Cone Mill - Raw Selvedge Break In

by Lucas Darway August 27, 2019 8 Comments

Wonder why raw selvedge (including Arcane's 1901 Denim) is so rigid, and what is all the fuss about this "break in" process?

We spent a lot of time working on our 1901's, meaning we did our part and wore them every day. Every. Day. Any idea what the Florida sun and a grueling commute does to a pair of unsanforized, raw selvedge? 

They get ridiculously soft and comfortable - that's what. See below to preview the aging process of a good pair of Cone Mills selvedge.
