The MIJ7 – Yahan Midnight Selvedge is an unsanforized 17oz slubby Japanese selvedge denim dyed to such a deep shade of indigo that it appears black. Indigo rope dyeing is a delicate process of running cotton yarns through two story dye vats quickly enough that the dye cannot penetrate the core of the yarn. Then the yarn dries and is dipped again, dries and is dipped again. The yarns are dipped dozens of times to achieve that raw denim shade. But here, with just a little black dye added, these yarns have been dyed over and over so many times that they appear black. With wear and age, the opposite process occurs. Each layer of indigo chips away revealing dark blues, then medium bright blues, then light blues, then finally the white core of the yarn. This fabric is made to celebrate the full spectrum of variegated indigo shades. The yarns themselves are irregular, slubby, and woven loosely giving the fabric an organic, uneven grain. The denim is unsanforized but tempi treated, which shrinks the fabric but protects the hairiness, grittiness, and raw denim feel. The MIJ7 builds in the unparalleled detailing of the Made in Japan collection: black iron buttons that will rust, copper rivets that will oxidize, raised belt loops that will fade, a Japanese sheepskin leather patch with the “Flower of Carnage” logo, the MIJ maple leaf embroidered onto the back pocket, micro busted outseam, and a selvedge button fly. Dyed, woven, cut, sewn, built in Japan. The Easy Guy is a high-rise tapered fit with a relaxed top block and a sharp taper from knee to hem.
