These jeans are made in Japan by Warehouse & Co. Warehouse is known for making some of the best vintage replica garments in the world and their attention to details when it comes to material and manufacturing techniques makes it hard to tell the difference if you compare a Warehouse garment with an actual vintage piece.
In a time when jeans was becoming more and more popular in Japan the youth were looking for original vintage jeans made in USA back in the 40s 50s. They were looking to get that genuine style associated with the hey days of denim. In the 80's Levi's made decisions that came to lower the quality and durability that denim became known for and when original vintage garments became harder to find a new era for Japanese denim was born. Five brands became known as the "Osaka five" and Warehouse was one of those brands!
All these brands was influenced by the most iconic pair of blue jeans ever made namely the Levi's 501 from 1947. One can argue that blue jeans reached its perfection during this time and these jeans are a homage to that time. A tribute to the best jeans ever made and Warehouse has captured the look and feeling of a pair of vintage jeans combining it with a contemporary fit to make some of the best blue jeans produced today.
Warehouse celebrates its 25th anniversary with a limit edition of their iconic Lot 1000XX jeans. To fully understand this product, we must jump back in time. Before the start of the brand in 1995, the founders visited USA to collect vintage garments for inspiration and on one occasion visiting a vintage dealer, they received the answer "What you are looking for is in the warehouse" hence the name of the brand.
