Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Japan Blue Circle Series J301 Straight 14.8 oz. US Cotton Medium Indigo is a modern slim tapered fit with a medium-rise and a moderate seat and thigh that gracefully tapers through the leg to a narrow hem. This proprietary 14.8 oz. Indigo Selvedge Denim is vintage shuttle loomed in Kojima, Japan, at moderate tension in-house using select 100% US Grown Cotton fibers. Artisan hand-washed to replicate several years of wear with subtle fading patterns, this slight slub denim with an indigo rope-dyed warp and natural weft has immediate comfort, drape, and a vintage character that will continue to personalize with wear. The Circle Series development is part of the Japan Blue agenda to innovate heritage goods through fits and fabrics to yield quality, modern selvedge jeans for a broad application of lifestyles and body types enabled by proprietary denim, a curved waistband, and clean detailing. Finished with elevated components and production standards, these jeans boast an embossed natural vegetable-tanned leather patch, heavy-duty twill pocket bags, an aged brass steel button waist and brass zipper fly, aged brass rivets, signature blue inseam thread, bartack reinforcements throughout, and a chainstitched waist, seat, and hem. These Japan Blue Circle Series denim will serve the daily duties of fashion-forward and heritage enthusiasts alike with a contemporary, holistic quality.

Japan Blue runs true to size, and we suggest going 0-1 size down from your Actual Waist Measurement (Body). Made with sanforized and washed denim, most shrinkage is removed. With regular use and after 1-2 washes, one can expect to gain .75-1" in the waist long term.

We recommend consulting our Sizing Guide and using our Virtual Size Chart.
