Pure Blue Japan XX-22oz-013 Slim Tapered Jean

Looking for a project? Pure Blue Japan has the jeans to occupy your time. The XX-22oz-013 is made with a hefty 22oz. selvedge denim that’ll require some real commitment to break in. On top of that, since these jeans are unsanforized, they’ll be a bit shape-shifty at the beginning, gaining density and shrinking in all directions.

And the journey to fade-dom will be all the more exciting thanks to the slubby texture that’s been chattered into the fabric on a vintage Toyoda loom. With a slim tapered fit, be prepared for some stiff legs at the outset, but the tidy silhouette will keep things looking neat — even as all the other aspects of your jeans scream Fade of the Day.

Reliable PBJ details include a button fly with iron buttons, hidden rivets, chain stitching on the waist and hem, and, of course, a supple deerskin patch.

Your new hobby will set you back $390. Available from Rivet and Hide.
