In July of 1965 Toyo Enterprise, the parent company of Sugar Cane, was commissioned to make a limitedÂ run of jeans for the U.S. Military PX.Â At that time Toyo Enterprise had been producing Aloha shirts for the U.S. Military PX but this order marked Toyo’s first entry into the production of denim jeans. The pair of jeans pictured are of an actual pair from that order along with a copy of the order sheet issued by the U.S. Military PX to Toyo Enterprise. In recognition of this event in Toyo’s history Sugar Cane has released the Union Star Jeans. The denim is 14.25 ounce selvage denim made from the finest 100% double ring-spun Zimbabwe cotton and includes details such as iron-made buttons, deer skin leather patch, and redline selvage.
