We, as denimheads, are indigo lovers. The dark indigo jeans are classic but thankfully, Japanese denim brands offer us a few different options of colours with the same quality as a pair of standard indigo jeans. With these midweight 14.5oz jeans, the classic indigo warp is mixed with a grey sulphur dye, resulting in a beautiful colour that only Pure Blue Japan can create.
The texture is unique because the shuttle looms were manipulated to get an ultra-low tension, helping to create a very transpirable fabric being an excellent option for the summer and transitional weather months.
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 leather patch and the signature Pure Blue Japan "shoai" embroidery (Indigofera leaf).
This pair features a slim cut, fitted, tapered and finished with a flattering mid-rise (PBJ 013 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.
