ONI 02527P Kiwami 16oz Type III Denim Jacket - Rinsed


ONI’s new Kiwami range has been expertly woven to produce that characteristic slubbiness that we all know and love so well. Never ones to be outdone, the brand have used the traditional method or rope dyeing the yarns in natural indigo, giving this unique 16oz denim a brilliant range of fading possibilities. The loose weave of this fabric allows a great range of movement, which, for a heavy denim, makes this jean surprisingly comfortable, breaking in brilliantly after just a couple of wears. Natural indigo farming has has sadly become a lost art, worth now only four or five indigo leaf farmers in operation Aizumi-cho area, but the craft stands head and shoulders above their synthetic counterparts and produces a quality indigo colour which is unrivalled. 

This brilliantly crafted Type III jacket in the Kiwami range is a magnetic blend of tradition, and modern design ideologies. The classic jacket shape has been met with the 16oz slubby denim to refresh a time tested classic. Although this jacket is a slimmer fit, it does feature two slip cut pockets on the side for added comfort and convenience, a feature which might normally be reserved for boxier cut versions. Two buttoned top pockets are present on this model, and the button plate is made up of as set of custom made, vintage inspired donut buttons in an antique brass colour which delicately matches the dulled thread colours. This jacket boasts subtly nuances of detail which can only be revealed once it has been broken in. On the surface it is a potentially timeless piece of design, but it bears the possibility of becoming a a garment which is uniquely yours when worn and washed over time.
