The OD+SDA Double Collaboration Drop

In what has already been a year packed in with collaborations, we're gearing up and doubling down on the drop game this week, with not one...but two limited releases with SDA! With the holiday season in full swing, we're stoked to bring to you one of our most sought-after collaboration Jeans - alongside a superbly crafted piece of shirting, that we are proud to have as the only shirt in our 10th Year Anniversary collection.

  • OD+SDA "Matcha" Selvedge Jeans - Relaxed Tapered
  • OD+SDA "Matcha" Selvedge Jeans - Slim Straight

The OD+SDA "Matcha" Selvedge Jeans - $295

Commemorating of our 10 year milestone by bringing back the Matcha Jeans means a lot to us, particularly because the first time around we didn’t have enough pairs to even go into a general release. This time around, SDA's SD-903 Slim Straight cut joins the ranks along with the Relaxed Tapered cut which were featured in the initial release back in 2019.

This collaboration started from the soul of any pair of jeans - the fabric. Somehow, these green tea dyed yarns kick the already notoriously slubby "G3" denim into overdrive! The result is a highly irregular and hairy denim featuring ample slub. After three initial sample runs of the "Matcha" Selvedge fabric and switching out the hues of green (the number of times the yarns are dyed in the green tea derived dye vat changes the depth of the color), we landed on the color we felt best represented Japanese Green Tea.

The pocket bag, leather patch & custom "OD 10th Anniversary" tag is where we were able to let loose, and brought in artist and friend, Nathan Spoor, for the design. The custom OD+SDA "10th Anniversary" rayon tag sewn into the inner waistband draw inspiration from the rising sun imagery, and a classic red Selvedge ID, but with updated blue & silver coloring to commemorate our decade in denim. The back pockets are both lined with an irregular Indigo Kasuri fabric, celebrating a variegated range of indigo hues.

The OD+SDA Indigo Diamond Jacquard Shirt - $195

We kept this project under wraps until now but boy was it worth the wait. There's always a surprise or two in store when it comes to shirting fabrics but SDA's latest Indigo Diamond Jacquard had us wide-eyed when they first approached us with it. Somewhat subtle at first, this intricately woven fabric features rope-dyed indigo warp yarns ready to be faded at your will. The weave itself is highly tedious to calibrate and produce on a Jacquard loom, with the output maxing out at just a few meters per day.
With just enough fabric to produce 60 pieces, each shirt has been given the OD 10th Year Anniversary treatment, with a few details that truly do this killer fabric justice.

Digging into the details

Cut in a classic work shirt motif, each piece features a Tagua Nut button opening.
To compliment the tonal stitching construction, we decided on adding our signature OD+ color pop to the cuffs - with contrast Red and White stitching featured on each button hole. The button stitching was another element that we played with, eventually settling on a light gold color.
Nathan Spoor's stellar freehand artwork completes this OD+ collaboration piece with the 10th Year Anniversary label woven into each shirt.

The OD+SDA  "Matcha" Selvedge Jeans and Indigo Diamond Jacquard Shirt drops on 12/15 @ Midnight (JST)
