The BDD-516 is a mid-high rise slim jean designed for most body types with a moderately roomy seat and thigh, tapered leg, and a narrow hem. The exclusive Special #1 denim developed with Collect Mills is a 14 oz. right hand twill, medium weight Japanese selvedge denim. With a consistent low tension weave using rope dyed yarns with a slight slub, this denim has a natural elasticity and will be comfortable upon the first wear. The deep dark indigo of the Special #1 will fade nicely with prolonged wearing and washings in a warmer sepia-colored cast with high contrast for an iconic, aged fade with considerable variation throughout. To highlight the significance of the exclusive fabric BDD developed with Collect Mills, a yellow and green selvedge line is used to represent indigo in its initial state before darkening to deep blue. Benzak is clearly identifiable as a highly finished jean with exceptional consideration applied to each detail. A real nickel button fly and blackened rivets, 10 oz. chambray pocket bags, chainstitched and bartack reinforced throughout, lapped overlock seams, and seven different thread weights are used for an elevated build. For those who want a jean that looks equally good new and heavily broken in, look no further than this hardwearing go-to from Benzak that artfully combines craft obsession with extensive heritage knowledge.

Benzak Denim runs slightly large, and there will be variation in size depending on the fabric used. Generally we suggest sizing down 1-2 sizes from your Actual Waist Measurement (Body). This denim will stretch 1" in the waist with one month of regular use, and shrink .5" upon first wash.

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