An original member of the Osaka 5, Studio d’Artisan is honoring its four decades in the denim biz with two unique jeans, each with their own off-the-wall weft.
These two new jeans come in the same cut, a relaxed taper that offers a bit more room in the top block, but tapers down steeply, forming a very slim leg and narrow hem opening. However, the exciting element of this special release is not the silhouette, but the fabric itself.The G3 series is made on the iconic Toyoda looms that were among the first used to create selvedge denim in Japan 50 years ago. The looms make for a delightful 14 oz. fabric with more than enough character to satisfy a modern audience whilst flaunting the toughness of a pair of vintage work pants.
For a little added limited edition pizzazz; one jean is dyed with cherry blossom to give the weft a delicate mauve hue, and the other uses chestnut extract to give its weft a dark brown tone. Neither of these wefts overwhelm these otherwise classic pair of five-pocket jeans.
SDA has brought their best cards to the table for this celebration of their 40 year tenure as one of Japan’s most esteemed denim labels. Blackened brass buttons on the fly, engraved copper rivets, rolled and tucked belt loops, and even a branded Furoshiki wrap to store your new jeans in.
