Pure Blue Japan have opted to apply a purple weft and warp yarns for the weave of this fabric, unlike most jeans which are woven with dyed warp yarns but undyed weft yarns. The outcome is a pure, deep indigo denim with a beautiful purple face. The texture of the denim itself is the slubby, rough fabric which has set Pure Blue Japan apart from the other brands we carry. The combination of using pure indigo dyed yarns for both the wefts and warps, produces a fabric whose color tone is deep with potential for a beautiful fade over extended use.
The modern Slim Tapered cut used on the XX-013, has been appropriated to this model. The fit is a true slim tapered with a tapered leg opening - a modern take on the slim straight silhouette. These are also available in both a Raw and One Wash fabric.
Like many of Pure Blue Japan's jeans, the fabric is of a low-tension shuttle loom, thus featuring the slubby and hairy feeling fabric common to Pure Blue Japan denim. The production of these jeans are constant through out every year in several different batches because the production ouput of the fabric is very limited.
The uniqueness of the slubby denim fabric, coupled with the small-scale production method, make this perfect fitting jean by Pure Blue Japan a true classic.
