    speaking of denim.. i bought a pair of edwins about 5 years ago in japan..

    i havent seen them in america.. but id really like to cop another pair.. theyre barely worn at all after 5 years of me all up in them.

    Yeah, I've seen them. I believe they are actually a chinese brand with a Japanese designer. They are certainly made in China.

    I think your Evisu comparison is about right. They have a similar spirit. Lots of embroidery, featuring the Monkey King of chinese mythology, and embroideries based on small japanese prints.

    Sorry I have no pics.
