SugarCane. As you can tell from its name with such an American influence, this brand is the very first clothing label out of Japan for the American market. For many years, Sugar Cane Jeans were a ferociously guarded Japanese secret but today the brand is attracting global attention. Interestingly, Sugar Cane prefer to use the vintage term ‘dungarees’ in preference to the term ‘jeans’ to describe their product: “The word ‘jeans’ has become the vernacular for faux denim fashion wear that masquerades as the tough, classic waist overalls history made famous.”

We have thoroughly analyzed our forerunners jeans from the 1900 ’ s in chronicle order from yarn, dye, weave and construction to components . We have with us the actual results of fabric woven and colour fade test on the original pants worn. In order to create our own original jeans, it took over 20 years of research. To perfectly reproduce denim fabrics from 50 to 100 years ago in today ’ s advanced period is extremely difficult. To begin with we had to look for old power looms that had worked to weave denim fabric in those days, restore them and adjust them to weave the fabric we have. It was not easy to revive the old machines that disappeared a long time ago due to rationalization. Nowadays, the old power looms are not so unusual but in the early research stage, satisfactory fabrics could not be woven on the old looms found. It was a joint operation with the weaver of trial and failure and advanced step by step.

‘ Sugar Cane ’ denim by traditional Japanese dyeing techniques by hand and not by machine. The first model ‘ Sugar Cane Awa ’ is made of sugar cane denim dyed by Awa indigo. Awa used to be one of the popular places producing indigo, located in the western part of Japan. The second model ‘ Sugar Cane Okinawa ’ is made of sugar cane fibre and indigo produced in the region of Okinawa, Japan. The third model ‘ Sugar Cane Hawaii ’ is made from sugar cane and indigo imported from Hawaii

The current "SC27852" has been lined up since 2018, with repeated minor changes and renewals in fabrics, details, and sizes. The base is a work shirt from the golden age of the United States in the 1950's. Made from 9 ounces of selvedge denim woven from rope-dyed 100% cotton indigo thread on a power loom, it incorporates details such as 3-needle wrapping, flap pockets and durable urea buttons. The distance between the 1st and 2nd buttons has been adjusted to be slightly narrower so that the collar does not open too much. The button uses a durable urea cat-eye button that can withstand washing and ironing. The large chest pocket with an emphasis on practicality is sewn firmly with double stitching. Buttons are attached to the flaps to prevent objects inside the pocket from falling off. The nemuri hole on the left flap is for pen insertion. The yoke part is a reinforced double yoke. Depending on the sewn area, the part where 10 pieces of fabric overlap is also wound and sewn. The binder on the cuffs is made of one piece, so it is simple and resistant to tearing. Made in Japan
