At only 12oz, these ONI jeans are a fantastic choice to wear in the summer. Yet, their weaving construction means they have the durability and breathability to deal with global warming. They are also the perfect smart-casual gear for any situation, unlocking a host of stylish summer outfits to get creative and experiment with.
The fabric is a 12oz navy dyed-thread (both warp and weft) denim made of American and Peruvian cotton blend. Oni invested a lot of time experimenting with super low tension denim with an extremely uneven texture and high breathability. We have never seen a crazy slubby texture in a 12oz denim before.
The jeans are made with all the superior-quality ONI details such as copper buttons, high-quality pocket bags, heavy-duty bar tacks and a custom veg-tanned deerskin leather patch.
The cut is the ONI's 612 relax 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 mid-rise.
The legend of ONI is alive to this day. In recent years Oishi-San has devoted himself to experimenting with widely varying grammages, rough textures, different indigo dyeing techniques and novelty cuts while always maintaining a very limited production and wielding his experience in denim which now goes back more than 60 years.
