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.

Jeans have become even more popular and easy to purchase since the take off of online shopping. While many people initially are apprehensive about buying jeans on the internet without first being able to try them on for size. However, exchange policies are generally accommodating, and of course once you know your size in one particular brand and style, it is easy to re-order more of your favorite jeans. Www.Denimio.Com
