The 20’s Jean is one of TCB’s iconic models, inspired by the decade when jeans were once worn with suspenders and they always had a cinch back to adjust the size of the waist. This jean is an authentic reproduction of a vintage garment owned by TCB from 1922, the year in which belt loops started to appear, with the addition of slight design modifications that form part of TCB’s overall interpretation.
The material used for this jean is a 12.5oz Memphis cotton, selected for its ability to replicate the true vintage look and to create impeccable fades. The yarn count for both the warp and weft is 8, giving the 12.5oz fabric a deep blue indigo color quite reminiscent of classic denim from the 1920’s.
Before selvedge was that shade of red we all know and love–a trend that began in the 1930’s–it was actually white, and slightly wider. In the spirit of authentic repro, for the production of TCB’s exclusive 20’s fabric they have used white selvedge and added an extra 8 threads to give the selvedge a smidge of extra width.
An important final note: the belt loops are made with a different fabric than the rest of the jean, because this was the way it used to be back in the 20’s, when belt loops, only just beginning to gain popularity, were typically considered a not-completely-necessary finishing touch and sewn on after the production process was already completed.
