Unknown Japanese Brands

Recommended Posts

The Steam Locomotive has been mentioned on this thread previously. I've always thought of them as a plain Levis repro, though I can't read any of the japanese to see if they've done anything different (and for some reason or another, google translator has been acting up). The silhouette doesn't really do it for me. I like jeans a bit more slimmer.

Here is the link to the page about them on the Steam Locomotive site. I'm having some difficulty deciphering the sizing chart and also am mildly perplexed (and slightly turned on) by the fact that the model seems to be a woman...

Any other jeans these seem to be similar to measurement-wise?

Those look really good, that 36 inseam definitely puts them on my radar. Is it a very traditional cut? And do they do a 66 repro? I can't tell from the site

Just found out about those, I really dig the name and the leather patch is bad-ass!

Whoa! Those are yours? Can we get some details? As you can see in this thread, I've been geeking on the D62s for a while but never pulled the trigger. Watchman--I think the D62s are the closest they have to a '66, but I was never 100% sure about the measurements so that's why I never ordered them. I'm due for a new pair and this has re-sparked my interest.

No, man, I wish these were mine.I got that picture off the G-a-r-d-e-n site. Do they ship internationally BTW?

As far as I figured it out with Google Translator they offer 3 cuts, tight, bootcut and straight leg, but ,yeah, measurements seem fucked up. I guess they are not sanforized, but I'm not sure at all.

G-a-r-d-e-n does ship internationally and they DO take Paypal. I had some correspondence with someone there regarding the D62 (the "tight" cut) and the only thing I really got out of it was that I should order them in the same size as I wear in the SD-103. Maybe that helps.

yeah, i understand the history of it, they have a lot of stuff with swastika's in vietnam too. The Nazi one is crooked, but the traditional one is not. Still not much of a differential for me to rock it though

I thought the OG Buddhist one was counter-clockwise and the Nazi clockwise like the one on the jeans? Fuck asian nazi hipsters.

Hmm that tight cut sounds tempting. I think a nice, middle weight RHT from a brand nobody has seen may be perfect for my next pair.

Thats what im talking about too, ever since this thread first came about ive kept looking at the slim ones ( D62XX ), really nice jeans from the slideshow pics, the fabric looks kinda eternal/tfh esque to me, check out the shot of the fabric on the regular model - http://www.j-e-a-n-s.net/cgi-bin/item/A1/a1-165.htm , looks like a tight weave, mmmm.

They also do a cordovan wallet!

Although I probably wont ever get around to getting them, they dont have enough gimmicks, and what with slim omnigods, slim sugarcanes ( on the horizon ) and the 6x6 skulls all tempting for when I replace my PBJoo5s with other slim jeans.....

Dope & Drakkar stuff looks interesting. Can someone shed some light on them?

ninja jeans

something i ran into while surfing around. tight-fitting selvage denim that looks quite promising. the theme is ninja, and they even have extra cloth in rear right pockets which create throwing star fades as people wear them. might be a bit on the gimmicky side, but thought they're quite interesting nonetheless:

OG ones run either way

The proportions of a traditional one are not fixed (straight, curved, thin, thick...), while the Nazi swastika is right facing, based on a 5x5 grid, and is almost always oriented at 45degrees

Whoa! Great find. I don't know anything about so many of those brands. Unfortunately the website isn't very informative...

They don't look as slim as I initially thought they were, which is weird because the website says they're a '66. Perhaps they weren't soaked in these pics.

First, this is the wrong thread for your question. Second, this has been discussed before a bunch of times. Do a search for "options for buying Japanese denim" and you'll see a whole list of stores pop up. If you have more questions, you can post a question in that thread. Good luck.
