UES Denim releases its indigo selvedge flannel in a sashiko wabash design in a nod to both Japanese textile heritage and vintage work wear design. The fabric has been rope-dyed indigo. This is a slim fit without being overly so. The flannel features acorn shaped pockets and corozo nut buttons.

Stevenson Overall constantly pushes the boundaries in style and construction. The "Bounty Hunter" is  100% cotton, dobby loomed fabric and has been woven with an intense texture reminiscent of vintage Mexican blankets. Sand-casted concho buttons and copper riveted hand pockets to the front complete this traditional yet thoroughly modern design.


The Stevenson Roebuck moleskin coat is another great example of bringing the country to the city. Impeccably cut, the custom fabric is soft yet windproof. It is blanket lined for warmth and comfort with a wool pile boa  collar and corduroy inner cuffs and pocket flaps. The fabric has the feel of soft suede.


Also in are the Jackson 320 slim tapered jeans based on the 727 La Jolla fit but using a 13.5 oz sanforized selvedge denim.

the decorative pocket stitch work serves the purpose of reinforcing all pocket openings.

3sixteen shows once again that they have truly mastered the art of smart, casual, streetwear with the 2016 release of the Stadium Jacket.  The fabric of the indigo cotton twill STJ is subtly ridged horizontally which gives a 3D depth and texture to the indigo tone and makes this an extremely tactile item. Inside is more of the same with a luxurious quilted lining - this also carries through to the side handwarmer pockets. Based on their previous waxed cotton stadium jackets, the fit is immaculate.


We have  also restocked the black waxed canvas STJs. Like the new indigo version this has a 2 way-pull zipper.

The black Waxed Flesh service boot from Viberg is a unique build for Rivet & Hide on the 2030 last and keeping the toe cap plain. 
This roughout leather develops an incredible patina with scuffing over time. Alternatively, some wearers will re-wax the boots to restore them to pristine condition. The waxed leather makes the boots very water resistant and they also come with a Dainite rubber sole.

We only ever buy what we love ourselves for the store which is why our inventory is so focussed. We would never choose anything just to fill a gap. There are some pieces, however, that we simply fall in love with and that's what happened in Nagano, home and HQ of The Flat Head in the "Alps of Japan" back in May of this year.


The Native Blanket Boa Jacket is so strong in many ways; style, fabric and of course "The Flat Head Way" construction details. The blanket outer shell is custom woven with a native pattern. The jacket has a thinsulate filling for warmth without the need for a bulky alternative and then lined with rayon (traditionally used on Hawaiian shirts from the 1950s) The faux sheepskin shearling boa collar is exquisitely soft. The lower hem, cuffs and pockets are trimmed with black leather.

Staying native it was time to introduce  a classic Flat Head Native Western shirt. 100% cotton and slim fitting. The fabric is full of texture due to the intricate weave and the shirt uses mother of pearl snaps. The size offerings now go up to  a 48.(XXL)

Just in time for Christmas, Pure Blue Japan has delivered two versions of the classic type 2 denim jacket and some new jeans.

The KS-103-WID is a 16 oz deep indigo jean. The KS is knubbed selvedge which refers to the slubby texture of the irregular weave. The depth of indigo is achieved by rope dyeing the yarns in a process known as ‘kasuri’ or ‘grazing’ using various shades of indigo, hence the ‘ID’ in the description, which stands for Irregular Dye. These are available in the slim tapered 013 cut and will offer a high contrasting, unique fade potential.











Shop Pure Blue Japan KS-013-WID Slim Tapered Jeans


The new PBJ 18 oz. denim jacket uses the same super slubby denim as the jeans in the same weight. 
One difference is that this fabric has been sanforized to enable an easier fitting right off the bat. PBJ uses its unrivalled know-how to manage this process without losing any of the fabric's renowned character. The denim is rope dyed indigo and the jacket features riveted pockets, iron buttons and a deerskin leather patch.








Shop Pure Blue Japan 18 oz. Denim Jacket


Completing the new triumvirate is a welcome restock of the Deep Indigo Denim Jacket. All the detailing is exactly the same as on the 18oz version. However, this is in a 13 oz. fabric with both indigo warp and weft yarns which provide an impressively intense hue.








Shop Pure Blue Japan Deep Indigo Denim Jacket

The 17 oz selvedge denim by Iron Heart which uses organic cotton and natural indigo is now available in a Type 3 trucker jacket.

The sleeves and body are slightly longer than your average Type 3. The jacket has hand-warming pockets which can be used internally for storing wallets and phones etc. The jacket also features tonal constructional stitching for a more minimalist look. The denim is unsanforized but one-washed. It will shrink a further 0.5" on the chest and in both body and sleeve length.

3sixteen combines both a winning fit with  a great fabric to produce the Black Selvedge Chino. The cut allows for room on the thigh without being overly loose with a gradual taper to the hem resulting in a sharp and modern straight tapered silhouette.

We are really excited to end 2016 by introducing a new and in our opinion very exciting brand to the store.

