Benzak x CULTIZM: Special #4

SPECIAL #4: A HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
Together with Kurabo Denim from Japan, Benzak Denim has created a fourth proprietary fabric. This 18.5 oz. deep indigo selvedge denim, dubbed ‘special #4’, is a fabric that definitely leans towards the heavier side in regard to weight. It is actually the heaviest BENZAK fabric available as of this moment in time. So whether you’re a heavyweight champion or a newcomer in the heavy-denim department, the special #4 arguably is one of the better ways to kick off 2021.

The 18.5 oz. deep indigo selvedge is a perfect example of super-heavy-weight, high contrast fading potential and comfort, all packed in one single fabric. The deep dye will keep the fabric dark where it doesn’t fade, resulting in higher contrast at the creases after wear. The construction is tight, giving it a longer break-in time, but will soften up with wear. Kurabo Denim has woven this 100% cotton fabric for us with a special light blue selvedge ID, to set it apart from other fabrics. This is the fourth BENZAK exclusive fabric already; that’s why they are aptly calling it the special #4, for which they have chosen a dark green colored label to match the subtle green cast tone of the warp yarns. The fabric is available in B-01 Slim, B-03 Tapered and BDJ-01 Cowboy Jacket from February 3rd.

SPECIAL #04: Three fittings

Fitting #1

The B-01 Slim follows a slim tapered silhouette all the way down the leg. It’s a versatile cut leaving enough room for extended movement and an all-round snug fit. They have developed the B-01 with a curved waistband which creates a figure-hugging super comfortable top-block. The slim fit is a versatile style for a multitude of occasions. The B-01 Slim’s shape allows for an effortless smart-casual style and is also suitable for a refined laidback look.

Fitting #2

The B-03 Tapered is a relaxed fit with a long rise, dropped crotch and roomy thighs. The taper from the knee down allows for the silhouette to maintain a slightly slimmer bottom hem for a contemporary casual look. The B-03’s modern cut is a versatile everyday fit. It’s constructed with a shaped waistband, the top-block is rounder and guarantees extra comfort from your first wear. The refined fit contributes to your jeans staying in place while avoiding unnecessary sagging. It’s your ideal style if you want a relaxed top block with a sophisticated look. The B-03 Tapered is a very convenient fit for all-day, everyday wearing.

Fitting #3

The BDJ-01 Cowboy Jacket is a modernized cut pulling inspiration from the original type I and type II denim jackets. They have reimagined a classic to develop a contemporary fit with a longer body. The BDJ-01 features a 6 button pleated front placket with the mandatory box stitching, this pays homage to its influential origins. Two iconic BENZAK pockets are prominent features on the front.
