  • Why We Love It: This fabric is truly a labor of love. 8 years ago, Freenote found a vintage roll of selvedge with a unique pale blue colour from an unknown mill. Nicknamed “G.I. Blue”, recreating this incredible fabric has been a passion project of theirs. While they were never able to find the original manufacturer of the denim, they learned that the pale blue colour was most likely an invention of necessity in the midst of wartime rationing. After 8 years of trial and error, they were finally able to create a faithful reproduction of “G.I. Blue” with the help of Yoshiwa Mills in Japan. Weighing in at 12oz, this is the perfect summer time raw denim.

    Details: Two different Selvedge ID’s - brown on one side, blue on the other (a nod to the original fabric), double needle outseam stitch construction, yoke over detail, two piece waistband, ⅛” double needle accents, tucked belt loops, flat felled seams, Japanese herringbone pocket bags, custom rivets and button tacks, US YKK zipper #5 from georgia.

    Fit: Elongated front rise, regular thigh, regular knee

    Colour: Pale blue Indigo

    Composition: 12oz, 100% cotton
