The Studio D’Artisan FOX-001 is made in an adapted Relaxed Tapered fit with a true mid-high rise, featuring a roomy seat and thigh with a strongly tapered leg and a very narrow hem. This jean is made from the natural color organic Fox Cotton, hand-bred from 5,000 year old tea cotton strains, once extinct but now revived by farmer and scientist Sally Fox. This superior ancient fiber has exceptional density, strength, UV resistance and greater insulation compared to modern cotton, and is perfect for vintage shuttle looming to create denim with texture that will age beautifully and comfortably. This Roadrunner version of the Fox Cotton comes in an all-season 15 oz. unsanforized Japanese Selvedge denim that has a medium tension, slight slub, and an olive green cast to provide a new take on true antique style fading. Made in SDA’s Relax Tapered fit, the pants are adapted from their signature 107 to have a higher rise, wider thigh, and a more drastic taper to the leg to accommodate thicker calves while maintaining a narrower hem. The result is a great fit that combines vintage styling with modern sensibilities, in a shrink-to-fit fabric that will form to the body after the first wash or soak. Topped off with specialty Studio D’Artisan touches for the Fox Cotton series like an embossed pony hair leather patch and herringbone twill pocket bags, combined with signature details like 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 into the past by way of present styles, transported to you by a standout 40-year-old producer of heritage denim.

The Studio D'Artisan Fox-001 is an unsanforized, “Shrink-to-Fit” denim, and we suggest sizing down roughly 0-1 size from your Actual Waist Measurement. Our rule for yielding the best sizing result with unsanforized denim is: Use Our Method to compare your best fitting denim, find the closest match in waist, and then purchase the next size up to account for the 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.
