We've got a hot one this week from Sugar Cane and Whitesville.
Sugar Cane AWA-AI Denim release #1 is here! Here we have a very special 70/30 cotton/sugar cane fiber denim jacket made to showcase natural indigo dying techniques from the Shikoku Island of Japan. This jacket's fibers were dyed in collaboration with the Edo-Blue Revival Association, which preserves Japan's ancient dying techniques. These jackets have a natural indigo fiber warp, a natural weft, a natural indigo dyed deerskin patch, and discharge printed inner pocket flap facing. We also have jeans and two shirts from this same series dropping next week.
After taking a ten year break from carrying Sugar Cane’s 1966 jean we’ve decided to bring them back. This model is a classic cut modeled after what the original 501 was like in 1966. An amazing and timeless style; this cut stays true to the original from the rivets to the paper patch to the custom weaving of the period-correct 13oz double ring-spun selvedge denim produced on narrow shuttle looms, including a color and weave matching to the shade of blue utilized in the manufacturing of the original 1966 jeans.
We've always loved Sugar Cane's version of the classic 1950's style Type II denim jacket. They've gotten the denim feel right, the stitching is perfect, the iron buttons are classically reproduced, and the deer skin patch ages just as well as the denim itself. We're happy to have these back in stock at all stores.
Lastly we now offer Whitesville t-shirt 2-packs in navy! These are now available at all stores in four colors at all stores along with all the new releases.
