Pure Blue Japan

Recommended Posts

It looks very nice but the fact it only has a 5 button placket is enough to deter me. Too gappy for my liking, it should definitely have 6 and perhaps even 7 in the largest sizes due to the extra length.

It's really nice... as is the new chambray

Hadn’t considered that Maynard, good eye. Curious if the larger sizes are patterned differently considering the additional length.

Finding myself very tempted by the new double natural indigo chambray work shirt from Pure Blue Japan.
Anyone want to talk me out of it? The mismatched pockets don't bother me.

I was too. The fabric is stunning. However, the measurements are super weird. Size 5 is very boxy with small shoulders in relation to the P2P, and size 6 has *huge* shoulders...

Well I went with a size 6, Okayama Denim confirmed that the size 6 has 6 buttons.
Plus I had a lot of points to use there (that I didn't realize I had) so it brought the price down a bit.
Will post photos once it arrives!

Got the shirt yesterday (ordered Wednesday from OD, delivered Sunday morning. DHL is crazy fast) and it's really nice.
The indigo has an almost dull/flat appearance from far away, but when you look at the fabric up close there's a lot more depth.
I'll get some fit pics up soon, it fits really nicely. It's a perfect summer shirt, really lightweight. Surprisingly the forearms are kind of snug, but everything else fits pretty loose.
Also the right pocket is huge, easily pockets my iPhone 11 Pro. It's got an open top as well as the button front closure.

Lads, what do you think of the XX-18oz-019-18oz Indigo x Black relaxed tapered?

I failed looking for black x black jeans for several reasons and ended up liking these ones very much. Theyr not black but close to and I like you don’t see any stitching or patch or shiny rivets.

anyone tried these?

thNk you

I don't have the indigo x black, but I do own the double black denim in the relaxed tapered fit.
They're nice, and the fit works well with the black denim. I should wear them more often.

Anyway, these are my other choices all FAILED (no size available or too high waist and short legs (32) and so and so

The ONI 622zr 20 oz BKBK was my first choice

Hi guys, this is my first time posting on this thread (been mostly over at the techwear/acronym thread).


But I have been a long time denim head, and I thought I like to share my thoughts about something from the PBJ Harajuku shop just two days ago.
I treated myself to their BKAI-013, which was really amazing to see in person. On the website and their instagram, the AIBK-013 looked really beautiful, but that BKAI-013 is truly special and one of a kind although I am quite skeptical about the color which is more grey than black which is why I had to go down to the shop to see it for myself. I had their AI-003 for a couple of years, and the texture of the fabric on the skin is identical, but the color of the BKAI is really somewhat like a Chinese/Japanese ink painting. It is not dark or deep, but it has that wabi-sabi quality to it that really attracts me. Hard to describe until you actually handled the fabric in person. There will be little to no fades on both the sumi and AI, according to the man attending to me in the store. When I asked which he will recommend (between BKAI and AIBK), he immediately replied it will be the BKAI. I can't wait to really break it in.

Since some of you spoke about the Oni, I thought I briefly mention it. I've wore it for two winters, and the Oni 20oz BKBK fabric is hell of a comfortable, the black is beginning to turn grey at high impact points, but its one of my favorite jeans at the moment (compared to my Samurai, Kuro and ironheart).
https://www.denimio.com/oni-902zr-bkbk-20oz-secret-black-denim-high-rise-relax-tapered-oni902zrbk.html


But I only wear it in colder weather, so for now BKAI will be my go to jeans this summer :)

I don’t like black fading jeans. 
I want black x black no fades but unlucky so far BUT I’m really I love with those PBJ XX black with indigo that fade into bluish colour.

i got Yamamoto regular black pants until I decide. I don’t really like ironheart blacks no fade for some reason but who knows tomorrow

^ they look great but the rise is too high I’m afraid. I would be size 31 waist and the thigh a bit tight. Do they stretch much? In any case that rise is long....maybe I’m old fashioned but I like mid low. I got this Momos 605 tapered and feel like a granda. Still wear them but high rise doesn’t work with me. That’s why I had a look at IH. 
Dawson look excellent company tho. 
I’m not in a rush anyway, but those XX are tempting

Picked these PBE-019 from the classifieds on the IH forum. 

 

Size 33, 1 size up from the PBJ XX-019-BB I have. Looking forward to giving these a few months of hard wear at work

@spitfiredealer good looking fit. their -19 cut is on my list. Looks like it might suite me well. The amount of taper to the hem is on the edge of what I prefer. Been waiting for the right denim for my taste

@mpukas thanks man. The taper is strong that's for sure. The size 32's I have are just a bit tight in the knee. These 33's feel much more comfortable. Little bit of room in the waist but I wear belt most of the time anyway so isn't really a problem.

Before committing to a looser fit with the TCB contest, I felt like wearing the opposite today.

      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

      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

    • By Danny @ Rivet & Hide
      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]
