J. Crew's $300 Japanese Denim Jeans

J. Crew has partnered with Japanese selvedge denim label Warehouse on a $300 jeans style—called Lot 484—set to launch online next month. Selvedge (or selvage) denim is a kind of denim that doesn't unravel—it has a natural edge and is produced on old-school shuttle looms (not projectile looms, that are cheaper to run). The Lot 484 jeans are made of Memphis-grown cotton that's been dyed and woven, but left otherwise untreated, in Japan. [WWD]
