JAPAN BLUE JEANS new jeans line “CIRCLE"
The inspiration behind these jeans was a phenomenon that happens with months of wear on a belt. When you lay what once was a straight flat belt on a counter, you'll notice right away, it is now rounded and curved to fit your body. This is how they started their pattern.
The pattern that used to be a straight belt has been renewed, and a “curve belt” has been added to pursue a fit around the waist. New jeans that make it easier to wear “full-fledged denim” that is uncompromising in domestic production, and can be added to any lifestyle.
Four silhouettes connected by curves draw a circle, making the creation of a Made in Kojima denim proud.

Last year we ran the Momotaro version of this shirt off the rails. It sold like mad and we just couldn't seem to keep it in stock. This time, it's from Japan Blue and it has these wonderful new details. The bright blue stitching on the buttons is totally signature for Japan Blue. It also has a roomier fit in the body, which anyone who snagged the last version will tell you was probably needed. It's a little more modern with still a nice flare of heritage and all the fading potential in the world. A sashiko-like fabric has a tendency to start with character and gain even more with time.
How could we say no to this? They did it perfectly. The Cote D'Ivoire Type II, with the modified handwarmer pockets was a best seller for us in its standard form. Trust us when we say, this blanket liner takes it to a whole other level. They not only lined the entire jacket, including the arms...but they've accented the cuffs, collar, pockets, and waist adjusters with the same fabric. This is the kind of stuff we nerd out over. The level of detail in this jacket is through the roof good. And, the fabric is that beautiful 13.5oz Cote D'Ivoire they're known for. It simply doesn't get better than this. It's the most complete blanket-lined jacket we've seen in our days as shop keepers.
We're always looking for more texture. Usually, it comes from fleck, slub, or some kind of special weaving pattern. In this case, it's a denim tweed. You got that right...tweed. The stuff they used to make more suits from without all the itch. But this time, they've done something quite magical. They've used a dark indigo denim to create what should be a beautifully aging and fading piece. The open pocket concept of a coverall jacket works incredibly well for a layering piece. This textured coat is one of the most beautiful things we've ever seen from Japan Blue Jeans...maybe any of our brands honestly.
