Pure Blue Japan

Recommended Posts

Because Pure Blue Japan have imposed international pricing. Okayama Denim is aimed at the international market, thus for them to keep the PBJ account, they had to price it at the international price.

If you physically go to a Japanese store and buy PBJ, you will pay the japanese price.

I wish PBJ jeans weren’t all so damn tapered. The new black/black XX-019 looks great but they would look terrible on me.  I need that denim in the XX-005/009 cut!

Has anybody tried the PBE-019, are there are fade pics? Pure Blue Japan - Relaxed Tapered (Beige Tinted Warp)

This is the only pair in a High Rise/Tapered fit in stock with Okayama store at the moment & I want to use the store credit. Tired of waiting for the Japan Blue stock to come in.

I am not sure how the Beige tint looks in real life, hence the question.

The left side is the regular 14oz that comes in xx003, xx05, xx013 cutting. The core of the warp yarn is white so it will fade into a clean blue color. The right side is the pbe-019 and the core of the warp yarn is beige color, so it will fade into a "dirty" blue color.

hey guys, it's been a while since the raw demin game. I'm interested in starting again. What are some popular brands? I like lightweight and slim tapered. Well it doesnt matter since I',m going to taper them.

BIG went through a change?

The pbe-019 denim looks great in that shot above. Wish it was made in different fits though. 

It’s a great fit, very hard to find a rise close to 13 inches and yet not look like “dad jeans”. Do look into it.

Is anybody here picking up the PBJ 20th anniversary jeans from Okayama? I am unable to appreciate the double indigo yet so passed it for regular indigo.

I have no ass and small legs. "Relaxed" and high rise jeans are not my friend. 

I basically need a lower rise and slimmer thigh even on my straight fits to look ok on me. I've grown tired of the carrot type jeans as well. Granted I've never even looked at the measurements for these simply going off the name.

It is only available in the relaxed tapered fit right now. No plans to use in any other fit at the moment.

The X019 in the signature 14oz, is that one wash or raw? Or available in both?

Okayama has both one wash and raw but most sizes are out of stock till later this week as they are busy launching PBJ 20th anniversary collection. The X019 is readily available in the 20th anniversary double indigo at $275.

Rivetandhide has the raw version.

Wow, the left pair looks amazing.

My thoughts as well. Seems like a denim that could take a lot of washes and age nicely.

My thoughts on Oni is they have longer slubs texture up to 1-2cm whereas pbj slubs texture are shorter (2-3mm) and shape like a mini rice. And Oni fade a lot faster than pbj which is something I don’t really like. Denim that fade too fast just don’t get the brighter brilliance vibrance blue that I like. Fast fading denim will only get electric blue fading but only for a short while... 

from the pic above you can see my N&F okayama spirit 1, it’s the same denim Oni used last time. It faded a lot more than my pbj despite me wearing them less frequent... and imo the faded blue color is just not as nice as my PBJ. Anyway is just a matter of personal taste and preference, there are many on people on Instagram commented they preferred the faded color of my N&F more than my PBJ.

I get where you are coming from on the Oni fades. 

I like my XX pair, the 16oz feels much more substantial and better constructed than the 14oz pairs. The fit is spot on for me ( excl the rise a touch low) and really comfy, but I'm not really sold on how they are fading. They get really light pretty quickly.

Thanks! I'm debating between the two since I believe the the most popular ones right now. Any idea where I can get it in the US? PBJ or Oni? The was a post earlier on the difference between the yarn. I like the blue and white much better. The NF has a bit of a dirty yellow color to it from what I'm seeing

The NF is actually clean white rather than yellow. But that area lost most of its indigo so it appear to be dirty yellow from far under most lightings. Up close it’s actually clean white. You can get PBJ online from SelfEdge, Blue Owl Workshop, Rivet & Hide (UK) and Okayama Denim (Japan). As to your question PBJ or Oni? In PBJ forum people definitely recommend PBJ lol... likewise in Oni forum.

Haha true, but I'm sure PBJ are not the only jeans everyone is carrying, so it's nice to get a opinion. What are the popular models now? I know Samurai got in trouble...

You should probably ask in the same questions thread. People who are interested in other brands and could recommend choices other than PBJ might not be checking PBJ thread.

  •  

I would say choosing PBJ/ONI you should consider also fit: I had 2 PBJ that I sold because of the fit and I did not buy any ONI because they almost never do anything in the fit I would like (although I have ONI jacket). Strike Gold have straight fit..

      Cleaning out my closet for stuff I don't get to wear as often!  Willing to accept offers.
      1. Himel Bros. Brimaco Raider Cafe Racer - $1750 plus shipping
      This jacket is absolutely insane. Tagged size 36, fits like S. Made with 100% genuine Shinki tea-core horsehide that will gradually fade from deep black to a gorgeous brown as it ages. Weighs in at around 5 pounds and is built to take an absolute beating. Deadstock Lightning zippers, bi-swing back, and of course the absolutely unparalleled quality that David Himel is known for. If you know leather jackets, then you'll know that this is the creme de la creme. Retails for $2450.
      Worn lightly and still has plenty of breaking in left to do. It's a shame that I have to sell this as it's just slightly too small for me. Would totally be interested in trading for another leather jacket of similar quality in a larger size.
      Description from Himel's website: 
      "The Raider jacket is an homage to one of the greatest café racer jackets ever made. Brimaco or British Mfg. Co of Montreal, Canada designed this iconic jacket in the 1950's after attending motorcycle races on the Isle of Man. The jacket has a distinctive British feel with a longer straighter torso and a simple clean back with bi-swing expansion gussets and a long chinstrap. We own so many originals of this great design that it barely required any tweaking, and this model uses our limited supply of original 1950's and 1960's Lightning zippers."
      MEASUREMENTS: 
      P2P: 20" 
      Shoulders: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.5" 
      Back length: 26.5" 
      Front length: 24"

