Oni’s latest made-in-Japan jean will be a dream come true for some denim connoisseurs who’ve been chomping at the bit to not only pick up a fresh pair of jeans with super slubby, loosely woven denim, but a slubby pair with single-needle construction to boot. Single needle construction is a truly rare bird nowadays as the vast majority of jeans have been bar tacked to strengthen the stress points for decades now.
In lieu of bar tacks, the normal stress points (belt loops, back pockets, and crotch) are stitched with a back-and-forth zig-zag pattern. This process is inherently more time-consuming and, as such, is an uncommon sight. They’ve been given a wash for softness, has hand-felled seams and, just for Blue in Green, have been sewn with plain back pockets.
Available for $275 at Blue in Green.
