Won's recently picked up a new pair of black jeans to add to his Blackout collection: the Railcar Spikes X026 'Double Black Erthang' (that's what I call the X026 fabric). The man owns pretty much all the black jeans we carry at the store, but what makes these jeans a little more special to him is the fact that the X026 fabric is super ultra soft and lighter, making them a pretty good alternative to his mid-to-heavyweight denim collection.
Hand-picked and woven on the OG vintage shuttle loom, the 0306-V's from Momotaro are made from nothing but the best of the best Zimbabwe cotton. You're looking at one of the best selvedge denim in the world right here, my friend! Sitting at 15.7 oz, these jeans are definitely more rigid than a lot of other jeans that we have at the store, but let me tell you this: the break-in time is much shorter than what you may expect!
I had a chance to hang out with my buddy Michael Wong at the shop today. This kid is currently attending Emily Carr University of Art and Design, doing some cool artsy-fartsy sh*t (I graduated from that art school!). It was only right for me to borrow his artistic eyes for a few minutes for a quick shoot of my outfit.
