About the Trabuco Classic Straight 12 Ounce Vintage Blue Denim

Introducing Freenote Cloth’s newest signature denim in broken twill: 12 Ounce Vintage Blue. Around 9 years ago, we stumbled upon a vintage roll of selvedge with a unique pale blue color. Ever since, recreating “G.I. Blue” – the nickname we gave the original roll of fabric – has been a passion project for us. At first, we tried to find the original manufacturer, so we approached the now defunct Cone Mills White Oak. Although they couldn’t find any records of making this particular denim, they did offer some insight to its origin. Like many products in wartime, dye is often a scarce commodity. We’ve never been able to pinpoint when the denim fabric was manufactured, but it is likely that the distinct pale blue color was an invention of necessity in the midst of wartime rationing. Matching this shade of blue was no easy task, but after 8 years of trial and error, we finally have a faithful reproduction of “G.I. Blue.”

Perfect transition into selvedge denim

I'd highly recommend this 12oz denim to people who're just transitioning into selvedge jeans like myself. The trabuco fits comfortably in the seat & thigh (without feeling baggy at all), and features a slight taper toward hem opening that's not too narrow for my thick calf.

Drew is very helpful with his expert advice, and went the extra mile to measure all size 32 jeans to pick one whose waist is "ever so slightly below 34" which is my ideal fit. I can tell FREENOTE takes customer satisfaction seriously!