      2. The Real McCoy's M-422A Flight Jacket - $1150 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/mcslLUs7SuOKnR9V2Rdf[/img]
      Absolutely stunning M-422A flight jacket from The Real McCoy's New Zealand. If you know The Real McCoy's, then you'll know that everything they make is of the highest standards, from the material to the construction. This jacket is made with the finest goatskin and mouton fur and is built just impeccably. Faithful to the original details, but superiorly made.
      Measurements: 
      P2P: 21" 
      Shoulder: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.75" 
      Length: 25.75"
      3. Needles/Nepenthes (Engineered Garments) Horween Shell Engineer Boots, resoled by Brian the Bootmaker - $1500 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/ePB7rWcfRrKeG75LT7SO[/img]
      Needles (Engineered Garments) Engineer Boots made with genuine Color No. 8 Horween Shell Cordovan in tag size 9UK. I'd say they fit pretty TTS, although there is plenty of room for one to wear thicker socks.
      These were picked up from the Nepenthes shop located in New York City. Needles is the sister company of Engineered Garments (both owned by Nepenthes). This pair has also been re-soled by Brian the Bootmaker (Role Club) and converted to his signature hand-welt. They're really fresh too - worn under 10 times. Truly an amazing pair of boots. Shell cordovan engineer boots are pretty hard to come by, especially ones made with Horween (most other shell engineer boots are made with Shinki cordovan).
      4. The Flat Head 6002W Type II Jacket - $350 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:90/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/RINrxGgSFazJbCpUp1cI[/img]
      Classic Type II jacket by The Flat Head in their Pioneer denim. Gently worn, practically new. Retails for over $500 at Self Edge.
      Size: 40 (no such thing as S/M/L) 
      Front Length: 24.5 
      Arm Length: 34 
      Shoulder: 18.5 
      Pit to pit: 20.5
      5. Evisu No. 2 Type I Jacket - $130 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/LrCQ4QAiTzavNJhhb1X6[/img]
      Pretty sweet Type I jacket by Evisu. Sick details all over, well worn and faded.
      Tagged size 40 fits S-M. See measurements below: 
      pit to pit 21.5 inches 
      opening 19 inches 
      sleeve 24.75 inches 
      overall length 23 inches 
      shoulders 18.5 inches
      6. Iron Heart Indigo-dyed Waffle Work Shirt (IHSH-96) - $225 plus shipping

      Worn a handful of times, not really my style. No damage and in excellent condition. Fits excellent as either TTS or slightly tight as it's a slim fit with a hint of stretch due to the waffles knit pattern, though it's 100% cotton. Shirt is sold out in this size last I checked.
      Beautiful indigo dyed waffle fabric that we think will age amazingly 
      Black cat's-eye buttons 
      Chain stitch run-off 
      Triple needle-stitch construction using self coloured needle and red bobbin threads 
      All felled seam construction 
      Rinsed, so there should be no appreciable shrinkage 
      Model Sam wears a Medium, Giles wears X-Large in this shirt (rather than his normal Large)
      Measurements direct from IH: 
      Shoulders    17.2 
      Length 27.8 
      PtP    21.5

      Hey all,

      Welcome to Rivet & Hide. We are a London based premium raw denim store starting life online with plans afoot for a bricks and mortar home in the future.

      We offer free shipping worldwide and our UPS account will ensure a fast and reliable delivery around the world.

      I have been a SuFu member for years sharing thoughts, ideas and countless questions about denim and clothes that are made with heart and soul. This inspired me to set up and finally bring Rivet & Hide to life.

      Some of the brands will be familiar to you but part of the concept is to bring new and less well known denim producers into the sphere and we have worked hard to get that balance right.

      It has been a lot of fun meeting many of the people behind the brands and seeing their skills at work. We have clocked up many miles visiting them around the world making new friends along the way. A shorter trip through the Welsh valleys to beautiful Cardigan Bay to meet the Hiut Denim guys was just as rewarding. A special thanks for all the help and support from Giles & Paula at Ironheart UK and Anders Helseth of Steel Feather.

      We struck gold with a Union Special 43200g which was sourced from California. It’s in mint condition and dates back to 1950. Any hemming requirements can be consummately fulfilled.

      We have measured all our stock individually. We have not relied on suppliers or anyone else’s measurements. Our HOW WE MEASURE guide is based on BiG (thank you) with the addition of a hip measurement.

      We offer a 28 day returns policy with full refunds. Shipping included.

      The launch brands are:

      Railcar Fine Goods
      Steel Feather
      Flat Head
      Real Japan Blues
      Hiut denim co
      Nudie jeans
      Obbi Good Label.

      As we go into the Autumn we will be adding to our launch stock including some more great shirts from The Flat Head’s Winter collection, and introducing you to a new Japanese brand.

      We are planning a launch party hosted by our friends at Kaffeine, Great Titchfield Street, in Central London in the Autumn and will give you the heads up closer to the time. You will be more than welcome to join us.

      Feel free to ask any questions here or contact us at [email protected] or [email protected]
