As of late Indonesia has been carving out quite a nice niche in the dry denim scene. Having done their homework and learning to emulate the greats of denim they have begun to produce some quality pieces and brands of their own. So for this week, coming all the way from Jakarta, Indonesia we bring you Oldblue Co.
Old Blue Co. designed the Work Pants Type II Natural x Natural Indigo with the toughest of workers in mind, so beware, as these jeans are not for the faint at heart. Drawing inspiration from its predecessor, the Type I, the company improved upon the design to produce the Type II.
The jeans are constructed of 13.5 oz sanfordized Indian Selvedge Denim that uses naturally dyed indigo yarn on both the warp and weft weaves, (as opposed to natural or white on the weft) producing a dark and lasting indigo hue. Given the indigo on indigo, the jeans will break in and fade in way that is unique to most other jeans.
The Oldblue Co. Work Pants Type II is a standard 5 Pocket jean with some added features. For a start, the front left and back right pockets come equipped with buttoned flaps to keep all of your belongings safely stowed, plus each button is made from imported water buffalo horn.
Oldblue Co. have also channeled the beginning days of denim by placing a cinch strap with a metal buckle on the back of the pant. Also used is a vintage Talon zipper imported from the US that draws influence from the initial Levi’s designs.
It seems that Oldblue Co. really took the time to make sure that these jeans are tough enough to work just as hard as you do when you wear them. Be sure to check out the rest of the Oldblue Co. line.
