Models: XX 017
Cobalt Denim Tapered Slim
14oz cobalt denim. Tapered Slim. One wash.
The XX-017 is taking the pursuit of 'Blue' by PBJ to the next level. Using an updated fabric by combining a vibrant cobalt blue weft with an indigo blue dyed warp, the modern Slim Tapered cut used on the XX-011 has been appropriated to this model. These are also available in both a Raw and One Wash fabric.
The material is the familiar 14 oz rough Pure Blue selvedge denim. It uses a rather strange type of denim with cobalt colored weft that produces a vibrant blue.
It's another in the large palette of blues available from Pure Blue Japan.
The warp, which is most important in fading, is dyed the regular indigo color so you can expect a nice contrast when the color starts to drain from it. Combined with the cobalt of the weft it should produce a new range of colors different from regular denim.
The buttons are rivets are black, with a dark blue stitch used throughout to make it look stylish. However the side of the waist and hem use cobalt colored stitching which emphasizes its unique character.
The fit is a true slim tapered with a tapered leg opening,the same as the XX-011 and the tightest, most tapered in the XX series. Right now, it's most popular with younger age groups because of its straight, clean shape from the waist down.
