This Neuw Denim relaxed tapered jean is based on the style Lou Reed was wearing while recording Velvet Underground’s first album in New York 1966. Indigo fabric developed based on late 60’s indigo rope dyed denim. BUT, we wanted to make the original more modern, darker and sharper, so we treated the top(warp) yarn with matte black wax. The end result is a dark sharp looking modern fabric that develops character as well as it’s ancestors. Heavily stone washed scraped and distressed.
