Hello, I'm fairly new to the raw selvedge denim thing. Until recently I've been a sucker for 7, rock&republic, citizen, etc....I just bought my first pair of earnest sewn fulton's in the line dry and can't wait to wear them everyday for my own distinct wear. My questions is, what is all the hype behind Japanese denim? Japan would be the last place I would think of being ahead in the fashion industry. Are earnest sewn's anywhere close to Japanese denim quality?
