The JBO-0212 "Low Tension" was introduced in 2012 as one of the earliest installments in the Japan Blue x Blue Owl Workshop collaboration series. With wear, the deceptively textured surface becomes more apparent, as seen on this beat up pair from Ben Templeton. These lived-in 14oz jeans were routinely worn while hiking and camping, accumulating heavy amounts of mud and dirt. Upon repair, the jeans were accidentally darned with yarn that matched the color of the dirt and not the weft, ultimately leaving multiple discolored areas that were lovingly accepted and continuously worn.
