Marc Jacobs is undeniably one of the world's top "true" fashion designers! The man now offers a collection of selvedge denim jeans which are destined to compete with the Japanese giants. Produced solely in Japan, selvedge denim is made on old style shuttle looms which haven't been made for 40 years. These antique looms make the cross stitch go back and forth during the weaving process unlike modern looms which shoot each cross thread across individually causing fraying. For the cleanest edge on a jean, selvedge is the way to go. This looks like being a magic combination.
