Ooe Yofukuten X The Bandanna Almanac | Project “Albuquerque”
Mi amigo más valiente bandannawanderings has done something maybe everyone should try once in their life: he made his own limited edition (20 pieces) denim line, the Albuquerque Jeans. I understand that they are made-to-order. I think my favorite detail is the Fast Color bandanna pocket-bags. He writes:
The Albuquerque concept came about unexpectedly while I was hanging out in Elephant Factory Coffee in Kyoto. Neil Young’s Tonight’s the Night album was playing in the background; the song “Albuquerque” was the inspiration. I wanted to create a pair of jeans from this setting. Something outside of the scene, totally personal. A touch of that road-traveling American spirit. Rugged and shibui. Something that would start a conversation or a debate. You can see the gallery of these being made here, and my write-up on Rawr Denim here.
