Nothing that Pure Blue Japan makes is average. Take their 17.5 oz. Double Natural Indigo Type II, which has some of the most interesting contrasting natural indigo texture we’ve ever seen, and that’s all thanks to the meticulous dyeing methods that PBJ employed on this particular fabric. ‘Awa Masaai’ indigo takes a full year to mature before you begin to dye your threads with it, and after you’ve spent some time elbow deep in an indigo vat, you end up with some beautiful variety of blue hues in your cotton. Can hardly imagine the fades on this one, but if PBJ’s usual denim efforts are an indicator, then this is sure to age quickly and interestingly.
This modified Type II jacket is more wearable than most Type IIs, thanks to the addition of welted slash pockets, the kind that you’d normally find on modified Type IIIs. More traditional Type II details include two flap pockets on the chest, a pleated front placket, reinforced back and chest yoke, and button-adjusting cuffs and sides.
