiani has woven this very fabric with a unique selvedge colour id.

BDD-711 grey blue 13.5 oz. LHT

The BDD-711 is a regular fit with a longer rise, dropped crotch, roomy thighs and tapered legs. If you're looking for something with a bit more room in the top block for extra breathability and a loose feel our light-weight  BDD-711 should do the trick.

BDJ-01 COWBOY JACKET 7.5 oz sand linen selvedge

If you're looking for something light up-top we've got you covered. Earlier this year we rolled out our BDJ-01 and BDJ-02 in two new fabrics.

This light-weight cotton-linen blend is woven just like denim with an (off) white weft, and a coloured warp. It's a crispy and breathable fabric, it makes for the perfect summer alternative to any denim fabric.

BDJ-02 RIDER JACKET 11 oz. industrial blue selvedge

The warp of this unique 11 oz. denim is dyed with a special petrol like industrial blue indigo colour that represents a worker style look. The weft is dyed in a greyish tone that adds more character to the outside of the fabric. It's an unusually unique colour, it'll definitely turn some heads when worn out n' about. The industrial blue selvedge is made by our ore European partner Candiani, Italy.
