Taylor Stitch – Nihon Menpu Mills Copper Selvage Denim
One of the unique things about Taylor Stitch is they seem to conjure up great products every Wednesday morning. Each collection is unique, designed in San Francisco, limited in number and manufactured in California. Taylor Stitch focuses on fit as well as construction and will continue to slowly develop new offerings, working piece by piece to modernize classic staples that are both rugged and refined.
When Taylor Stitch first started, they were producing just button up shirts (Which, fit perfectly in my opinion). They are currently offering an array of items on their site. One of the items we wanted to cover was their denim series. We chose the Nihon Menpu Mills Copper Selvage Denim – Townsend Democratic Fit – 14.5 Ounces.
Nihon Menpu, has been producing denim & shirting in the artisan tradition, since 1917. The company produces premium quality fabrics utilizing manual shuttle looms to produce traditional, vintage style denims. One of the most famous mills in Japan and connoisseurs choice for denim, Nihon Menpu also use traditional (natural Indigo) dyeing processes, which date back centuries in Japan, to produce their varying shades of pure indigo.
The company focuses on their traditional work wear & vintage – ‘Americana’ inspired fabrics: The natural direction of pure indigo across all shades, from deepest pure indigo through to faded blue, is accompanied by black denim, & traditional caramel & natural colored flats in rigid chino shapes.
These pair of denim are:
- Medium rise with shape to keep the back waistband against your skin. Room in the thigh, tailored through the leg and some extra space to accommodate the boys.
- Sanforized raw denim will not shrink in the waist and leg. Instead, it will stretch where they feel tight. It will shrink roughly 1″ in length.
- 36″ inseam.
