Fabric: 20oz unsanforized American cotton selvedge raw denim woven by master weaver Oishi-San in Japan. Rope dyed with pure indigo. Cut and sewn in Japan.
After my successful purchase of the 507KHN’s I was feeling comfortable with Denimio’s sizing chart. I was eager to get my hands on ONI’s “Secret Denim”. I heard Mr. Oishi is the only one who knows how this fabric is made. So I put in another order and 4 days later the package arrived!

First Impressions: This fabric defiantly lives up to the hype. The hairiest and most neppy denim I’ve ever felt! Not as slubby as the 506KHN but I think thats a good thing. It would probably be overkill. The slub that is there is mostly in the indigo warp and gets a bit over shadowed by the nep and hair. The brown weft seeps through the warp. It’s a mossy looking denim. The loose weave gives the denim a nice think feel. Rough, ridged and a little scratchy. Seems like it will get very soft in the years to come.
Putting them on, the fit of the waist, rise and thighs is perfect.
There was a little extra room in the legs and some length I wanted to get rid of so I hot soaked from around the knee down.
They shrank more in length than width. The after pic’s have one less roll in the cuff.
Will update you on the progress on these beautiful jeans.
