G-003 - Tapered Slim G3 Series


Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Studio D’Artisan G3 Series Tapered Slim is produced in the Super Tight Straight fit with a true medium rise, moderate seat and thigh with a strongly tapered leg and a narrow hem. This jean is made with a unique 15 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 jeans are made in SDA’s most popular Super Tight Straight fit with a slightly higher rise to give this low tension fabric some drape in the thigh for those who want a comfortable slim fit. This rare and intricately produced shrink-to-fit denim will develop vintage style fading and form nicely 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, duck canvas pocket bags, embossed copper riveting, a nickel 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 G3 Series we suggest sizing down roughly (2) sizes from your actual waist size. This denim is unsanforized and unwashed and will stretch 1" in the waist with one month of regular use, and shrink 1.5-2" upon first wash, and 2-2.5" in the length. Generally, we recommend sizing up one size for cold soak/rinse before wearing, or sizing normally if not exposing to water until after 30+ wears.

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