Our Dot Dash jeans are made from 11.5 oz. inky-black Japanese denim, then manufactured in Canada. They've had one water wash to soften the denim, and they’re a slim leg with a slightly looser fit than our Riff Raff jean. They also have 2% stretch so they start comfortable and stay comfortable, no matter how much you beat ‘em up. And if you beat ‘em up too much, rip ‘em or blow out the crotch, send ‘em to us and we’ll fix it: free repairs for a year (within reason).
