NW8 Heritage Slim 14oz Indigo Japanese Raw Selvedge Mens Jeans
Our NW8 cut has a curved waistband, allowing the back to sit higher than the front, offering additional support and comfort. This cut is wider through the leg than the E8, making it the perfect classic taper.
This cut is suitable for all body shapes, especially those who want a classic jean that can be dressed up or down.
Modern tailoring innovation makes this a durable lifelong pair of jeans. 14oz weight indigo selvedge denim from Kurabo or Kaihara Mills makes this a classic raw selvedge denim jean you’ll want to wear forever.

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 – We will add 1" to any inseam request/ custom or standard to allow for shrinkage after the first wash. e.g. a 34" inseam request will be finished to a 35".
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 by 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
