Two of Japan’s most notable denim, Oni and Tanuki, makers have come together as one for this special pair of jeans – the OTT1 in 20oz. Unsanforized Selvedge Denim. Years upon years of experience in the denim industry come to fruition in jeans like this, but you have to look close to capture it.
The real focus of this release is on the denim itself. It’s a rarer sight to see unsanforized denim offered in weights above 16oz., but Oni and Tanuki have gone above and beyond to create this heavyweight 20oz. “Secret” denim fabric, dyed using Tanuki’s natural indigo rope-dying technique. Oni has long been praised for their beautifully textured denim, rich with slubby texture and irregularities throughout that will surely prove to develop some amazing fades over time. The jeans are finished with Tanuki detailing and hardware, custom dual branded leather patch, and are offered in Tanuki’s modern tapered fit.
