RAILCAR FINE GOODS XO20
Posted: May 03 2015
New from Railcar Fine Goods are the Spikes X020 a “Straight slim” made using a limited supply of Japan’s Kaihara mill 14 oz. Pink ID selvage denim. This fabric is very unique compared to Railcar’s standard fabrics. As a 100% cotton ring spun denim it features an intense indigo, highly visible vertical slubs, and pink selvage line. Compared to other 14 oz. fabrics the kaihara denim is incredibly soft to the hand yet very dense.
This fabric combined with the detailed construction features that Railcar utilizes in their jeans really show off the “Railcar Difference”. The spikes are fully constructed with custom rivets at key stress points, hidden rivets at the back pockets, and triple stitching along the seat seams and belt loops. The rear pockets are reinforced with cotton fabric lining for added durability, a natural veg tan leather patch that will develop a unique patina through time. The button fly features custom Railcar buttons and a selvage line down the button seam. This is sure to be a jean that will endure heavy wear. Due to the rarity of this fabric, this will be our only run in store, so check it out as soon as you can.
