In this episode of The Denim & Boots Podcast, Thomas talk to Pete and Tony from Tellason about choosing ‘made in Japan’ denim after White Oak closed.
The White Oak denim plant is the grand ol’ lady of our industry. It’s the company that supplied Levi’s with American-made selvedge denim for the 501 for 70 years. Soon, it will be history!
When we look for new jeans, there’s much more than the colour and fit to take into consideration. In this article, I’ll be looking specifically at the labels that appear on premium denim, and the semiotic and semantic power that such labels carry.
In this fourth episode in the series about how denim is made, you’ll learn how denim is woven and why denimheads prefer shuttle-loomed denim.
