The Quest for Perfect Jeans

JAPANESE STREETS meets the Japanese jeans fanatics that set off the jeans boom of the late 80s and early 90s

Kjeld Duits: @ricky: Thank you for your interest in JAPANESE STREETS. The links to all the companies mentioned in the article, including EVISU, are underlined.
ricky: if for a brand like EVISU jeans or the other how much is it? and how to buy it? where I can contact the manufacturer or factory EVISU jeans the other? thank you
Tim Hardy: The lengths they go to in order to achieve a standard of authenticity is admirable, interesting and should be adopted by more manufacturers in all areas of fashion if they are really dedicated to their craft, I feel. I spend many hours researching techniques and skills passed down through generations of craftsmen in by my field of leather goods and many other crafts.

Tragic Angel: Yay Osaka! We need more photos and fash news on Osaka. Luv Osaka and it simply doesn’t seem to get the respect and notice it so richly deserves overseas [or so it seems]. Thank you for doing this. As always, your pictures are a delight to peruse.

Kjeld Duits: @MissMolly. I love NANA. You made me laugh about the two Nana’s rolled into one here.
MissMolly: Yeah it’s almost like a rock “gal” outfit. Like the jeans a lot. You’re right, it’s quite different from what you normally shoot. Have you ever heard of NANA? Because it seems like if you combined the styles of those two girls in the series, this is what you’d get haha
childrens jackets: I really love the outfit. It really rocks!
