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 according to many 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!
These jeans are unwashed and unsanforized, just like they wear back in the days. With that in mind you can expect a shrinkage of approximately 6 cm around the waist and 6-7 cm at the length when washed. So make sure to choose size with this in mind and please see all measurement in our size chart below.
Johan is 173 cm long, weigh 67 kilos and wears a size W 29. A W30 would be slightly big now and fit him perfectly after shrinking.
Hemming is always included when you purchase a pair of jeans from us! Give us a comment during check out and we will shorten them before we send them. Keep in mind that you won't be able to return the jeans if we alter the length for you.
For hemming, we'll use a vintage Union Special chain stitch sewing machine, to match the original seam of the jeans.
