C17 Jeans: Denim Release SS20
Since 1972, C17 Jeans have been producing quality denim catering to a distinguished clientele seeking out quality. However, the production of denim by the brand halted around the late 90s.
Now under new management and a fresh perspective, the brand is once again producing jeans which gained them a cult following back in the 80s. After months of careful planning and designing C17 Jeans have fired up their loom weaving machines once again for a new denim release.
Here at Stuarts London, we have got an exclusive insight behind the release. With this guide, we will give you a full rundown of the different denim fits and styles on offer from the brand this season.
C17 Jeans Fit
C17 Jeans draw upon their heritage for their fits but with the modern user in mind. Aiming to get as close to the ideal as possible, they strive to keep things classic but with modern influences.
Finding a good pair of quality jeans can be a headache. Seemingly endless different styles, fits, and washes sometimes can make things difficult. C17 Jeans aim to keep things simple with 3 fits that are classic and sharp that will satisfy the most discerning denim fan.
The slimmest fit on offer this season is not skinny by any means but keeps things trims through the thigh and leg for a modern look but with enough width to keep that classic heritage look.
This cut comes with a classic high-rise – another feature that draws upon the brand’s heritage and keeps the fit of the jeans most flattering.
A tried and true classic with modern detailing. The jeans are wider in the thigh and gently taper down to give a flattering look. A great versatile fit for those who want a wider leg jean but still want to keep some shape through the leg.
This fit also features a low rise and fit on the hips – this gives a more modern feel and fit.
Loose Archival Fit
Featuring a high-rise and overall looser fit with a slight taper on the leg – these jeans are as close to the jeans C17 Jeans were producing in the 80s.
All C17 Jeans are indigo dyed – meaning that they are designed to become more beautiful and unique with time. The jeans come in a variety of different washes so you can get the perfect pair to suit you. These include raw rigid (unwashed), 1-year wash, 2-year vintage wash, and a marbled vintage wash.
For those looking to have a truly unique pair of jeans that will garner a distinctly personalised patina with time as you wear them then the Raw rigid denim is for you.
The general consensus is that you should wear them for 6 months before washing to get the best look for your denim.
1 Year Wash
As jeans go through the washing process they get a different look. Some prefer their jeans ready washed for a more vintage look and lighter colour. The 1-year wash is a nice option for those looking for a more vintage look but still with plenty of room to leave their own personalised wear on the jeans.
2 Year Wash
The 2-year rinse wash gives you that really nice vintage denim look straight away. Coming with lighter tones of blue and a rich patina these jeans can really give a nice vintage look to your outfit.
Marbled Vintage Wash
This wash, sometimes known as ‘stonewashed’ give a distinct look the jeans offering a rich variation of tones and an overall lighter colouring. A great look for the warmer months of the year.
