    I asked if they'd carry any of the Japanese stuff and she asked for an example, I came up with Sugarcane (probably not the best example) and she'd never heard of it. So... I don't think we'll be getting our Blue in Green West anytime soon.

    huh, how disappointing. You'd think they'd want to represent esoteric Japanese denim, but it sounds like they'll have every Evisu model under the sun

    Does anyone know about the pod thing? Sounds very gimmicky. If it's anything like the thing at levis in Santa Monica, it's a total crock. On-site custom washes sound cool though.

    I'd be down for some gull-less Evisu :p Also, exclusive pieces from the Japanese Levi's collection could be nice too. Kapital does look very nice though, on their website (some of them at least). These look awesome, but the price does not :p

    the Kapitals do look good, but OUCH nearly $400/pr

    If they carry the Euro-only Levis, at least that would be cool. Anyways I'll be checking it out in Sept fo sho

    The on-site washes caught my attention, too. Hopefully it'll be open by the end of this month when I'm in town.

    Did anyone notice that they're opening an AmRag/Cafe/Denim something in Fashion Island?

    To be honest, I never really made a connection other than sharing the name. Is it a genuine branch-off?

    It's the same company. Why did American Rag decid to do this? I don't know exactly, but smart money says that it was for the money.

    Too bad. The few times I've seen the jeans they always looked like cheap crap, the fits, the washes, etc. Kinda like how Levi's has their Levi Strauss line.

    How exactly did the pod work @ the Levi store in samo?

    Goddamnit. You'd think these people would have the common decency to wait until I got back into LA to have these sales. Total crap.
