Recon just released "General Purpose" new line of high-grade denim. The new Recon GP jeans are made of high quality, small batch, ring-ring denim for better aging. The yarn is specially ring spun, utilizing 2000 years old Japanese ring-ring weaving techniques and machinery.
Available now at the New York store, soon at Recon SF and online.

Each color is multiple dyed from pure indigo, the most expensive way to dye denim, for the richres hued product.
Raw & Heayweight
Whereas most jeans are only 9 or 10 oz., Recon's "Winter Weight" denim weights in at 13 oz. Also, we leave our jeans unwashed for an unaffected look. As a result, GP jeans retain the denim's innate strength and warmth.
"Lithe" Denim is our new heightweight denim with 1% stretch for just the right amount of added comfort. Instead of woven through, the yarn is "core spun", the premiere way of making stretch yarn. Because of the frabic's weight and the low percent of elasticity these aren't the effeminate stretch jeans that you usually see on the market.
"Recon" Stamped rivets, Recon Money Writband and Pocket Lining, GP Joker Tag, Barb Stamped Shank Button and Barb embroided back pocket.
