Benzak - BDD-516 - 16oz Heavy Slub RHT

When we knew we had the option to grab some Made in Japan denim from Benzak, this was our first choice. If we had to choose one weight of denim forever, it would be 16oz. And, you already know we love slub. These have so much texture that you would rightfully expect from Japanese denim. On top of that, they have all the extra details listed below you usually only see from Japan. The double-needle indigo stitch on the top of the back pockets and the hidden single needle along the inseam are two of our favorites. That's because they are details that only reveal themselves as the denim ages and fades. You also can't deny the 100% brass buttons and rivets. And, pocket bags. My goodness, the pocket bags look and feel amazing. Overall, it's one of the best pairs we've laid hands on in some time. They're pretty phenomenal.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 30 in the images. His typical size is a 31, but these tend to fit bigger. On this heavier, higher-waisted denim, we would recommend sticking with your true size. Sizing down one was admittedly too tight for Tommy. The BDD-516 is a slim-fitting silhouette with a high rise, snug thighs and slim tapered legs. It can be considered Benzak's Japanese-made equivalent of the B-01 SLIM. It’s the ideal fit for anyone looking for a higher version of the BDD-006, or aiming for a slimmer fitting option compared to the BDD-711.  Tommy is 5'10," 170lbs with a 32.5-33" true waist measurement.
