Azuki Is Now Open On Sunday's!

To insure our customers that we are constantly thinking of you, shop hours are changing in response to a variety of emails and notes Azuki has received thus far about our not so fortunate hours of operation. We do apologize for any inconvenience and any further issues that this change may cause our customers, but we are improving our shop hours starting Feb 3rd.

Azuki

Made in California

Azuki is not only thrilled, but we are very satisfied for the opportunity to bring San Jose, some of California's best in threads and stitching. Rail Car Fine Goods comes straight out of Arcadia, CA to define high quality denim through their own appeal. Consisting of a small group of individuals who take big pride in every process they accompany their denim with, Rail Car is cut, sewn, and finished under one roof. No outsourcing, no foreigners, Rail Car denim is manufactured quality and construction.

Rail Car uses both American cone mill and Japanese denim fabrics. In setting their own standards I meant to say their design is integrated for a more comfort wear, and extra crisp fades. For Men's, we have the Spikes, X005, X009, and X014 which all sport a straight slim leg, medium low rise, varying between 12-16 oz pending the pair.

Along with the Spikes, we have our first couple pairs for the ladies. Yes..the beautiful ladies who prefer it raw, and tight. Rail Car offers 2 cuts, Donna x001, a 13.5oz American cone mill red line selvage pair, a favorite of most for the high waist fit.

2 tone button design, signature "R" at the fly, chain stitched bottom hem, triple tone stitching, and two piece waistband to achieve upper/ lower fades.

Another option is the Viper X008, a straight slim leg with medium low rise for women. Features an 11 oz cone mill 2 % stretch fabric, soft white line selvage for a clean finish.

Again, Azuki is very proud to be the first retailer for Rail Car Fine Goods in San Jose, we continuously strive to bring our city the best in threads one cut at a time. Thank you for all notes, and support, we do read them all. As a matter of fact, our denim is slowly progressing towards our online shop, give it a minute.

Japan Blue Monster Denim Has Arrived

The first denim drop of this new Winter season comes from Japan Blue Jeans.

Restock on some favorites in Skinny and Tapered fits, and two new highly anticipated pairs we have all been waiting for here at Azuki. First off is the Tapered 16.5 oz Monster Denim.

This is currently the heaviest denim in stock by any brand we carry.  Dyed deep indigo blue & made from the purest Japanese fabrics.

Blue stitching down the inner legs, and a red line selvage caps off this monster as a pair of beauty. Next is the Tight Straight fit 14 oz black on black selvage denim.

A little something different from the usual indigo, Japan Blue for the first time presents their first black on black denim, in a Tight Straight fit.  Features red line selvage, with mainly all black dyed fabrics, a truly elegant piece of denim.

All available now in-store, and by phone orders only. Any questions, please feel free to give the shop a call (408) 320-1230.

Azuki Welcomes Japan Blue Jeans to San Jose

Relative to the brand structure of Momotaro, Japan Blue brings a slightly different personality to their denim with the simplicity of today, yet keeping a modern look. The brand believes strongly in the creation and development of their own cotton and yarn. "Material is a key factor to jeans" is the motto here. Little details and care towards how denim is constructed guides you to a more stunning finished product and better denim etiquette.

Japan Blue is available in three cuts, Skinny, Tapered, and Tight Straight. 

Tapered cuts pictured above. The pair on the left is made of U.S. cotton 14.8 oz, while the right pair is a mix consisting of Zimbabwe and Memphis cottons 14 oz. Japan Blue uses red and blue line selvage stitching; all pairs available are vintage selvage.
