Product Description
Full of character and break-in potential, our denim features a once-in-a-lifetime fabric from Yoshima Mills in Japan. Intricate detailing and an impeccable fit set these 100-percent made-in-Japan jeans apart.
Handcrafted Japanese Denim Like No Other

By now, we’re no strangers to raw denim. Having teamed up with brands like Naked & Famous, Raleigh Denim, and USDG, we know what it takes to make a great pair of jeans—and the Drop Ibara Slim Rinse, our first solo denim project, is just that. Handcrafted in Japan from start to finish with fabric from Yoshiwa Mills (a boutique outfit that specializes in small-batch production), our jeans are filled to the brim with character. The fabric is a rare 15-ounce Japanese selvedge denim with three yarn widths for deep color and texture. The fit is an always-on-trend slim taper that’s as comfortable as it is flattering. Rounding out this everyday essential is YKK Japan hardware, a natural deerskin patch, and a classic double-selvedge button fly.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of sizes 28–42, including sizes 35 and 37. All jeans come with a 34-inch inseam.

High-Comfort, High-Character Fabric

For our first pair of in-house jeans, we explored many options before landing on the perfect fabric: a 15-ounce Japanese selvedge denim with low tension, high character, and medium slub. Designed for quick break-ins and gorgeous wear patterns, the fabric comes from Japan’s Yoshima Mills, a well-known establishment for denim heads around the world. Woven with three different yarn widths, the denim has an open-face construction and a warp yarn variance that brings out excellent contrast. Though it weighs 15 ounces, it behaves more like a 19-ounce fabric in terms of texture, feel, and fades; and it behaves like a 12.5-ounce denim in terms of comfort. All in all, it has enough structure and depth for an elegant look, but becomes incredibly soft and buttery as you break it in.

A Timeless, Flattering Fit

The fit is just as important as the fabric in a great pair of jeans. That’s why we worked with some of the best developers and fit models in the denim industry to get the Drop Ibara Slim Rinse just right. Cut with a relaxed slim-taper fit, these jeans are easy to wear, highly complementary, and always on trend. They feature a roomy top block and thigh, an elegant taper from the thigh to the leg opening, and front pockets that are a good depth yet close to the body to keep your things in place. While these jeans will go on stiff, they’ll open up quickly with wear and a first wash.

Howdy! I hate to chime in so late, but I noticed that you frequented this drop. Have you purchased a pair yet? If not, at $70 I think you should jump on it. On a slight tangent, there are a few reasons why buttons are better, but they are possible opinions. A zipper will have two layers, the two pieces of fabric that zip together covered by a flap of denim. A button fly has three layers of fabric, a piece used to attach buttons, a flap that the buttons go into, and the cover flap. In my experience, the button flies are at least warmer, while maybe not air tight. More layers of fabric help though. Ive also has zippers fail, and it’s almost impossible to repair. You can repair button flies much easier. A lot of the raw denim fanatics, wear jeans for many years and rely on repairs to have the jeans last that long. I could probably tell you what everyone else has about the details that will go unnoticed by everyone around you. You feel the difference in quality when wearing a pair of jeans made by a skilled craftsman rather than a sweatshop. I like raw denim because most companies are ethical and pay their craftsman a livable salary. You pay more for it, but it’s worth it. Mass produced companies don’t pay their employees nearly what they deserve. The quality (in terms of details) are lacking from mass produced companies since it’s time consuming and labor intensive. Denim in this realm is purely detail oriented and for most, it’s just a normal pair of blue jeans. For people who understand the processes the manufacturers have to go through to produce a pair of jeans like this, it’s more like a display of passion. Even though that display is through a random as a pair of jeans. Also, Japanese denim is top tier even compared to America who founded the denim jeans we all wear now. At $70 and you can return, it’s a bargain. Hope this helps! ps. I have more arguments for buttons flies if you want to debate ;)
