Benzak - BDD-516 - 16oz Heavy Slub RHT. When we knew we had the option to grab some Made in Japan denim from Benzak, this was our first choice. If we had to choose one weight of denim forever, it would be 16oz. And, you already know we love slub. These have so much texture that you would rightfully expect from Japanese denim. On top of that, they have all the extra details listed below you usually only see from Japan. The double-needle indigo stitch on the top of the back pockets and the hidden single needle along the inseam are two of our favorites. That's because they are details that only reveal themselves as the denim ages and fades. You also can't deny the 100% brass buttons and rivets. And, pocket bags. My goodness, the pocket bags look and feel amazing. Keep in mind, even though this is a 16oz denim, it will break it much quicker than your standard heavy slub denim. The left-hand twill will ensure that. Overall, it's one of the best pairs we've laid hands on in some time. They're pretty phenomenal.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 30 in the images. His typical size is a 31, but these tend to fit bigger. On this heavier, higher-waisted denim, we would recommend sticking with your true size. Sizing down one was admittedly too tight for Tommy. The BDD-516 is a slim-fitting silhouette with a high rise, snug thighs and slim tapered legs. It can be considered Benzak's Japanese-made equivalent of the B-01 SLIM. It’s the ideal fit for anyone looking for a higher version of the BDD-006, or aiming for a slimmer fitting option compared to the BDD-711.  Tommy is 5'10," 170lbs with a 32.5-33" true waist measurement.

Studio D'Artisan - "Amami Dorozome" Heavyweight Check Flannel Shirt - Brown.

The last time we saw this flannel it was dyed with Kakishibu. We didn't think that could be topped, but you know how much we love mud. Amami Dorozome is an age-old process done on the island of Amami-Oshima in Japan. It's a blend of mud and vegetable oil that creates rich earth tones in a washed-out, well-worn pigment only achievable through this process. In a traditional cotton check pattern such as this, it shines its brightest. We didn't get our hands on this personally last time, but we aren't going to let this one slip through our fingers.

Studio D'Artisan - 15.5oz Black O/W Sashiko Denim Jeans - Relaxed Taper.

These guys keep one-upping the Sashiko game every year. We didn't get a chance to see these in person, but we're so glad we picked them up. They are so much better than we could've even imagined. At first sight, they look like a denim pant lined with a hickory stipe screen print. Then, we got close up and realized it was the vertical sashiko creating that line work. The hand-feel after the one-wash is beyond soft, but they're still packed with so much color you're still going to get those incredible highs and lows in the knees. The great part about sashiko is you get varied high points throughout the garment that catch wear in a different way. The inspiration for sashiko garments derives from the Japanese sashiko which never truly died. They would use pieces of the last garment to create the new, hand stitching throughout. Well, they've taken this concept and created a modern work of art. They've used a combination of No.6 warp and No.5 weft yarns on specially calibrated Jacquards looms. Their hope is to replicate the Sashiko stitchwork of the kimonos, and we'd say they've accomplished that pretty damn well.

Iron Heart - 13oz Military Serge Western Shirt - Brown.

The only thing that could've improved this serge western was a new color. This one was originally called Mocha Brown, which we think is very suitable. It's this rich color that suits this now iconic shirt. It used to be that we rarely saw green from Iron Heart, but now green is a staple. So, we've been super stoked to see khakis and browns rearing their pretty heads. You can't go wrong with the western cut, unless you don't size up, as it has some absolutely gorgeous details. We love the yokes and Permex buttons the most on these beauties.
