Good post, Broark, whose denim is he using?

Thanks Lance, I'm not 100% sure. His web page just references that it is 13.5 oz. and the color composition is "85% black, 15% red".
Assuming this is in reference to the denim cast, but not a lot of information about the source.
There are some nice examples of faded pairs scattered throughout his Instagram.

Also here is an interview with BoT, with a nice view of the workshop.
YouTube auto-translate is worthless on this video, so I'm not sure what's discussed but they check out a few vintage Levi's and some of his jeans/jackets as well.

My favorite maker out there! Hoping to find an avenue to purchase his denim as well.

In the Youtube video he mentions that the denim is Ibara, but I've been out of the game too long that I don't know what he's referencing. 

This link references Ibara as an association of NIHONMENPU TEXTILE INC., KUROKI CO,.LTD, YOSHIKAWA ORIMONO CO, so it's likely one of them.

Hilariously, at the end the creator of the video writes that that night he realized he forgot to order a pair (but will be back again) :laugh:

Shinya Mills is also located in Ibara (the mill from Resolute, Full Count, etc.)

You forgot to mention Nippers ;)

Mea culpa... :D

And of course TCB as well. Not sure about Denime for example (they also sourced from Nihon Menpu)

Nice pocket flasher update and a small change to the patch / lettering typeface.

Another video from the same channel @aho posted above on soaking and shrinkage of the S824XX model. I have to watch it at work so I can turn the translation on, even then it’s occasionally still hilarious.

This is true with some exceptions, since the pandemic he opened up to IG orders for domestic shipment within Japan. 
I had an acquaintance there arrange these for me. :ph34r: I'll post lots of photos once they arrive.

@Broark hook it up homie!

This is a one time deal for the time being, but we'll see if anything can be done to change that in the future!

@MJF9 they're in the wash as we speak, will get some photos up here in the next couple of days once they're dry and on my legs.
I have an offer on the table to order the accompanying jacket as well, however my stable is pretty full on that front so TBD. :ph34r:
