Ooe Yofukuten is the most special brand in our shop, and we've been working with them for several years now.
Ryo and Hiro Ooe, husband and wife, make garments in the Japanese countryside using a collection of rare vintage sewing machines. Ryo is the patternmaker and cutter, Hiro does the sewing. Their dedication, focus and level of detail is superlative. The waistband label sums up the soul of what they do: "We wish to express our gratitude to all people involved in this work."
The production is very limited by nature, and they have developed an international cult following over the years. When you hold a pair of Ooe Yofukuten jeans, it may take a moment to notice the subtle details.
These jeans are subtle themselves, as close to as an elevated classic as we've ever held. They are all about the details, not the detailing. The fabric is just like a pair of vintage Levi’s, the needlework is flawless, and the buttonholes absolute perfection - each a mark of the craft of Ryo and Hiro.
This latest release of their OA02 fit is in their new unsanforized OAXX denim, which is a slight evolution from the prior batch with a grey weft, and little bit more texture. They'll fade out to an even vintage blue, so don't expect sharp contrast fades with this denim.
The waist will stretch back to the tag size after repeated wears (a size 36 will measure 18" laid flat). We suggest sizing +1" from your usual denim size.
This run had more shrink in the length than expected, and so they are all around 33 to 33.5” in the inseam.
Please consult the size chart carefully, and if you have questions, please contact us.
