Today rag & bone launches the RB15 Aoyama, our first ever limited edition, individually hand-processed men’s jean.
A must-have for guys who take their denim seriously – and are quick off the mark; only 76 hand numbered pairs have been produced - here is some background information on the RB15 Aoyama…
Named after a neighborhood in Tokyo, the RB15 Aoyama, originates in Japan.
The 14 ounce, 100% cotton custom selvage denim is created at the Nihon Menpu
mill, one of the world’s most premium denim mills, using old fashioned shuttle
looms for a clean selvage edge.
At rag & bone’s exclusive factory in Los Angeles, the RB15 Aoyama is sewn, incorporating original rag & bone details, including hidden rivets at the back pocket and triple needle top stitching at the back yoke and inseam.
The final process occurs in Henderson, Kentucky where Dick Gaines, one of the denim
industry’s most respected developers with 26 years artisan laundry experience,
hand processes each pair individually in his studio.
