As we are preparing to get 3sixteen to our stock in Finland, I thought it would be good to share some sizing tips and measurements on the jeans. Since it’s a new brand we are working with I thought it would be best to quote the good folks from 3sixteen directly as I can only comment on the size 36 SL-100x jeans I have at hand and which I have tried. But do refer to the below details for more information on the sizing for the two upcoming models.

The denim used is 3sixteen’s flagship 14.5 oz. raw indigo selvedge denim, which is custom woven exclusively for the brand by Kuroki Mill in Okayama, Japan.
To quote 3sixteen, “all of our jeans feature SANFORIZED denim. You can expect up to 1″ of initial stretch in the waist after 2 weeks of initial wear. Upon your first wash, the jeans will shrink up to 0.5″ in the waist and 0.5″ in length as long as they are washed in cold water and hung up to dry (our recommended method of laundering).”
We are quite excited to have the brand in our catalogue and will be posting more about 3sixteen in the upcoming days. Stay tuned…
