Tenue de Nîmes, denim’s equivalent to a candy shop, has released a limited edition stack of Big John “Ruri” wash natural indigo jeans. ”The ‘slim-tapered’ collaboration refers to the legendary Big John M1002 from 1967 made from a 14.5 oz fabric.” Other eye-candy deets: the jeans are made from Kaihara denim with a 25% reduced dyeing method which creates the traditional bright blue color referred to as ‘Ruri’ in Japanese. Also note the yellow selvage (a tribute to the traditional 1960s fabric made by Cone Mills) and original Delft’s Blauw (Dutch farmer’s cloth) lining. Only 24 pairs were made. The jeans go for €229.95.
