Japan blue's own line is all about the material! These beautiful pants are made from a unique indigo dyed cotton sashiko fabric woven in Japan.
Here's Japan Blue's version of one of the most iconic denim jackets ever made. The type 2 jacket was made by Levi's in the 50s and its simple design sure has proven to stand the test of time!
The type two jacket was introduced as an updated version of the traditional denim work jackets. Like them, it featured a pleated front and a square-shaped fit, but the "chinch" or "buckle back" that could be used to adjust the width of the jacket was replaced by adjusters located on each side of the hem.
A second front pocket was also added and the jacket and combined with a pair of five pocket jeans and a plain white t-shirt made up the iconic outfit for a new growing movement, the rebellious youth of the time. If you ever saw Elvis Presley wearing denim this is the jacket he was wearing. The fabric used in this jacket is a Japanese double indigo sashiko fabric. Traditionally this kind of fabric has been used to make sturdy and durable garments such as budo clothes and clothes for Japanese firemen, back in the days before nylon and technical fabrics. The beautiful texture of the fabric is achieved by a thicker thread that has bean woven in to the fabric, adding sturdiness and texture. With time and wear the fabric will come to life in a beautiful way and the texture will come to life even more as the fabric fades.
