About the product
[Unique design 'Hem stepped-cut denim']The unique design of the 'Hem Stepped-Cut Denim' is that the length of the hem is different in the front and the back, and when viewed from the side, the hem is stepped. The difference between the front and back is 5 cm, so when worn with boots or high-heeled shoes, the hem does not look bulky or sloppy from the front or back, giving a clean look. The silhouette is a basic straight, five-pocket design with coin pockets. The buttons and rivets have a skull-inspired design.
[The beginnings of the 'Hem Stepped-Cut Denim']When wearing jeans for everyday use and boots or straddling a motorbike, the hem length of normal denim often felt too short. The idea was to change the length of the inseam at the front and back so that the hem fits when you straddle a motorbike. The 'Hem Stepped-Cut Denim' has different lengths at the front and back, so it is just the right length when you straddle a motorbike. The design also fits well when wearing high-heeled shoes such as boots or pumps and bikers. The inseam length is available in two sizes, so you can choose according to your body shape and preferences.
[The material reproduces the colour tones of the 70s and 80s.]The " Hem Stepped-Cut Denim " is made of a denim material with a unique atmosphere, reproducing the colour tones of the 70s and 80s. It references US denim from the 70s, when rope dyeing was first developed in Japan, and reproduces the look from the 70s up to the 80s, when wide innovative looms became the norm. Unlike uneven denim, which uses slub spun yarns of uneven thickness, the twill grain is clear. The yarn used for this product is spun in an open-ended technique, which gives it a characteristic crinkled appearance when washed, a look often seen in the slim denim that was popular in the 80s. The dyeing is pure indigo ten times, dyed slightly lightly, so the colour will fade to a beautiful blue with no warp fading in a relatively short time. One of the characteristics of open-ended yarns is that the surface is "twisted" during the yarn-making process, making it smooth, but the inside is less "twisted", so the yarn swells when washed. The more the fabric is used, the softer and easier it becomes to wear.
[Made in Fukuyama] In the Bingo region of eastern Hiroshima Prefecture, cotton production has flourished since the Edo period, and the indigo-dyed fabric Bingo Kasuri was produced. The traditional techniques of making these indigo-dyed fabrics helped the area to become a major denim production area after the war. Fukuyama City accounts for a large share of the national market for denim, the fabric used to make jeans, and various denim-related industries, such as denim weaving and indigo dyeing factories, have gathered in Fukuyama to engage in manufacturing. The "Hem stepped-cut denim" is also cut and sewn by skilled artisans in Bingo and Fukuyama, focusing on careful craftsmanship and affordable prices.
[Scenes of wear] IThey are perfect for touring on motorbikes or walking around town in parks and shrines. The denim can be used in a variety of situations.
