Yamaei Keori is a weaving shop in Aichi Prefecture whose name I have mentioned many times on this blog.
The fabrics from tilt The authentics, which I introduced the other day, and those from AUBETT are both woven by Yamaei.
Speaking of our store, there are many other brands that make original fabrics at Yamaei.
And I am also currently having the fabric made for me. lol
Well, it will still be a while before people see it.
I'm planning to introduce Yamaei Keori in detail around next spring, but when it comes to Japanese woolen fabrics (woven fabrics made from animal fibers), there are two names: "Yamaei Keori" and "Kuzuri Keori." "I think it's Japan's top two.
Well, there are some things I like.
Both Yamaei-san and Katsuri-san have completely different characteristics.
Sanei Keori Co., Ltd.
Yamaei Keori's characteristic is its "double-opening low-speed rapier."
This loom is said to be the only one in the world.
This loom was by far the slowest of any loom I had ever seen.
When it comes to wool, it's Shonherr.
In terms of cotton, it's a shuttle.
Yamaei Keori's "double-opening low-speed rapier loom" completely overturned my previous notion that these two looms were the slowest.
Well, I'm planning on properly introducing that in the future.
What we would like to introduce to you today is a brand of pants made by Yamaei Keori himself using fabrics he has woven himself.
Until the previous season, he had a different name, "HAKURO".
Originally, I had heard a lot about Yamaei Keori and the president, Mr. Yamada, from various brands.
And fortunately, since I keep mentioning Yamaei-san's name, Yamaei-san has known me for a long time.
However, there were various considerations, and we decided to start at a time when the brand name was changing.
This time, there are two types.
Let me introduce you.
material_CASHMERE 83%,WOOL 17%
color _ GRAY
First of all, this.
This time, it is the highest quality product that we have developed as EGRETIQUE.
More than 80% of the mix is cashmere pants.
Since the fabric is made of fabric, the hurdles seem to be too high, so the series will only be produced in a limited edition of 20 pieces.
So, the moment I saw it, I was captivated by its quality, and I told Mr. Yamada of Yamaei Keori on the spot that I wanted all 20 pieces, but apparently that was difficult.
Therefore, the quantity was lower than I had hoped, but there are an amazing total of 5 sizes, and it feels like our store handles more than half of the production quantity.
However, since it is divided into 5 sizes, there is no depth for each size.
First of all, the shape is of a model that did not exist even in the Hakuro era.
Within the brand, there are various variations such as tapered and wide, but a new model called "CASUAL" has been introduced.
Well, this is the first time we've had this at our store, so there's no way to compare, but I think it's a nice shape.
As for details, the waist is an easy type with elastic.
There is no opening in the waistband, but there is a zipper in the front.
This is a metal fastener with a large number of fastening teeth that works well.
I've been wearing them for a while, and the zipper accommodates my speed when I pee in a hurry.
It's suddenly gotten colder lately, so whenever I drink coffee or something like that, I suddenly feel like going out for some reason, so I've had a few dangerous scenes, but these pants are perfect for those pee-inducing scenes. They responded.
But, well, the fabric.
This is a brand that carries the title of ``Sanei Keori,'' which Japan is proud of.
They use super awesome fabrics.
That was the moment I saw it.
As mentioned above, the material is 83% cashmere and 17% wool.
The texture is plain weave, which I love.
The warp is made of cashmere and wool.
Cashmere and wool for the weft.
The warp and weft are the same thread.
That thread is extremely special.
The base is cashmere.
A very thick cashmere thread made of No. 5 singleton wool.
It's the fifth largest cashmere.
Cashmere is an ultra-fine fiber.
The fibers are bundled together to create a bulging, extremely thick yarn called the 5th yarn of "wool spinning."
Number 5 cashmere is the thickest thread I've ever heard of.
I broke the record for the 15th cashmere yarn from AUBETT the other day.
Mr. Yamada of Yamaei Keori also said that he made No. 5 cashmere because there was no such thing as high-quality cashmere.
A base of high-quality, extra-thick cashmere yarn is wrapped around a double-stranded worsted wool yarn.
The base is 5th singleton cashmere.
Wrap a fine worsted wool twine around it.
It was a fabric that I had never encountered before, with the bulge of cashmere being subdued with worsted wool.
So I definitely wanted to introduce this.
This is it. this.
Because it is dyed before it is made into fabric, the color has depth and is not a sticky color.
A total of three threads, a single cashmere thread and a double wool thread, are tightly woven into a plain weave.
The surface is smooth wool.
The fluff that overflows from there is cashmere.
The contrast between the unconcealed bulge of cashmere and high-quality worsted wool.
This is very comfortable in winter.
I promise that everyone has never experienced it before.
Because I was like that too.
Well, since the thread itself is thick and the cashmere has fluff, I thought I wouldn't be able to see much detail, so I used a microscope.
However, the density of the driving is quite solid.
Thick thread tends to be too dense, but after all, it is a low-speed rapier with a double-ended opening.
The yarn itself has a firm bulge that makes the most of the material, and as Mr. Yamada of Sanei Keori said, the warp is ``double-opened,'' so the weft is inserted between the warp and the warp. It has a lot of density.
This is quite important.
The texture of the material is perfect and the texture is properly carved, which is not something that every weaver shop can do.
It's a fabric that allows you to experience that very much. this.
The back has a square patch pocket.
Separate fabric is attached to the back of the pocket.
