This may look like a regular Type II jacket, sure. Y’know, two pockets, double pleated, square boxy fit, made from denim…But no, my fellow jeans enthusiasts and selvage seekers, this is anything but regular.
This is ONI. This is Secret Denim. Made with a low-tension weave 20 oz selvedge denim, ONI’s Secret Denim is just that – a secret. One of the forefathers of modern Japanese denim, Mr. Oishi San’s shuttle looms have been highly modified and adapted to produce a fabric so unique it can’t be imitated. A hallmark of Mr. Oishi San’s brand, Secret Denim has a unique make-up that no one knows, no matter how much you ask. Trust me, the multiple emails only resulted in a restraining order.
ONI is all about the heritage of denim but re-defined with a contemporary viewpoint and this Type II is a perfect example of that, with a few subtle adjustments like the addition of handwarmer pockets at the hip and enough texture to last a lifetime, this is modern heritage at its finest.
