Kuro Stretch Denim – The Monster Stretch

This time, we are going to talk about Kuro stretch denim. The denim collection has always been Kuro’s most popular. And among them, they have the Monster Stretch.  They have spent two years to develop this product and it has a very special stretchy fabric.

 

The denim is made of the very fine stretchy strings together with other components. Yet, it still keeps a denim’s gritty, and cotton-like feel. Statistically speaking, a normal stretch denim has an expansion ratio of 130%. However, the Monster Stretch has 160%. So even tough it is skinny/slim fit, you can still wear them comfortably to move around.

 

 

The above video was taken in Paris, Jul 2019. It shows how elastic and durable the Monster Stretch is. This reminds us of playing a stretch monster toy, how about you?

 

The new collection will be available at ANDJOY soon. Subscribe us for the latest information!

What is Cuban Collar Shirt?

Cuban collar shirt is a kind of Summer shirt. You may also heard about it as camp, cabana, or revere collar shirt. They usually have open-collar and a boxy hem with relaxed silhouette.

 

Cuban collar shirt first appeared in the 1800’s in South America. They were uniform for the working-class. Its open-collar design cope better with heat and allow them to move flexibly when they work. Time after time, it has evolved from uniform to a fashion trend because of its relaxed outlook and comfort.

In the 1950’s, clothing stores sold shirts with different neck size – it was how shirts were measured. Yet, with the appearance of Cuban collar shirt and other open collar shirt, neck size become a less relevant measurement. That’s why you now find a lot of shirts are measured with chest size.

When you wear a Cuban collar shirt, we suggest to take a more causal approach. Simply pair it with shorts or trousers with neutral color tone. As they do not have a collar bend and feature an open-collar, we don’t wear them with tie.

Now, Cuban collar shirt appear in different forms. You can find them in long sleeves, tapered fit or even a smart causal outlook. You can easily find them in different fabrics like silk, cotton and linen. Some even put bold pattern and print on the shirt to give them stronger Summer vibe.
