I know this is normally a "small questions thread" but this community isn't what it once was so I would love to talk to the people who still browse here.
I reckon the people that still come here are relatively old school denim heads as there's quite a few different denim communities now than there were before (reddit, facebook groups, instagram, etc.,)
For me I'm probably sticking to the Japanese brands that I've known about since I started browsing superfuture and learning about raw denim. My 3 favorite brands are probably Momotaro, Pure Blue Japan, and Studio D'Artisan.
Although I don't actually own jeans from Momotaro I own their jackets and accessories and I like their details like the pink selvedge as well as the battle stripes - captures a little bit of the Evisu painted stripes in a more understated way.
I love Pure Blue Japan for their fabrics - again, ironically I don't own a pair but everytime I try on their pants I am quite impressed. Also quite like their logo and how it's incorporate onto their jeans.
Studio D'Artisan I'm also a fan of, I think they nail the repro stuff.
Honorable mentions to Sugar Cane and LVC. Sugar Cane for affordable price points, Levi's for being the original.
