    Pure Blue Japan

    So I thought it might be good to start a new thread for Pure Blue Japan denim as a whole instead of having sepperate threads for each individual model. If anybody has anything they think I left out just pm me. Pure Blue Japan is a Japanese clothing company that specializes in jeans but also carries other types of clothing. Pure Blue Japan jeans are easily purchased through Blue in Green SoHo, or by using a proxy from Japan. No PBJ jeans have acruates right now, but instead will have a small embroidered indigo leaf on the left edge of the back right pocket. PBJ jeans are usually avalible in both raw and one-wash form, depending on where you are purchasing them from. Most of the jeans will have an inseam varying from 32-34.5 inches, so do not expect much stacking. Store info: 150-0001 
Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 3-31-20-102 
 TEL/03-3408-6644 FAX/03-3408-6826 PBJ Jean Models: Al-001: The denim for this jean is dyed with natural indigo, as opposed to synthetic which is used on most jeans. It is much heavier than the other pbj denim, coming in at 18.5 ounces. The fit is similar to that of the XX-03/6, meaning they are somewhat loose and vintage fitting. They are also very slubby. These will retain their color for longer than the other pbj's, but if you are patient and want a pair of jeans that will fade into something beautiful, this is what you want. They are avalible in even sizes from 26-42. http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/ai/5p/ http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=21&category_id=&manufacturer_id=9&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=28 XX-003: This jean has a vintage straight fit. It is made out of PBJ’s well known 14.5 ounce super slubby denim, which has an indigo warp and white weft. They are produced in sizes 25-34, and then 36, 38, 40, and 42. It is avalible in indigo only. http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/02_5p/xx003/ http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=23&category_id=&manufacturer_id=9&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=28 XX-004: This jean is a slim through the waist to knees, but then it widens out into a bootcut fit. It is made using the same slubby 14.5 ounce denim that is used in the XX-003 and XX-005 models. It flared out from the inside of the leg, which means the selvedge line is still intact. This is also avalible only in indigo. They are offered in sizes 28-34, and then 36. http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/02_5p/02xx004_shrunk_to_fit/ http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=41&category_id=&manufacturer_id=9&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=28 XX-005: Their most popular slim fit jean. It is slim like the XX-004 through the thigh to knee, but then remains as a straight fit from the knee to hem. This means that the knee is exactly the same size as the hem. This is also made out of the slubby denim. This is the only pair that is avalible in both black & indigo. They are made in sizes 28-34, and then 36. http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/02_5p/04xx005_shrunk_to_fit_black/ http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/02_5p/03xx005_shrunk_to_fit/ http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=45&category_id=&manufacturer_id=9&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=28 Here’s an example of headtowall’s pair after about a year or so of wear. http://www.superfuture.com/supertalk/showpost.php?p=280356&postcount=95 XX-006: This jean has a vintage fit, which is similar to that of the XX-03. It is, however, made of a different denim. This denim is lighter in color and weight than the denim that is used for the XX-003/4/5 models. First of all, it is 13.5 ounces instead of 14.5. Also, it uses alternating medium indigo and lightish medium indigo threads to give it an overall vintage & streaky look. It is also non-slubby. It ages into a more vintage looking denim. The denim is weaved using vintage, low-tech techniques. They are offered from size 25-34, and then 36, 38, 40, and 42. http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=2223&category_id=&manufacturer_id=9&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=28 http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/02_5p/05xx006_neo_vintage_shrunk_to/ XX-007: This is a very nice jean with the same slim fit as the XX-005. It is different, however, due to not only having an indigo warp, but also having an indigo weft. It created a very deep indigo denim which appears black in dim lighting, but is blue under sunlight. The denim itself is very slubby as well. The stitching on this jean is different from all of the others because of it being black, as opposed to yellow or orange. They are avalible in sizes 28-34, and then 36. http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/02_5p/06xx007deep_indigo_shrunk_to_f/ http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=2805&category_id=&manufacturer_id=9&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=28 XX-008: This jean is made of the same streaky denim as the XX-006. It is different, however, due to its slim, XX-005/7 fit. It is offered from size 28-34, and then 36. http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/02_5p/07xx008_neo_vintage_shrunk_to/ http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=3116&category_id=&manufacturer_id=9&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=28 XX-009: This is the vintage, looser fit version of the XX-007. It is made with the exact same slubby, dual indigo denim. It is offered in sizes 25-34, as well as 36, 38, 40, and 42. http://www.purebluejapan.jp/bottoms/02_5p/08xx009deep_indigo_shrunk_to_f/ BiG doesn’t actually sell this pair of jeans, so a proxy is the best bet if you need these. Also, thanks a lot BiG and PBJ for the information I used to create this thread.
