Um, what's the difference between the two in raw 19cm? They look the same to me. Are the retail price the same as well?

mij are about 10% more and are known to be a bit more snug despite cm measure. japanese denim is generally preferred to italian.

Consider this. MII raws aren't even carried anymore in the dior homme store. Many people on sufu consider MII to be a mistake that Hedi made during his time in DH. MII also tends to be higher discounted.

You said it, not us.

I can't speak to quality, but MII had a reputation for stretching a lot - to an unexpected degree sometimes.

Heh, I just realized I'm wearing MIJ right now. I'm so damn cool

I agree with this. I don't have washed, but I've got dauphins which are also MII.

I believe MII has a larger selection of washes as well.
