Freenote Cloth Belford - 14.5oz Kaihara Denim

The Belford is a true straight fit that sits up high with a full top block. The extra room in the thigh extends straight down for a generous leg opening that's great with engineer boots or rolled up for a lower profile sneaker or shoe.

Freenote's first propriety denim is made by Kaihara Mills, and features ultra dark warp yarn woven with a natural weft. The weave is tighter and features a medium slub, so the resulting denim will fade more quickly. The tighter weave also results in a faster indigo chipping process and yields more pronounced fades.

As Freenote has always been about the details, this denim is no exception. They now have a custom selvedge ID in antique gold ticking. This gold selvedge ID matches the same thread color of their top stitching.
