raw essentials

    Made from the finest Red Listing selvedge denim,
    featuring fabrics from Kaihara mill in Fukuyama, Japan.

    THE BEST OF DENIM

    An exclusive first look at the Spring/Summer ’17 season, this capsule is constructed entirely from Red Listing selvedge denim, sought after because of the personal way it ages with long-term wear.

    MADE IN JAPAN

    This season’s jeans and jacket were created as a collaboration between G-Star RAW and Kaihara Denim, the textile mill synonymous with the highest quality denim in Japan, originally founded in 1893 to manufacture indigo dyes for kimonos. While today Kaihara has shifted entirely to denim production, its commitment to heritage and innovation continues unabated.

    THE FUTURE CLASSICS

    The RAW Essentials range reinterprets iconic silhouettes, sourced from the G-Star’s archive, with modern shapes and proportions. Thanks to a time-honored design that faithfully captures the spirit and tradition of American workwear, each piece is sure to prevail for years to come.

    THE ART OF THE TURN-UP

    How can you tell it’s true selvedge? Turn up the cuffs to see the signature stitching on the outside seam. The red yarn indicates this jean is made with Red Listing fabric – G-Star’s most premium-quality denim. Keep things classic with a thick, single cuff or fold the fabric twice for a modern, thinner turn-up.
