Proud to show you my new collaboration ‘Short John Baby Jean’ with K.O.I. (Kings Of Indigo). As we both share the same passion for vintage denim, the heritage from America and the craftsmanship from Japan we wanted to create something unique, something special. This time for the little kids to give them the opportunity to look cool in blue. We started to make a collab logo which was the base, the next step was to find some vintage Japanese kimono’s for the repair patches. After we found these we went to the jean factory to give the jean a true vintage look, afterwards the kimono patches were added by hand to make it all complete. The result is really nice!

The ‘Short John Baby Jean’ is a classic 5 pocket and has some great features; limited edition hand stamped pocketflasher, selvage coin pocket, leather patch, K.O.I. fishbone bartacks, 12oz right handย Italian red line selvage denim, Japanese vintage kimono repairs and prison stripe pocketing. The jean is made in limited quantities. Thanks Tony Tonnaer and crew for this amazing collab! Very happy with the result!

To celebrate this collab with K.O.I. you can win one of these limited editon denims. How? Simple, just share this article on your Facebook timeline and we will pick two lucky bastards within 2 weeks. GO!
