Rewinding back time to 2019, the Slub Masters' "SLB" fabric is the story of a Phoenix rising from the ashes. PBJ's OG XX-18oz. Selvedge Denim from 2016 was one of the most textured and slub-rich fabrics to hit the floor here at OD. Regrettably, a catastrophic typhoon in 2018 affected Okayama enormously, with many factories bearing the brunt of the flooding that occurred. Many vintage machines were unfortunately lost forever, meaning that the production capability for many of these special fabrics was washed away with the typhoon. Heading back to the drawing board, PBJ sought to faithfully recreate the heavyweight and slubby fabric that Denimheads around the world have come to love. The SLB series which first launched in 2019, retains many of these elements, thanks to the unique yarn composition, while at a slightly lower 16.5oz. weight.
