Four Different Denim Fabrics

The limited-edition celebration collection contains four different styles. Three of them are pairs of jeans with different silhouettes; skinny, straight, classic straight, and tapered. Next to the jeans they also developed a classic Type 2 Trucker jacket.

All the items are made with four different fabrics in each garment. Each denim fabric has it’s aging (fading) because of the different origin, weight, material, and weave.

The four different fabrics are;

16.5oz Cote d’Ivoire Monster selvedge:
Cote d’Ivoire cotton denim is one of the representative fabrics of Japan Blue Jeans. These cotton species are no improved breed so that it says that “closest to original” cotton. They are cultivated without pesticides and harvested by hand. Low-tension woven, which they call “Monster denim”, gives the denim an uneven face.

・14.8oz Texas, US cotton selvedge:
Rough and firm denim which is a signature fabric to JBJ since its establishment.

・12.5oz African cotton selvedge:
Classic indigo blue warp × Brown cotton mixed weft. It can be worn in all seasons.

・12.5oz Stretch selvedge:
It looks 100% cotton denim however the stretch 5% denim is woven by vintage shuttle loom, GL9.

Details Of The Celebration Styles

The jeans styles are based on authentic five pockets. As said, they’re made of four different types of selvedge denim from the brand’s Circle. All the fabrics are woven in Okayama, Japan. The jeans have pocket bags made of original Jacquard. They have a zipper as closure, an inseam with Japan Blue Jeans signature blue color, and a celebration leather patch.

The denim jacket is based on a 1950s Trucker jacket, so with two chest pockets. There’re also two hand warmer side pockets attached, two hidden inside pockets, and a leather celebration patch too.
