We have been working with Ryo and Hiro Ooe of Ooe Yofukuten since 2014, and are their sole stockist outside of Japan. To mark the opening of our NYC store, we asked them to use up the last of their exclusive XX3 denim to make a run of extra-special OA01 jeans for us. 

They make everything in a small Japanese town just outside of Nagoya using a collection of rare vintage sewing machines. Ryo is the pattern maker 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.  The fabric is just like a pair of vintage Levi’s, the needlework is flawless, and the buttonholes are absolute perfection - each a mark of the craft of Ryo and Hiro.

Note: If you pick up William Gibson’s Zero History, around page 364 (at least in my copy) you’ll find this paragraph:

“Someone had suggested I talk to this couple in Nagoya. They had an atelier there, above a little warehouse on the outskirts of a place called Ichinomiya. I can tell you that because they’re no longer there. They were making jeans there, in deadstock fabric from a mill in Okayama. Depending on the length of the roll, they might get three pairs of jeans, they might get twenty, and once the roll was gone, it was gone. I’d heard they’d also been buying canvas from that same mill, Sixties stuff. I wanted to see it and, if it was good, talk them into selling me a few rolls. They’d tried it for jeans, but it was too heavy. They were lovely people. There were stacks of samples of their jeans. Old photographs of American men in workwear. All of their machines were vintage, except the one they used for riveting. They had a German Union Special chain-stitching machine. A 1920s belt-loop machine.”

These are unsanforized, and will shrink considerably after the initial soak. The waist will come in about 3" and then stretch back out to tag size. The inseam will lose 2.75" to 3". Take your actual waist size for a slimmer fit, or size up to the next size for a roomier vintage fit.
