The Official Roy Denim Thread

ooo fuck=( i had my heart set on the beatles when you get a restock next week maybe I'll buy those if the price is right. Never owned something like these.

Edit: How is the sizing on these a size 30 is measured 32 is that just so it can fit a higher range of waists? Im a size 30.5 true so I would just get a tagged 30? I'm not too skinny for these?

Roy Black 'n Blue Indigo Dyed Canvas Jeans

Roy Slaper has finished up a new set of 5-Pocket pants made of an indigo dyed 12oz cotton canvas.

Roy wanted a slim-straight cut super dark pant that wore in with extreme fading properties. He chose this Cone (White Oak) indigo dyed canvas due to how it ages over time, it almost ages like an indigo dyed denim which was produced with massive loom-chatter, yet at the same time this fabric looks quite even when new. One of the most labor intensive garment Roy has produced yet, these indigo dyed canvas pants are a final level of flavorful. From the seashell fly stitch to the psychotically assembled pocket bags these are best viewed completely inside out.
From the outside they're built like a diesel truck and from the inside they're more like a peacock.

Roy suggests soaking these in room temperature water for 10 to 20 minutes and allowing them to air dry before wearing just to get the starch out (for comfort). Not doing this will not hurt the jean necessarily and will yield more contrast in the wear due to the way the fabric will react to wear while still starched.

Considering the time it takes to produce these and the fact that every jean is produced by one man from start to finish restocks or new models do not come often, but when they do, they're worth the wait.

Roy's Jeans - The Cone Mills Project - Straight & Narrow Fits

Roy Slaper is back with his first denim jean release in many months. This long overdue set of jeans is made up of a custom fabric from Cone Mills made exactly to Roy's specs. This is the first time in over three decades that Cone has produced an unsanforized fabric for anybody, and therefore we feel that this is history in the making.

The denim is a loomstate unsanforized indigo denim that clocks in at 13oz per square yard in it's raw state. The fabric has a slight gray-cast to it and feels far heavier than it's stated weight due to it's weave and loomstate nature.
The jeans themselves come in two fits, both a slim and a straight leg. Both silhouettes are slightly modified from past iterations of Roy's straight and slim fits.

Never content with just "doing another run", Roy has improved and tweaked everything surrounding the production of these jeans. The stitching of the body is even finer and more accurate and we love the fully lined back pockets and coin pocket; i don't believe we've ever seen a lined coin pocket on a pair of jeans before. The rear pocket hems now have a hand-done welt in them, mimicking the vintage style belt-loops found on many of the best Japanese brands. And last but not least the back pockets have been slightly reduced in size from past versions.

Jeans from Roy don't come often and we can't keep them in stock as long as we'd like, so if you've been waiting for a pair, now is the time.

The Roy Nihon Menpu Chambray Shirt
Roy's first production shirt is a special one. The shirt starts with a blank canvas of Nihon Menpu's 6oz selvedge chambray combined with dead-stock fish-eye buttons from almost 100 years ago, those are the simple parts. The shirt is cut and sewn by Roy Slaper using vintage Singer and Union Special machines with a few hidden details that we'd rather not spill here. Best to see this shirt in person and discover all its beauty slowly.

One of the details we personally love is the busted selvedge seam up the back of the shirt, over time you'll have jean-like train tracks running up your back. Also, Roy has this wild machine that's able to do a stitch that melts our minds, it's meant to be an invisible hemming machine but to us it looks like a crazy fabric perforator. He's used this machine to hem the front placket of the shirt which also hides the button backs from your body when the shirt is worn.
