yeah, the model name is different. the japanese one are number series like Levi's ( 503, 505 etc). the european one are ed-XX or have regular names (nashville, etc). as for country of manufacture, i'm pretty sure some european models are made in japan.

Check out Edwin's japanese website, cause the prices are much cheaper than elsewhere (most expensive pair's about 110$) and they have really nice washes (no way you can find something that nice for anything close to that price).

if you want to order from japan, either use a proxy service like www.bid-service.jp

or, 2000db is also having a similar service starting next month, but for smaller fees

otherwise, some rakuten store will deliver outside japan, check out this thread, loads of info there

but at 130, 150 CAD, it's probably cost the same to get them there, not to mention that it'd be easier and faster

When will Cali have them?

Also, I just picked up a Nashville from the UK and it was made in Tunisia. I wear a 36 and sized down to a 34. Will these shrink a lot if I cold soak them for a few hours to remove the excess indigo?

Mine didn't seem to shrink a whole lot when I washed them at the six-month mark...although they don't seem like the sort of cut you'd size down for usually, so I'd be inclined to leave them unsoaked. They don't lose indigo as easily as, say, a pair of Edwin Sens would. When I washed them, the water turned a bright turquoise rather than the murky brown I've seen with some other raw jeans. I'm surprised yours are made in Tunisia -- I had thought the Nashvilles were Edwin's only guaranteed Japan-made jeans.

I thought the Nashvilles were made in Japan too. I was surprised to see they now made elsewhere. I'm still looking for a pair that are made in Japan, but I think I will keep these for now. They were on sale.

I sized down since the actual waist measurement on the 34 was 36". If they won't shrink much, or will stretch out, then I'll keep them.

I just wanted to know if they'd shrink to 34" tag size on a cold soak.

hmm...mine are also tagged 34, but they do seem looser about the waist than other jeans (I'm looking at you, Imperials). I never thought to measure them. They'll definitely shrink a bit if you soak them, but as I said above they don't shrink dramatically. I didn't have to stretch them back out again after I put them on for the first time post-wash or anything; they just fit a little more snugly for a few days.

Are they the indigo raws with the cinch on the back? I've had these for about 2 months and i love them. Though they probably will be replaced once i get my imperials but give me a private message and i'll take a pic of the fit.

I'm getting either a raw nudie or edwin...a lot of price diff and am just wondering will the edwin fades as nicely as nudies?

Better man! Another reason, edwins are not as common as nudies from what i've seen and are more appreciated here...

Edwin Nashvilles -- Nine months of wear, washed once after about six months. A few repairs around the crotch area made with indigo threads plucked from a raw offcut...seems to work fairly well if you can nip the rips in the bud, but it's a bit time-consuming.
