First Lets talk about why this pair of denim is special..
Established in Tokyo, Japan, in 1947, the EDWIN brand is known for its authenticity, innovation and craftsmanship. Founder Tsunemi Yonehachi was amongst the first merchants to bring vintage American jeans to Japan in the postwar era, setting off a national obsession with denim.
In 1961, inspired by a growing demand, EDWIN (whose company name comes from a creative rearrangement of the letters found in the word "denim") debuted the first made-in-Japan jeans.
By the 1970s, EDWIN had established itself as a pioneer in denim manufacturing, experimenting with wash techniques in the EDWIN Wash House that impacted denim wash processes around the globe. Innovations included ONE WASH, a prewash process to eliminate shrinkage prior to purchase, and OLD WASH, a precursor to stone wash that reproduces faded colors through careful abrasion techniques for a lived-in denim look.
Some could say Edwin denim is responsible the Japanese we know and love today.
Introducing EDWIN 13.5oz Proprietary Selvedge
FIT: Tapered Leg
Made from premium long staple cotton in a 3x1 weave with a natural color weft for beautiful fade potentials. The warp yarns have undergone a 10 dip indigo process for a mid to dark indigo look. Woven together in a slow weave process to emulate the post war processes used in the founding years of the EDWIN brand.
Notable exterior markers are the infamous EDWIN arcuates on the back pockets and simple leather branded patch with Lot number and sizing information. Last but not least would be EDWIN's rainbow selvedge ID which features 3 rows of color. A single row or brown, yellow, and green make up the brand distinguishing selvedge ID.
Other production notes are a copper all over stitching, button fly, Edwin branded copper rivets, and single needle inseam stitch for a simple and classic design construction. This denim is part of a small batch production for the newly introduced Made in Japan Collection. All denim is 100% authentically made in Japan.

Zero x Zero Denim = Unsanforized. If you do not want you denim to shrink we suggest keeping them out of hot water and the dryer. Cold soak and hang dry. If you want to have your denim a shrink to fit then size up 1 from your normal size and hot wash and dry.
