The RHETT' wash in Cone's xx5 is pretty special, especially when offered in our best-selling men's fit, the M3 Slim Straight. The xx5 is some of the last selvedge yardage ever to run off the looms at Coneäó»s White Oak plant in Greensboro, North Carolina, and weighs in at the perfect year-round weight of 12.5 oz. This style incorporates Red Orange + Egyptian Topaz colored D-Core threads from A&E, and is washed using a combination of laser, oven baking, hand sanding, and tint to produce a medium-soft hand, beautiful whisker pattern, with minimal abrasion and zero damage effect around pockets and hems.
After wash, the RHETT takes on a subtle green caste, with vertical indigo dyed warp + ecru weft, and single needle sewing throughout. The construction includes clean-finished French seams and a chunky chain stitch bottom waistband construction and hem - just like the old days.
You'll find Cone's classic white + red selvedge ID prominently featured on the side seams, center back belt loop, right back pocket, coin pocket and single faced inside button fly. For everyone keeping track at home, we sewed this with skinny belt loops and 3x1's back pocket #21.
