The One Piece of Rock brand relies on support from the skilled craftsmen of Japan’s denim mecca in Kojima, Okayama. They create authentic denim styles based on the U.S. influences. The spirit of American good ol’ days renewed with a contemporary eye. The One Piece of Rock brand was started by Yoshiaki Konaka which has a preference for vintage denim workwear.

Today I want to highlight 2 classic One Piece of Rock items which are inspired by World War 2 pieces: Denim Jacket and a pair of Jeans.

The One Piece of Rock denim jacket, much like denim pants of this period, had a simplified design due to the wartime production restriction. The number of buttons was reduced from five down to four and the pocket flap was removed. This model was made during the war for use among the general U.S. population. The same story is behind the One Piece of Rock jeans, also called “WWII Model”, which is a simplified piece reflecting the wartime production restrictions. Both styles are very popular among denimheads. Check both items here below. And see also the film to see and learn more about One Piece of Rock.
