At long last, Freenote has a proprietary denim that's here to stay. Developed by Freenote and produced by Kaihara Mills in Japan, this is a 100% cotton, indigo-dyed 14.5oz Japanese selvedge denim. Woven at high tension, the outer warp threads feature a dark indigo dye, while the mostly obscured inner weft threads are white - giving the jeans an especially dark appearance initially, but leading to more dramatic fading as the white threads start to become visible beneath the indigo.

The Wilkes are Freenote's more modern take to a classic cowboy cut jean. With a high rise, comfortable thigh, and very slight taper to a leg opening big enough to fit a pair of boots under, they're an excellent cowboy twist on a classic tapered fit. The double flat felled seams on each leg add strength and longevity to the pants, while still maintaining the selvedge detail on the outseam.

The finishings are of an equal calibre, with custom copper rivets, a YKK fly zip, full grain leather Freenote flasher, and custom woven labels.

Fits true to size. Minimal shrinkage expected with a cold wash and hang dry.
