The Oni X Tanuki OTHT jeans are part of the exclusive 2018 collab between the legendary Oishi-San one-man brand Oni Denim, known for its low tension and irregular slubby denim, and Tanuki, a brand that uses details and a premium construction on a level that does not exist in the Japanese denim industry today.
In this collab both brands have worked together to produce a new version of the legendary ONI secret denim fabric, experimenting with 3 different types of cotton. The result is a beefier, unsanforized 21.5oz fabric, woven at low tension with an amazing slub and hairy texture and hand feel.
The jeans are made with all the superior quality Tanuki details such as copper buttons, embroidery, organic natural indigo rope dyeing and of course the beloved ONI x Tanuki custom vegetable-tanned deerskin leather patch.
The weft yarn is beige cotton. The warp yarn is rope-dyed with pure natural indigo dye. The fading potential is incredible and will showcase a variety of shades ranging over different tones of blue.
The cut is a modern high-tapered fit. The taper is pretty aggressive so that it gives a slim-fitting silhouette while allowing for a lot of space at the thighs with a high rise.
Near the back pocket there is a stitched Tanuki logo. their 二 (Ni) logo, two parallel lines in Japanese Kanji representing the number 2. The lower line represents the past, tradition, the standard, peace. The upper line represents the future, change, strength. . The red and blue colours of their logo refer to Japan’s flag, honouring their roots as denim artisans.
We stock both non-wash and one-wash versions. For the non-wash version, we highly recommend you soak the jeans in hot water before the first wear. Expect around 4cm (1.5in) of shrinkage in the waist and 6.4cm (2.5in) in the inseam when soaking so please, keep it in mind when looking for your size in the size chart (How to soak your denim). For the one-wash version, expect no shrinkage.
