FS: Pure Blue Japan XX-012 sz33 Rope-dyed, double indigo selvedge jeans

Recommended Posts

Up for grabs today is a pair of Pure Blue Japan xx-012's. The price is £170.
 
Those who know their denim will know about these, but for the uninitiated, this is a pair of slubby, super uneven, deep indigo jeans in a size 33. Made in Japan by the denim masters at PBJ using a combination of high and low tech production methods. 
 
They are unsanforized, and unsoaked, worn for an afternoon to try 'em for size but unfortunately they're snug already and therefore requiring a size up to accommodate the post-soak shrinkage. The fit is slim and tapered- a more fashion forward version of the xx-007 featuring PBJ's signature contrasty denim. 
 
NB FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW: these should be submerged in hot water before the first proper wear and will shrink up to 2" depending on the temperature.  
 
All tags are still on- there's a minuscule amount of fading on the back pockets because these fade FAST. My own pics to follow but here's some stock images (courtesy Okayama Denim)/fade pics to whet the appetite!
