KMW made in China?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I saw some KMW's that were made in china on a major denim online retailer and I was wondering what the deal was with that? Doesn't that go against their philosophy? Does anyone here own a pair? Thanks.

I own two pairs. They're nice and run a bit bigger than the newer made in japan ones.

The made in china ones are just older.

Other than the size are there any noticeable quality differences? Oh and thanks you have been very helpful!

The quality is all there whether they're made in China or Japan, although the heavy marketing is for the Japanese ones.  One major difference is the China-made ones (older 2007? stock) are softer as the 1980 was a washed version, whereas the current Japanese made ones are harder / raw.  The owner is a very cool down-to-earth lady; very genuine, answers emails and makes great denim products.  Fan for life.

it would be interesting to see how much more it costs to make a pair of jeans in Japan vs. in China.  I bet its considerably more expensive.
