SUGAR CANE SUPER DENIM COLLECTIBLES, WHITESVILLE BORDER STRIPE TEES, & SPRING COLLECTIONS​

Led by Yuichi Fukutomi, a denim specialist from Sugar Cane, the new label SUGAR CANE Super “Denim” Collectibles was launched this year bringing together a team of denim experts. Renowned vintage denim collector, Shigeki Wakiya, has joined this project with a focus on faithfully replicating the “character” of super rare, deadstock, and golden-sized super-vintage pieces that are nearly impossible to find today. The inaugural collection features pieces which have garnered significant attention in the current vintage market and are known as the “World War II model.” Drawing inspiration from unwashed deadstock vintage denim blouses and jeans, complete with residual glue, new denim fabrics were developed and painstakingly duplicated to match the original vintages, capturing the color hue of oxidized indigo and the characteristics of the warp and weft yarns. Various components are created to emulate the aged appearance of deadstock. Regarding the sewing stitching, not only are the thread count and sewing pitch faithfully recreated, but also the irregular, non-uniform stitching is meticulously duplicated.

The 1943 model represents a product manufactured during one of the most challenging years for material control within the U.S. industry, amidst the harsh conditions of World War II. It features highly uneven and rugged denim fabric, military-style doughnut buttons, steel rivet, and all yellow-stitching. It omits rivets on the coin pocket, and has uncoated concealed rivets, preserving their natural steel color. The pocket bags are made from flannel fabric, demonstrating the strict cotton usage regulations of the time. Similarly, due to a shortage of skilled workers, various irregularities, such as rough sewing stitches, misaligned back yoke seams, and imperfect hemming, can be observed, which would be considered unacceptable in normal circumstances.
We've also received new striped whitesville t-shirts in a heavier weight fabric, Duke Pineapple summer shirts, and jean restocks in all fits in both indigo and black.

I love PBJ's denim - their fabrics are some of the best. My very first pair of Japanese denims were PBJs purchased at your store in SF. I don't wear them as much anymore because they are too tapered. I wish they would do more relaxed fits with wider leg openings. Almost everything they do is tapered.

Yes! here are four of my favorites which I believe will work for you in terms of a lighter denim with a medium rise and a tapered leg:

Sorry I should’ve been clearer. By “light wash” I meant light colored denim.

I highly recommend the Carmel 220's. Give em a few washes to start and then wear. They'll make their to the lighter color in due time

I'm sorry but we don't carry pre-distressed jeans, we have over 200 models of jeans in stock, but they're all considered "raw denim" meaning they don't come factory distressed.

SEUVAS MATCHA-DYED CAPSULE COLLECTION​

Seuvas brings us a new match dyed capsule collection taking their three best selling garments and presenting them in a subtle green by garment dying them in matcha. We also have a new "wing collar" jacket with a nice side tied gusset detail.

Seuvas is a brand dedicated to the art of producing canvas of all weights. They own their own canvas looms and factory which produces their canvas exactly to their specifications for the right look and texture. They even cut and sew all the garments in their own workshop in Kurashiki, Japan using vintage sewing machines so that the canvas reacts with just the right amount of puckering at the seams.

The only exterior branding on their garments is a single hand-made porcelain button made from clay ore (Amakusa pottery stone) mined in Amakusa City, Kimamoto prefecture, Japan. Amakusa pottery stone is a historic pottery stone that is a raw material which has been used in Japanese pottery since the 17th century. These porcelain buttons are designed by Seuvas and made in the traditional way in Amakusa.
