NW8 Heritage Slim Black 15oz Italian Raw Selvedge Mens Jeans
NW8 heritage-inspired jeans with a slim silhouette, perfect with a cuff. Modern tailoring innovation makes this a durable lifelong pair of jeans. This version is in our core 15oz Black Italian selvedge denim from Candiani, perfect for everyday wear.
Heritage 1950s styling with higher back rise and lower front rise
Medium front rise sits at the hip, high back rise hugs the waist
Perfect for guys who need a relaxed fit in the hips and seat and prefer a slim leg
Slim, tapered leg straightens somewhat from the knee to hem
Hem opening is wider than the E5, slimmer than the NW3
Perfect balance of providing a bit of room in the rise while still looking fitted through the leg

Fits true to size. Take your normal size.
Waist & Hip Stretching – Though pre-shrunk, raw denim stretches up to 2.5cm / 1" in the waist and hip over 30 wears. You may consider sizing down one size as a result.
Hemming – Our jeans are manufactured at 36" and 34" lengths. As a result, we offer free hemming. Once shortened below 34", your jeans cannot be returned or exchanged. You may want to try the fit first, and hem them second.
Inseam Shrinkage – Though pre-shrunk, our jeans lose 2.5cm/1" in the length on the first wash. We therefore add 2.5cm /1" to whatever length you request.
Denim Softening – Raw denim will feel rigid when first worn but will relax and soften over time. The denim will mould to your own body, fitting better with each wear.
See the Size Guide for more information.
Cold wash only, or the denim will shrink 5%
Wash inside out with mild detergent or none at all
They are Sanforized so will shrink in the length up to 1″, but shouldn’t shrink in the width
Raw denim will give up to a 1 1/2″ in the waistband, so the fit should be snug (but not restrictive) to compensate
