    Why are green cast denim less popular nowadays? Only see Oni and benzak mares them. Anyone of you here got alternative recommendations?
  3. This is a super fade collection. Can you post more fade pics and macro shots of the 2 faded nudies? Would love to see more of them. Also are they different models? One seems to be more green cast while the other is more vibrant vivid blue.

    “Hello there, sorry for late reply. Grey cast and red cast are very different. In denim industry, grey cast is most of the time a method of changing the color of denim with the use of chemicals and enzymes in the wash stage. It is done because it makes jeans look vintage worn. It is popular but not so popular in traditional Japan denim because people prefer no use of chemicals in wash. Some people call grey cast other things, like using weft that is grey in color with a loose weave warp on top To show a bit the grey, but that is not what denim manufacturers would consider grey cast and what you see more often being popular Our red cast is completely different because it is set in the indigo, dyeing process, so jean is not altered with chemicals in wash to make it look a certain way. The Ph balance of the indigo we use reacts with environment and oxidizes giving a bit of red feel. We combine this with a beige with slight red tint weft so when it fades gives more vintage feel Deep indigo denim is not considered cast. It is simply indigo warp and weft which makes them look very deep color blue. Some manufacturers dip the yarn one or twice more to make darker. Cannot dip too many times (some brands claim that, but is only marketing because too much indigo will make sticky texture for denim... many in the Tanuki team have tried it). You are right. For the repro jeans in general they are straight forward production techniques. They are not grey cast as manufacturer would see it, but when worn produce that same grey cast feel because that is exactly the type of effect that grey cast wash is trying to achieve. So it is more the other way around. Maybe some brands market them like that because grey cast is more popularized so easier to understand. Most brands are not manufacturers of fabrics but are expert in marketing. “ Some information I received from Tanuki which you all might find interesting when I asked them what’s the real definition of grey cast.
  11. Yeah iron heart is nice. The thing with 100% cotton jeans is they are more fragile than stretched denim if one is going to size down. And a slim tapered 100% cotton jeans will never be as comfy as skinny stretched jeans with elastane...that's why during our grandfathers time all of them wear boxy and baggy jeans!

    Well looks like he's just giving the bare minimum of commitment to keep his business running which I think it's really unprofessional.
