ED-80 Slim Tapered
The Edwin ED-80 is one of the most popular styles from the brand here at Urban Industry. With it’s updated ‘modern’ fit, the ED-80 provides a slim fitting style for a smarter look. The leg is tapered throughout, following the shape of the leg all the way down to the ankle, without feeling too restrictive, while a longer yoke allows for more room and more comfort around the butt and crotch area. Available with us in various colours and washes.
ED-45 Loose Tapered
The ED-45 is a fairly new addition to our Edwin line up, which offers up a slightly looser fit for the wearer. The Mid-Rise style is designed to be worn on the hip, providing more room around the thigh while tapering further down towards the calf and ankle ensures that the looser look still keeps a nice shape.
ED-85 Slim Tapered Drop Crotch
The ED-85 is the skinniest style we stock from the brand. Another fairly new addition to the 5-pocket collection, this slim tapered style is suited to those that prefer more of a snug fit while the low crotch adds comfort where it’s needed. Looks great when paired with a lo profile pair of Chuck’s or Vans with an open check shirt.
ED-55 Regular Tapered
The ED-55 is the most popular shape from the Japanese brand, adored by streetwear and menswear aficionados alike, stacking perfectly against a pair of sneakers or more buly boot styles. The relax tapered fit offers more room around the rise and the thigh area, and then begins to taper off past the knee and down on to the ankle. If you’ve been hitting the gym and your thighs aren’t squeezing in to the ED-80’s, the ED-55 could be the style for you.
Edwin Nashville Red Listed Selvage Denim
A true classic from the brand, a key style in the brands Japanese collection. After it was discontinued, Edwin’s European chapter adopted the brand in response to the markets demand for quality, selvage denim and has remained largely unchanged for the last couple of decades. A simple, core style which feature a high-rise and traditional straight leg which is a fair bit wider than the other styles from the brand, it’s a popular style amongst the workwear market as a robust, heavyweight denim option. It’s a style that you can really get the most out over time and wear.
