Thanks very much, will do. Based on the measurements, I think one would have to size up one in the 702BR to achieve a similar fit to the standard 702. The fabric is also obviously very different. I'm excited to see how it looks and how it will fade. It's also nice to have the contrast stitching as a variation to the dark stitching on the standard 702.
These will likely sit in the closet for a month or so till I finish breaking in my 702s. Now, no more denim for a very long time...

The most recent shipment of Japan Blue Denim came with a few new items. We'd like to start by introducing their first solid black denim. The solid black fabric is very smooth to the touch, and as we've come to expect from Japanese manufacturing the construction is excellent. The fit is tight in the top block with a medium rise, which tapers to a slim knee. From the knee down the fit is essentially straight.

Today we're bringing you the second of Japan Blue's new denim: The 16.5oz Monster selvedge! This heavy-weight, slubby denim has great character, and even greater details. The leather patch on the back is made by none other than Tanner Goods in Portland, Oregon. An important difference to note between these two denim is that the skinny fit is unsanforized, while the tapered is sanforized. The skinny was made primarily for the Asian market, where more traditional fabrics are favored. While we would have preferred the tapered fit follow suit, Japan Blue decided that markets abroad would rather have sanforized fabrics. The irregular weave of the denim can still be seen in the weft of the tapered, but the surface is not as bumpy and fuzzy. Of course, both of the fabrics are still amazing heavy-weight denim that would be perfect for the coming season!
Japan Blue 16.5oz "Monster" Tapered Sanforized Raw Selvedge Denim - Model JB0412. Sizes 28-34, 36. 100% cotton. Made in Japan. $220. For more information on the Japan Blue JB0412, click here

Patch by Tanner Goods, made in Portland, Oregon! The patch is nice and thick, with a beautiful mahogany surface dye. Perfect for a heavy denim like this.
All the details you would expect from Japan Blue are included: Hidden coin pocket selvedge, custom branded buttons, hickory stripe custom pocket bags.
Red and white selvedge, with the signature blue stitched inseam.

We can only estimate at this point, as nobody has soaked them yet to our knowledge. Somewhere between .75-1.25" shrinkage in the inseam is what we expect.

Sunny Sports sent us a package this week with a completely new piece: Hats! This hat in particular is an amazing find because the fabric is made by the famous Woolrich Woolen Mills. Woolrich is an American company that has almost 200 years of history making hardy outdoor clothing and fabrics. In addition these hats are short brimmed, which is a traditional style that has become very hard to find in recent years.
