do you know if there using the same denim in both the blues and the hand-made 1001s? i know on paper they are both 14 oz denim ... this whole hand-made single needle thing is new to me in raw denim so i am trying to learn about it.
As far as I can tell it's the same denim...I think there are subtle variations from batch to batch, but essentially the same thing.

BiG used to have two coded jeans - red and blue, in addition to the shoai.
They dropped the red, kept the blue, and rakuten don't seem to code the jeans in the same way... can't tell if the red's are 0220 or ONI-60 or what.
Yeah, they do.
Just have to look at the measurements if you can't read Japanese, but usually it's indicated in Kanji.
赤鬼 = red
青鬼 = blue
Older models also had blue/red buttons as further indicators.
