    Yen by Michiko Koshino and Seal Kay are both London based brands, and both are street and club influenced, which means that a lot of the jeans are a lower rise, baggier style with some tapering.  A lot of Seal Kay jeans are in heavier weight denim in baggier styles, mostly.  Lots of wierd fashion details a la G-Star, but also some good basics as well.  I really don't see the appeal of Yen.  Some the the "wrinkled" textures are quite nice, but most of the jeans I've seen are excessively detailed and/or washed.  But then again, I tend to think that American premium denim brands, that are in general less innovative but do a better with the fundamentals, are really the way to go.

    Edited for typo.

    Do you mean Yen jeans with this type of logo: [​IMG] If so, the one's I have seen are are usually "raw" unwashed selvedge denim, with a slim 501 type fit. Â Like this: [​IMG]

    I've seen a couple of styles I sort of like. In general though, I find that the jeans are overdone.
