    levi's has completely different lineups, models, etc in europe and japan. you'll often see these migrate stateside in discount racks.

    LVC and Made & Crafted were both run out of amsterdam fwiu... only now are they rolling em back into the mothership. funny because one of the selling points of both lines is that they're often american-made - they're selling not just american heritage, but craftsmanship overseas! lol

    LVC have plenty of made in Japan Models. and the stuff is good. often priced higher than "Grail" Brands. in fact Levis is a big deal here for Denim purists. seen as a kind of "origins of Denim" than the latest trend.

    only yesterday saw that the new range features Cone Mills Denim. and cost more than Momotaro and Sugarcanes.

    big fan here.[​IMG]

    Also, Beams is like GAP. only much cooler. making their own stuff, and also having others make for them as a collab of sorts. (Drakes,Rag&Bone,etc)

    oh? interesting i didn't realize there was a dedicated japanese lvc line, but they don't sell japanese-made lvc stateside, it all seems to be usa, turkey, portugal, and then italy for the leather stuff...

    but, just trying to point out that overseas levi's can be pretty different than what we see domestically. tbh i'd never heard of levi's california, but then i don't peruse the japanese offerings. i wonder if the market would get it here or ?

    btw Vader, i copped a pair of Kojima Genes... japanese denim pop! and i think they're stf... any love?

    Congrats, spoo! This is huge news!

    I might Kopp a pair of kojima 15 oz. And wear them to work just to see how they would fade. They are fairly good workwear pieces but nothing too specially. What attracts me are their fairly low price point and they are an Okayama company.

    Not sure about "Dedicated japan only line", but there are LVC made in Japan on offer here. i suspect they are all a part of a lineup made in various countries.

    Need to kop some Kojima, really dig their aesthetic.

    Found an amazing pure camel hair cardigan with brown suede elbow patches by Alan Paine made in England. Perfect for this time of year!
