Warehouse & Co came about in 1995, as the final members of the Osaka 5, the collective responsible for driving the vintage and selvedge denim boom of the 1990s. Founded by former Evisu and Full Count employees, the twin brothers Kenji and Kenichi Shiotani, Warehouse is known for their meticulous detail and considered construction.

A much rarer piece of old Americana, these are based on WWII era cowboy jeans, originally produced by Lee. A unique blend of utilitarian need and war-shortage-based limitations, these are absolutely packed with interesting historical details (if you know what to look for). For those that aren't denim historians however, these are still a damn handsome and phenomenally made pair of jeans.

The fit is excellent, with a comfortable top block and a nice high rise - the legs are wide and straight, plenty roomy for fitting over boots, but not overstated or dramatic. Everything we love about the more often reproduced WWII fits (the straight leg and high rise) amplified just slightly and given a touch of western flair.

The denim is special, custom developed by Warehouse to most accurately replicate vintage samples from their archives. Clocking in at 13.5oz (shrinking to 13.7oz after the first wash) this is a 100% cotton, 7x7 yarn count right hand twill, with a gray weft and white/gray selvedge ID. As an unsanforized fabric, the denim will change noticeably after the first wash, shrinking upward and inward and taking on a more vibrant color. 

It features some interesting and highly accurate WWII details, like the "generic" star and wreath donut buttons, HBT pocket bags, double needle stitching (in place of triple needle, due to thread rationing), and rounded pockets that were easier to sew. The usual cowboy pant suspender buttons and buckle back have been excluded, leaving just belt loops and a single rivet at the crotch (iconic, but be conscious when sitting around campfires).

Each pair is finished with a unique hair-on-hide leather patch, so no two pairs will be alike. As a special bonus, they come with a cotton "Victory Bag", a fun and historically relevant inclusion, as bags like this were distributed at various points during the war.

Fits true to size when raw, but will shrink 1-2" in the waist after the first wash and then stretch back out with wear. We suggest most folks go up 1 size from their usual waist for the best fit. Cold wash for less shrinkage, hot wash for more - hang dry either way.
