If you are looking for sharp fades, there is no better option than Pure Blue Japan's double indigo. It allows maximum contrast and the fastest fades we have ever seen while remaining incredibly wearable day-to-day.
The brand developed a 18oz fabric based on their iconic XX denim for this double indigo rope dyed creation. Iwaya-san (the owner of PBJ) wanted a heavier version of their most demanded 14oz denim. So the brand is bringing it back on steroids. The result is fantastic: 18oz, very slubby and stunning texture. It has been low-tension woven on a vintage shuttle loom in Ibara, Okayama, so the fabric's production is minimal.
The jeans are made with all the superior-quality Pure blue Japan details such as iron buttons, high-quality pocket bags, heavy-duty bar tacks, long stitching, a custom lambskin black leather patch and the signature Pure Blue Japan "shoai" embroidery (Indigofera leaf).
These heavyweight jeans make a great daily and comfortable wardrobe essential due to the relaxed tapered cut, which features a tapered leg from the knee down while providing ample room on the top block and thighs (PBJ 019 cut).
Pure Blue Japan is the dream of Kenichi Iwaya. Passionate about Denim, he grew up in Okayama and acquired experience working in different mills around the region, until in 1997 he decided to create his own brand. Ever since, Iwaya-San has been obsessed with producing incredible fabrics with unique, slubby textures and a distinct character. This is why he only works with shuttle looms from Ibara, Okayama, using only the best cottons from the United States and India. Since its emergence until today, Pure Blue Japan has consolidated its position as one of the touchstone labels in Japanese Denim, and its excellent work has established it as one of the masters of indigo dye.
