Ive been researching SugarCane's M-Series on and off for years..it's 99% complete but still a bit of a work in progress..
First up are the 'MP' codes, from what i can gather they originated around the late 80's, there used to be some bits of helpful info on 90's era Japanese blog sites, Geocities and such, sadly nowadays its all been lost or archived...
XX replica, redline denim, offset loop, what look like a boxy 50,s cut.
Circa 90/91, white/silver line, off set loop but look more like a '47' cut
101Z 'Cane's' Riders released from around 1990/91
Lee 101, Pinkline, 'Union Made Cane's' button
None of the MP models have a patch. Production of the MP codes ends before 1992.
I have seen an article in 'Made in Japan' magazine referring to the 1991 release of the M41001 but that was retrospective having been published in 1998, there must have been a few years crossover period.
Next up the early 90,s product codes
Late 1800's Repro, No back yoke
Late 30,s 501XX using a 13oz white line denim
These came into production in the early 90,s and gained a cloth patch around 1997, There is also a M41030 with standard 'Toyo&CoSPL' fly
Early 90's Laurel leaf model, late 40,s silhouette, 50,s details, pink-line denim
1997 cloth patch model, both of these pairs are a 50's repro/details but their silhouette is more 47-esque, most unlike the wide/boxy, exaggerated SC-55's
40,s Repro 101-B 14oz denim
1936 101 Cowboy Hair on Hide
Mid 30,s 101 Cowboy
For comparison here's a deadstock pair belonging to Mr. Takahashi of Junky who also reproduced this pair.
Another comparison of the pinkline denim types through the generations
Worth noting that the M41001 & M41030 are 1" undersized comparred to the SC-47's and shrink 'from tagged'
M41001 Tagged 32
SC-1947 Tagged 32
