The ‘EX’ in this denim’s name stands for Extra Slub, which is hardly surprising when you get a load of the richly textured fabric that Pure Blue Japan have managed to weave here. The weave is somewhat reminiscent of PBJ's flagship ‘AI denim’ with its rain-like appearance and vertical, slubby yarns. Once you soak these jeans, the slubby and tactile nature of the fabric really begins to shine. We can’t wait to see how these things fade.
Model wears 31w jeans. He is 185 cm tall and weighs 78 kg / 6 ft 1" and 172 lbs.
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 below. Do not go by tagsize alone. After an initial soak this jean will shrink 1" in the waist, 0.5" in the thigh, and 2" in the inseam. The waist will stretch back out 1" with wear.
