Circle Tapered Fit Selvedge - 12.5oz Indigo Stretch
Japan Blue Jeans


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


If you take a look at a leather belt you've worn for a long time, you'll notice how it's no longer a straight line, but curved. This principle is behind the latest effort from Japan Blue Jeans with their Circle brand featuring a curved waistband.

These are the most contemporary denim we stock in fit and shape, with the curved waistband and additional tailoring giving the jeans a very dialed-in fit. The 12.5oz selvedge denim is a great year-round weight with a hint of stretch for mobility and comfort.

This fit is a very versatile, slim-but-not-too-slim, tapered jean with a comfortable top block and an attractive taper through the leg. 

Runs small. Wash cold, hang dry.
