Hey Jon, what's up - what is sumizome? looking forward to the new catalogue. thanks

Sumi (墨) is black ink made from charcoal for calligraphy in Asian countries. Usually it comes in a solid stick form and when water is added you grate it into an ink. Sumizome (墨染め) is using the liquid form of said charcoal, to form a pigment-dye which is totally natural/organic. I am unsure how it will fade or wash.

Kapital is offering this color which is a medium dark grey, in two different styles. One is a warp-yarn-dyed denim, and a indigo and sumi hickory striped twill. Both come in several different cuts.

I'm really tempted to pick a pair of those grey ones. Do they come in every Kapital cut?

They come in TH, Stone, Elder, Cisco, and painter pants. You can see a few more pics on their site under "New". I can also take some pics next time I drop by the store.

the kapital site is too "japanese-y" to understand with google translate.

can someone tell me what jeans have the slimmest cut?

Stone, but their cuts are more along the vintage route...

Had a sneak peek at the new Kapital catalog for Summer 2011, first impression: wow! catalog should be available soon maybe in the next two weeks or so. If you want a copy just send me a PM.

Some of the popular Kountry items made their way into this collection, as part of the seasonal line-up. Really everything I saw looks great.

Hi, can somebody suggest the best way to buy some Kapital stones in the USA? I'm kind of lost. Sorry for being so dense.

You could use some proxy service like Sharpservice.jp or there can be even somebody in this thread that can help you... :)

Yeah good reviews on that place...:rolleyes:

Plus looking at their website, that is definitely not a full line. I know I am there almost every week.
