Like our bedford cord, Jaspe is another very old, historic workwear fabric. Generally found on overshirts used by miners and train engineers, jaspe was traditionally a very flat fabric in order to prevent anything from catching/snagging during its wear. It's woven with a twisted yarn which gives it some visual texture and helps it hide dirt particularly well. Although it's a lighter, more comfortable fabric, it can withstand very hard wear because of how dense the fabric is. You will get some stretch with jaspe.
We made these in an ideal straight-leg five-pocket pattern; not too slim but not too wide. This fabric will stretch, so don't worry if they feel a bit tight when you first put it on.
They will shrink in a wash but stretch right back out. If you machine dry them you may lose a little length in the inseam, so we recommend air-drying them if possible.
