Japan Blue Jeans x Benzak - 16.5oz. Côte d’Ivoire Cotton Monster Selvedge. *These are extremely limited in nature. We will attempt to make exchanges, where possible. Please use the size chart for the most accurate fit the first time* It's pretty incredible to get two wonderful, "once-in-ten-years" kinds of collaborations in a matter of 8 months. This round is unequivocally one of the nicest pairs of the year. It has all of the details we look for on the level of customization we only dream of. This is the culmination of ten years of friendship between two of our most beloved brands. It all starts with the signature baby blue Benzak inseam. The next thing that catches our eye is the dual Ivory Coast and Japanese selvedge IDs. This is definitely a Japan Blue standard, but you'll also notice many of Benzak's "Special" pairs have dual-color IDs as well. You'll also see Benzaks signature coin pocket as well as many, many other details. The 16.5oz Cotton Monster Selvedge is a texture wonderland, and it speaks for itself. Everything from the cotton cultivation to harvesting is done by hand; this benefits the cotton fibers as they are rarely damaged, creating a super-high quality base for this heavy-weight fabric. Because there are no pesticides used or no modification is applied, this type of cotton is considered ‘closest to original’. This 16.5 oz. slubby ‘monster fabric’ is woven with a low tension, which creates a texture similar to hand-woven fabrics known for amazing fading results.

Fit Notes: 

A modern tapered silhouette with a skinny* figure from knees to hems which makes your legs look sharper and more stylish. Even though it’s a skinny* model, there are rooms around thighs and thus the jeans are recommended for various types of people including a person with a larger body.

*Skinny is following JBJ's own description, because these can fit very tight when bought at true size.

Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 31 in the images. That is his typical size, and it seems to work really well in the JBJ iteration of this pair (it was tight, but doable in the waist). Pay close attention to those size charts, and if all else fails...size up one size from what you think you are. 99% of our denim repairs are people buying one size too small.  Tommy is 5'10," 162lbs with a 32-33" true waist measurement.

Freenote - 15oz Avila Slim Straight Denim - Blue/Brown.

It's been some time since we've had indigo denim from Freenote, and we couldn't think of a better introduction than this blue/brown. If you know anything about our preferences, you know we love an earth-tone weft. Well, it doesn't get any more earthy than this. The brown on these is deeper than any we've seen from persimmon, turmeric, or catechu dyes in the past. It's a true mocha-colored brown that we think makes for one hell of a stylistic denim. The contrast between indigo and brown is a lot less harsh than that of a traditional jean, and this makes for a better-looking cuff in our opinion. It's also right in our sweet spot for weight. We really dig anything between 14-16oz. It has the perfect amount of crunch to give you all of those wonderful lines around the legs without being so hard to break in. This is the fabric we've been waiting for Freenote to work with for years!

This is the fabric we've been waiting for Freenote to work with for years!
Freenote - CD-4 Jacket - Black.

When we saw this fabric, even via catalog images, we knew we had to have it in the shop. It's such a unique twist for the guys at Freenote that lends to a more contemporary look. If you're like us, you'll think this baby is waxed up front. Crazy enough, it's not. This is a double pigment dyed fabric from Japan that gives off the look of a waxed piece, without all the upkeep of a waxed piece. It has a nice crunchy texture to it that even feels waxed in person. We couldn't believe our ears when they told us about it at a recent show. It's lined throughout the body with Alpaca and the sleeves have this gorgeous burnt orange satin. This thing is truly luxurious. It's so warm and looks so damn good. It functions like an N-1 at about half the price!

Freenote - Jepson Sashiko Plaid - Indigo.

The Jepson is a known staple at this point, but their ability to make it look new with every release is pretty astonishing. We said that last time but they've done it again. A mix of sashiko and plaid is almost too much to handle. It's a classic 2 pocket shirt that can be worn with almost anything. It has so many layers to explore right now, and even more, will expose its true nature once the indigo starts to fade. This baby is a standalone piece that doesn't really need other layers to make it pop.
Indigofera - Kurt Jacket - Indigo Single Stripe.

The single stripe has become a staple at the shop over the last couple of years, but always in pant form. When we saw this classic chore coat-style work jacket come up, we couldn't say no. This fabric always constructs so nicely and the indigo pops like crazy when it's hit with the one wash. We are super intrigued by the mismatched pockets and all the extra sewing work throughout. The extra pockets and banded collar are the extra details that draw you in, but most people stay for that gorgeous Japanese fabric.
