Highlighting Special And Rare Denim Styles

This Vintage Denim Extra book is a collection of products that emerged during that time, centered on vintage denim made in the United States. It has become a thing. Therefore, you should be able to see several trends in vintage denim currently circulating in Japan.

To make this book, they collected again special items from jeans makers, work brands, store brands, western labels, etc., which were predominant at the time, all have a unique value. They’re also expanding the era of vintage denim they collect. From the early 20th century, when denim products were distributed as workwear, to the 1990s, when the design was pursued as fashion, you can see the transition of denim products reflecting the backdrop of that era.
