Pure Blue Japan

Recommended Posts

Why would you wash your jeans in water that hot?  90C = 192F  That's crazy hot.  Were you trying to get them to shrink a large amount?

I turned down the temp on my hot water heater,

 

160* F is hot enough to steep green tea

If you're referring to me, it was an accident, read that the temp was 30C

June 5th is the final day that PBJ products will be available on OkayamaDenim.com.
We have come to terms with the fact that the new PBJ pricing does not fit our business model regardless of how hard we've tried. It just doesn't correlate well with the way the rest of our product and relative pricing is structured,
which brings us to this decision.
We will remove Pure Blue Japan items while we renegotiate our contract with the brand.
We sincerely appreciate all the support you guys have given us, as we’ve grown with the brand over the years.
We hope to be back up and running with the Slub Masters in the near future.

Just got in a pair of raw PBJ XX-013 from the Okayama sale. They fit perfectly in the waist pre-soak. 

I have been reading that PBJ's will stretch quite a bit, will they stretch back out in the waist if I can't button them up post soak? 

Or what are some techniques used to stretch the waist out?

Whilst drying jam something in the waist that keeps it under tension like a solid wooden hanger for example.

Most jeans will stretch back to raw in the waist

My pair of xx-003 at 6 months after yet another wash. Pic taken outside and has a bit more contrast and saturation but pretty close.

^ love the color on those mrman

 

After an initial soak, my XX-013's are a little snug in the waste but should be spot on after they stretch a bit! Thanks for all the great sizing info in this thread, made my online purchase a breeze. Excited to get some good wear in on this pair.

Interested on the xx-19 but confused on the thigh measurement. On size 34 pair,  Blueowl has it at 12.75" and 13.5" on RnH.

270 days. I'm going to wash this jeans a third wash tomorrow. I think I should save up some money to buy a proper DSLR camera because taking photos with Iphone SE camera is very tedious especially when I'm trying to keep the color as accurate as possible.

What happened to the patch? In some pics you can see it, in some it's missing

yup I sewed it back on. I removed it prior to doing hot machine wash as it is bad for the leather.

Here is an album I updated on reddit that shows the evolution of my pair of XX-005 after 3 years. APC NS are also included.

Since I got help on this forum in the past I thought I'd post it here too: http://imgur.com/a/JHuOX

Enjoy !

Anyone - I'm looking for the short sleeve version of the patchwork indigo shirt. The product # is SS-2184. If anyone would know where to find one in size 4, I'd be very thankful...

More repairs...clearly on the distressed side now. Still love the texture.

PBJ just posted these chinos to their Instagram and they look really nice. Hope they’re not too incredibly tapered, but not getting my hopes up yet since they’re based on the XX-019.
