This Companion Denim Jan 022CO Burkina Faso raw selvedge jean comes in our Taper Jan fit. This fit is suitable for all body types, and is specially indicated for tall guys and full thighs. The fit has a mid-high rise, comfortable top block, and slightly tapered leg. It can be worn high on waist or lower for a more relaxed fit.
The denim has been produced according to Japanese ropye dye techniques, in order to achieve the superficial dye and white core in the yarns, which will turn into beautifully faded jeans.
The denim will be revealing all its beauty day by day in a never ending evolution. The jeans will only look better and better through time. Use your jeans as much as possible before the first wash, ideally 6-12 months, in order to get a highly contrasted look. Or, wash them regularly for softer and less contrasted fades.
It is highly recommended to follow our measuring tips to make the right selection of size.

The principle is clear and easy “wear as much as possible, wash as little as possible”. The more you wear your jeans, the better they will look.
Following this principle and washing your jeans after 6-8 months of wear should already show some nice fadings and strong character.
Wash the jeans inside out with mild soap and in cold temperature (maximum 40ºC). No bleach, chlorine, or other chemicals.
Do not use tumble dryer, hang dry instead.
