Though not even half as old as Levi’s, Japanese denim vets Edwin are celebrating their 50th anniversary this season with a collection of four jeans. They’re made with a slim taper fit in a raw indigo denim and a natural denim both from Kaihara Mills, black denim from Kurabo, and a neppy green caste denim from Nihon Menpu. And although their blog post mentions four different Japanese mills, one for each jean, their online store only lists the three aforementioned.
To commemorate their golden anniversary, each jean features 5 parallel running stitches at the rear pockets and coin pocket with each row representing a decade. In addition, the logos of each mill are stamped onto the commemorative white leather patch.
Though more reserved, the collection is a solid offering with simple details for any who want a minimalist jean made of Japanese fabric. If you’re in Europe, you can pick up any four pairs at their London, Berlin, and Paris locations or order them from their website for €160.00.
