The 501 Jean Documentary Talks Japan in Episode 4
Continuing their 501 documentary series, Levi’s focuses on Japan for their fourth episode. This 8 minute video goes into Japan’s fervor for the 501 and how they’ve taken American style and shaped it as their own.
Ame-kaji, short for American Casual, is explored through interviews with many familiar faces. From W. David Marx, to NIGO, to Kiya Babzani, to Rin Tanaka and many more, the episode is perhaps the most engaging of the series yet and peels back the layers to show us just how much Japan loves denim and, in particular, the 501.
