The Tanuki THT (Ten high Tapered) is made with Tanuki’s new 2019 slubby lightweight fabric. An unsanforized lightweight 12.5-oz indigo extra low tension super breathable and textured fabric. “Ten (天)” is a Japanese word that translates as “Sky”. It defines the light weight and the high breathability ratio of the fabric. Tanuki has combined low-tension and high-density weave techniques to create a variegated fabric with an amazing amount of slub despite its light weight.
The jeans are made with all the superior-quality Tanuki details such as copper buttons, Tanuki logo embroidered back pocket detail and the iconic Tanuki custom vegetable-tanned deerskin leather patch.
Despite its lightweight fabric, the jeans will develop beautiful and contrasting fades with use.
For these jeans, Tanuki has included a Japanese extra-durable herringbone cotton-lined fabric in front pockets and a electric blue and white selvedge ID.
The weft yarn is white cotton. The warp yarn is rope-dyed with indigo dye. The fading potential is incredible and will showcase a variety of shades ranging over different tones of blue.
The cut is a modern high-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 high rise.
Near the back pocket there is a embroidered Tanuki logo. their 二 (Ni) logo, two parallel lines in Japanese Kanji representing the number 2. The lower line represents the past, tradition, the standard, peace. The upper line represents the future, change, strength. . The red and blue colours of their logo refer to Japan’s flag, honouring their roots as denim artisans.
