For Denim Bruin 2016, we asked Ryo and Hiro to make a limited run of jeans. We requested that they simply make something that spoke to them, and expressed their love of vintage denim. The Hercules Never-Rip Overall was the result, and we have just a couple of pairs left on hand from this very limited run.

The jeans are inspired by Hercules overalls from an 1890’s catalog. The fit is straight, but not too loose, with a buckle-back and suspender buttons. The rise is a little higher than modern denim, and easily wearable with a looser fitting shirt or coat.. They are constructed with a continuous fly for strength, which is a clever manufacturing trick which takes a bit of skill to pull off cleanly.

The star of the show is the new patent-pending Time Machine treatment used to give the 9 oz selvedge denim the look and feel of true deadstock fabric. Picking these up, they feel like a pair of jeans found in the back corner of a dusty feed store somewhere in Nebraska, forgotten about until now, with a dry hand and a slightly greenish tint.

These run small, so buy 1 sizes up from your usual waist size. They will stretch out to tagged size with wear.

Further details

Everyone’s got their perfect object that they chase. For one of us, long before the shop happened, it was seeking out the perfect pair of jeans. That led us down the inevitable road of Japanese denim, and into the horse-trading world of buying (and selling and swapping) online.

Over time, we learned more about the brand; and about Ryo and Hiro, as more details surfaced. They are true obsessives, also chasing the perfect object. It started with one pair made with a pattern from a cut-up pair of vintage 501s, and quickly escalated into a shop full of pre-1930s Union Special machines. These days, even their denim is made to order for them in Japan.

The word “craft” is tossed around quite a bit in our industry, often being distorted to cover even fully-automated factory production. Ooe Yofukuten couldn’t be farther from that - every garment is made by two pairs of hands, one at a time, all in their workshop in Aichi, Japan.

Many years after coming across that first pair, we are the first stockist of Ooe Yofukuten in the US, and we can’t be more pleased to have them join us.
