This 3/1 left twill, light-ounce denim is made of U.S.-grown organic cotton and woven on an old-style power loom in Okayama, Japan. The denim fabric is woven slowly on an old-type power loom, also known as a shuttle loom, which can weave at only 1/10 to 1/20 the speed of modern looms, leaving the original unevenness of the cotton yarns and making it uneven in a good sense. The warp yarn is indigo mixed with sulfide dye, and has a weathered green cast color. The core is dyed white using rope dyeing. The weft yarns are custom-made nep yarn dyed to a yellowish, raw color that evokes the passage of time. By using these two types of yarns, we arrived at Taiga Takahashi's original dark and deep indigo blue. The finishing touch is a shrink-proofing process called "Sanforized.
The fabric is a "white ear" selvedge denim fabric, and the white ear is used in various places, including the back of the belt.
The silhouette of this denim is a 1910s formal trouser found in France. Since belt loops themselves did not exist, they had buttons on the waistband and suspenders attached to them for life. The silhouette was designed to be thicker, with both sides using ears and the silhouette falling straight down from the armpits to the hem.
Custom-made rivets were placed in areas where force was applied, and the engraved buttons and backs were all made of iron and not plated, so they would rust over time, allowing the garment to age well.
The signature leather patches are mud-dyed on Amami-Oshima Island.
