Ooe Yofukuten Returns With A Vintage-Fading Unsanforized Denim
Japan’s Ooe Yofukuten and Oakland’s own Standard & Strange team up yet again for another exclusive, limited, and very special denim release.
The OA02XX 0918-E boasts a custom-milled 13.5oz. unsanforized selvedge denim in Ooe’s most popular cut, the OA02. Cut from the third generation of OAXX denim which notably won’t offer high-contrast fades, but instead will fade evenly to a nice vintage blue tone (which is just what the doctor ordered if you ask this reviewer).
Additional features include extra deep front pockets, an extra-long inseam, hidden rivets at the back pockets, iron top and fly buttons, and it’s all made in Japan by two sets of hands, which, to be frank, is the most compelling feature of all here. Ooe Yofukuten is known for their near-obsessive attention to detail and I’m sure this pair will be no different.
Avalable for $350 at Standard & Strange.
