Lee jeans joins the rankings with Wrangler and Levi’s as one of the great denim originals. This year, Lee returns to the spotlight to celebrate their 100 year anniversary. To celebrate this feat the company is digging into the archives with a new collection. The Lee Original – The Archives, is a limited edition of eight trousers and five jackets. Exact replicas have been made of the company’s most iconic lines.
The company didn’t spare any detail. Including going to Japan to exacting train-spotting specs using the same production techniques, cotton, rivets and tightly woven selvage Cone 818 denim that marked the originals so distinctively.

The Mondo collection is sold exclusively in leading, cutting edge High-End stores. The stylish look comes not only from the cut, but also from the special fabric and design. the “high tech” fabrics and the hand made details make their product unique, stylish and comfortable. They draw their inspiration from young people and their lifestyles. Combining this with the strong European flavor of its origins, their fashion lies in its contrasting yet complementary features.

Here is an interesting denim brand for our male readers.
Edwin – an anagram of D, E, N, I, M (reversing the M creating a W) was founded in Tokyo, by Mr Tsunemi, 1947 in response to the expensive and poor quality denim domestically available in Japan at the time. Driven to create his own denims, Mr Tsunemi placed emphasis on sophistication in fits, washes and quality and from this point on quality, craftsmanship, innovation and integrity have been fundamental to the identity and aesthetic of the Edwin brand.
In the 1990’s Edwin created the ‘new vintage’ denim concept, which encompasses the subtle beauty of hand replicating vintage washes from archive references pre-dating 1947. Made in Japan from red selvage denim, all wear and detailing is done by hand and each style is limited to only 150 pairs worldwide! Having such a limited amount available to buy really makes these jeans more unique and special. The brand features raw jeans, distressed jeans, skinny fits and relaxed fits and even styles with suspenders. I think this brand is worth a try guys.
