Full Count are a brand widely known and respected for producing one of the finest modern interpretations of vintage jeans on the planet. With the 1110 model they have done just that. Featuring a high-rise on the waist, this jean has a classic vintage top block with 5-pocket construction. The thigh is slim and falls straight down from the knee, creating a naturally narrow silhouette. It is said that this particular model is based on the vintage 502xx model. As a stickler for detail, Full Count have decided to include a beautiful vintage style Waldes Zipper in the fly, a feature which isn’t so common in the recreation of heritage jeans.
The denim is a 13.7oz weight which is constructed strictly from 100% Zimbabwean cotton, has been hand picked at a rate of only once a year. The reason for this mirrors the principles that the company was founded on; quality and authenticity. By only picking the cotton once a year, the length and shape of each strand is allowed to maintain its original authenticity, eliminating the short, broken feel which is forged by modern farming techniques. Zimbabwean cotton is known for its thread count, and when woven, produces a luxuriously soft and durable denim. Once the cotton has been collected, it is woven at Shinya Mills on the very same vintage denim looms used to make Levi’s denim. A pink selvedge line adds the brand’s stamp of authenticity.
This raw model of the 1110Z is unsanforized, meaning that they will shrink a little in the wash, and if you are planning to rinse these jeans, you should buy a size up to ensure the perfect fit. Full Count’s solid construction is enforced by copper rivets concealed on the back pockets, and they even feature a triangular stitch as was common on the top button of vintage Levi’s models. The rear pockets hold the classic arches of the brand, whilst a goat skin leather patch adorns the waistband.
