Oni Denim is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, Oishi-San has created a unique and limited fabric with two coloured weft variations, Moca and Olive-ish Grey, making it the culmination of 20 years of Oni Denim and the perfect tribute to Okayama. This is the olive-grey version in the brand's iconic 622 relaxed tapered cut.
This fabric is based on the iconic 20oz Secret denim, but the indigo warp threads structure has an additional secret twist. Further, the indigo is darker, and Oishi has used a thicker slub olive/grey coloured #5 weft thread. The result is an excellent rough textured fabric with all the slub and hair of the secret denim, maintaining the same level of comfort and breathability but featuring a striking olive-ish grey weft that will show through as the jeans are washed and worn.
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. Both leather patch and pocket flasher are specially designed for the 20th Anniversary. In addition, to commemorate the release of this special edition, we will be include a 20th Anniversary olive-ish grey bandana in your package.
The cut is the iconic Oni relaxed Tapered fit. A modern slim silhouette with a bit of extra room in the top block for comfort, tapering to a narrow leg opening.
*Please, keep in mind that, due to low tension, "Secret Denim" fabric will stretch quite a bit, so if your jeans are a tight fit at the start, don't worry because after just a few uses you will have gained the perfect fit.
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.
