These are made of Sugar Cane’s 14oz “Hawaii” denim and finished with all the classic Mister Freedom Lot 64 details, which are far too many to list here.

    New Seuvas Flannels & Moleskin Shirts We've got two new Seuvas shirts and a restock of both of their chambray shirts this week. One of our favorite shirt brands has ventured into the world of flannels and they’ve just dropped their second release. Seuvas come through with a shirt made of an original selvedge flannel complete with double-needle construction, gusseted side seams, and their signature single Amakusa pottery stone button as the only external branding. It’s no surprise that Seuvas is capable of producing such nice flannels considering all textiles and even the sewing is done in-house in their own factory in Okayama, Japan. As part of Suevas’ new summer line they’ve also produced a shirt made of a beautiful 100% cotton moleskin fabric. This shirt also comes with their signature construction and ceramic button branding. Both of these shirts along with a full restock of both of their chambray shirts can be found at all stores now. Shop Seuvas Online

    What a find! Can't believe those are from 13 years ago.. I still love that Toyo "Sun Stripe" fabric we used for the pocket bags and the super narrow busted outseam.

    Construction is similar but the new t-shirts are made of a long staple cotton and feel much softer and more "refined".

    My answer here was in response to @beautiful_FrEaK 's "Is the Awa-Ai SC41201 really made from natural indigo?" The jacket and jeans from this capsule we're carrying have a warp yarn which is made of 80% natural indigo (AWA-AI) and 20% synthetic. There is a second part to this capsule (which we're not carrying) which is 100% natural indigo but it's not yarn dyed, both the jeans and jacket are garment dyed in natural indigo and they're priced accordingly (about $800 USD each).

    Yes, it's really made of natural indigo.

    Definitely not, the Detroit fit isn't even considered a very slim fit. The Detroit is more like a straight leg jean with a medium rise; the upper leg is slightly slimmed down and it has a very small bit of taper.

We have a pair of jeans, a denim jacket, and two summer-weight long sleeve shirts. All four garments are made using a combination of different indigo dying techniques and utilize both cotton and sugar cane fiber yarns on the jeans and jacket. All four of these items can be found in limited numbers at all of our stores. Shop Sugar Cane Online

    In terms of sewing tolerances and ability to reproduce exact stitch styles Japan wins on every count. Not to mention if things like wide hem-lines (due to incorrect folding attachments) or busted outseams which are pulled out too far drive you crazy then you'll probably want to stick to jeans which are made in Japan.

    I feel that MiUSA and MiJ construction quality have very little in common. From the machines being used at the factories to the tolerances, there is a fairly different look and feel between jeans sewn in a (good) Japanese factory and a (very good) American one.
