Pure Blue Japan 14.5oz "Hippie Blue" BG-013 Denim (Slim Tapered Fit)

Size Guide

Return of the OG 1970s denim colourway!

At first glance, you can quickly tell these are some seriously unique looking denim. The inspiration comes from the 1970s when the most popular Levis began to be dyed 'BLUE' and was a classic mainstream look.

This denim is made in a very special manner. The warp is rope-dyed with genuine indigo which is rich in-depth and has a pale sky blue look in brand new condition. In addition to this genuine indigo dye, the warp is then over-dyed with silver grey sulphur. As for the weft, the cotton threads have been left in their natural, undyed state. The composition of the warp and wefts makes up for a tasteful 1970s vintage blue look. With time you'll see some strong contrast and slubby texture reveal itself.

The entire pair has been constructed using vintage machines and extra heavy cotton threads for better durability. The iron riveted buttons and copper rivets are practical for daily use and will keep the denim's shape over time. The leather patch on the rear is made of high density, vegetable-tanned sheepskin. With time the colour will develop a dark brown hue with some amazing patina.

We bet most of you (like us) have never tried this kind of unique 1970s Genunine Indigo blue colourway, we bet it will be an amazing journey! Enjoy with time!
