Roy presents the “Big Brother,” made in Greensboro, North Carolina. The mill produced an 11oz denim with pure indigo dyed warp yarns and natural weft that’s reminiscent of the “Deeptone” denims of the ’40s and ’50s. Roy himself claims these are the closest thing to owning a dead-stock pair from the era. Unique details include thick cotton duck pockets, hand chain-stitched “Roy” on the inside, and a cinchback with steel hardware in the rear. They can be found through SelfEdge in store and online for $360.
