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.
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.
