The soul of denim pants is originated by the selection of fabric. It decides what kind of character the denim carries. Union Dry Goods has the luck to meet the manufacturing staff and observe the flow of production in the Japan Blue Denim Group. This is one of the reports associated with the models JB0401 and JB0701. Lets see what Japan Blue says.
14.8oz Vintage Selvedge is used in JB0401 and JB0701.
U.S cotton is used in order to create a more rugged jeans.
By spinning rough American cotton, and increasing the strength of the yarn, nice texture will be produced as well as nice deep color.
Warp yarn = rope dyed to the core with indigo blue.
By doing this, the yarn ages to a very beautiful blue.
Fabric is woven on a vintage shuttle loom, the weave is as compact as possible. Raw cotton-spinning-dying-weaving: all steps needed to produce a rough and rugged textile.
Here are some official pictures on the effect of fading offered by Japan Blue. The model is JB0701 Straight Tight denim. It is at an age of 9 months’ use with washing twice.
The result has been astonishing. Look at those natural grew wrinkles and patterns, it can’t possibly happen in any other brands without years of use and the specialists of Japan Blue have made it true!
One other point we like to emphasizes on is the chain-stitching hemming work of these denim pants. They are all made as a standard by Union Special 43200G old machines and the roping effect is obvious and lovely. This is rather uncommon as most of the traditional “Big” brands have given up such tradition by using mass production in developing countries in Africa, Turkey, South East Asia.
Now, tell us you like it and you want it. Share our own feeling because every denim lover on earth would desire their jeans to be crafted in a way that no detail be obmitted and overlooked. Japan Blue creates a paragon in the industry.
