The 1952 is a slim fitting jean from veteran jeans makers, Full Count. It features a medium rise which sits tightly on the hips and is snug on the thigh. It then tapers down to the ankle to give a very slim silhoutte. This jean looks great on naturally slender shapes and is a perfect offering for those who want a modern slim jean in a traditional selvedge denim.
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.
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.
