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.
The Viola Devil. We think the name says it all. It’s hard to keep our eyes away from its spectacular purple weft part. The purple yarn-dyed weft is able to complement the ‘regular’ indigo face splendidly, to say the least. As you can see from the above photos, the combination of indigo and purple weave resulted in this magical and mythical deep tone. We kept the denim on its loom-state / unsanforized finish so that you’d still be able to cherish its pristine fabric character n’ texture.
Weighted at 15 ounces / sq. yard, this mid-weight denim loomed in our Japanese Mills partner. If you remember our infamous 15 Oz. Deep Indigo line up (the regular weft, brown weft, and indigo weft), this denim was made with the same fabric construction and from the same Japanese denim mills. So you might have an idea or two on how the denim will divinely evolve with wear.
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.
