Recently, 3sixteen celebrated their 10 year anniversary by releasing a large collection of products that reflect the work they’ve done over the last decade, as well highlights their partnerships with other like-minded people; including brands like Viberg, Converse, and denim retailer, Self Edge. Their most recent release from the Decade Collection is a collaboration jean with Self Edge, the 3sixteen+ 34BSP Brown Weft Straight Tapered jean.
As many of you may know, 3sixteen and Self Edge have a close working relationship and have consistently collaborated together on their 3sixteen+ brand, which combines their obsession with Japanese fabrics and classic American styles. The 34BSP jean is made from a heavy 17 oz. sanforized fabric from Kuroki Mills that utilizes Supima pure indigo dyed warp yarns and brown pigment dyed weft yarns.
We’ve covered a couple brown weft jeans and it’s interesting to see that while the concept is the same, the execution and end results are always very different. The brown warp on the 34BSP is a lighter shade of brown that almost has a golden hue to it that is reminiscent of Strike Gold‘s SG2105 and SG2109 jeans. The combination of the brown and indigo yarns gives the overall jean a deeper color that should fade well over time.
The straight taper cut of the jean was in response to the need by many customers for a jean that has a roomier top block but still has the more modern tapered look. Above the knee the fit is what you would expect from a classic straight jean, while below the knee the jean tapers to a smaller leg opening.
One of the more unique details of the jean is their comic book style “Thanos” style patch that shows Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet and 3sixteen+’s slogan, “Built To Last…Shall Be First“. The jean is a limited run and only available at Self Edge stores and website.
