The Japan Blue x Blue Owl 12oz "Hanpu" Tapered Selvedge Chino is now available online! For those of you that aren't aware, this fabric chino is an amazing mix of Japanese history and modern design. During the 1700's the fabric was used as sails for ships, as bags for workers and children, as canvas for art, and mawashi for sumo wrestlers. The fabric used on our collaboration chino is a lighter weight version of this historical fabric!

Custom branded cowhide patch with a Japan Blue Owl collaboration design.
The fabric we have created with Japan Blue uses a light 12oz Hanpu from a blend of USA and Australian cottons. The fabric's dye has been sulphur stabilized, meaning that it will age very gradually without any bleeding. Our friends at Rampuya likened the fabric to gold rush worker's wear, saying that it will gradually become softer with very nice fading.
All standard Japan Blue details are included in the chino, such as hidden pocket selvedge.
Custom branded doughnut buttons used on the whole fly.
The chino uses Japan Blue's signature blue inseam, and a very subtle and clean red selvedge.
