Gila is cut from a 9 ounce indigo denim, woven in Osaka on old looms that give it a vintage characteristic. Gila comes in two versions: “Raw” (unwashed) and “Rinsed” (light rinse wash). We recommend the Raw finish and that you wear it for 8-12 months before your first wash. This allows for your denim shirt to develop unique folds, creases and abrasions in the right places. If you want a touch of softness with a “broken-in” feel then go with our single-rinse version.
