Pure Blue Japan XX-012 Deep Indigo

Having been over three years in the making, the Pure Blue Japan XX-012 Deep Indigo is finally on shelves at Blue In GreenPure Blue Jeans (PBJ) is a Japanese company who heavily focus on the development and creation of their denims as they believe that “material is a key factor to determine the quality of jeans.”

Front - Pure Blue Japan XX-012 Deep Indigo

This jean, unique in fit and design, was designed by the folks at Blue In Green with heavy inspiration from the PBJ XX-005’s and a uses 100% (non overdyed) indigo woven denim. The most common indigo denims are woven with vertical indigo warp threads and horizontal undyed weft yarns, a trend broken with the design of these jeans.

This is where this 14 oz PBJ XX-012 selvage denim shows off its excellence as the denim uses genuine indigo warp and weft to create the solid blue indigo color throughout the jean. Usually, the undyed threads are what give denim the white contrast whereas these Pure Blues keep only the core of the threads and yarns undyed. This allows denim wearer to still create contrast fading similar to traditional denims, but creates a unique blue overcast fade.

Patch & Coin Pocket - Pure Blue Japan XX-012 Deep Indigo

This jean is made using the same single shuttle loom that has produced other fits, but in this case the loom was manipulated and rigged in order to create a unique loose and uneven weave. Only Pure Blue Japan have been able to use these altered machines creating a particularly unique denim given that the looms were immediately changed back to their original state for use  in other productions.

    Absolutely beautiful. I would love to have these as my next pair since PBJ is the epitome of quality, but there’s no way I can afford that right now.

    i like the leather patch! can’t wait to see how these would fade! probably much slower and with much more contrast. very solid looking. good article.

        i know! it always happens when they are doing these “just released” there is rarely a fit pic. there should be especially for the stranger fits.

    • ReverendGlasseye

      Why did you comment man..

  • disqus_pGsvLvO3SH


  • ReverendGlasseye

    This fucking bullshit with Devan is getting too out of hand. Initially, I was okay with giving him crap and teasing here and there but now it’s to the point of outright bullying and harassment.

    • holyangelmon

      and there you go, the legend of devan end today
      he’ll never show up in rawrdenim anymore

    • knando

      Yea, I agree. Although his instagram page does give us some perspective as to why he comes off the way he does. This bullying has taken away from the posts these past few days. With that said, I love PBJ and they’re my favorite denim brand. I wish they would re-stock the 24-013. But I love the fit of these as well.

  • greySky

    Man these jeans look really fuckin’ nice. Wish I had unlimited money and time to wear in jeans. The article says the jeans are “unique in fit and design”. If claiming a unique fit, I would definitely like to see a fit pic. Can’t blame rawr on this obviously. Good article.

  • Samsaunt

    Informative article, nice job!
