    What do you think of it?
    I saw it at the show. The owner says he is trying to compete with APC . the prices retail from 120.00 to 200.0 all Japanese selvage . He wouldn't give me the mill he was using. Some if the product looked very nice.
    He made a 21 oz jeans to compete with the iron heart jean.
    Feed back please.

    Man, I really hate that name [​IMG]
    But it never hurts to have another solid denim company out there.

    Everyone wants to be naked and famous. Look at me I'm naked and famous.

    Was tricky the first to use that phrase or did it come from somewhere else?

    Yeah, I'll I've read so far have been buzz-words. I'd like to hear the real details.

    Website? I've never seen this product, in person or otherwise. It sounds interesting, but he must be getting them produced in Turkey or China. I can't figure that he could FOB them for $25 from Japan, which is what he must be doing if he can retail at $120. Doesn't mean that he can't get good production out of either though. How does the 21 ounce denim look? Is it like Ironheart, or more like the heavyweight Samurais in the way it is milled?

    Denim looks decent enough. Cuts are pretty standard/boring, hardware not very exciting.
    Super thick slim guy (the 21 oz) is not excactly an Iron Heart killer, but pretty interesting, especially at the price point.

    EDIT: I guess I should mention the fact that I think the branding/naming and website are really lame....
