Roy Slaper is back to making jeans and we think he's created his best fitting jean yet. It's between a slim and straight cut with some taper to the leg using a new 13.75oz loomstate Cone White Oak denim that was developed exclusively for Roy. The denim has a nice heft to it and the fit is just perfect. The fabric's fibers really come alive after the initial soak with a little bit of hairiness which goes away after a week or two of wear. With a denim this rigid we're sure to see some wild worn in pairs later this year with a higher contrast wear pattern than his last lighter weight jean release.\

Roy is modeling the KS1001 jean in the photos after being soaked, hemmed, and worn for four weeks. Keep in mind that he sized up one from his true size for a roomier fit, if worn true to size the jean will fit a bit slimmer than shown in the photos but due to the cut of the upper block it's a jean that can easily be sized up or down for a slimmer or roomier fit without looking sloppy or too snug.

Disclaimer: These jeans are made of unsanforized denim, when washed the denim will shrink 1.5" in the waist, 3" in the length (inseam), and .3" in the knee/leg opening/thigh and about .75" in the rise. Please keep this in mind when choosing your size. The denim will also stretch in the waist up to 1" after approximately 30 wears.
