Standard Deadstock Dungaree
Found in an abandoned factory in Petersburg VA, this denim was made in the late '60s / early '70s. The factory where it was found was once the home of ATU (American Textiles Unlimited), who manufactured apparel both under their own label and for other brands as well.
The denim is a coarse-grain, 13oz wide-width with a retro, true indigo shade. These jeans are finished with a one-wash to soften the fabric and to bring out its texture.
