akkadenim are proud to be part of the 'Denim World Championships' our entry is the worlds first 32oz interlace woven denim pant. We developed this jean for no other reason than to see if we could do it and have other developments coming through soon so keep in touch. 

The DWC is a contest which has been four years in the making, coming from small and humble roots to become the undisputed biggest denim contest in the world. It began in 2011 with the first Heavyweight Denim Championships, the HWDC (as it would become better known), was put together as a small contest contained within the Superfuture denim forum and supported by exclusive US retailer Self Edge, its mission was to let people take their love for heavy denim on a two year journey, with the result being some of the most beautifully faded and worn heavy denim ever produced. The format was simple, with contestants asked to simply wear and document the progress of their jeans over a 24 month period, and the prize was a Championship belt.

The waist measurement... ok let's start with a "no don't do it like that"...there enough said.

This is the correct way to measure the waist fold the waistband about 4'/8cm away from the fly... this will give you the true measurement, then measure between the edges at the top of the waistband.


The inside leg or inseam is measured from the top of the seam at the crotch to the bottom of the hem. 

The hem or opening is measured across the bottom of the leg... the diameter is the measurement from side seam to the other side don't measure from seam to seam as the front panel is always smaller. Just pull the opening tight, flatten and measure from side to side.

The knee measurement is taken from approximately 35cm from the crotch seam, fold the jean flat and measure from side to side.

The back rise is measured from the crotch to the bottom of the waistband.

The rise is measured from the crotch to the bottom of the waistband.
