Introducing Japan Blue 16.5oz "Monster" Selvedge


Today we're bringing you the second of Japan Blue's new denim: The 16.5oz Monster selvedge! This heavy-weight, slubby denim has great character, and even greater details. The leather patch on the back is made by none other than Tanner Goods in Portland, Oregon. An important difference to note between these two denim is that the skinny fit is unsanforized, while the tapered is sanforized. The skinny was made primarily for the Asian market, where more traditional fabrics are favored. While we would have preferred the tapered fit follow suit, Japan Blue decided that markets abroad would rather have sanforized fabrics. The irregular weave of the denim can still be seen in the weft of the tapered, but the surface is not as bumpy and fuzzy. Of course, both of the fabrics are still amazing heavy-weight denim that would be perfect for the coming season!

Japan Blue 16.5oz "Monster" Tapered Sanforized Raw Selvedge Denim - Model JB0412. Sizes 28-34, 36. 100% cotton. Made in Japan. $220. For more information on the Japan Blue JB0412, click here.

Introducing Japan Blue 14oz Tight Straight Black Raw Selvedge Denim - Model JB0716


The most recent shipment of Japan Blue Denim came with a few new items. We'd like to start by introducing their first solid black denim. The solid black fabric is very smooth to the touch, and as we've come to expect from Japanese manufacturing the construction is excellent. The fit is slightly different from their other tight straight fit: tight in the top block with a medium rise, which tapers to a slim knee. From the knee down the fit is essentially straight.

We're excited to present to you another of Momotaro's new denim: The Deep Indigo Brown Weft! This is definitely one of the more creative fabrics that has come out of Rampuya mills. The super dark indigo and fit are the exact same as our very popular 0702, but instead a rustic brown takes the place of the sulphur dyed weft. From afar these jeans take on a unique, earthy tone, while up close the quality and details come to light.
