New arrivals: ONI Denim khaki chino & pre-orders

We're happy to offer the coveted ONI Denim 757 Khaki Beige chino for the second summer in a row. This staple piece is a versatile garment that's easy to pair up with some sneakers or boots when the weather gets cooler again.

The chinos are made of 100% cotton 11.9oz selvegde fabric. The fit has a medium rise and the leg is tapered from the knee down, leaving you with plenty or moving room for the warmer days. It has a button fly with donut buttons and is of course made in Japan. We've stocked sizes 31-38 and the chinos are washed, so don't worry about shrinking.

In august we are expecting another shipment of ONI jeans. You can now pre-order these items:

ONI Denim 246ZR-LT17-G
A 17oz, regular straight pair of jeans. The denim on these is very dark and offers green contrast stitching, making these stand out in your collection. Make sure to pre-order yours so you don't miss out: available in sizes 30-38.

ONI Denim 546 Aizumi
This is a tighter fit, made out of 16oz selvedge denim. Available for pre-order in sizes 31-36.

ONI Denim Aizumi Type II denim jacket
This killer denim jacket is made out of the same denim as the 546 Aizumi jeans. The classic Type II silhouette by ONI has been made a bit more practical by adding two side pockets. The donut buttons on the jackets are black, which will wear down to reveal the silver-colored hardware over time. Available in sizes 40 and 42.

Pure Blue Japan XX-019-WID

Pure Blue Japan is known for it's denim full of character and great construction, and the XX-019-WID is not exception. It's a double indigo denim, so both the warp and the weft are dyed. 

If you're a fan of Pure Blue Japan for longer, you will recognize the denim from the XX-007 and XX-012 jeans. This creates a very deep color of blue and naturally, fades in its own unique way. The 14 oz denim is, as you can expect from PBJ, slubby as always. This means it has a lot of irregularities, creating a textured fabric. The fades from this almost iconic denim will be intense. A proper denim collection is not complete without a pair of double-indigo jeans! Some more details from this pair:
  • 100% cotton, 14 oz
  • Made in Japan
  • 5 button fly with black coated hardware
  • Leather patch (deer)
  • Leaf logo stitched
  • Blue selvedge ID line
  • Black pocket bags
Pure Blue Japan's XX-019 fit is a relaxed tapered fit, and has gotten quite popular since it got released. It's a slim fit with roomier thighs, creating a modern but not super slim fit. We also offer this fit made from a 17,5 oz denim dyed with natural indigo.

We stock sizes 32-38 and it comes one-washed, so you can wear it straight after picking up your pair and you won't need to worry about soaking and shrinking. Buy your pair here!

New ONI Denim arrivals!

Just in time for the warmest months of the year, we've received two ONI jeans made from a light weight 12 oz denim. ONI named this denim 'Kiraku', which translates to 'light' or 'comfortable'. Exactly what you need when temperatures reach those summer temperatures.

We offer the ONI Kiraku denim in two fits. The Relaxed Tapered (982) has a high rise that tapers from the knee down. The Modern Regular Straight (206)

Now, ONI is obviously not the only company producing lightweight summer style jeans. What sets these jeans apart from the competition though, is the character of the denim. We're used to very slubby denim from ONI's heavier styles, like the 20 oz Secret Denim. The denim is so distinct that those with a trained eye can spot a pair of worn-in ONI's from a distance. ONI has been able to translate this character into the new 12 oz denim so you're able to wear slubby jeans with a loose weave all year round.

You can notice this light, loose weave when you hold a pair of Kiraku denim jeans to a light source. You can see the light shine through the denim, something that you won't see with heavier denim. ONI's founder, Oishi-san, used a blend of cottons sources (Peru and Pima-cotton) to design the fabric.

As always, ONI released the jeans with all their go-to details. A deer skin leather patch, branded donut buttons for the fly, high quality rivets and arcuates on the back pockets. These jeans are made in a very limited run!

Next to the light weight Kiraku denim, we also received a batch of the 18 oz green cast Kihannen denim. The 299 fit is a regular straight fit with a mid rise. This denim is quite different: it's a very dark, rich fabric that is sure to turn some heads.

Get yours now
We offer all jeans in sizes 31-38 in a one-washed state so you don't have to worry about shrinking. Drop by our store to try them on or order your pair online (free shipping within Europe!). We can hem your jeans to any length you like with our Union Special chain stitch service.

Jewellery by First Arrow's in Berlin

We've received our first batch of First Arrow's silver jewellery at DC4 Berlin. The brand has been around since 1996 and has been founded by silver smith Kazuya Ito. First Arrow's is based in Tokyo and inspired by Native American artwork.

You'll notice First Arrow's largely revolves around symbols like feathers, a symbol of power and freedom. An eagle feather is considered a blessing by the Native American. The pieces are crafted by hand in, of course, Japan. The pieces are finely detailed and will, like your denim, age with daily wear. It has taken Kazuya Ito years to master his craft to create these delicate pieces out of silver, gold and turquoise.

A rare silver quality
First Arrow's products are made out of a relatively rare metal that is 95% silver and 5% other materials (Silver 950, also known as the French 1st Standard). This is a higher quality than sterling silver you usually encounter in jewellery. This 950 silver is used to provide a better ageing effect, so that works out perfectly balanced with a pair of Japanese jeans.
