    Warehouse

    Answer : The model without a red tub was sold @ Warehouse first flagship shop back in 1997 (as far as I remember; Sorry it's almost 20 years ago so I may be wrong but I'm sure it was the model in 1997)

    WAYWT (denim version) 2016

    Yes.....Talon zippers could be nuisance sometimes. Modern zippers function better, I think

    My two N-1s are manufactured by Toys McCoy (purchased in 2006 and 2008) and they used Talon zippers for both, F.Y.I. P.S. my friendly advise - clothes moths really love N-1 because of its Alpaca/Wool/Cotton materials. Use the clothes moss killer you prefer and check regularly if there's any moths!

    Usually they use old dead stocks of Talon, which is not so difficult to find even in these days.

    Taking Care of the World Tour

    @Bobbo Glad to hear and see you enjoying your stay in Japland.....wish I could give you a guide tour in Tokyo area! (I wonder if there's still The Cracker Jeans in Tokyo)

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Well......most of sneakers are with vulcanized soles and difficult to have them replaced. So once they've been worn out, that's it.....but that's the fate unfortunately.....let's buy new pair! (although I like well-loved sneakers)

    RIVET & HIDE, London. Info etc...

    I'm Jap who just lives in the UK so can't tell them what to do.....just sitting on the fence at the moment. But I may have to give up my annual holiday going back to Japan this year because of plummeting exchange rate - instead going to Butlins then

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    Hi gang! Just wanted to drop a line about my latest acquisiton - Euro Levi's 70500 tracker jacket. Made in Italy circa 1998 and cost me next to nothing. 70500 is slimer and longer length than famous 70505 (3rd type) but more versatile to wear. This one was Italy-Made, but other 70500 could be made in France, the UK etc. For those who may be interested, here are the details......oh! by the way, happy new year! Overall - I'd say 65%-75% indigo left Paper patch Made in Italy circa 1998 Small "e" red tub

    Denime

    @bF I haven't tried Resolute jeans on yet but the reviews are quite good as if they're back to early Denime style.

    Denime

    @S.Mountain Both textures are finer than XX type and the cut is very similar to 66 type. The hue of Kyoto edition is much "bluer" than Tokyo edition - some people dislike the colour (and the fade) of Kyoto but apparently it is much closer to vintage Levi's, according to Mr. Hayashi.

    Denime

    It's nice to know that some people still love and wear Denime's Tokyo and Kyoto editions! I bought mine exactly 10yrs ago when I went back to Japan in 2005 - those were the days...... Now they became "Denim Hall of the Fame" in my wardrobe. Kyoto edition Tokyo edition

    WAYWT? [Denim Version] 2015

    You're welcomed.....F.Y.I. : you might already have known it that Porky's outsources their denim products to FOB, but it may be just a rumour (they didn't tell me, of course!) Ciao!

    I was impressed with the quality of Porky's jeans when I went back to Kyoto.......looking good in them!

    Denim shops in Tokyo

    Tokyo is constantly changing.......the shop you've been to today may be gone tomorrow......even I, Japanese, am gobsmacked how quick they change every time I go back...... P.S. If your time is limited I'd recommend Hinoya (and some other shops in the same area) in Ueno, and don't forget to ask for deduction of tax (8%) when you spend over 10.000 yen........
