This item is part of a small batch production run and may not be restocked again.
The ‘N’ in its name stands for ‘new’ because it’s an updated version of the previously discontinued BDD-710, which has been part of our first collection back in 2013. Originally developed as a vintage cut, we took the 710 base and tweaked it towards a modern update of this cut. BDD-710N is considered relaxed, has a long back rise, and the legs slightly taper to an easy hem opening. It comes close to the silhouette of the European made B-04 RELAXED.
Low tension 12 oz. RHT can be considered a lighter version of our 14 oz. special #1 fabric. It has a similar loose weave construction with irregular yarns, and the same indigo cast has been used for the warp yarns. Besides the obvious weight difference, another main difference can be found in the garment treatment used for all styles made with this fabric; they have received the one-wash treatment, which means the garments have pre-washed in the factory. This reduces the break-in time tremendously, providing a comfortable fit from the very first wear day. When water penetrates cotton fibres, they tend to shrink and stabilize, and become more compact. This, combined with the loss of sizing (starch, that makes the fabric stiff on raw denim), creates a beautiful deep blue colour with hints of lighter tones, that will brighten up further by wear and wash. The fabric is woven by Collect and the garments have been washed under the supervision of sister company Japan Blue Jeans.
