Crafted from 14oz Japanese selvedge denim, the 50’s Sloppy introduces a new silhouette for Autumn 2012. Taking its inspiration from the overriding theme of the season’s Plectrum by Ben Sherman collection, this jean references the styles worn by the motorbike riding rockers of the era, refined with a modernist aesthetic.
Starting with the pattern of a traditional straight leg, selvedge jean worn rolled at the cuff to show the quality and expense of the fabric used, volume has been added to the crotch and upper leg, whilst tapering off towards the hem. The result is a silhouette reminiscent of that worn by the Teddy Boys of the 1950s, creating a refreshing alternative to slim styles that have become the norm, while also providing a point of difference to wide or straight leg, utilitarian inspired denim.
