  • Description

    What's a western fit you ask? It's the type of denim that sits higher and has enough room in the top block so you can throw your leg over a horse (or motorcycle) freely and hides that plumber's crack when sitting. It's also got enough room in the leg opening for a cowboy (or engineer) boot, but the leg is slim enough to look good on the dance floor. Putting all that together, the Wilkes sits up higher and is a not-too-full straight leg where you can comfortably fit over a boot. It's one of our favorite new fits for its clean look and functionality.

    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.
