Pure Blue Japan 14oz GRE-019 'Greencast' Denim (Relaxed Tapered Fit)

Crashing back to the 1970’s with the groovy Greencast 14oz denim from PBJ!

Experts in both old and new indigo dying techniques, PBJ have drawn from the past to make a truly beautiful new Green-tinted future. The texture of the jeans, made, of course, on the classic PBJ vintage-machine looms is fairly slubby, combined with a neppy finish.

The warp of this pair has a subtle colour shift across the dye, creating a ‘blue-in-green’ look, giving it a truly unique sheen! With ongoing use the vertical texture will become stronger across the jeans, which will make the greenest pop even more. This means, over time, the pronounced green hue contrast will reveal itself as an amazing aurora light show!

Made to last, with vintage machine chain stitch and roped belt loop construction, these are built to get better with time. The riveted back pockets will also keep things secure for many years to come! The high-density veg-tanned sheepskin patch will gradually soften with a rich patina like Japanese whiskey. Silver coat iron buttons and copper rivets will oxidise and shine up with wear & tear!

This fit is great for those who like a tapered look but prefer a slightly higher rise with a more accommodating waist and thigh section.

Coming in at 14oz, these are perfect for lazing around in the sun, and really letting that green gleam shine through!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
