These Somet 008 Skinny Low Rise belong to Sir William Howe, the Oracle. William has worn these daily for about 5 months and has not washed them. He was soaked to the bone in a Wisconsin summer thunderstorm on his way to Context while wearing these. They have received repair work at the Context Denim Repair shop.

Here we have the amazing KMW Hand Dye 1980 soaked once in hot water and air dried. Context partner Ryan Huber soaked these after minimal wear to show our clients what the Hand Dye fabric looks like post-soak. Because they are sanforized, they shrunk almost zero and experienced a slight color change. Look closely at the quality of color.
