Experiencing denim fatigue? Everything starting to feel kind of the same? Kind of… unremarkable? That can happen when you reach point in your denim journey. But, Phi Denim has a slightly outrageous take on the five-pocket jean that may interest you.
The PH101-19 differentiates itself by replacing one of the traditional rear pockets with a kimono pocket. The doubled-up cotton kimono fabric features a chrysanthemum pattern and is reinforced by laser-cut denim and bonding film.
Made in Okayama and limited to 19 pairs, these relaxed-tapered jeans are made from a 14 oz. unsanforized raw selvedge denim and come complete with copper rivets and a contrasting black denim coin pocket. Though the wide thigh and drastic taper are similar to many of the other such cuts that have been in vogue lately, this extremely limited edition jean, with its ingenious use of kimono fabric, ought to be just different enough to stand out.
Available for €270 (~$294 USD) at Phi Denim