Nine Lives is, in their own words, "a symphony of furiously dedicated craftsmen, all playing something weird and feral."
The brand places Japanese fabrics and dye-stuffs, from exclusive jacquard weaves to natural indigo sashiko, in dialogue with contemporary patterning, making pieces that are elegant and not just a little dark.

Made in Japan, Nine Lives calls on worldwide talent, whether it's the sources of their cotton or the tannery for their yak leather. The Japanese word "kodawari", meaning something like obsessive passion and attention to detail, is clear here...even in their tags, with the brand lettering redolent of the New York punk scene and framed in a golden rectangle.

With more pieces arriving in 2017 we launch this brand with the exquisitely tailored Leather and Sashiko Varsity Jackets.




To introduce to you the rather unique mindset that belongs to the brand ‘Nine Lives’, we have chosen something of a showstopper.

A stadium jacket like no other, this piece sees the union between a hand-dyed indigo sashiko fabric body, pigment-dyed leather arms and thick ribbed collar, (zipped) cuffs and hem. As always with a product of this calibre, it’s not just the immediately obvious that elevates this above your everyday offerings. Closer inspection reveals refinements such as the pockets, where the leather dives deep into the inside as opposed to being merely ‘trimming’, shoulder seams that flow perfectly into the arm, following the natural shape of your form and buttons where the centre ‘fills in’ upon closure.

Uncommon materials and fabrics are the norm here - the quilted lining contains a taffeta thinsulate. This holds its shape better and longer than other materials and has the benefit of providing warmth without excess bulk.
Nine lives has an unusual, interesting – indeed intriguing -  story and persona that appeals right from the start and demands further investigation. We feel that these jackets are a fine example of this and look forward to sharing the voyage of discovery with you. Hold on tight…

Nice jackets.

Just to understand this better:"The 17 oz selvedge denim by Iron Heart which uses organic cotton and natural indigo is now available in a Type 3 trucker jacket."

Does it mean, that the jacket is dyed only in natural indigo, or that the dye is a mix of synthetic and natural indigo?

This denim is rope-dyed with natural indigo rather than the more commonly used synthetic variation

Will it fade to a more turquoise colour then like I have seen with some pants?

I understand, that there are a lot of factors to the indigo dyeing.

Perhaps the turquoise colour comes more out with hank dyed fabric?

You definitely can see lighter hues of indigo from hank -dyed denim.

If you feel like treating yourself to something unique as a reward for surviving Christmas and New Year or even 2016 itself then look no further than the first drop of 2017:  The Copeland Shirt in Dust Beige Rough Out from Indigofera.

Individually numbered, from a very limited run of 38, this is a heavyweight piece that will stand the test of time. Thick, unlined cowhide, cut in the ‘Copeland’ style (straight cut but less boxy than the Fargo) in an evocative desert beige. It's hard to do anything but admire.

Heavy duty press studs and riveted side seams are the only hardware this shirt needs and a subtle stitch pattern detail on each breast pocket tops off the whole idea perfectly.

Indigofera has now released the ‘Acoma’ jacket. 100% waxed cotton canvas and blanket lined, this jacket demonstrates real versatility for the elements and locations, whether town or country. All edges are trimmed with a brown corduroy  both outside and inside: collar, hem, cuffs, placket and pockets (two angled outer and two inner). The jacket is finished with heavy duty snap logo buttons on the placket and two buttons to the cuff and reinforced pockets with logo rivets at each outer corner. The cut is straight fitting but not too loose. The back is designed slightly longer than the front and curved to offer that extra protection as you would expect from a jacket with this function.

Nine Lives continues to astound and delight with their fabric, fit, cut and construction. The Jacquard Check Raglan Shirt is constructed using 5 different colours within the weave. The pattern detail is almost fractal, in that the closer you examine it the more the intricacy is revealed. Particular attention has been paid to the seams and structure of the shoulder, resulting in a superlative fit. Available in wine and russet colourways, these slim fitting shirts – like all Nine Lives offerings – really need to be seen to be believed.

Keeping us warm and helping us layer, Nine Lives also brings us the Tsuriurake Loopwheeled Sweater. Raglan sleeved (no shoulder seams) this piece has been created in Wakayama on a hanging loopwheel machine. In a break from the norm, Nine Lives have then reconstructed the sides, cutting and adding side seams in order to create a more fitted silhouette than is available from an unaltered loopwheel construction. Super soft, thick, warm, smart & comfortable. Tsuriurake refers to the hanging loopwheeler used with great skill in the Wakayama region of Japan.

We just received the first drop from 3sixteen's Summer' 17 lineup with two lightweight and remarkably soft shirts getting us prepped for the warmer months ahead.

First off is the Navy Waffle Knit Work Shirt. The fabric is loomed in Japan and as the name suggests has plenty of texture. This shirt features the 3sixteen trademark crosscut back yoke and also has enamel coated buttons designed to chip and age with wear.

Next up is the Faded Blue Utility Work Shirt. This lightweight Japanese flannel has a sun-faded worn-in texture,  is super soft and will be easy to wear on a hot day. The horn buttons have been burnt for both colour and texture.
