The Kibata denim series from 3sixteen is the unsanforized installment of the brand's signature 14.5oz fabrics. Hailing from the famous Kuroki Mill in Okayama, Japan, this critically acclaimed fabric sports a rougher and hairier surface texture than its sanforized "Shadow Selvedge" equivalent. This pair of jeans, worn by store friend Jake Morrison, proves that frequent wash cycles can still produce high-contrast fade results. Washed 5 times in 8 months, the jeans were worn while working construction, producing great signs of wear on the legs and top block.
