11 TO 13 OZ.

Canvas current, jeans 4 seasons.

 

13 TO 16-OZ.

Canvas very heavy (very common).

 

SELVEDGE OR SELFEDGE ?

In truth, selvedge is the contraction of self / edge in English, literally " finished edge ".

This means that lespans of fabric are cut from the edging that finishes the roll of fabric.

The recovery of the border security allows the fabric not to fray : a pledge of quality that you particularly appreciate.

We mark the canvas selvedge with the small liseret of color (usually red and white) which covers the inside of the leg.
