If extra-heavyweight denim is what you’re after, it doesn’t get much better than the rough and rigid Ironchief. These jeans use 23-ounce unsanforized loomstate denim milled exclusively for Sage. Because the denim is rope-dyed, it’ll fade faster than it would with other methods of dyeing, and the ring slub texture gives it loads of character. Each pair features a 5-millimeter cowhide patch, copper rivets embossed with the Sage name, and a forest green selvage line—a symbol of the team’s passion for the great outdoors. Another unique design element: a hook for keys on the front right belt loop.
Note: At checkout, choose the slim straight fit (in size 28, 29, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, or 40) or the slim fit (in size 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, or 40).3
Indonesia has a rich history with indigo dyes (it's an important center for batik, after all), so it’s no surprise that the country is making waves in the denim world. Sage is among the major players. The company was founded in 2012 with the idea that travel and outdoor exploration are the two best routes to a life well-lived. And the jeans are designed with this in mind—as hard-wearing garments to accompany you on the bumpy, unpredictable road ahead.
Unsanforized denim is made from cloth that hasn’t been through sanforization: the process of stretching, fixing, and shrinking fabric at the mill. As a result, unsanforized denim will shrink considerably after the first wash. The size charts on this page show measurements pre-soak, since post-soak results will vary depending on the water temperature used and the duration of soaking. Generally speaking, you can expect an average of 1–1.5 inches of shrinkage in the waist and inseam, and 0.5 inch of shrinkage in other areas, like the knee and thigh. The higher the water temperature, the more shrinkage you’ll see. After the initial soak, the fabric may feel quite snug at the waist and hips. After a few days, it’ll stretch back to the labeled size and fit comfortably.
