Noir broken twill 13 oz jean Indigo

Broken twill denim was first used by Wrangler in 1964 as a way to combat the twisting effect characteristic of regular twill denim. Traditionally, twill is woven either to the right hand or the left hand, which will eventually twist itself after washing due to the tension. This is why you see the outseam of some denim twisted to the front or back of the leg. Broken twill avoids this. Instead of the twill running left or right, broken twill contains no distinct direction and instead alternates right and left - the end effect resembles a random zig-zag pattern as shown above.
