Crossback Jeans - MIJ10V
Crossback Jeans - MIJ10V
Made in Japan 10 Years Virgin (MIJ10V): These jeans have been designed exclusively to commemorate DENHAM's 10 year anniversary in 2018. They're cut from a 12oz, fine-spun, 100% Japanese cotton with a 24-dip, deep-dye indigo warp.
Japanese denim is some of our most premium product. It's made by artisans who use old school shuttle looms and arduous, time-consuming production methods to create amazing results.
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, this jean is packaged in a furoshiki wrap. "Furoshiki" is an ancient Japanese tradition, whereby silky cloths are beautifully wrapped around boxes, small objects and bottles. It's also a sustainable alternative to using plastic or paper bags. DENHAM's furoshiki wrap features a unique katagami stencil artwork.
Selvedge refers to self-finished edges — roll up the cuff of your jeans to have a peek at the fabric's edges. It’s a technical term that stems from old school shuttle looms; selvedge is a symbol of quality and authentic craftsmanship.
"Virgin" is DENHAM’s name for the purest form of denim – it’s denim that has been dyed and woven, but hasn’t undergone a pre-wash. This type of denim fabric allows the user to create a completely unique, personalised wear pattern over time. Virgin denim can be pretty stiff when you first put it on, but over time it will break in as it forms to your body.

"A Decade of DENHAM"
Watch the video
This season marks the launch of DENHAM’s 10th Anniversary celebrations. We’ve revisited our favourite designs from over the years, and reimagined them with modern updates and fresh new details.
As a nod to Jason Denham’s English heritage, this collection is inspired by iconic British military regalia and khaki uniforms. Key silhouettes — like trench coats, bomber jackets, blazers and cargo shorts — are combined with luxurious materials and unique patterns.
A homage to the Japanese flag
‘Japan has one of the most educated denim markets in the world,’ says Jason Denham. ‘They have, I think, some of the best materials and best denim, especially in the raw selvedge kind of fabric.’
In the 1960s, the big American weaving mills switched from narrow 29” looms to more efficient 55” weaving machines. As the Americans phased out the laborious ‘old school’ method of production, the Japanese purchased the old machines and have continued using them to today. They have since combined traditional American qualities with their own touch: the best yarns; the most rigorous standards for dyeing and weaving; premium fits; and the highest attention to artisan detail.
691 stitches in every DENHAM scissor logo
For Jason Denham, scissors are a symbol of his craft. Throughout his career he’s collected thousands of pairs – each with a unique story and past. But there’s one scissor that’s the most important: his first pair, which inspired the brand’s iconic logo. Every pair of jeans in our men’s collection is stamped with this trademark, which is meticulously crafted from 691 stitches.

The Truth is in the Details
By Jason Denham
I’ve dedicated my life to making the perfect jeans. They’re my passion and my pride. Like a chef, I hand pick all my ingredients: I study tradition and technique, and obsess over every detail. I honour heritage and authenticity, while bringing a modern twist to my craft. I believe ‘The Truth is in the Details’ and every pair of DENHAM jeans tells a story – one that evolves every time they’re worn. I’m excited to share in this journey and story with you.
