These aren't as durable, as they were once built, it seems.
I got about 4 weeks/1 months of wear on them, got them DS a few years ago.
Threads on the right back pocket are already popping in places, plus a hole is forming on the bottom of it.
Thread start breaking beside the crotch-bartack, plus a hole is forming in the crotch.
All in all comfy and cool jeans, though.

@beautiful_FrEaK the 1946, of course

I’d had them on my radar for some months, but wasn’t particularly taken by any of their styles—when they announced this one it seemed like an easy call

I’d noticed BUAISOU over some time and finally decided to splash out on one of their t-shirts in dark indigo… and a very nice, solid thing it is too with a depth to it.  They also have indigo and light indigo versions... interested to see how this develops…

Thought they had been discussed here before but couldn’t find anything so here’s the blurb…

“To “thrive in the hometown of indigo dye,” BUAISOU was established in Kamiita-cho, Tokushima Prefecture in 2015.

All processes, which were traditionally divided into separate specializations, are carried out within BUAISOU; from cultivating the raw indigo, fermenting the indigo leaves (Sukumo), dyeing, designing, all the way to production. We also make efforts in introducing the charm of natural indigo through offering workshops and other various activities.  Indigo dyeing is characterized by deep beautiful color and fastness. This is achieved using only indigo leaves, lye, bran, and shell lime.

In 2018, we were able to realize our original dream of making hand-dyed indigo jeans. BUAISOU’s future goal is to grow our own cotton and weave it by ourselves.”

Pretty. Requires selling an organ, but pretty. 
 

edit- I guess that this is the significantly less expensive pair that they sell.

Loooove BUAISOU...They have one of my favorite instagrams and frequently show how they grow the indigo, the dyeing process, etc. Also you can get a peak of how their denim will fade as the workers typically wear their clothing while doing all that labor. Follow their IG stories for more!

 

Here you are @MJF9, I thought @JDelage had one of these t-shirts too.

Yes, I do have one of their dark indigo t-shirts. It's quite lovely; I'm very happy with it.

@JMS - I have one of those Two Moons sweat. Mine was a sp. ed., garment dyed indigo. It's nice enough and was great value. I have not worn it much, but it's my fault.
