When the Second World War, which started with the Anglo-German War in 1939 and lasted until 1945, many resources were diverted to military needs, and the lives of ordinary people were also strictly controlled by the authorities.

Of course, the impact on the clothing industry was also great, and workwear that had been competing with its own detail work and various patents was forced to be simplified, and it was a time when it was virtually obligatory to use ready-made materials that could be mass-produced or surplus materials. It was.

Jeans manufactured from 1942 to 1946 under this control were later called "war models", and although they are now prized for their rarity, they were sold at a low price at the time. It was something.

Denim fabric woven from 13.75 oz American cotton with an aspect ratio of 68 × 48 stitches is dyed with sulfur and reddish dark indigo to express the vintage oxidized texture. did.

Following the design of the time, the center loop is offset, punched rivets are used to reinforce each part, and heavy ounce denim with a slight stiffness is used to faithfully and modernly reproduce tough denim pants during the war.
