FOX x G3 - Relaxed Tapered Fox Cotton G3 Series


Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Studio D’Artisan FOX x G3 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 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, breathability, and insulation when compared to modern cotton, and is perfect for vintage shuttle looming to create denim with texture that will age beautifully and comfortably. Utilizing this Fox cotton on one of Japan’s original 50-year-old power G3 looms made by Toyota yields a unique 14 oz. unsanforized Japanese Selvedge denim with an indigo warp and light brown cast to provide a new take on true antique style fading. This vintage G3 shuttle loom runs at extremely low speeds and requires hand operation to function, resulting in a lower tension fabric with heavy slub yarns that have a rough texture like the denims of yesteryear’s workwear, with irregularities that will soften quickly with a unique patina. Made in SDA’s refined Relaxed Tapered fit, these jeans have a higher rise and more drastic taper to the leg that accommodates thicker calves while maintaining a narrower hem. This rare and intricately produced low tension shrink-to-fit denim will develop vintage-style fading while forming and draping nicely to the body of its wearer after the first wash or soak. Topped off with specialty Studio D’Artisan touches like a commemorative embossed 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 x G3 is an unsanforized, “Shrink-to-Fit” denim, and we suggest sizing down roughly 0-1 size from your Actual Waist Measurement (Body). 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.
