TCB Jeans S40, one of the most iconic styles by Japanese vintage denim king Hajime Inoue. An identical repro of the legendary S501XX, rinsed in Japan for a softer feel in the 14oz raw denim fabric.

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.

When Hajime started TCB in 2012, he was more fond on the standard vintage styles like the Levi’s 501XX and ‘66 models because they appeared to be perfect for him as he started out making jeans. As Hajime got more and more skilled along the way in how to make jeans and gain more knowledge about how to faithfully reproduce vintage editions, he started to find more beauty in the imperfections these jeans had. Hajime’s meticulous level to detail is what has brought, or perhaps resurrected, these S40 jeans, which are a detailed reproduction of the original S501XX.

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.
