What happens when you mix a brand’s best-selling silhouette with its original, signature denim? You get a successful product, obviously. What did you expect? Something out of the ordinary? Come on.
Meet the Pure Blue Japan XX-019. Weighing in at a respectable 14 oz., the brand’s relaxed tapered jean is currently the most popular style offered in the Pure Blue Japan denim arsenal – and for good reason. This cut features a high rise and a generous thigh which tapers beautifully from the knee down for a very well-balanced silhouette — well-suited to a vast array of body types. ‘Lifter’ denim, as it’s become affectionately known within the community, has gained popularity in recent years as men and women around continue to realize the importance of not skipping leg day. If you’ve recently had the epiphany, look no further.
Woven in Okayama – the denim capital of the world – on old school, low tension looms, this PBJ denim has a pronounced slubby texture with a hint of hairiness and a pinch of uneven, irregularity; a harmonious combination if you ask me.
PBJ hasn’t skimped on the details with this one, adding a herringbone twill pocket lining, an iron button fly, hidden rivets, a chain stitched hem and waistband, a deerskin leather patch, and the classic, unmistakable embroidered leaf emblem on the back pocket.
