Stunningly gorgeous selvedge denim that's the result of classic technique and absolutely exclusive ingredients. There is texture and color in this fabric that seems almost impossible to achieve. The masters in Japan have created true denim art that we're able to offer at a value you won't find anywhere else. This is the rare world of selvedge denim. 

The first thing that truly jumps out at you is color. Each is the result of using ingredients that most mills will not even attempt due to the difficulty and cost.

The Charcoal - a wonderfully dark titanium grey that stands out from any other grey/black selvedge we've seen. Such a stunning color is achieved through dyes that use charcoal extract. There is a depth and complexity to the shade that's very unique.

The Perssimon - an earthy, woody, bright brown that glows with life. Such a stunning color is achieved through the use of persimmon fruit dye. The result is a richness of color that's hard to match.

The Sea Green Plant - showcases a return to truly old-world dye techniques by using extracts from the indigo plant. The resulting color is a seemingly impossible green-tinged blue. It's organic, subtle and like nothing else we've seen. The dye makes this denim come to life with its ability to age softly over time.

Texture is absolutely intense and serves to create an even more special look for each style. High slub yarns throughout create true depth that you can feel and see. Running your hand over the denim is a true experience. You rarely feel texture like this in a fabric. The irregular yarns also help expose the weft further to create an almost heather-like effect in each style. Finally, the purest organic cotton is used to spin the yarns, making this denim a true collector item. 
Vintage inspired rustic wool paired with our intricately constructed workshirt style - this is the all new Union Blue Wool Workshirt. Sewn in the USA at one of our best workshirt values.

One look at this special wool and you're transported back in time. It instantly reminded us of a vintage Union army wool uniform. That quintessential pale blue. The rustic wool feel. The slightly dusty, antique look aided by the addition of organic grey neps running throughout the fabric surface. This is a truly special style. The 9 ounce weight strikes just the right balance between warmth and wearability. Our authentic workshirt details from extensive triple needle work, to pen pocket, to gussets to chainstitch run-off are the perfect companion for this old-world wool. This is the winter workshirt to have.

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most pleasurable. Clean design, perfect fit, uniquely functional fabric. Waffle Crewnecks in fresh colors. Go with the Big Six and get our best value, pick a 3 pack or get one. No matter your choice, these are casually rugged, American-made perfection at a remarkable value.

We start with a classic long sleeve crewneck shape. It's tailored enough to work as a layering piece or a stand-alone. We enhance this core style with wide ribbed cuffs and a thick ribbed collar for a touch more ruggedness. The bottom hem gets a gentle curve and is finished with a clean overlocked stitch. It's a base you can feel comfortable in instantly. 

The fabric is what truly makes this garment. The waffle weave is what delivers true comfort and function. The weave itself helps create space that controls heat around your body. It also delivers the signature thermal look and beautiful box-like texture. The 6 ounce weight is a versatile sweet-spot and we garment wash to make things even softer right on day one.

From the launch of our CPO's, this style has always been the most coveted and popular version. It's not hard to see why. The CharcoalXBlack Wool Herringbone CPO. The pictures tell the story. Enjoy.

This Gustin CPO (Chief Petty Officer) is made out of wool herringbone straight from Japan. The rich colors in this style combined with the weave make it a real stand out. A wool blend in heather charcoal comes together with a jet black in a classic herringbone pattern. The weave allows the black wool to darken up the overall shade and provide a shadow effect to the grey hue. The color variation in the charcoal wool keeps it lively. At 9oz's it's extra versatile. It layers without feeling bulky, while also being able to stand alone on a cool night. The feel is plush and the cotton component makes for much less wool roughness. It's the stand-out CPO.

Consider this our challenge to you - we're offering the best value we've ever offered to help you enjoy a totally new selvedge experience - the world of monster denim. We're giving you $50 off this beastly style. Go extra rugged with this blackxblack version. We recently took a pair out on a recent crisp SF day. You're in for a fun ride and you'll be hard pressed to find a better entry point anywhere else.

Gustin jeans made from sanforized raw selvedge denim from one of the finest mills in Japan. This fabric is an absolute monster at 23 ounces. It's not just the weight that makes this rare selvedge nice, it's the density of the weave. This denim has an almost leathery feel. The yarns take on a rope-like character they're so thick. The double black warp and weft is the perfect pairing for such a rugged selvedge. Putting this denim on is a truly new experience. You feel the weight, you sense the reward you're in for at the end of this break-in process. Welcome to the heaviest weight denim club.

Plush wool rendered in a beautiful herringbone weave and rich charcoal and brownxblack color combinations. Paired with our 5 pocket fit, sewn right in the USA, offered at a superb value. Be warm this winter in style.

From feel to style, these are simply beautiful pants. Japan is creating some of our favorite wools this season. The color and feel are unbeatable and this style showcases that skill perfectly. The herringbone weave really defines this style. It lends the perfect sense of vintage formality. The v-pattern adds visual texture. The contrasting colors of yarn serve to highlight the herringbone weave. Deep charcoal and earthy brown against jet black. Even from afar, you can detect that this is no ordinary cotton twill. You see the thickness, you see the subtle fibrous texture of classic wool. Putting them on confirms your initial impression but leaves you even more impressed. You instantly feel the wool, but it's quite soft and not itchy. That suppleness comes from the cotton blend composition. These pants are equal parts heft, warmth and comfort in a refreshing way.
