When cuntever123 complained about the price, I was expecting a $350 or 450 sticker.

$275 sounds PERFECTLY reasonable. Borderline BARGAIN compared to other Japanese denim

fukever123, go away

No. I think the point is that most advertising and marketing copy is stupid. After all, they're just jeans, they're not a mind-altering substance.

i am honestly not trying to shit up this thread further, but am actually curious

do a lot of the japanese repro brands use some automation in making jeans or is everything specialized like in an assembly line?

no, most of the construction is not automated (aside from the production of denim). they are made just like the roys but not by a single person...maybe a handful of people instead.

Fullcount 1108s at BiG just went up to $325. SugarCane has steadily climbed the price ladder. LVC just had a big hike.

These days, if you want quality repro-style denim, you're gonna have to pay.

In terms of Japanese repro denim, the larger companies tend to use specialised factories for regular production jeans where one craftsman will usually handle one aspect of the production.

Of course, smaller brands like Studio Zero, etc do have jeans made by the same person top to bottom...and special edition jeans from larger companies too.

The craftman/woman in the factories usually rotate their niche after a year or so (so I've been told), so after a few years and many 1000s of pairs of jeans later, they will know how to make a pair of jeans in it's entirety.

Sugar Cane still cheap as in Japan, pricing on mainline denim hasn't changed in a few years now.

But Japanese prices are somewhat irrelevant to those of us in the states. Buying from SelfEdge or BiG, I can get jeans hemmed before shipment, have no fear of customs fees or having something get stuck in customs (though I've never paid a customs charge), easier access to returns or exchanges, etc. And there's the extra cost of shipping from Japan, exchange rate and proxy fees to factor in as well.

You could get your jeans hemmed on Union or Kansai specials from most shops in Japan too (for free), and they can easily be bought from shops who readily ship overseas, no need for proxy. Some of the shops, like Pirates, also do discounted international shipping. I don't know what it's like for you guys in the US - there's no custom fees, hold-up, or tax for us Aussies up to $1000. But definitely being able to try them on in person and feel the hand of the denim is very important ~~~ Back on topic though, any body copped a pair of Roy's yet?
