The "G3" Jean is a masterpiece. The fit provides room in the top block, thigh and hip, so you can move freely and comfortably while fading this fantastic pair of jeans.
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.
This G3 14oz denim fabric is woven using an old Toyoda G3 shuttle loom. The Toyoda automatic loom "G3" was first introduced half a century ago. As the earliest power loom in Japan, the maintenance can be challenging simply because there are no more new replacement parts available; when maintenance is needed, they can only replace the parts by gleaning the parts that are still functioning from the same models which are no longer in use. Besides, it has very low productivity as it weaves only 5 meters of fabrics per hour. However, G3 is the only machine that still weaves the same workwear-like denim that had a unique rough surface, yarn evenness and ruggedness as what it did half a century ago. Studio D'Artisan is carrying on the legend of the earliest power loom "G3" and producing original denim with it.
The workwear-like denim that had a unique rough surface, yarn evenness and ruggedness can never be produced by modern machines with high productivity and consistency.
The 14oz indigo fabric has a beautiful slubby and rough texture with a fantastic hand feel. Its irregular appearance belies the surprisingly smooth comfort for the wearer.
Among its details, we can find a customized Studio D'Artisan leather patch and Studio D'Artisan custom branded copper rivets and nickel buttons.
Under the slogan of "Reconstruction of great old things", Studio D'Artisan is one of the iconic brands of Japanese denim. Founded by Shigeharu Tagaki and reproducing classics of French and American workwear since 1979, Studio D'Artisan takes pride in having been one of the Osaka 5.
