Denimhead blogger Jonathan Lukacjek, better known as Bandanna Almanac has teamed up with Japanese husband/wife brand Ooe-Yofukuten to re-create a pair of overalls from the brand’s archives (previously rendered in a natural cotton/linen blend) in — what else? — denim.
The vintage workwear-inspired pants are made with a 10oz. selvedge denim with a grey warp, and are filled with special details. The legs are sewn with only an inseam (no outseam), and one-piece fly construction. Drawing specifically from the apparel and on-the-job needs of sign and set painters, the pants feature five front pockets that are extra-deep, to account for the long-handled paint brushes that creative laborers would use. The cinch at the back waist, reinforced knee panels, high rise, darted waist, and fairly roomy leg all allow for high functionality, whether you’re doing up a billboard or flipping tricks on your board.
Of course, to really do the product name justice, you’ll need to fasten some suspenders to those overall buttons. Suspenders or no, the jeans are available via Etsy for 36,000 JPY (~$323USD), and only thirty pairs will be made.
