Pure Blue Japan has a unique production method utilizing a low tension machine, resulting in a slubby, and rough feeling denim. What is particularly special about their production is that most of their denim rolls off a single machine. A machine which has been adjusted to output fabric which features an uneven and hairy weave. This, coupled with the fact that they only produce through the oldest and finest mills in Okayama, has allowed Pure Blue Japan to produce some of the best quality vintage jeans for denim aficionados for the past decade.
Glance at the back right pocket of a pair of Pure Blue Japan and you will see a stitched indigo leaf. This represents the vision of the company—the purest, most genuine and living blue jeans money can buy. PBJ’s, as they are often called, are woven on vintage, low-tension shuttle looms, giving them an irregular, slubby hand (slub is a very desirable denim characteristic giving the denim a hairy and rough surface, allowing for greater depth of character). Pure Blue Japan jeans are dyed with natural indigo and become a natural part of you the longer they are worn.
