” Ijin versus Ninja “Â is the working title of an exclusive garment collaboration between two independent and free spirited creative labels: Ijin Material , the left field denim label designed by Philip Goss,Â presents two limited edition dry ” Ninjin ” legs “, designed exclusively for Ninja Tune , the hugely influential london based record label, whose artiste collective offers such legendary namesÂ as Coldcut , and whose regular Solid Steel radio show mixes are aural collectors items.
These dry denim jeans are produced in a unique run of only 200 pieces, and are offered in a choice of embroidered logo back pockets :Â â€œNinja Maskâ€ or â€œSwarm of Eyesâ€ .
The â€œNinjin â€œ leg is a regular fit ,12 ounce , ring/ring denim leg, offered in 2Â denim coloursÂ : blue-black indigo & black denim.Â They are cut using the innovative â€œwrap-leg â€œ cutting technique , specialised by Ijin Material , where the outseam of the leg is cut folded & the hip fitting is sewn into the waist with a dart.
Basically each leg is cut as one piece, leaving no out seam below the knee & consequently a totally clean-finish chainstitched hem , when turned up. The trademark top button is always hidden , the coin pocket is reinforced with specially sewn mini ninja mask rivets , inside seams are taped & they even come with double leather waist labels.
The mini range includes two sweat shirt and two tee shirt designs and is initially available from the Ninja Tune web store & selected outlets from May onwards , while stocks last.
