The Chinese New Year – Metal Rat is a 12.5oz Japanese selvedge denim celebrating the Year of the Rat in the Chinese Zodiac. Every year, one of the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals is associated with one of the five elements: wood, fire, earth, water, and metal (gold). Because there are 12 Zodiac animals and 5 elements, each pairing is unique for 60 years. January 25th, 2020 is the beginning of a Metal Rat year, so the selvedge ID is red and metallic gold. The denim itself is made from rope-dyed slub yarns that create a textured grain in the finished fabric. With time, the indigo will chip away to produce high-contrast vertical fades. Cut, sewn, built in Canada with contrast stitching, red pocket bags, a red and gold exposed selvedge coin pocket, a Natural Veg Tan Gold Foil Emboss leather patch, and silver metallic buttons and rivets. The Weird Guy is a standard tapered fit with a medium rise, a comfortable top block, and a taper from knee to hem.
