A.PRESSE G Jean and shirt

IRENISA's LIMITED STORE is currently being held, and today I would like to introduce A.PRESSE. Because there is something amazing. Today, 2nd Type G jacket and one shirt. Neither are normal. It's been a long time since I've written something like this, but in the first place, do you know what the "G" in G Jean is? Both jeans and jeans are "G". The official name of jeans is "jeans", but the letter "G". Well, the most famous theory is that there was a common name for American soldiers called "GI" after the war in Japan, and the "underpants" that soldiers wore. That "GI pants" For short, It is most famous that it came to be called "G bread". However, it seems that the word "pants" did not exist at that time. In the West, trousers were officially called "trousers". That's why it seems unreasonable to say "the pants that GI wore". Then what? This word "pan" is not a word that means trousers in Japan, but it reveals the truth of society. Even now, the news is covering those days, but "comfort women". Without these women, the words "G-pan" and "G-jang" might not have existed as they do today. Maybe. It seems that the American soldiers who stayed in Japan at that time had a hard time. The only thing that could be said to have healed her was the time she spent with the comfort women. I think everyone can imagine what the American soldiers and comfort women would do. It is said that the comfort women at that time were called "Pan-Pan" behind the scenes, referring to the sound they made when they had sex. And "PanPan" did not only work, but also bought or received "jeans" that had not yet entered Japan from GI, and sent them to the market. to earn more income. Initially, it was generated from such a hidden society and gradually began to circulate in the Japanese market. "PanPan" obtains the jeans that "GI" wore, and the seller purchases them from "PanPan". Taking both "GI" and "PanPan", It seems that the word "G bread" was born. This is said to be the strongest argument. I saw it in some literature. I don't know if it's true or not. But I believe it will. The origin is an interesting one. So, today is the "jumper" that "GI" wore. First of all, I would like to introduce "G Jean". smile A.PRESSE's level is amazing again this time. Also, this time, for the first time in a long time, we will also introduce a microscope. on the shirt. A. PRESS 2nd Type Denim Jacket material_COTTON 100% color_INDIGO size_44,46,48 First of all. King of G Jean, 2nd. The last time I introduced you was the XX type jeans, and the processing is wonderful. But this time it's on another level. I don't know how many pieces Mr. Shigematsu of A.PRESSE owns, but the 2nd size of the original 50 size is equivalent to the size 48 of this G jacket. . This is dangerous. I was really impressed when I saw A.PRESSE's denim series at an exhibition half a year ago. Among the denim brands that I have pursued, there is no other brand that is making it at this level. Also, as I wrote at the time of the previous XX, there really isn't a brand that can produce uniform quality and turn it into a product. at this price. That's why I think it's good to have those who like it watch it this time as well. If you like the original, I think you will be surprised by this quality. Well, let me give you some details. First, this fabric. I think you can understand just by looking at this picture taken while I was sweating profusely and unable to concentrate due to the heat. perhaps. "Vertical omission" peculiar to things at that time. It doesn't fall wide, flat, and flat. Due to the quality of spinning and weaving at the time, this "unevenness" was unavoidable. This is reproduced with the quality of Kojima in Okayama Prefecture. Fluff, uneven color, twist. If you look at these details, it's a genuine vintage item in unbelievably good condition. This speaks to Kojima's excellent quality, which has been studied over many years. It's crazy. Okayama Prefecture. So, not only the fabric, but also the processing is real. Fade on the folded part of the upper collar that touches the skin directly, hit on the tip of the collar, hit on the seam allowance inside the collar. This one too. The seam allowances in various places are also perfect. Areas where the color remains dark and areas where the color fades. All the good points of the original individual owned by Mr. Shigematsu of A.PRESSE are completely reproduced. Triangular stitching is also present to match the distance between the double-stitched inner ring and outer ring of the front pocket. And I love this one, but it's a bite due to the twist of the seam of the body and the hem belt. This doesn't come out at all with denim fabric that has been "organized" in batches. This is it. Here, when you wear it and wash it, it gets twisted and twisted, and there is a bite, and the color fading will definitely come out if you don't wear it. That fade egg definitely, definitely exists. By the way, the term "seirikakou" means ・Shrinkproofing ・Singeing processing ・Skew processing Three. After weaving the denim fabric, it is applied in the state of the original fabric. I don't do any of those three things, and I like Kibata the most. I don't care. By the way, at first, only the buttons are shiny, but this seems to be the original A.PRESSE. It's a button made of iron, and it looks like it will rust over time as you wear it. Then it makes sense. Same as the original, with selvedge on the end of the cover. back. The front basically has a lot of orange stitching. However, yellow stitches are used on the back, sides, and arms. Was this the same as the original? I don't remember which parts were orange and yellow anymore, but how was it? Of course, depending on the original individual, I think there are oranges and yellows mixed together. this. Armholes with a mixture of orange and yellow stitches. After all, this color thread use is an eternal admiration for indigo