As part of the their Autumn/Winter 2014 collection Edwin Japan and Edwin Europe have collaborated on a special edition pair of jeans. The ED-55 Made in Japan is made from raw 14Oz vintage rainbow selvedge denim fabric which is developed exclusively for Edwin by the famous Japanese denim mill Nihon Menpu.
This very special edition ED-55 celebrates Japanese workmanship and craftsmanship, combined with the unmistakable European styling of the ED-55. This particular fabric respects the traditional methods of denim-making with no pre-shrink processing.During the wash process, the denim will shrink by an estimated 1.5 sizes, so eight domestic washes are recommended before this denim fits to size. Edwin states that the best alternative is to simply not wash them.
