Description

Up until the mid-1950s, the popular conception of denim was dominated by images of cowboys and pan-wielding prospectors. Then, in 1956, with the introduction of the first ever black denim (dubbed “The Elvis Presley Jean”) by Levi Strauss, everything changed. Ever since its rather transgressive opening act, black denim has become just as ubiquitous as its blue brother without losing its edge. Now, by popular request, it’s back in action at Taylor Stitch. The same careful construction, subdued detailing, and democratic fit that we’re known for, now available in 13oz Japanese black selvage denim. Everyone should have a pair.
