SP-065 - Relaxed Tapered G3 Series 40th Cherry Blossom


Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Studio D’Artisan SP-065 40th Anniversary Cherry Blossom G3 Series is produced in the Relaxed Tapered fit with a true high rise, featuring a roomy seat and thigh with a strongly tapered leg and a narrow hem. This extremely limited and unique 14 oz. unsanforized Japanese Selvedge denim utilizes a Kusaki-zome traditional dyeing method that has been passed down since ancient times in Japan, which uses natural extracts from plants. To represent the spring season, this edition leverages pigments obtained from the bark and branches of Cherry Blossom trees for the weft yarn and combines with a deep indigo warp resulting in a soft mauve-taupe cast denim that will fade with the delightful irregularity provided by nature. This fabric is produced on the vintage G3 shuttle loom, which is one of Japan’s original 50-year-old power looms made by Toyota that runs at extremely low speeds and requires hand operation to function. It yields a lower tension fabric with heavy slub yarns that have a rough texture like the denims of yesteryear’s workwear, with irregularities that will patina quickly and uniquely. Made in SDA’s newest Relax Tapered fit, these jeans have 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 vintage-style fading while forming and draping nicely to the body of its wearer after the first wash or soak. Topped off with signature and 40th Anniversary Studio D’Artisan touches like the commemorative furoshiki wrap, specialty embossed leather patch, herringbone twill pocket bags, embossed copper riveting, a blackened brass button fly, and a chainstitched waist, seat, and hem, these jeans are your first step on a journey of style presented to you by a 40-year-old producer of heritage denim.

Studio D'Artisan Denim runs slightly large, and for the G3 Series we suggest sizing down roughly 1-2 sizes from your actual waist size. 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.
