Real Japan Blues Jeans - The 106BSP & 105BSP

Hailing from Nagano, Japan.. Real Japan Blues is known for their psychotic ways of producing even the simplest of garments. They take everything from western shirts to five pocket jeans and create them in an entirely new way using fabrics that impress even the most seasoned garment junkie.

Two new models from RJB are being released this weekend in limited numbers, at this point RJB is not sure as to whether or not these will be reproduced once this run is gone.

The 106BSP is a slim fit jean with a straight leg and the 105BSP has a mid-rise and a straight leg. We're quite into the cuts because we feel there is a gap in the Japanese denim market for jeans that aren't exactly reproductions but have a heavy nod to the Rockabilly days of the late 1950's, jeans that make you look like you're Marlon Brando or James Dean but aren't really the cuts they were wearing fifty years ago. A combination of the denim, leg silhouettes, tags, and knife pocket.. We see a badass from the 50's that wreaks havoc on civilians with his motorcycle gang, and we love it.

The denim on these is a new denim which has impressed us here to say the least. It's similar to Flat Head's 3XXX denim in terms of how hairy it becomes after the first soak but has a deeper indigo color straight off. The dye method yields an extremely high contrast fade which we'd only seen this intense before on Flat Head's denim, yet it's quite different considering it's pure indigo and the cotton is from Zimbabwe.

Spec list for both the 106BSP and 105BSP:
13.75oz Rope Dyed Japanese Selvedge Unsanforized Denim
Zimbabwe Cotton Fiber Denim
Double Length Knife Pocket (Coin Pocket)
Hidden Rivets
Black Dyed Cowhide Leather Tag
Red RJB Embroidered Logo
Copper RJB Rivets

Modeled by Cesar Ramos of Mission Hill Saloon and shot by Sidney Lo.

Both the 105BSP & the 106BSP will be released at Self Edge on December 20th at Noon and at the same time via our online store. 100 pairs of each model were produced by RJB. Check the online store for more hi-res photos, specs, and pricing:

Real Japan Blues 66BSPBK
19cm Cut
Black Only
15oz Black Selvedge (Black weft / Black warp)

These should be out within the next couple of weeks.
Please excuse the mess that is my sneakers/laces/hem, i just put them on for a second for a few photos. I'm wearing a size 29, and these have not be soaked, so i have no idea how much they're going to shrink until we test a pair.

After three months and one wash. Can't really see how they've faded from these photos, but they have, and it's quite amazing..

Those are looking sweet. I want a pair but I think even the 105s might be too slim for me.

The 105's would definitely not be considered slim by anybody's standards, maybe the measurements are deceiving.

I think that has to be it. The 34s thigh are measured to 12.6, to 11.8 post soak. The IH 634s (size 33) thigh at 12.2 are as slim as I would go. Next time I make it out to SF I want to try them on since the denim and cut both look really good.

I stopped by the RJB store in Daikanyama, Tokyo today to score a red kasuri shirt. Unfortunately, they were out of my size but man, those shirts are AMAZING; very soft and the snaps have a slight pearlescent sheen. The store itself is very, very cool: a "Kramer shirt" paradise, and I mean that in the best possible way.

So Kiya, any idea when you'll have a restock on the Kasuri shirts? Or would it be possible for SelfEdge to order a size 42 directly from RJB?

They're sold out, what we have is all we'll have left.
We have ONE black one left in a 42, i'd buy it before it's gone:

What are the differences between the 105BSP and 105A (or whatever the model is in the Lightning Indigo Master issue)?
