Benzak - BDD-516 - 18oz Super Slub - RHT

Another made-in-Japan pair has made it down the pipeline. The 18oz fabric is incredibly crunchy and Benzak's heaviest to date. It's also their slubbiest - a truly remarkable fabric. They like to think of this as their 16oz RHT fabric on steroids. The truly amazing part of this fabric is that it has a much lower tension than its counterpart, meaning it has a much easier break-in. This also adds to its uneven, irregular structure that you can truly see on the inside. This fabric is packed with indigo, almost to the level where it looks black, and it's going to look so beautiful when you break it in. From top to bottom, this pair is milled, cut, and sewn in Japan.

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," 162lbs with a 32-33" true waist measurement.
