The highly anticipated High Tapered series by Japan Blue is one of the more exciting developments coming from the JB camp this year. The new fit was developed after hearing customer feedback - compared to the JB0412, the front rise was lengthened, the thigh width was increased by several centimeters, and a more drastic taper was applied to the hem, creating a highly aesthetically pleasing silhouette, while still being comfortable. So many times we have had people request a "lifter's cut". One that gave way for bigger thighs, and larger glutes, but did not sacrifice on the narrow hem. The JB0612 is the result of applying that customer feedback, and we are convinced this pair will flatter.
The fabric is custom produced for Japan Blue by the Collect Mill in Kojima, and the exceptionally slubby and hairy denim is full of character and will yield beautiful fading patterns with extended wear. Woven on a vintage shuttle loom and rope dyed in pure indigo, these jeans were made to fade.
Featuring details that we have come to expect, like the hidden selvedge coin pocket and rope dyed indigo fabric, while also retaining special unique details like gold antique rivets and a waistband leather patch made exclusively for the Japan Blue brand by the Tanner Goods people from Portland, Oregan.
