Anyone have any experience with this brand? I'm a little in the dark about them, and had a few questions.

What are the differences in each cut? I'm looking for a modern slim fit, what model should I go with? Is the the 881-xx the best choice?

Are all the "XX" cuts made from their slubby 18.5oz selvage denim with natural indigo they use on their higher end stuff? Is the cheaper stuff crap? I see prices vary from around $80 to $500+.

Perhaps some of this stuff is on their website here, but I can't read Japanese, and the google translation doesn't work too well.

As far as I know, nobody posted much about this brand here or on Superfuture.
I remember looking at their jeans after finding them in the Indigo Master book. I'm not a big fan of that slubby streaky denim they use on some of their models, which reminds me of something Eternal did for one of their anniversary model.
That being said, I like the 881 model.

I'm not being very helpful here...
