Selvedge Denim from your M&S

Marks & Spencer is a brand quite close to my heart and has been a part of the UK high street for over 132 years. Within that their range of menswear has been a part of their foundations as your own beating heart. We keep an eye on their menswear mainly for their wide selection of suiting, but now we take a look into their casual side.

Marks & Spencer is pleased to announce the launch of a new luxury selvedge denim range, which will be coming through in AW16. For the real denim heads out there, this is the range that you’ve always wanted to see, with pieces made from authentic selvedge denim and woven on traditional looms.

Identifying selvedge denim is mostly noticeable because of its tighter weave and the fact it’s woven on narrow width looms using a single continuous weft yarn. When the jean hem is turned up, the natural edge of the fabrics with contrasting colours can be seen.

Marks & Spencer have chosen the most premium fabrics for their selvedge denim from three key regions in the world:

Cone Denim LLC mill in America

Candiani mill in Italy

Kurabo mill in Japan

  For the man who is into his quality fabrics, these selvedge denim pieces are the perfect investment piece for every man’s wardrobe. To add to the joy, their selvedge denim range is available in a variety of washes, including black, dark indigo and mid blue, and in two fits, slim fit and straight fit.

All pairs of the selvedge denim is given added detailing which includes selvedge on the front coin pocket, mill labels and the country’s flag printed on the inside of the jean and on the packaging labels.

Menswear Designer for Marks & Spencer comments;

“A good pair of jeans is a really important part of a man’s wardrobe. Over the past couple of seasons we’ve been expanding and developing our denim offer, giving customers more choice on fit, wash, style and price. This brand new range of selvedge jeans is a natural extension to our offer, giving our customers denim of the very finest quality and made in some of the world’s finest mills. The fit and finish are impeccable, they’re the perfect investment piece this Autumn.”


All selvedge denim styles will be available in selected stores and online at
