Pure Blue Japan uses natural indigo harvested in the Tokushima prefecture of Japan to hand dye these 17.5oz, Slim Tapered AI-013 jeans. Tokushima indigo is protected under Japanese law as a national treasure - only a handful of craftsmen and women are certified to work with it. Dyeing by hand is a slow and laborious process but the results are exquisite as the indigo penetrates the core of the cotton yarns as they are repeatedly dipped into the vats of indigo. The combination of this unique technique and PBJ's textured denim results in a jean that is imbued with indigo like no other. It's a slow-release fade and all the more beautiful for it.

Important: The best way to determine the size you need is to measure a similar item you already own and compare with the actual sizing as per the table. Remember these are unsanforized/shrink-to-fit jeans so consider the shrinkage in calculating your size. The jeans will shrink 1" in the waist, 0.5" in the thigh and rises, and 2.5" in length. The waist and thigh areas will stretch back out with wear.
