What is a leg twist?

The leg twist often occurs with raw denims as well as very heavy and compact twill weaves. The woven fabric (e.g. twill) tends to turn in the diagonal weaving direction when washed.

This occurs sometimes more, sometimes less. It depends on the fabric weight, the tension caused by weaving and how the fabric is washed. This effect often occurs with our heavy fabrics woven in Japan and Germany. Therefore, we recommend dry cleaning. The more the pants/ items are washed in the washing machine, the more this effect occurs and the seam turns to the front.

We think, this effect belongs to vintage trousers that are authentically produced and does not represent a quality defect.
