Closed is doing its part to return to a pre-pandemic cadence of new “drops” with an ultra-exclusive line of men’s selvedge jeans.
On March 19, the German brand will bow “Limited to Thirty,” a capsule collection designed for denim lovers. The collection consists of six pairs of men’s jeans made of high-quality selvedge denim woven by renowned Japanese mills Kuroki and Kurabo.
Only 30 individual pairs of each style will be available, and each pair is numbered by hand 1/30 to 30/30.
Closed, which has ramped up its sustainable efforts in the past few years with jeans made with Candiani Denim’s degradable stretch technology and circular fibers like Tencel x Refibra, didn’t have to look far for the fabrics.
The 14 oz. 100 percent cotton fabrics are deadstock material—remainders that Closed’s Italian denim manufacturing company, Incom, had in stock from previous productions. Due to the small quantity, there was no longer any use for it. In keeping with Closed’s focus on having a tight supply chain, the fabrics were washed using the latest resource-saving techniques at Greenlab in Italy and sewn by Incom.
The collection features three men’s fits: the relaxed X-Lent, the regular Cooper Tapered and the slim Unity. Each fit is offered in raw denim and an authentic vintage wash.
Each pair in this edition has selvedge detailing on the inside hem and back belt loop. The jeans are sewn with two-tone thread and feature a special pocket print and leather logo patch.
The collection will be available exclusively at Closed.com. Jeans will retail for $365. With each pair of “Limited to Thirty” jeans, Closed will provide a gift with purchase: the Denim Launder Spray by DFNS, a biodegradable, water-based spray to refresh denim without washing.
