Edwin's Factory

While we might not carry Edwin Jeans, being one the oldest denim companies from Japan, it has a lot of history to it. The company was established in 1947 by Tsunemi-san, who got inspired by the jeans of American soldiers.

This video is a short but beautiful clip shot inside the Edwin factory, where we get a glimpse of the production process. We're not too fond of the distressing of denim over here at DC4, but you probably guessed that already.

Let's have a look at some examples of roping on the hems of Japanese jeans. Roping happens when the denim on your hem moves one way, and the rest of the jeans turn the other way, creating a twisting effect that is loved by denim aficionados. One thing that's almost obligatory for creating this effect, is having chain stitched hems. Which is no problem at DC4. Get a pair of jeans (in-store or online) and get your new pair hemmed for free on our vintage Union Special 43200.
