What makes quality denim? Is it the strength of the fibers, the weave, the shade of the wash, or something else? Selvedge Japanese denim, known for its premium construction and the skilled, artisanal craft required to make it, is some of the most sought after denim, but sometimes, the best isn’t the most attractive, comfortable or, as in this case, affordable. With that said,...
