The inside of the Horween Natural Essex leather gives the interior of the bag a natural “felt-like” feeling and thus we recommend getting your piece of The Jäger luggage without interior lining. The heavy duty leather ensures the bag is durable but the 100% leather also adds weight so we recommend the bag without lining for optimum weight. The bag comes with an inside pocket for small items and accessories. For those that don’t mind the weight, a canvas lining is optional.

The silhouette for the Lot 750x jeans is Slim Straight cut that fits slightly slimmer than the original Vintage Straight cut of the Lot 3010. It makes a great pair of jeans for any style. The jeans will be made to order and will be hemmed according to your preference. The 14.7oz denim jeans will stretch after wear but are intended to fit true to size. The denim is sanforized but raw/non-wash, which means the denim is pre-treated to avoid major shrinking, but still in rigid state and will shrink across the jeans to the dedicated size. For more information on the sizing, feel free to contact taavi.kuisma@nordicdenimhouse.com, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Lot 750x is limited to 50 pieces worldwide and portion of the profits from the sales of Northern Denim Co. jeans go to selected charitable cause.

Although the denim is sanforized it is advisable to take into account the shrink-to-fit nature of the denim. The jeans will shrink approximately 1″ to 1.5″ on the waist and inseam. The denim will also adjust across the different parts. The natural indigo denim shrinks quite a bit depending on the temperature and though the denim eventually stretches we recommend going with your true size for an optimum fit.