All hems are semi-finished.
Therefore, the hem will be adjusted according to the length of the person who purchased it.
Of course, you can shop at the store, but if you have difficulty coming to the store, you can go to a repair shop near you, or if you would like to have it done at our store, please contact us.
In terms of sewing specifications, the outside seam is split over.
Inside seams are interlocked.
It doesn't have extremely high-spec sewing specifications, but it is sufficient.
The back is the back specification of the first half.
The lining is 50:50 cotton and cupro.
The lining doesn't feel cold because it contains cotton.
Cupra 100 lining can get cold in winter.
On the quality display, it is a cleaning mark.
Well, I don't recommend it, but cleaning.
I placed an order with the assumption that it would be washed. Our store.
Well, it's better to wash by hand if possible.
There is nothing attached to the back of the back side.
It is a specification that allows you to feel the best of cashmere fabric as it evolves from the new stage.
Even when it's brand new, this fabric has an extremely unique potential.
There may not have been a fabric with this much potential in recent times.
After all, the weaver shop calls it ``special fabric.''
Well, Price is outstanding even among EGRETIQUE, but I think this quality far exceeds that.
Regarding the size range, since the length is semi-finished, it would be nice if the owner could set it according to the size, but it would be nice if the owner could choose the size according to the waist.
XXS waist 67cm~
Waist 73cm in XS
S size waist 77cm~
M waist 81cm~
L size waist 85cm~
It's like that.
I'm an old man and petite, so I'm XXS.
The waist is made of elastic, but it doesn't feel like it stretches too much.
The fit around the buttocks and waist has also been taken into consideration, so some people may feel it gets caught on their hip bones when putting on and taking off.
However, I think it is better to choose a smaller size if possible.
So I'm also a size XXS.
If you do that, the outline of the EGRETIQUE pants will look great.
So, this. I think it was about 3 weeks ago.
I've been using it since it started getting cold.
It was so comfortable that I ended up sleeping in my pajamas a couple of times because it got really cold at night.
Thanks to my lower body.
Even with heavy use, the fabric itself is dense, and thanks to the lining of the front half, it won't slip out of your knees or buttocks, so you can rest assured.
So, I washed it once.
It's hand washed, not a washing machine.
I could have dived into the washing machine, but I wanted to experience the slow change of cashmere.
I measured the dimensions before and after washing, but there was no difference in the width.
Only the length had a vertical shrinkage of 1cm.
Well, I just washed my hands gently.
If you wash it hard in the washing machine, it may shrink even more.
Overall, I think woolen cashmere has blossomed a little.
Also, by washing it with water, it felt completely different to my skin than when it was brand new.
It's already melting. The fabric.
As expected, the swelling has increased, so the warmth has also increased accordingly.
I think the eyes will become even more clogged in the future, and the melt-in-your-mouth touch and gentle warmth are guaranteed to be waiting for you this winter.
oh yeah. Regarding the finishing of the hem, I think that most pants of this type are usually finished with a hand-stitched hem.
However, since the fabric is thick and I was planning on washing it, I decided to finish the hem with a lock stitch so that it could withstand heavy use.
Stitch at 2cm from the hem.
Then, fine play.
Due to the feel of the fabric, the stitches are no longer buried.
Therefore, it looks the same as a blind stitch, and is the most durable, so I think the single finish with a lock stitch is the best in this regard.
Height: 167cm, weight: 51kg, XXS. It looks nice, doesn't it?
Well, it's an outline that I don't think there are that many people who dislike it.
Experience the quality of the materials.
CCP (COTTON CASHMERE PEACH)
material_COTTON 80%,CASHMERE 20%
And here's another one.
As before, it is a model called CASUAL.
Both the warp and weft are a blend of cotton and cashmere.
This means that each material is blended at the fiber stage before it becomes yarn.
The thread itself contains cotton and cashmere.
The cotton is Supima organic.
Therefore, the cotton has a very gentle touch.
Since it's a blend of cashmere, it's a yarn that adds a lot of softness and warmth.
This fabric is quite distinctive in the difference between the "front" and "back" fabrics.
This is the table.
This is the back.
The outside is made of peach skin, which means it has a soft, brushed texture.
However, the back looks quite tight.
Even when viewed under a microscope, the difference is clear.
Countless fine hairs stand up.
It's a very well-balanced brushed hair.
This is the back.
The texture of the fabric is firm.
Mr. Yamada of Yamaei Keori says that in order to make pants that can be worn securely in the fall and winter, the warp and weft are designed to have a 3/3 twill, with 3 threads submerged and 3 threads exposed, and the thickness of the fabric is increased. is out.
The thread that looks navy is Supima, and the thread that looks brown is cashmere.
If you look at the back, you'll notice that this is a much tighter fabric than the cashmere ripple, so I think it will be very tough to wear.
It has firmness, holds its shape well, and is incredibly comfortable to wear.
The quality label also says that washing is prohibited, but once you wash and use it, you will be able to feel the incredible potential of the material.
Because it's cotton-based, you'll notice not only wrinkles and sagging, but also the surprising bulge of the tightly-tight threads.
Designers from brands all over the world continue to visit and use Yamaei Keori's fabrics.
Their technology, ability, and quality of the fabrics they produce are unparalleled.
At EGRETIQUE, you can fully experience the double-ended low-speed rapier loom and the fabric design unique to Yamaei Keori.
