I believe most of them are made at Caitac in California. I did update the 501 infor thread on sufu but......

There are so many variables in buying denim, that you probably should go with the ones that simply suit you best. LVC jeans are something of an orphan range - they haven't had the consistent care put into them by some of the Japanese makers, notably, as Kiya says, Samurai, Warehouse or Sugar Cane.
