The 'slim-tapered' collaboration refers to the legendary Big John M1002 from 1967 made from a 14.5 oz fabric. By reducing the dyeing of the Kaihara fabric by 25%, the factory emphasized the traditional bright blue color that is referred to in Japanese as 'Ruri'. The yellow selvage is a tribute to the traditional 1960's fabric made by Cone Mills.
