SE1 Straight Wide Indigo 14oz Japanese Raw Selvedge Mens Jeans
The SE1's are a traditional workwear jeans inspired by early 20th century models. Classic five pocket style but with distinctive curved shaping and cinched back which are inspired by jeans worn by miners.
This particular denim from Japanese mill Kaihara is characterful and comes in an interesting cotton / linen blend which makes this a great option for warmer climates as we have found it is more breathable, paired with a looser cut you will find that you can easily wear it all year round.

Medium front rise sits at the hip, high back rise hugs the waist with a stunning fishtail and cinch
Works well for athletic body types who need a bit of hip and thigh room
Suitable for those who particularly like heritage styling

Linen is known for being strong, great for regulating body heat which means its suitable for cooler and warmer climates

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.
Wash in lukewarm water, preferably by hand with a wool or delicate eco detergent. Soak only for 10 minutes and then rinse twice first in lukewarm water, then cold water.
If using a washing machine, adhere to your machine’s delicate or woollen settings and use a mild detergent
Always dry flat, never in a tumble dryer and away from direct heat
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
