D1839S - Relaxed Tapered Amami Dorozome Mud Dyed Selvedge Denim


Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Studio D’Artisan D1839S is made in an adapted Relaxed Tapered fit with a true high rise, featuring a roomy seat and thigh with a strongly tapered leg and a narrow hem. This jean is made from an exclusive, unsanforized 14 oz. Japanese Amami Dorozome Selvedge Denim with a Mud Dyed warp and weft produced on one of Japan’s original 50-year-old power G3 looms made by Toyota that runs at extremely low speeds and requires hand operation to function. This results in a lower tension fabric with heavy slub yarns that have a rough texture like the denims of yesteryear’s workwear, with irregularities that will soften quickly with a unique patina. The intensive 1,300-year-old Dorozome mud dyeing technique is performed in the local iron rich soil baths of the small island of Amami-Oshima using completely natural extracts derived from the sap, wood chips, and mulch of the native Japanese Hawthorne tree. This D1839S Mud Denim is an all-natural, style forward heritage collector’s item coming in SDA’s refined Relaxed Tapered fit with a higher rise and more drastic taper to the leg that accommodates thicker calves while maintaining a narrower hem. This rare and intricately produced low tension shrink-to-fit denim will develop an earth-based patina while forming and draping nicely to the body of its wearer after the first wash or soak for a completely personalized fit and fade. Topped off with specialty Studio D’Artisan touches like a commemorative embossed natural leather patch and duck canvas pocket bags, combined with signature details like embossed copper riveting, a blackened plated brass button fly, and a chainstitched waist, seat, and hem, these jeans are your first step on a journey into the past by way of present styles, transported to you by a standout 40-year-old producer of heritage denim.

The Studio D'Artisan D1839S runs true to size, and we suggest sizing down roughly 0-1 size from your Actual Waist Measurement. This denim is unsanforized “Shrink-to-Fit” and our rule is: Size in order to have enough space to fit your hand in the waistline (+1-1.5" from normal), allowing for natural shrinkage (roughly 1.5” in the Waist and 2” in Length) from the cold soak/rinse process before wearing.

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