Super "Denim" is a new project launched by Sugar Cane and a well known Japanese vintage denim collector, Mr. Shigeki Wakita. Under his supervision, Sugar Cane has developed new fabrics, trims, and patterns based on the rare-to find dead stock vintage garments from Mr. Wakita's collection. The goal of the project was to produce perfect duplications of the historically, original vintage garments by faithfully replicating all details such as war-time iron buckles, imperfect sewing stitches, and rough and uneven stitch counts. Simply to recreate them exactly as they looked in the past.

Sloppy sewing is in itself is no art, but recreating the sloppiness in a correct way and doing it in a whole production is much more difficult, on the other hand, and we can't say anything other than that we are very impressed with how well Sugar Cane has managed to accomplish this on these garments.

For several decades, Japanese jeans makers have recreated American garments better than the originals, still paying tribute to the vibrancy that hides in old jeans garments. In this collection, Sugar Cane has gone all the way and shows us that when these jeans was made in the the middle of the last century you didn't care too much about perfection, it was after all workwear garments.

This 1943 Denim Blouse is a complete duplication of Mr. Yakiya's vintage denim jacket made in the year of 1943. As the war progressed, the US government had imposed strict restriction on the materials that the manufactures and factories used for their denim jackets. The number of front button was reduced to 4 pcs from 5. Their original embossed metal button was replaced by the commonly used laurel leaf button. The pocket flap was removed. Rough sewing and trimming prove that the jackets had to be completed hastily by unskilled sewers during the war. These changes, however, are now regarded as unique, distinctive and even charming details seen only on this war time garments

The detail on the back seen on larger size than 42 is known as "T-Back" and refers to the seam in the center of the back. This is because the denim fabric width was not wide enough for back panel, so it had to be sewn together, a neat detail find on vintage denim jackets in larger sizes.

Dan is 188 cm tall, weighs 84 kilos and wears size 42.
