G-004 - Tight Tapered Deep Indigo G3 Series


Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Studio D’Artisan G3 Series Deep Indigo Tight Tapered fit has a medium high rise, featuring a roomy seat and thigh with a tapered leg and a narrow hem. This jean is made with a unique 14 oz. unsanforized Japanese Selvedge denim produced on one of Japan’s original 50-year-old power looms made by Toyota. This vintage G3 shuttle loom runs at extremely low speeds and requires hand operation to function. It yields a lower tension fabric with heavy slub yarns that have a rough texture like the denims of yesteryear’s workwear, with irregularities that will patina quickly and uniquely. The deep indigo uses a rope dyed yarn for the warp and weft to give a navy appearance for a jean that will fade to shades of blue with only core yarns being revealed through years of wear. The jeans are made in a specialized SDA fit with a slightly higher rise to give this low tension fabric some drape in the top block with a tapered but not too narrow hem. This rare and intricately produced shrink-to-fit denim will produce vintage style fading and become nicely fitted to the body of its wearer after the first wash or soak. Topped off with signature Studio D’Artisan touches like the goat skin leather patch, tonal navy herringbone twill pocket bags, embossed copper riveting, a blackened plated brass button fly, and a chainstitched waist, seat, and hem, these jeans are your first step on a journey of style presented to you by a 40-year-old producer of heritage denim.

Studio D'Artisan Denim runs slightly large, and for the G-004 we suggest sizing down roughly 2 sizes from your actual waist size. This denim is unsanforized “Shrink-to-Fit” and our rule is: size in order to have enough space to fit your hand in the waistline (+1-1.5" from normal), allowing for natural shrinkage (roughly 1.5” in the Waist and 2” in Length) from the cold soak/rinse process before wearing.

We recommend consulting our Sizing Guide and using our Virtual Size Chart.
