As summer comes to a close, we’re introduced to the latest creation from Arcadia, California’s Railcar Fine Goods - the Spikes X014. Interestingly, rather than attempt to drastically iterate on it’s current offerings, Railcar chose for the Spikes X014 to be a more fully-featured jean. In other words, it encompasses some of the best benefits of it’s higher-end denims but at a reasonable price.
Starting from the top, we see a double waistband that’s continuously chain stitched, as well as seat seams and belt loops that are all sturdily triple stitched. The pocketing department is also well tended to with extra lining reinforcement and hidden rivets being present on the back pockets. Indeed, the Spikes X014 are reminiscent of the Spikes X009 but priced closer to the Spikes X001.
The only area that may disappoint some is the weight. For those needing a heavier denim, the Spikes X014 utilizes a Cone Mills red-line selvedge fabric that weighs a more mid-range 13.75 Oz. What are you thoughts though on this denim’s direction and what it has to offer? Let us know in the comments below.
