Cone Mill - Raw Selvedge Break In

by Lucas Darway August 27, 2019 27 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.
