Studio D'artisan has arrived!

We’ve welcomed a few new brands in the store since we’ve reopened DC4. The latest being Studio D’artisan, a brand from Osaka that’s already been around since 1979. 

Many denim heads will recognise a pair of SdA’s from afar by the subtle tab on the coin pockets, swirly arcuates on the back pockets and - of course - the little piggies on the leather patch. For our first batch, we’ve received a total of four different models: the SD-D07, SD-307, SD-507 and one ladies pair, the SDL-703.

Now, all the mens jeans we’ve received are the same fit: slim and tapered, so the silhouette is very modern and flattering. The big differences are in the fabric. Let’s have a closer look.

Studio D’artisan SD-D07 
Not only ONI Jeans know how to get natural indigo in their line-up, Studio D’artisan is all too familiar as well. The beautiful blue tone of this medium weight denim (15oz) is really something special. Only offered in a raw (non-washed) state.

Studio D’artisan SD-307 
Looking for something heavier? Opt for the SD-307 with its 18.5oz denim. No natural indigo, so you can expect faster fading. The original arcuates on the back pockets make this an instant classic. We offer this in both raw and one-washed.

Studio D’artisan SD-507 
This is the lightest denim of the bunch with 12oz denim, making it perfect for warmer days. The denim is woven on old looms, giving it tons of character - don’t let the weight fool you. Comes both in raw and one-washed.

All the pairs have these features:

  • Unsanforized cotton denim (so expect shrinkage on the raw pairs, keep this in mind when ordering - see the size charts for help) 
  • Button fly construction with selvedge details 
  • Heavy duty pockets bags 
  • Thick leather patches 
  • Copper rivets 

Studio D’artisan SDL-703 
Next to the Samurai Jeans Geisha, we’ll be offering a second pair of ladies jeans: the SDL-703. The jeans come in a one-washed state, so you don’t have to worry about shrinkage. The denim is a nice medium weight 14oz. The fit is slim straight, slightly tapered and has a low rise with a button fly.
