Japan Blue Indigo Discharge Print Shirts


There are quite a few exciting things in store from the latest shipment from Japan Blue! To start off, we have the first shirts they've ever produced. Using an indigo discharge print method, similar to fabrics used by The Hill-Side, both shirts have an amazing color that will develop just as well. We're very pleased with the fit they've come up with: very slim throughout the body and sleeve, with good lengths on all sizes. The shirts feature thick buttons, side gussets, and the exceptional sewing quality that all our Japan-made clothing is known for.

Canada Goose Fernie Hoodie


The Fernie hoodie is a slim-fitted outer shell piece that is ripe with texture and high tech fabrics. As part of the premium Branta line the hoodie uses only the highest quality fabrics and fill available. Despite being the lowest level on Canada Goose's "Thermal Experience Index", the jacket is still rated for warmth down to negative 5 degrees celsius. Its the details that really make a jacket like this, so check them out below.

Canada Goose Fernie Hoodie in Graphite. 800 fill power white Hutterite goose down. Made in Canada. $650. For more information, click here.

The inside of the hoodie is a premium polyester filled with the highest quality goose down available in the world. The tags include a certificate of authenticity from Canada Goose, and an assurance of quality from the Down Association of Canada. There is a single zipper-secured inner pocket.

The hood itself is a perfect example of all the textures and fabrics the hoodie offers: soft, quilted, down-filled center, with a smooth water-resistant shell. Premium lightweight fleece lines the bottom of the hood to comfort the nape of the neck.

The traditional Canada Goose logo is made all black for the Branta line. This sleek patch is included in mini-version on the inside of the inner pocket.

Premium YKK Japan zipper, custom made for Canada Goose. Canada Goose branded zipper pulls and zipper tape.

The sleeve is half quilted near the wrist. The cuff uses the same premium fleece that the hood has.

Tellason is coming at us with another of their great all-American pieces. This time, its one of the heaviest sweaters we've ever seen.

The sweater comes in two styles: the classic crew neck, and the pullover hoodie. Both in a neutral grey color and classic, comfortable fit, these sweaters are perfect for keeping you warm on a lazy sunday morning.

Momotaro Restocks: Vintage Label 0201, 0701, 0705SP


The whole vintage label series is filled up once again!  A new shipment of restock denim has just arrived from Kojima including 3 denims of our all-time favorites. Back in stock in all sizes 28-36 are the 0701 "Tight Straight" Vintage Label denim, 0705sp "Tight Straight" Going to Battle denim, and 0201 "Slim Straight" Vintage Label denim.

Momotaro "Going to Battle" 15.7oz "tight straight" raw selvedge denim - model 0705sp. 100% Zimbabwe cotton. Sizes 28-34, 36. Made in Japan. $295. For more information on the Momotaro "Going to Battle" 15.7oz "tight straight" raw denim, click here.

The "Going to Battle" series uses the same 15.7oz selvedge fabric as used on the Vintage Label line, except the "Going to Battle" series is a one wash denim. The denim has been washed one time using sea water from Okayama coast. The wash shrinks the fabric down so that it is ready to wear as is and no further shrinkage is expected. It also has less starch and is less rigid compared to the Vintage Label, making it comfortable to wear immediately, yet it will still produce amazing fades from prolong wear. The fit is the same "tight straight" fit which is the same as the Vintage Label 0701, but since the fabric is a one wash the measurements will be different and the fabric will lay differently. Please use the posted measurements to choose your size.

The "Going to Battle" stripes is one of the signature designs of the Momotaro label. The "Going to Battle" stripes are a symbol of Japanese tradition representing honor and strength. The warrior stripes also represent the flag carried by "Momotaro" in the original folklore story.

Momotaro vintage label 15.7oz "slim straight" raw selvedge denim - model 0201. 100% Zimbabwe cotton. Sizes 28-34, 36. Made in Japan. $295. For more information on the Momotaro vintage label "slim straight" raw denim, click here.

Momotaro's "slim straight" denim fit is slim in the top block, has a low rise, and visually appears as a straight leg but does have a minimal taper from mid-thigh to the leg opening. This fit has a touch more room in the thigh and leg compared to the "tight straight" fit.

Momotaro vintage label 15.7oz "tight straight" raw selvedge denim - model 0701. 100% Zimbabwe cotton. Sizes 28-34, 36. Made in Japan. $295. For more information on the Momotaro vintage label "tight straight" raw denim, click here.

Momotaro's "tight straight" denim fit is slim in the top block, has a low rise, runs slim in the leg, and tapers slightly torwards the leg opening.

The fabric used on all 3 denims is a 15.7oz super-dense 6s yarn made with 100% Zimbabwe cotton and dyed to a deep blue natural indigo. The fabric has a hairy surface with a good amount of slub and character. Here are some other features used in all 3 denims:

Custom engravedg buttons with Momotaro logos along the button fly.

The pink selvedge and pink thread along the interior inseam are common features of Momotaro denim. The pink (peach) color has come to represent both the region of Okayama (which is known for peaches) and the peach from the Japanese folklore story of "Momotaro".

Close up of top left corner of coin pocket which has a hiden selvedge detail. Notice the subtle hint of pink selvedge showing along the edge just below the copper rivet.

Back side of copper rivets are custom engraved with Momotaro's peach symbol. Pocket bags are a heavy cotton gauze which is soft, yet very sturdy.

Corter Leather "Bottle Opener" Key Hook: New Aged Brass


Just in time for a late Christmas shipment we've got brass key hooks back! This time, they're an aged brass instead of the shiny solid brass Eric made before. The key hooks, which are cast in California, are made of solid steel and then coated with brass. This allows the little accessory to age beautifully as the coating slowly rubs off to reveal the steel interior.

Corter Leather "bottle opener" key hook in aged brass. 100% forged steel. One size. Made in USA. $36.50. For more information on the Corter Leather bottle opener in aged brass, click here.
