The UES 400S Slim Straight Selvedge Denim is more of a classic cut in their standard 14.9 oz 100% Zimbabwe cotton fabric. Made on old style shuttle looms with old dyeing methods, the result is a unique touch to each piece that makes them a little uneven in fabric, nep, and dye. The fabric itself has a crunchy feel to it at first, but quickly breaks in and softens up. At face value, this is a no thrills vintage pair of denim, yet packs a bunch of details beneath the surface such as raised belt loops, raised back pocket and front pocket hems, orange and yellow threads for different seams, and a nice larger(er) canvas pocket bag to fit your large phone.
The Slim Straight cut has a low-to-medium rise, that is slim through the thighs and straight leg on downwards. While they make these unsanforized as a shrink-to-fit pair, we brought in the one-washed version from their factory to reduce the sizing uncertainties that can come with purchasing unsanforized online.

Note: The Slim Straight runs smaller in the waist and thighs than the 400T, so you may need to size up from your regular denim size for the 400S. These are one-washed so you should expect minimal shrinkage going forward. Denim will stretch about 0.5"-1" in the waist after breaking in. For those who like slim fitting jeans, upon first wear the top button should be snug/tight. Cold wash and hang-dry.
Model: 6'0'' and 175 lbs, with moderate "lifter" thighs, wearing size 33 (one size up from his common denim size) for a slim fit through the thighs and straight leg.
