3sixteen 40BSP Caustic Wave Denim Jeans & Jacket

This week we have a new run of 3sixteen's Caustic Wave denim jackets and jeans.

The 40BSP jean is made of a 16.5oz unsanforized (but rinsed) denim made into a straight tapered jean fit. This fit has a true medium rise, a top block that is comfortable, and a leg which has a strong taper for a small leg opening at the hem.

One of the best selling denim jackets of the past few years has been 3sixteen’s modified Type III. We’re happy to announce that it’s also made in a traditional indigo warp / natural weft denim using the 16.5oz Caustic Wave 40BSP denim which starts out unsanforized but has been rinsed to make sizing easier. This jacket has cord lined hand pockets and cuffs, a slightly extended length so you can wear with untucked shirts easily, and slightly longer sleeves than 3sixteen's normal Type III jackets.

The "Caustic Wave" denim was developed with the intention of creating a fabric which would yield electric blue high friction points and a high contrast fade with regular wear. A strong variation within the weave of the fabric combined with strongly twisted yarns of uneven shapes and lengths creates an abrasive denim with a crisp and dry hand feel.

We also have a fresh run of their black zip hoodies.

All three of these items are available now at all stores and online.

Pure Blue Japan Type III Jackets, Slub Jersey Shirts, & Slubby Double Black Jeans

We're happy to finally have in stock one of PBJ's most coveted items, their indigo/black Type III denim jacket. This one comes in a special unsanforized 18oz denim which has been lightly rinsed to get the shrinkage out of the fabric.

We also have a new slub jersey long sleeve henley which is pure indigo dyed. These are sure to age well with regular wear as they break in over time.

We've also received a full restock of their XX-019-BB straight tapered black/black jeans, these sold very well for us and we're glad we can offer them again.

All three of these items are available now in-store and online.

Flat Head Indigo Linen Shirts, Summer Shirts, & Cordovan Wallets

There is a Flat Head shirt from their 2010 summer collection which we loved so much we had them remake the fabric and the shirts. These are indigo-dyed linen shirts available in short and long sleeve versions with custom painted Flat Head buttons. These age really well over time and are comfortable to wear in all climates.

We've also got the Weezy Breezy shirt made of a new cotton/linen blend fabric developed for this shirt.

Along with these shirts we've receive fresh runs of their popular shell cordovan wallets in both half-fold and small versions.

Pulled this off another webstore who stocks Flat Head:
"As you may have heard, The Flat Head brand, as we know it, will no longer be producing denim, shirting, outerwear, etc. Please be mindful when perusing our Flat Head offerings that inventory going forward is extremely limited."

Good bye TFH?

Yep. I grabbed another pair of 3009s from SESF a couple of weeks ago so that I would have an extra.

I also got an existing pair of 3009s repaired. Just wanted to say compliments to the crew at SESF. Great service. The repairs are quite reasonably priced and done quickly.

Hi Kiya,

Was wondering if there’s a chance of a restock on the short sleeved Glory Park indigo linen TFH shirt in size 40. I tried ordering today and the site said there were at least 4 units available. Sadly, I received an email hours later saying you’re sold out. (Props for the very quick follow up, as always). Was wondering if Kobayashi-San would let us order another batch during their swan song.

As they say on the NMWA thread, guess I shouldn’t have slept on it.

No sorry, we got about 160 of them and blew threw common sizes in 24 hours. I haven't seen a shirt sell this fast since the last time we had a Roy shirt.
They won't be made again, but we may get a return or two due to sizing if you'd like to add the shirt/size to your wishlist you'll be notified if we get one back in stock.

Hi Kiya,
Thanks for your reply. I ended up kopping the size 38 and am very happy with the fit—as long as I don’t eat too many cannolis. Quick question: will there be any shrinkage with this fabric if I dry it on a delicate cycle at all or do I need to commit to hang drying to preserve the solid fit? Figured you have a sense of things given how awesomely well worn your shirt is. Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

These do shrink a little bit when washed.
I would wash it in cold water and air/line dry it for minimal shrinkage.
With mine I was machine washing it on warm and drying it in the dryer but I also sized up to a 42 because I knew I would just be washing and drying it so many times I didn't want it to shrink too much over the years.

Thanks, Kiya. I will launder the shirt most delicately and hang dry just like I do with all of my Merz tees. Looking forward to patinating the shirt in the coming months.

Anyone with a size 40 short sleeve linen indigo piece thinking of moving it on, please contact me :)
