Tanuki THT 12.5oz Ten High Tapered "Sky" Jeans

€206,61 €164,46


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 lightweight and the high breathability ratio of the fabric. Tanuki has combined low-tension and high-density weave techniques to create a variegated fabric with a fantastic amount of slub despite its lightweight.

The jeans are made with all the superior-quality Tanuki details such as copper buttons, embroidered logo 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 an 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 an 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.

The Tanuki brand was established in 2016 in Okayama Prefecture. It comprises a small group of great artisans who are passionate about denim and boast more than 30 years’ experience in other brands in the industry. If there is something that characterizes Tanuki garments in addition to its modern cuts, it is the quality and variety of its fabrics, with prime importance given to the best cottons, natural indigo and the application of different types of tension on the shuttle looms when producing the fabrics.
