As some of you may already know (get well soon Denim Debate!), I’m a big, big fan of Left Field jeans. So, when founder Christian McCann offered to send over a pair of the label’s new Sunburst Selvedge jeans, I was more than happy to accept. Made with a lightweight, 12.5 oz denim from Japan’s Kaihara Mills, the jeans are a great option for spring / summer. Details are the same as the White Oaks, and they include US-made rivets and buttons, US-made 100% cotton bandanna pocket bags, signature U-stitch coin pocket with hidden selvedge, double chainstitched waistband, Union Special chainstitched hem, and cotton wrapped polyester thread throughout (washes like cotton, but has the strength of poly). As great as all that is, however, the real draw here, of course, is that amazing selvedge edge, and the incredible denim that’s attached to it (and believe me, it really is incredible). More looks after the jump.
As for the fit…
My plan is to hold out on making the seasonal switch over to shorts / khakis for as long as I can, and then do another post to show how the jeans have broken in. Thankfully, because the denim is so light, I should be able to make it for a pretty decent stretch before hanging ‘em up for the summer. If you’re looking for a new pair of warm-weather jeans, but, like me, you just can’t bring yourself to buy pre-distressed (no matter how much of a trend it might be right now), I highly recommend giving these a shot.
