The 60’s jean is an authentic recreation of early 60’s style denim. The fit is tapered with a relaxed rise and slightly more room at the thigh. Denim from the 60’s can often be distinguished by its slightly more blueish tint of indigo, as well as a slubby, almost fuzzy surface texture.
The 13oz fabric used for this jean is made of San Joaquin cotton, harvested in California’s Central Valley, the heart of the state’s farmland, nourished by fresh water that flows down from the mountains on either side of the valley.
With regard to the sewing process, core spun yarn–a yarn in which a base yarn is completely wrapped by a second yarn–with a thread count of 20 is used for the entire jean.
The paper patch is sewn on by hand. It’s just the right thickness so that once you’ve really started to establish a great fade, the patch will start to fray at the edges, revealing the dark blue denim underneath. Furthermore, for the patch on the 60’s jean, TCB have adjusted the seam by a few millimeters so that the corners of the patch take on a rounded shape as it wears down, which is consistent with classic 60’s denim. An impressive detail that speaks to the amount of thought that goes into all of TCB’s products.
