Selvedge
This textile technique is synonymous with great prestige and can be easily identified by the colored border that is sometimes found along the outer-leg seam. The edge of the denim has a clean and colored finish. It is the product of weaving on antique looms that are only about 75 cm wide, unlike modern industrial looms which have a width of over a metre and a half. Due to fabrics with a selvedge being narrower than industrial fabrics, it takes twice the amount of fabric without a selvedge to make a pair of jeans, thereby adding great value and exclusivity to the finished garment, and therefore making it cost more than double. Initially the selvedge was white with a red line. Subsequently assorted selvedge arose in the most extravagant colors.
Washing
Inside the laundry, thanks to the support of our archives which contain decades of history of denim and cotton, a simple intuition turns into a prototype and finds out a new project. Shades, millings and mendings are the result of the extreme accuracy of hard-working and creative hands of our expert craftsmen who are specialized in the vintage treatments. Only in this way it is possible to achieve an high quality and a unique product like a handmade and custom tailored one.
Vintage wash
Denim is treated in various ways in order to reproduce the authentic touch of working jeans that are also fashionable, and among these we have vintage wash, to bring those jeans back to the previous traditional use of the denim. There are three particular shades: light, medium and dark, through a mixture between past, present and future trends.
Labelling
Real denim can be recognized by the details and inevitable elements, among which: pockets, rivets, button fly/zip fly, rear waistband label, labels, seat lining, chain stitched hem.

Labelling

Five
Pockets

For jeans purists the only jeans that can be considered real are the five pocket ones, all others are denim pants. Therefore they are featured by two front pockets, two back pockets and the famous fifth "money pocket" placed within the right hand front pocket.

Rivets

Whether they are copper, chromed or bronze, rivets are another detail that tells us something about signature jeans. They are more than a purely ornamental detail, the rivets found in the early jeans had a precise purpose: they were put there to reinforce the pockets of the gold diggers, full of nuggets, so that they wouldn’t tear under the effort.

Rear waistband label

This is the label sewed on the rear waistband and is generally made of leather as for the first jeans ever made and for this reason commonly defined by this element.

Button fly/zip fly

These are the two main fastening methods used in creating denim pants. In any case, the most historical is the button fly.

Seat lining

The seat lining is the reinforced lining inserted in the back pockets and typical of the early jeans that were used as work clothes and therefore needed more support to hold tools.

Labels

Labels are inserted inside in order to supply more details on how the jeans were made and where, which in our case, is 100% made in Italy or better still in the Jeans Valley of the Marche region.

Chain stitched
hem

Chain stitched hem is the typical stitch used for authentic jeans, because it holds a certain elasticity.

Outside label

The label inserted on the outside in order to be able to immediately see the size of the jeans, which is then also normally indicated inside of the jeans.

DENIM SIGNATURE

The rivets are the distinctive features of the original jeans. TWO WOMEN TWO MEN confirms this by using them as the real trademark. Whether they are in copper, chrome or bronze, they distinguish all of our garments, look for them in the back right pocket!
