The 17 Oz Heavy Slub was first introduced back in 2019, and it surely does become one of our integral part in Oldblue’s denim selection. With it’s slub and extra bumpy texture, it captures the heart of many.
The 17 Oz Heavy Slub Okayama was made by our partner mills in Okayama, Japan. Weighted at 17 oz. / sq. yard, this probably be the one for those who’s looking for a heavier denim. The denim was constructed using a very thick slub yarns, resulting such rough irregular texture.
And as the fabric is unsanforized, you can see clearly all the bumps, hairs, and uneven textures with your naked eyes. As many people says, pictures tell a thousand words. So let the pic do the talkin’.
The dungaree sports Oldblue’s signature details such as; the looped arc on the bac pockets, the hickory lined front pockets, two-tone chainstitched hem and Oldblue’s signature coin pocket stitching.

As usual, these tiny little details holds the same detailed attention as others, we don’t compromise any quality. Trimmed using our signature Scovill USA open top buttons in burnt copper finish. Reinforced with 100% copper rivets also from Scovill Fastener Company. The leather patch was made using our signature leather that we’ve faithfully utilized since 2011, the veg-tanned horse strips from the widely known Horween Leather Company of USA.
It’s our signature 8.25″ Cut. If you’ve been following us for a while, you would know what this means.
It falls somewhere between the slim cut to the regular straight cut. It starts quite slim in its thigh area, hugging a little closer than a regular straight cut will be. And it will be straight down from the knee, calves to the hem with basically no taper. Another key note of this cut is in its medium rise built. So it will give you a roomier and fuller kind of top block.
A cut that is our most versatile (and most-experienced) cut that’s able to fit various kinds of body type.
