Jomon = top of the line jeans from 45 rpm and a timeperiod in Japan.

Jamon = Ham in spanish.

Yes, the washed versions of the JP LVC37 were sanforized. Not sure about dry versions.

The reason to sanfor the jeans is that you control the shrinkage when applying vintage-style washing in an industrial laundry. So you can sidestep any problems with the whiskers moving around etc, yet keep the leg twist.

Ah, that's very good information - thanks!

Do yo know who produces the fabric for the 37?

Kiya, I believe, suggested that Sanforized fabric can fade differently from UnSanforized. What's your take?

I believe it's the mighty Kaihara Corporation that makes the OPS denim for the JP 37.

Regarding fading of sanforized versus unsanforized, yes there are subtle differences. The sanforized denim produces a flatter more even fade to the surface, whereas unsanforized denim fades with more of a salt & pepper effect. This is due to the shrinkage, which causes micro bumps on the surface of the denim that create an peppered effect when subjected to abrasion.

Kiya is right :)