color. I think this is a famous story, but if jeans were born in earnest on the East Coast (New York), the stitching would be navy or black, giving it a more sophisticated look. It wouldn't have been something that remained. That's what they say. After all, it is said that mass production on the West Coast (California), where the colors are bright, has become what has survived to this day. I think it's very important that the fabric is the same color or that it's not a single color but a color scheme stitch. Rivets, candome, specifications, complete at that time. Except for rusting iron buttons. So, the sewing specifications are the same as the original, "rolling sewing" on parade. I really like the scenery where the armholes are crossed with winding stitches from multiple directions. Because there is a mood that can never be achieved with lockstitching. Look. It's beautiful that the orange and yellow rolls are all over the place. Well, in regards to this G jacket from A.PRESSE, only the armholes are rolled with plain seams. Now, the appearance of the table is too real, and I don't care about that. It would be nice if you could think of it as quite a level. If it's an original, it's going to be very expensive in this condition, and it's going to be difficult to handle casually. Just like last time's XX, it's best to wear this on your own. Then you won't be able to distinguish it from wearing the original 2nd. The other day, a customer who purchased A.PRESSE's XX wore it. That A.PRESSE was really, real, and I mistook it for the original at the time. It will be on that level. A.PRESSE's denim series. I won't wear jeans this time, but from tomorrow, I'll wear a G-jeans. And one more thing. shirt. A. PRESS dog ear shirt material_COTTON 85%,CASHMERE 15% color_WHITE size_2 only this. I was really looking forward to introducing this shirt to everyone. The base is an old Ralph Lauren stand-up collar shirt owned by Mr. Shigematsu. but,,, A.PRESSE's other biggest feature is not only vintage reproduction. Originally, making ordinary things "best". That's what I'm talking about. this shirt. At the exhibition at that time, Mr. Shigematsu of A.PRESSE told me, "Fuku-chan, look at this." So, I wonder if there were about 3 colors lined up? Among them, only one fabric that I couldn't take my eyes off was this one. I've never seen fabric like this before. And the fabric that looks funny as if the eye is an illusion. I habitually look not at the surface of the fabric, but at the inner part of the fabric, such as its structure and thread usage, but as usual, when I tried to look at it that way, I couldn't focus. . I can't see what I saw. smile I don't understand the meaning of that kind of fabric. Plus, it's cotton-based. According to Mr. Shigematsu, it is made from Swiss ALUMO fabric. The fabric that I don't know when it's from, I didn't have a lot of fever at Alumo. It seems that there is a lot of unknown information about the fabric, but Mr. Shigematsu seems to have bought all the rest. I'm sure he said that. The fabric was a perfect match with the rare Ralph Lauren shirt that was the base. Sure, it's a checkered fabric that's not cool at all, but it's an ultra-luxury fabric. this. 85% cotton is Swiss cotton. And the remaining 15% is cashmere. That is the "blend" fabric that is mixed at the cotton stage. A check made up of colored threads with multiple colors on a white background. You can't tell from the picture, but it's a fabric that emits an unobtrusive glow from the depths of the depths. This will surprise everyone. Should be. Swiss ALUMO boasts not only the usual shirting technology, but also the "raising technology". I didn't know it, but ALUMO seems to have a good technique to brush the surface. Soft and fluffy twill weave with a blend of cotton and cashmere. At the same time, it also incorporates a mysterious phenomenon that I encountered that makes it difficult to focus on the back of the fabric. The softness and feel of the best part, and the flannel that doesn't look like a high-end flannel. I didn't really understand when I saw the sample, but when I saw the microscope at the store this time, I understood the reason. I felt this. Although it is "flannel" which is a blend of cotton and cashmere, it is overwhelmingly beautiful. It's perfectly balanced, and the thread itself shines. Cotton threads are divided into "carded threads", "combed threads", and "compact threads". I don't think so. When this happens, the thread itself "shines" despite the fact that the thread itself usually loses its luster. you're kidding. It's the first time I've seen this. The level of lightness of the thread is comparable to that of GIZA 45, which was sold at our shop at the beginning of the year. Not only the white thread on the ground, but all the threads are shining. And the soft, gentle fluff and even weaving. This is crazy. Look. Look many times. Expand further. Even though there is fluff, even the fluff is shining. you're kidding. this. In addition to that, Mr. Shigematsu from A.PRESSE. Aiming to further improve comfort, the interlining of the collar and cuffs all incorporate a soft "plush core". That's why the collar and cuffs are already swollen due to the effects of the one-wash wash. Moreover, the pattern matching is perfect. By the way, the button is a matte shell button. If you have this in your hand, you may be able to take this opportunity to graduate from flannel shirts. That kind of level. Well, the price is over 90,000 yen, so that hurdle is still there, but I think this is a shirt you can't find anywhere else. This is the only cotton flannel shirt in our store. G jeans and flannel shirts are not in their current state, and it is best to wear them, wash them, and use them. The G Jean looks more like the original. As for the shirt, it will feel like you can't take it off. Wash repeatedly. Amazing luxury. A.PRESSE will go on sale tomorrow, Thursday, August 11th.
