Special Collaboration: Swiss Jeans Freak x Candiani Denim

A unique collaboration to celebrate the “Swiss Jeans Freak’s” 60th birthday. Candiani Denim made Ruedi Karrer’s dream come true by realizing his very own jeans in a limited 60-piece collection. This collaboration was designed by Ruedi, engineered by Candiani, and manufactured 100% in Italy by IMJIT.

The Swiss Jeans Freak 1st Edition jean is a one of a kind workwear fit adapted from IMjiT’s Relaxed 805 model, otherwise known as “Groundskeeper fit” that features a wide leg with a high rise. A long list of details make this jean outstanding. There’s the custom back pocket stitching that outlines Ruedi’s hometown mountain the Piz Beverin, custom labeling inside the jeans, and hidden feature in the back pocket that will only appear after heavy fading. Not to mention the two-tone stitching, a Lee-tribute label on the right back pocket, and edition numbered leather patch to name a few.

Fabric: This garment is made with Candiani’s SL3663 V-RUEDI Preshrunk fabric, made especially for Ruedi Karrer. The indigo shade has a very marked green cast. The yarns in the warp a characterized by short and heavy slubs that will bring the fabric alive fade after fade. The hemp weft gives it a slightly nepsed look and an authentic handfeel. The color is sized with Candiani’s 100% biodegradable “V” Sizing Technology which makes this jeans 100% plastics and micro-plastics free.

Ruedi Karrer aka the Swiss Jeans Freak is internationally known for his love of denim. His passion led him to create the world’s first independent Jeans Museum with over 14.000 jeans and jackets. In 2019 he went one step further and together with Candiani, to celebrate his 60th birthday, he created his very own jean, producing a limited-edition collection of 60 pieces.
