okayamadenim Starting the day off right with a cup of joe from Tarukoya Roasters hailing from Kobe, Japan, in our new favorite mug.
It's no surprise it's by way of SDA, they've been in the denim game long enough to justify having a bit of fun with product beyond jeans!
Both the Sunglasses ($65) and Mug ($30) are now available online.

okayamadenim Natural Indigo denim, is the epitome, the crème de la crème if you will, of Japanese denim.
The denim is spun in Okayama, then sent north to Tokushima, where skilled Shokunin (artisans) have been hand dyeing not only denim, but traditional Japanese textiles dating back to the 1700s. Their indigo dye is derived directly from the Indigo plant, thus spun (pun intended🤓) the term 'Natural Indigo'.
It is no surprise they've decided to cut it in the ever-loved Slim Tapered '13' silhouette this time around.
It goes without saying, the numbers were slim in production for these as the task to hand dye denim in Japan is both tedious and costly.

okayamadenim Micro shot Selvedge on the new JB0626 that launched recently.
The mud weft on this slubby 18oz. Selvedge packs so much damn character.
Available online today.

  •   theefficient @khairul.ahzam I'm sure @okayamadenim will weigh in here, but It's very similar. I've seen and felt both in person and they're almost the same texture and look. They're both made by Collect Mills with the same 18 oz weight, and were released around the same time. This is the closest thing you can get to the slub of the ODJB001. The colors are very cool too, if I hadn't bought the 001s I'd have bought these, the JB0626 aka "Godzilla". 1w
  •   okayamadenim @theefficient You know your ish! @khairul.ahzam regarding the two fabrics, let's break down the story here. We asked JB to produce something special for us to collaborate with. They came up with a bunch of sample swatches. We used the Blue Weft one (the one whose threading and tension we selected) but other samples included deep indigo, standard white Weft indigo, and brown Weft. The brown weft from that sample run was used by JB (who ran it by us first as it was our thing to do the slubby as hell 18oz) on the JB0626. Hope this clears things us! 1w

okayamadenim The first week of May in Japan is called Golden Week, a traditional week-long calendar holiday. For anyone who placed an order last week, sorry for the delay
Aside from taking some time off, we got to check this gorgeous spot off our bucket list
The Daiosaki Lighthouse in Mie was built in the early 1700s, and to this day is amongst Japan's most famous structures.
Pretty epic view too, wouldn't you agree?

Our recent collaboration fabric in milling action in Okayama.

  •   speed.through.stars Hi. My girlfriend ordered a Pure Blue Japan indigo Komon bandana well over a week ago, and never got a shipping date confirmation. She also ordered the Diamond pattern indigo Bandana a few days ago, and again, no shipping date confirmation. She emailed you yesterday and still got no response. That's unprofessional and poor sign of how you conduct business, and I would like the order to be cancelled and her money to be returned to her bank account please. She will be emailing you the confirmation of purchase codes on both separate transactions. Thank you. 2w
  •   okayamadenim @speed.through.stars Hey Michael, it's no excuse, but these orders came in during the one week we take off for the year, Golden Week, a week of holidays in Japan. Shipping is normally immediately, and replying emails even quicker. We appreciate your understanding, and both orders have been cancelled and refunded already. Let us know if we can help with anything else. 2w
  •   okayamadenim @speed.through.stars You can read about our time off on our blog as well! Sorry about the trouble 2w
  •   speed.through.stars I do understand a bit about Golden Week from studying your beautiful culture many years ago. I did not realize that it was this past week, and i would like to sincerely apologize for my ignorance. Thank you for your kind response and handling my request with a professional attitude and quick customer service. Five stars to you. Because how you handle a situation like this is just as important as making a sale. Thank you. 2w

okayamadenim The OD+JB Capsule Collection just went live.
Featuring an 18oz. Selvedge milled from scratch as a collaboration with Japan Blue, we dubbed this Selvedge the "Sapphire Slub". Sapphire connotes the hue of blue while Slub describes the streaky as hell, borderline three dimensional texture. Making it a true capsule collection, we used the same 18oz. Selvedge denim across three unique garments. The series includes a pair of Jeans, jacket and Baseball cap, packed with design details to impress.
Check out what we've been proudly grinding to the link in profile

  •   nicholoplaza Lol. Thought that's what you meant. What would you say is the slubbiest denim you carry? With both weft and warp yarns being slubby. 2w
  •   okayamadenim @nicholoplaza To be honest, the classic 14oz selvedge by PBJ, used on the XX-003, 005 and 013 is probably the slubiest & nepiest (I think we're making up our own words now ) denim we carry 2w
  •   nicholoplaza Hmm. Maybe I'll pick one up once my 18oz is all worked in! Loving the one I got from you guys. 2w

  •   thegift1975 Don't size up. I think that size chart is wrong on the site. Unless the pair I have were tagged wrong. Denim is awesome though. 2mon
  •   b_harlley @thegift1975 TTS then? 2mon
  •   thegift1975 Yea I would think so. I have a tagged 36 and the measurements is what is on the tagged 38 on the site. I'd probably ask for them to confirm measurements for you. 2mon
  •   okayamadenim @thegift1975 ️ listen to this guy @b_harlley we need to update the sizing online, but TTS is how you want to go. Like he said though, we can always measure the actual pair we plan to ship to you. 2mon
