SD-909 High Rise Tapered G3 Series


Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Studio D’Artisan SD-909 High Rise Tapered G3 Series is produced in the new High Rise Tapered (09) fit with a true high rise, featuring a roomy seat and thigh and an accommodative knee strongly tapered into 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 soften quickly with a unique patina. Made in SDA’s newest High Rise Tapered fit, these jeans have a proper high rise that sits on the natural waist with a graceful taper to the leg that accommodates thicker thighs and 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 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 1-2 sizes from your Actual Waist Measurement. 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.
