1108R is a straight leg fit made by Fullcount in Okayama. The fabric used in this limited edition jeans is produced to meet Fullcount's requests when it comes to quality, durability and aging of the fabric and it took Fullcount three years to get it just right. These jeans are the very first product that has been made in this special fabric.
The cotton used is a blend of American and Australian cotton produced by farms that are well known for growing quality cotton. It is not bleached to appear whiter, as is common in the denim industry, because bleaching is a very tough treatment will lower the strength of the cotton fiber. Looking at the weft you can see the off-white color, that same color as the cotton had when it was picked from the bush! The warp is dyed with indigo and by untwisting the yarn one can study the yarns texture and see that the core of the yarn is undyed, leaving the natural color of the cotton in the center. This is a tell-tale sign that one can expect these jeans to age to perfection with time and wear.
The slubbyness of this fabric is achieved by two factors. One is that the yarn used is uneven which adds to the lively texture, and the other is that it is woven with a low tension warp, a process that adds a natural variation in how the texture will appear on the finished product. Further, the looms used are old vintage ones which takes years to learn to operate and master!
The jeans are unwashed and will shrink. The best way to wear a pair of Fullcount jeans is to size up so they feel slightly large then rinse them to have them shrink to a size smaller. After that you can stretch them out by wearing them to get your personal fit.
This unwashed fabric will shrink proximately 2,5 cm in the waist and 10 cm in the length when the jeans washed.
