British made heavyweight jeans that are blacker than a pirate's heart

GVNR is a straight leg fit from the knee down. As with all our jeans you’ll find plenty of comfort, because we like space to dance in the ballroom. It’s a slim straight – not too baggy and not at all skinny – just how we like it, and so will you.

They’re made from a heavyweight and hardwearing 16oz raw selvedge denim. The warp and weft threads have both been dyed black with deeply fixed colour. All black stitching. Blacker than a pirate’s heart.

This is the same denim as used for our M16 black selvedge jackets. It stays black for a long time and fades slowly with grey highlights. It really is as good as a solid pair of black canvas jeans.

It's in the details...

Planet conscious jeans

We source all our denim from Italian textile masters, Candiani. Their approach to production innovation and sustainability is nothing short of exceptional. It’s no wonder they are considered the world’s most eco denim mill.

Your GVNR 16 / Double Black are made from Candiani selvedge denim and have the highest environmental credentials.

Environmental sustainability is at the forefront of all stages of production of selvedge denim. Using BCI cotton, a micro-plastics-free dye process, solar power and water recycling to name some of the process used.

What is Selvedge?

Selvedge is old-style denim, woven on narrow looms and typically has a more characterful appearance and a higher level of quality than mass-produced denim.

You can see the selvedge (self edged) stripe at the turn up. It’s where during weaving the outside edge of the cloth has been woven together to stop it having a raw edge.

Care Guide

F*cking up your jeans is really difficult IF you follow our care guide. If you choose not to, you’re on your own.

When you buy any of our denim garments, we’ll throw a copy of our Denim Care booklet in your parcel.

If your booklet goes walkabout, gets eaten by a dog, or stolen as a bookmark, no worries, we’ve published a copy of it online, so no excuses.

To turn up or not to turn up?

The GVNR comes with a turn up so that the selvedge is visible. This means that there is 2 inch extra length in the inseam. 

Depending on the length you order you can adjust leg length, by rolling up or down, to get it just as you like it, or even do away with the turn up altogether.

The turn up is pressed but not sewn in place.

Sizing Guide

Ed wears 32/28 in the photos. He’s 5’8″ and 10.5 stone

16oz jeans will be a bit stiff at first but with a few day’s wear the denim will soften and take your shape to fit just right. There’s isn’t a wearing in period of months like you get with, for example, 21oz denim.

Any questions at all please email us and we’ll do our best to guide you.

    Well, I’ve not worn them out yet cos it’s dang hot and they are a hefty pair of jeans… but hell yeah, they feel and look great! Top quality through and through and they fit like a glove. Really happy that I chose HebTroCo over some similar and larger selvedge rivals. Not trying to wish summer away but roll on Autumn, so I can show these badboys off.

    These jeans are roomy up top in the right places without being too big anywhere. Snugger than I’m accustomed to below the knees. That’s not a bad thing, but I wouldn’t do slimmer.
    Attention to detail. Really Black. Very nice inside. Great pockets. Pockets. Nice rivets and buttons – all Black. That patch.
    I wore them 4 days and ordered the same in indigo.

    Loving the weight and darkness of the GNVR 16 in Black/Black/Black.
    It’s the small details like the artwork on the main button, the smoothness of the wonderfully heavy denim, belt loops ready to take a Proper heavy belt.
    And in Black Black Black they pass for office wear too.
    Loving them – thanks team!
