After 4 years of hiatus, Oldblue Boneyards collection is finally resurrected from its dark resting place. Boneyards collection is an unfamiliar denim issue n’ collection consisted only with one-off denim articles made with rare and dead-stock (or extinct, or last roll) fabrics sourced from all over the world. Each of the Boneyards’ runs usually consists of exceptionally limited pairs of jeans.
For the Boneyards Dead Roll No. 5, the chosen roll was this exceptionally rare 21 oz. / sq. yards heavy-weight denim fabric from Kuroki Mills, Japan. This heavy-weight denim is by no means your run-of-the-mill heavy denim with only its numbers to be shown. To start things off, this rope-dyed indigo denim was made using extra-long staple cotton. The longer the staple, the finer and the stronger a fibre is. Hence, the higher the quality. One of the main characteristics of ELS cotton is its soft and delicate hand-feel.
So, combining heavy ounces with ELS cotton and the sanforizing finish will provide us with the best of both worlds. You can get all the favorable values of extra-heavy-ounces denim (the thickness, the durability, the safety) in an extremely comfortable and pleasurable wearing experience. Due to its heavy yet delicate nature, our 7.75” Cut is a no-brainer choice to be its base fit n’ pattern. The first impression we got was like our legs were shrouded and snuggled by a dense and cushioned blanket.
This current edition of Boneyards collection is completed with a brand-new leather stamp design. The leather itself is our signature leather patch material we’ve been using since 2011; the natural veg-tanned horse-hide from Horween USA. The other trims that built this denim are the Oldblue’s special customized burn copper buttons from Scovill USA and the 100% copper rivets from Scovill USA.
