TCB Jeans 505 One Wash, a nice retro fit by Japanese vintage denim king Hajime Inoue. Made from a lighter indigo dyed denim fabric and featuring a slubby surface and 1960s details.

The Japanese brand TCB Jeans, a.k.a. Two Cat Brand, is known for its extreme attention to detail when it comes to crafting a pair of jeans. Founder Hajime Inoue has an extensive archive, and knowledge, of vintage denim garments which he researches to recreate certain, iconic styles from past decades but also to develop the best possible modern style jeans. All steps of the making process are done in-house, including: weaving of the cotton on vintage shuttle looms, rope-dying the thread with natural indigo, pattern making and cutting, construction of the jeans and the finishing.

The 505 One Wash is inspired by vintage jeans from the 1960s, when denim started to become more commercial in use. These jeans have a slim straight cut with a taper, and sit higher in the rise. The fabric is made from a 13oz San Joaquin cotton to recreate the same type of fluffy surface in the fabric as it used to have in the 60s. The lighter indigo tone is achieved by less heavy natural indigo dipping, and also a reference to how indigo colours were approached since the 60s. As denim was no longer strictly workwear, the deep navy colour that prevented showing oil stains or dust was no longer an absolute must. The jeans have had one wash in Japan, to get a pre-shrunk fit.

Please note that (raw) denim in (natural) indigo might bleed on light surfaces and textiles such as white sneakers or an off-white sofa. We advise you to turn the jeans inside out and soak it in a bucket with lukewarm water for 30 minutes, before the first actual wear. This way you rinse out a bit of leftover starch and indigo plus it takes out the final bits of shrinkage. The bleeding of indigo, as it is known as, is a characteristic of quality denim and will also occur during the early stages of wear.
