    anybody that has a problem with their jeans being sewn by a person from Thailand rather than Japan need to take a step back and examine their way of thinking.

    Dov is back with a new brand, Los Angeles Apparel.

    So it's a Japanese brand started by an American mill named after a Chinese province. Cool!

    Canton is supposedly the first Japanese denim brand, established in 1963 and at some point went bankrupt. Japanese retailer 1LDK is now bringing back the brand -- below copied from their blog: “POP UP CANTON®OVERALLS at 1LDK PARIS” “CANTON®OVERALLS” “The POP-UP of Japanese Denim Brand CANTON®OVERALLS revival of the legendary XX Denim. “ CANTONⓇ produced the very 1st Japan made Jeans in 1963 CANTONⓇ is a pioneer Jeans brand based in Japan – making Jeans with imported genuine U.S. made material and using the UNION SPECIAL sewing machine.They are authentic in every single detail with their TALON zips and SCOVILL rivets. In 2008, around half a century, CANTONⓇ changed their brand name to CANTON OVERALLSⓇ to make a fresh start.Clothing needs to be seen as a daily tool based on work wear. Pursuing practicality leads to user-friendly ideas, removing unnecessary details and thus creating unique designs and specs.This will definitely become a good tool to be passed on to the next generation.This is the sprit of the former CANTONⓇ, and we make our clothing based on this philosophy. About XX Denim XX Denim (Double-X Denim) stands for denim produced by two US textile companies, Amoskeag and Cone Mills, from the late 1800s till 1960s. The stream of technical innovations in the 20th century left a tremendous impact on the textile industry, bringing forward various generations of XX denims with different appearances and textures. The existing, unwashed fabrics called “Dead” have also developed different looks depending on storage environments across the ages. ref:http://canton.jp/1963xx/ We 1LDK PARIS are luckily having an opportunity to bring the legendary first Japanese denim brand to our store. It is not just only the ages they have had but during half of the century they have spent, they were experiencing the invention and evolution in their work. http://1ldkshop.com/blog-paris/
  9. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I got into denim in 2004 or 2005 and was bored by 2010 after living in Tokyo, where it became so normal, and after seeing the whole lumberjack trend blowing up in EU and NA. Just now starting to get a little more excited again, and also think that forums and blogs will be coming back after social networks have pretty much taken over. I do still love Instagram, though.

    This just popped up on Facebook
  11. Instagram

    I just realized that a couple of people I follow on Instagram regularly post things that I'd never otherwise have the opportunity to see, even if I was living in Tokyo and venturing out to vintage shops every single day. This guy below is a collector and posts a lot of great garments from his collection. So I just thought we could use a thread to share the best post and accounts to follow. Let's see what you've got!
  12. Red Cloud & Co. jeans

    @volvo, those RC436s remind me a lot of the 1937 Warehouses (forgot the model name), quality and detail wise, like how they sewed the backpockets. Is this a discontinued model?
  13. Overcomer

    There's a guy on Instagram who I think is Overcomer's founder - https://www.instagram.com/brucedu1981/ Stealing some of his pics; apparently he has a bunch of 1970s small es that they look at for inspiration.
