Hey all,

Welcome to UES Denim,

We are a Japan based raw denim maker.

Our brand name “UES†derives from “waste†in English. Japanese people often reuse old clothes as dust cloths to extend these usages and call it “UES†since early times. We keep on making our products in the hope that you will use our products until the end of its life. Neither throwing them away nor, keeping them in the closet without being fully-used.

Browsing our website so that you may get a better understanding of our concept and products.

Feel free to ask any questions here or contact us at [email protected]

UES stuff is great.

I met Tomohito Inomata at the Daikanyama store recently, and was very impressed. Definitely one of Toky's best smaller shops. Note that they also do beautiful kids' clothes too.

thanks!

Both are made by Zimbabwe cotton but 400R is a little bit heavier, the weight is 14.9oz while B401-XX is 13.7oz.

B401-XX have a high rise while 400R have a middle rise .The patch are also different too.

Since UES B401 series are no longer produced, so I suggest you to try a pairs of 400R. I attached an unwashed 400R photo for your reference.

How much stretch can I expect in the waist on 400S? I really like them but I would have to size down one or two to get the fit I want

great denim fabric and hardware. Wish the 401xx cut is still in production. :)

I don't think sizing down on these is a good idea unless you are really skinny. the measurements for the 400s look pretty slim already from the size charts

The front rise measurements look a little bit suspect to me - 23cm (9") for a 32" waist size seems ridiculously low.

I would be all over a pair of the 400R if it was not for the low rise. A shame as the cotton thread is a divine colour.

thank you for the information, the construction does look top notch and denim also looks real nice, but like many others the rise is just a bit too low for my liking. can't deal with low rise these days anymore. would be nice if you guys still made the B401-XX with the 400R denim and detailing... it looks great!

having said that, i am still looking forward to picking up something from your store. happy holidays!

The B401-XX with the 400R denim sounds good. Thank you so much for your suggestions.

This waist bag is very handy for cycling or town walking with empty-handed. Zippers which are equipped on top and front sides made opening and closing easier to use. The picture shows difference between three years old and new one. Color fading of pucker is impressive. And also touch became soft.

Hi,I would like to introduce the Boston bag.

Boston bag is very popular for convenience and UES style design. There are many pockets on the outside, and red selvage lines are arranged at the both sides of a zipper.Our customer brought this to repair. Warp in the fabric, puckering around handles and edge of pockets, many parts got fading. It’s so cool. We appreciate he loves it for long time.

Our measurement is different from other denim’s brand.

Below is the page of our measurement guide.

http://www.japaneseselvagejeans.com/rainbowcounty/size/size-en.html

We measure the length and the inseam and the rise is equal to

Length- Inseam= Rise

So, If we lay the jeans out flat and measure from crotch seam to top of jeans with top button fastened,

the front rise should be +around 3cm.

^ And if so, could it have a front rise above 10" please?

Another question: in Lightning's Denim Book, your member of staff is wearing what looks like a UES type III jacket with incredible contrasted fading. Any plans to bring this jacket back?

Hi, the rise of the new model will be much higher than the current one. :)

Me too. The fading examples in the book are stunning and really have me looking forward to the forthcoming higher-rise model from UES. I love the philosophy behind the brand.
