Japan Blue x Blue Owl Workshop Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster" Fade Update!


Here's a quick update on a pair of the Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster" from our office. While these are far from retired, we were amazed by just how much these have aged in such a short amount of time. Over the past 4 months, Jay has worn these nearly everyday, while walking roughly 10 miles a day between his commute to and from the office. During the 4 months of wear, these jeans have seen 2 full washes. Check out the images below and for more information on the Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster," click on the link above.

Japan Blue x Blue Owl Workshop
16.5oz Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster"
4 Months | 2 Washes

Front side.

Back side.

Notice how much the leather patch has changed in such a short amount of time.

Jay switches his phone between both pockets, as evident by the outline on both sides.

Visibly defined creases behind the knees, formed from walking large amounts at an intense pace.

One thing we love about the Deep Blue Monster series is the level of contrast we've seen amongst the fabrics. As you can see here, the fabric, which starts out as a deep dark Indigo/Black (seen along the waistband), gradually changes to a very vibrant, high-contrast blue, which will become even more apparent over time.

Notice how much the broken twill becomes visible with wear, as does the vertical fading.

Lots of wear on both knees.

Substantially beat up cuffs.

Get to Know Fremont: Milstead & Co. Coffee


This month we introduce an on-going series to our blog/newsletter based around our very own Seattle neighborhood, Fremont. Proudly known as the “Center of the Universe,” the quirky neighborhood of Fremont is home to a number of Seattle’s best local businesses. In this series, we’ve cataloged some of our favorite local restaurants, coffee shops, and hangout spots for those of you visiting from out of town, or those of you new to the area. Check out our picks below and keep your eye on this column for more tips in the future.

Situated on the corner of N 34th St. and Troll Ave. N., this rustic coffee shop has quickly become one of the staples in the Seattle coffee scene since it’s inception in 2011. Founded by Andrew Milstead, Milstead & Co. prides itself on serving carefully sourced coffee from local and international roasters. Their dedication and passion for coffee has gained Milstead & Co. national acclaim as one of the best new coffee shops today.


While you're there, don't hesitate to ask Milstead's team of baristas questions about the espresso shot they're pouring. The coffee experts behind the counter will proudly tell you anything from where the coffee is sourced, roasting methods, even down to differences in tasting notes depending on temperature.

If you visit the shop in the warmer months, make sure to step outside into Milstead’s outdoor patio, which features beautiful repurposed furniture, locally grown plants, and an old firetruck that sits in the shadow of the Aurora Bridge.

If you’re inside, check out the well-curated selection of roasters, brewing equipment, and teas available for home use.
