Signed Pure Blue Japan XX-005
Had these jeans for maybe 2 years now. They were worn hard for over a year. Wearing these jeans brings back memories of a time when I was reminded that life can be tough. During this period they were washed initially by hand twice and then eventually by machine 3 times with gentle detergent (Wool Lite, if I remember correctly).
Some specs: 14.5 oz, high shrinkage, nice blue selvage. Super slubby. Japanese denim.
They were recently signed by Mr. Pure Blue, who gave me the flattering compliment that these are the most beautifully faded pair of XX-005 he has seen to date. Arigato Iwaya-san.
Special thanks to Yuji Fukushima.
Purchased at Blue in Green in NYC.
