Fans of the original Osaka 5 member, Studio D’artisan, will be excited to learn of their most recent offering, the D1750 Deck Crew Jean, a slim tapered model made from a once-washed Okayama denim. As the faithful would expect, this pair falls in line with the brand’s affinity to tastefully experiment with denim, fit, and features, but never to overly novel ends.
The D1750 is made from a respectable 14oz. denim with indigo warp and a rarely-seen grey weft. Aside from the denim itself, the jean sets itself apart with a selvedge cinch-back fastener — not so common to slimmer fitting jeans — as well as its heavyweight, pure indigo back yoke liner and pocket bags. Additional details include a selvedge button fly complete with original Studio D’artison buttons, selvedge fifth coin pocket detail, an 1/8th inch-thick suede waistband patch, SDA-original pocket stitching, and triple needle construction.
And they’re available at Denimio for $239.
