Love 1960’s jeans

The 1960’s jeans deserve a renaissance. As much as I’m a sucker for cinchbacks and 50’s cuts there’s something special with the 1960’s jeans that I adore. Time to throw a punch for the paper patch-era. Paper patch evolution is just as sweet as that of a leather patch in my opinion. Down below you’ll see some other features, or lack there of, from typical 60’s jeans.

Part of what I like about the 60’s jeans is, though it might sound odd, that some of the neat features of earlier eras are no longer there. The V-stitch is gone, coinpocket selvedge is gone, hidden rivets are gone, backside of the rivets are changed to aluminum. One added feature is that the waistband gets a double chainstitch instead of just one of the seams. Below you see some examples of the features from my Denime 66 and TCB 60’s.

No coinpocket selvedge
No V-stitch or hidden rivets
Aluminium backsides of the rivets
Double chainstitched waistband
