The war model is fully released from the "THE VANISHING WEST" label.
On December 1941th 12, World War II broke out, involving the entire world due to the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese army.
After that, until the end of the war in August 1945, it had an influence on the continental United States in the form of restrictions such as price control and material saving.
As was the case in the history of jeans, a number of products commonly referred to as war models resulted in distorted and enthusiastic details that occurred under the regulations, creating a wide variety of combinations. It will give off a special shine.
It can be seen from the vintage war model that the simplification (SIMPLIFIED) by the detailed specification change remains until the middle of 1946 after the war.
The 1944-1945 War model of this product is a peculiar model that is exactly the constraint of the constraint, the regulation is the strongest, and many details are omitted and simplified.
I haven't searched for such threads in Japan or overseas to make the denim pants of the late 1940s that Freewheelers is aiming for.
The big difference from other denim fabrics is that they are made from yarn, that is, from spinning and cotton.
The silhouette is about halfway between the 1947 and 1951 Freewheelers products.
■ The fabric is intentionally changed to a dark indigo dye that does not easily fade, and by rejecting the restriction of lowering the ounce and increasing the count of the conventional warp yarn, a slight ounce is raised as a result.
Because thick threads are used for the warp threads, you can enjoy a hard vertical drop feeling.
Since ounce down impairs durability, it is released aiming for high quality and durability by maintaining the toughness of work clothes during wartime and maintaining thick count thread and skill / process for sewing.
■ Details that are particular about reprinting the war model
