Japan Blue x Blue Owl 16.5oz Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster" - Model JBO-420 & JBO-220


We're proud to announce another new collaboration with Japan Blue, the Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster"! This denim was created because we have never seen a heavy weight broken twill, nor one with a dyed weft.  We also wanted to offer the amazing deep blue dye in a sanforized fabric, because we understand that the risky nature of unsanforized does not appeal to all denimheads. The Broken Twill Collaboration does not have a slubby vintage texture like the Unsanforized Deep Blue Monster, but the vertical fading will be nothing short of incredible. Broken twills have shown us some of the most incredible characteristics and fades, and we can't wait to see how the twill will handle an indigo/black and a heavy weight. We're offering it in both the Skinny and Tapered fit!

Japan Blue x Blue Owl 16.5oz Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster" - Tapered Model JBO-420. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 28-34, 36, 38. $220. For more information, click here.

Japan Blue x Blue Owl 16.5oz Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster" - Skinny Model JBO-220. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 28-34, 36. $220. For more information, click here.

As with our previous collaborations, the patch is a thick leather that is cut and stamped in Portland, Oregon by Tanner Goods.

Here you can see the awesome texture of the broken twill, and the vertical streaks that will make the fade outstanding.

The gunmetal rivets and custom branded buttons are a perfect tonal accompaniment to the dark denim.

The peaking hidden pocket selvedge is a detail that Momotaro and Japan Blue put in all their denim, and is one of our favorite details.

Classic red and white selvedge on this denim gives a great contrast when cuffing. Japan Blue's highlighted inseam is another great subtle detail that we love to see over more overt branding. The inseam will begin to blend in with the denim as it fades.
