The Japanese make some of the world’s best denim and jeans. There’s simply no doubt about it. Even for the low-priced alternatives to Samurai, Pure Blue Japan, Momotaro and the like, especially Uniqlo the Japanese equivalent to Sweden’s H&M (but of much higher quality) offer some pretty decent jeans. This particular pair have been worn for a couple of years, and for the first 6 months they were dry. Nice job!
