Good evening. This is Ikeda.
The typhoon was terrible yesterday and this morning.
Both the rain and the wind were so strong until dawn that I woke up several times and had a hard time falling back into a deep sleep.
Best of all, I wasn't sleep deprived.
This is the time when I can clearly say that I hate the rainy season and typhoons.
I'm really guilty of wishing that time would go by faster at times like this.
There's no point in saying I don't like it, I don't like it, so I put it aside, and on the other day, I safely collected my fourth printed T-shirt of the season.
You might think that I only buy things like that, but I'm a greedy person and hold back on SS items, so please forgive me for such a reward.
I don't think anyone is interested in my shopping situation, but I would be happy if there was even one person who could share what they like.
In addition to the brands we have selected, if you have any other favorites, we would be happy to hear from you.
It's possible that you don't have any knowledge of some things, so if that happens, study up and start again.
As a sinful and greedy person, today I would like to introduce you to Yamauchi's mud-dyed 120/2 super strong twist broadcloth items.
It's an item with a completely different depth than sinful or greedy.
First, let's talk about common fabrics.
The material used is 100% Supima cotton from Enshu.
It is finished with a 120/2 gas-fired high-density textile made from Supima's 120-count cotton yarn with a ZZ twist.
ZZ high-twist yarn has a heavier yarn density than regular yarn, giving the fabric a loose feel.
This gives it a different look from regular 100% cotton, and it becomes a very unique fabric with a crisp texture and a cooling sensation to the touch.
Here, they have achieved this with a finer yarn count, but it is said that ZZ strong twisting with a fine yarn count is extremely difficult, and there are very few factories in the world that can achieve this.
I'm kind of proud that a domestic brand, let alone a brand that we carry, is able to make this happen.
The fabric is dyed with mud from Amami Oshima.
The wood chips are boiled for two days and dyed using a dye produced by fermentation.
Not only is it dyed with that dye over and over again, but it is also dyed in the mud of Amami Oshima to achieve this deep color.
It is also unique in that it has a dry texture.
There is a little more detail on the item page , so if you are interested, please take a look.
Don't you think that the expression "brown" is more appropriate than "brown" for the color taste that has been made with such care and effort?
I have no problem with either.
Also, the mud dyeing process makes the fabric feel a little stiff, but it gradually becomes softer as you wear it.
Not only that, but the color will gradually change, so you can enjoy watching it change over time.
In terms of functionality, it is also great that it has deodorizing and insect repellent properties.
Cargo pants and shorts are made using this carefully selected fabric.
Cargo pants are created by removing elements from the so-called cargo pants.
Therefore, it does not give you the rugged feeling that you would expect from cargo pants.
However, the deep rise, slightly thick silhouette, and thick drawcord at the hem give it a very good balance of casualness.
I have a deep respect for Yamauchi's approach to craftsmanship, which uses fine, delicate stitching to create products.
The other pair of shorts has an elastic waist and a drawcord for an easy fit, but also has a center crease and double hem, giving it a classy look.
In addition to the not-so-thick silhouette, the center crease gives it an atmosphere that doesn't look childish.
Perhaps these are items that make you want to become an adult with deep thoughts, even if they are sinful and greedy.
Although he is not always able to write deep content, please check out Yamauchi's 120/2 super strong twist broad items, which have a deep heart that is the complete opposite.
