Warm and hip- what more do you want for winter?

Winter is approaching... and every fan of Japanese denim wants to find a practical and comfortable wardrobe for this time of the year.

Of course, all over the world there are different climatic conditions and winter passes by with different temperatures. As a consequence, there are different requirements for clothing.

(In this article, we will focus on more the cold winter of the northern hemisphere :)

The cold season brings with itself the need of wearing jackets and the "middle layer", in the form of comfortable and durable Japanese knitwear, (about which we already wrote earlier!) , as well as reliable heavy denim of high density can be used.

Let's try some examples of these available for sale in Denimio. (Maybe these will pique your interest;)

Let's get started.

The small Tokyo company ENTRY SG specializes precisely in the production of high-quality Tsuri-Ami jerseys by the old Loopwheeller equipment.
