Pure Blue Japan
Pure Blue Japan KS-013-ST (Slim Tapered)
Please note that all of the listed measurements for jeans on our website are based on a weighted average of multiple pairs and sizes. As the products we carry all have a handmade aspect to them during production, no two pieces of the same product will be exactly the same size.
The Guide to Measuring your Jeans :
1. Waist : Pull the button up to line up with the back of the waistband, and measure from one side to the other. Double the measurement to get your waist size.
2. Front Rise : Measure from top of the front of the jeans, till the crotch seam.
3. Upper Thigh : Measure from the crotch seam, across the leg to the edge of the jeans.
4. Knee : Measure from the crotch seam, down the inseam until 33 centimeters (or 13 inches).
Knee: From that point, measure across the jeans.
5. Inseam : Measure from the crotch seam all the way down till the hem of the leg.
6. Leg Opening : Measure across the hem of the jeans.
The general sizing of the clothing we carry at Okayama Denim may be a more slim and tapered fit than similar sized clothing from Western brands (i.e. a tagged size 33 waist from one of the Japanese brands we carry, will probably fit like a size 32 in most international denim brands).
With all of the Unsanforized or Raw denim we carry, please note that the denim will slightly adjust in size according to the body and daily activities of the user. We advise against any washing before at least 20-30 wears. More importantly, for unsanforized denim we suggest to allow the natural creasing and fading to appear before considering washing. Many aficionados will wear their raw denim everyday for at least six months before carefully washing their jeans by hand.
*Once washed, raw denim will shrink between 2.5-5 cm (1-2inches) around the waist, about 8 cm (3 inches) on the inseam of the jeans. Please be careful of this fact when selecting the right size for your raw denim.
One Wash Denim
Washed denim is generally true to size and will not shrink significantly, as is the case with unsanforized. This fabric, typically referred to as One Wash or Sanforized, is pre-shrunk and will shrink only minimally after the first wash.

'KS' plays the role of acronym for the term coin by the PBJ team, Knubbed Selvedge. To be Knubbed means to be lumpy/bumpy and irregular. By far the best word choice for a denim we've seen, and still despite this, it is really impossible to explain exactly what this denim actually feels with just pictures and text.
Taking this concept of Knubbed Selvedge a step further, this is the latest iteration of the 'KS' series. Different from the predecessors like the KS-013 and the KS-013-WID, the latest KS-013-ST is the very first pair of PBJ Men's jeans to go partially PU, with the 95% Cotton/5% Polyurethane composition.
The jeans themselves have been meticulously planned, to allow for maximum comfort without having to adjust the flattering Slim Tapered silhouette. Because these jeans feature a stretch Selvedge denim, the fabric will have less give than, for example the XX-013, and the problems of knee bags or a larger than ideal knee or leg opening are less likely to happen as these will revert back to original measurements due to the stretch component of the fabric.
