      About the Rios 14.50 Ounce Kaihara Denim

      We began development of the Kaihara Mills denim roughly two years ago with the aim to develop a classic custom denim that we could showcase in all of our fits. We started with ultra dark indigo yarns with light slub and tighter tension weave. The fill yarn is less pronounced compared to our current denim offering. We were looking for quicker and more pronounced fades.

      Really Great but…

      First off the guys at Freenote are awesome. Super helpful. Everything is made incredibly well. When I received these Rios Kaihara jeans they were super stiff and very uncomfortable to wear. I was told not to wash them but they were unwearable. I washed them inside out twice then in the dryer with tennis balls. Better now, at least I can wear them. Didn’t realize how stiff raw denim is. Probably Last forever.

      Amazing jeans

      Excellent craftsmanship. Super details. Indigo is dark and fast. Looking forward to trying to bust these jeans. I have to say I’m most grateful for the accuracy between the size chart and the actual item. This is a big deal for me - and certainly will give me confidence in ordering new jeans in the future. Thanks!!

      Favorite yet

      This is my fifth pair of Freenotes, and my third pair of Rios denim, which is probably a pretty good testimony on its own.

      The Rios cut is perfect (if you’re like me and want something slim but not skinny), and this Kaihara denim is my favorite yet (the hand is substantial while comfortable, and the overall color is just right).

      Like all the Freenote denim, the finishing touches are top notch, and they’ve managed to find the perfect size and shape for the back pockets — which is a surprisingly big deal.

      Solid fit, great look and feel

      I've always wanted to own a genuine pair of selvedge Kaihara denim jeans and have been watching Freenote Cloth for some time now. I've opted to go with a straight slim fit, not too tight nor overly tapered in the leg. I have to say that after 1 day of breaking these in I'm really pleased with the fit. It's solid craftwork and perfectly engineered denim designed to mould and shape to your body's fit. I can really appreciate the attention to detail. Love the hardware, the tan leather patch. A smart pair of denim built to last!
