Fuel Greasy Selvedge Denim Jeans – €410
Fuel’s Greasy Selvedge Denim Jeans (€410) are a unique product. Why? The secret comes from the materials they use. They are crafted from Selvedge Denim which has been mixed with Aramid fibers to achieve a light, comfortable fit and AA safety rating. Before the 1950s, most fabrics — including denim were made on shuttle looms. Shuttle looms produce tightly woven strips (typically one yard wide) of heavy fabric. The edges on these strips of fabric come finished with tightly woven bands running down each side that prevent fraying or curling. As the edges come out of the loom finished, denim produced on shuttle looms are referred to as having a “self-edge,” hence the name “selvedge” denim.
These fantastic looking jeans are made with both contemporary and vintage sewing machines combining the spirit of old times and the functionality and safety of today’s riding requirements. Some of these manufacturing machines are 100 years old and make highly strong stitching giving these goods from Fuel Motorcycles a touch of longevity and robustness. The hip and knee protectors are made from Polyanswer, a premium Portuguese manufacturer of CE protectors making this tough and stylish in equal measure. €410)
