    For sale is a pair of Made in Japan, Dope + Drakkar Lot 1210 One Wash Jeans. The denim is organic Texas cotton and exceptionally beautiful. Here's what the founder Eiichiri Sataka had to say about their denim:

    We start making my jeans by creating the denim fabric from scratch, with 100% organic cotton. That makes my denim original, and it is very important for us to tightly control each step of the production process. Unfortunately, we can’t get organic cotton within Japan, so we import our cotton from the United States, where the roots of denim exist. There is an organic cotton farm that is owned and run based on Japanese direction. They are the resource for my organic cotton, and I make yarn with it. The yarn’s thickness, the way it twists, all these details reflect on the final product. There are many advanced machines that allow you to make many yarns at one time, using waterpower or steam engine. However, we use authentic, original looms made in the 60s, that only make about 10 m of yarn a day. It takes time, but we can control every detail of the process. We make our original blue pigment obtained from indigo dye. We dye our organic cotton yarn carefully to our satisfaction, and then it goes to the weaving process. I believe every denim brand gives their respect to Levi’s, the originators of denim. However, execution of denim is varied by brand. We place careful attention on every process, starting with selecting the right cotton. You can feel the difference when you wear them. In Japan, we have outstanding machinery to make clothing and authentic looms which no other country has. Also, we have the craftsmen who can repair and maintain the authentic looms, as well as pass the skills on to younger generations. In short, we have the right hands and right tools here in Japan. I think jeans made in Japan with premium denim fabrics are second to none. I see many international brands incorporating denim made in Japan. They know the excellence of it. If other countries could make the fabrics as well, I don’t think anybody would care about importing denim made in Japan.

    These have been worn exactly once and have since been sitting in my closet as I have way too many pairs of jeans. These retail new in Japan for 20,790 yen (currently sold out: http://item.rakuten.co.jp/hinoya/1210/) which is roughly USD$267 and excludes shipping. I'm selling them shipped anywhere in the world with tracking for SOLD. PayPal only please. If you need more pics or have any questions, feel free to PM me.

    I've updated the pics to include a shot of the tag which says 32. From my experience, for raw Japanese denim, they start out bigger than tagged size and after going through the one wash process at the factory, they'll shrink down to smaller than tagged size which I believe is the case here as these came one washed. Also, if you go to the link I provided to the Rakuten site (might need to use google translator), you'll see that the Size 32 also measures to be about 30.7in at the waist. Regardless, these will definitely stretch.

    The jeans have not been altered in any way.

    How much stretch can I expect in the waist? maybe .75-1"?

    Sorry! Meant to get back to you sooner.

    I would expect it to stretch to tagged size so maybe 1.5 inches if you're a 32 waist. If you're slimmer, than I would expect less stretch. But I doubt it'd stretch much past 32 though.
