Japanese Denim

The Japanese are known for producing incredibly high quality denim through traditional production methods. In the 1960s, large 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.
