The 1840 from Full Count is a classic medium rise jean with a straight leg. Based on the much loved 1108, this style is a comfortable shape which gives an iconic silhouette. All of the brand’s recognisable features are there but this time they have added a weft yarn which is a wild cotton. It has a darker beige colour which gives this jean beautiful combinations of natural blues against brown when the fades appear. For a more traditional take on an already classic jean, this 1840 is more than worth a try.
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.
Full Count’s solid construction is enforced by copper rivets concealed on the back pockets, the top of the rear pockets are raised and so are the belt loops. 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. This denim 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.
