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 JB0601 is the result of applying that customer feedback, and we are convinced this pair will flatter.
The rough cotton that the United States is known for, has been used by Japan Blue to create the denim fabric of the JB0201, JB0401 and JB0701 models, and most recently the brand new release for Fall '15, the JB0601. The tough American cotton allows for the stronger yarn, as well as giving it a nice deep indigo color when dyed. The Warp yarn is rope dyed in deep indigo blue, which will give a great fade with subtle contrast over time. The vintage shuttle loom on which the fabric is woven is sped up to tighten the weave, given the already rough and rugged textile a strong finish.
Applying this classic rope dyed JB fabric to the new silhouette is a perfect match, hitting all the right details we love. Besides the obvious details coming from a pair of this calibre, new additions by the JB team like switching out the classic blue inseam stitch for a more neutral gold color and the Indigo Dyed Sashiko pocket bags really elevate this pair. Another new addition by Japan Blue is the inclusion of custom antique gold rivets on this pair, as well as on the other "High Tapered" silhouette pair, the JB0625.
