We've been waiting for this release all year... Sugar Cane has put together a limited edition capsule collection for their 55th anniversary using their years of knowledge of indigo dying to create some very unique garments.
As part of this collection we have a pair of jeans and a Type I denim jacket, both made of a new 14oz Japanese selvedge denim made of 30% sugar cane fiber and 70% cotton. The warp yarns are dyed using a natural plant based green cast indigo mixed with a traditional indigo giving the denim a unique deep shade of indigo. The hand feel of this fabric is quite special as the combination of the sugar cane fiber and the warp's natural dye gives the denim a feel and look we've not seen before. Other details include hand dyed natural indigo pocket bags, hand "painted" natural indigo dyed deerskin patches, and copper branded rivets (which will rust as they age over time).
Along with these two items we also have a Sugar Cane developed seersucker fabric that's yarn-dyed with pure indigo mixed with an indigo-black pigment dye to create a subdued seersucker pattern which is made into a short sleeve summer shirt.
All three of these items are available now at all stores and online.
