DENIME Japanese Raw Selvedge Denim - "New XX" and "New 66"


We are proud to introduce our first shipment of Japanese denim-making pioneer - DENIME. Our first shipment includes 2 different models: "New XX" (photographed above) and "New 66."

DENIME "New XX" is a revised version of the original DENIME "XX," which is inspired by vintage denim produced in 1947 USA. "New XX" is a more modern interpretation of this classic 1947 fit. "New XX" is slim through the thigh, hips, and waist line with a lower rise, yet keeps intact the 1947 original straight leg cut and all of the vintage details. In other words, DENIME "XX" is a more true reproduction of the original 1947 cut, and "New XX" is slimmer.

DENIME "New XX" Japanese raw selvedge denim straight leg. Shrink-to-fit Japanese raw selvedge produced on vintage shuttle looms. Sizing is available from 29-36. Made in Japan. $285. For more information on DENIME "New XX" click here.
Leather patch.
Custom engraved buttons with DENIME logo.
Button fly.
Custom engraved copper rivets with DENIME logo with copper backing. Chainstitched waist band. Heavy duty pocket bags 100% made of cotton.
DENIME signature gold selvedge and contrast gold stitching. Chainstitched hems.
DENIME "New 66" is a revised version of the original DENIME "66," which is inspired by vintage denim produced in 1966 USA. Just like the relationship between DENIME "New XX" and "XX" described above, "New 66" is a more modern interpretation of the classic 1966 fit - it is slim through the thigh, hips, and waist line with a lower rise, yet keeps intact the original 1966 straight leg cut and all of the vintage details. DENIME "66" is a more true reproduction of the original 1966 cut, and the "New 66" is slimmer as described. "New 66" uses the same fabric and many of the same details used on "New XX."
DENIME "New 66" Japanese raw selvedge denim straight leg. Shrink-to-fit Japanese raw selvedge produced on vintage shuttle looms. Sizing is available from 29-36. Made in Japan. $235. For more information on DENIME "New 66" click here.

Introducing DENIME - Pioneer of Reproduction Japanese Selvedge Denim


Denime is a pioneer in Japanese denim making. Denime remakes now hard-to-find hidden masterpieces from the 50s to 70s America, with the concept of faithfully conveying the atmosphere of the old time, insisting on superior denim making at the levels of the fabric, fade, sewing, accessories, and wear. While faithfully remaking the old items, Denime incorporates modern trend.
The brand name “Denime” (pronounced du-nee-m) derives from a sturdy fabric called “Serge de Nimes” in the 15th century Nice, France. The word “denim” itself is believed to derive from this “Serge de Nimes.” Denime initially created its classic Denime XX type in 1988 through dismantling the 1950s deadstock denim at the thread level to scrutinize the place of where the cotton is originally made, thread number, color, dye, and woven yarn count. Denime XX type was initially made only 144 pieces. Denime took about six months from the creation of the prototype to begin the production of XX type, after confirming the successful fading. Denime denim shows its true strength after about six months of wear.

Our first shipment of Denime has already shipped from Japan. We will have Denime denims in stock very soon!
