What is slubby jeans?

Slubby Denim

Admittedly, talking about “slubbiness” of denim is not usually the most exciting aspect of raw denim. In fact, most people wouldn’t bother to even notice this characteristic.  However, “slubbiness” plays as big of a role as the weight and fit of denim do.  Some labels even goes as far as to pride themselves on the their “slubbiness”.

According to thefreedictionary.com, “slub” in the textile industry is “a soft thick nub in yarn that is either an imperfection or purposely set for a desired effect“.  In terms of raw denim, it is when the denim manufacturer accidentally or intentionally causes irregularities in the yarn by means of knotting or twisting or using a mixture of different fiber lengths.  The effect is an uneven, bumpy, hairy, and rough texture; making for even raw-er denim (although many denim heads prefer the smoother and flatter alternative).

ETERNAL 888 DENIM DIARY: Week 1

Eternal 888 at work 2Eternal 888 at work 1

It’s officially started. My Eternal 888 15th Anniversary first week to work. It’s feeling rough on this new 14.5 oz irregularity denim from Kurashiki. It’s normal it will soften the next couple weeks to come. 888 is a regular straight cut of1950’s silhouette. Mid rise, roomy on thigh and snugly on calf. I need to do the big leg cuff-up like the way the 50’s style 🙂
