Following the Second World War, the American occupation forces remaining in Japan helped to introduce denim „jeans“ culture, which would become a global cultural phenomenon. In 1947, Tsunemi Yonehachi Shoten was established as a U.S. Military Surplus clothing store in Tokyo. The store was a family business and was to be the starting point for the Edwin Jeans brand, as we know it today.
After many years of dedication, Shuji Tsunemi, the son of the founders was passed ownership in 1961. He had an acute understanding for the power of denim culture and recognised the opportunity for importing used, five pocket denims from the U.S. That year the Tokyo store changed its name to EDWIN (using the letters from the word DENIM, and flipping the M to a W).
Edwin Jeans as pioneering denim company claims to have started the stonewashed process in the 1980s and being one of the first companies to use ring-spun fabrics.
The first ever pair of Edwin Jeans was the 16oz „359BF“ Rainbow Selvage - a heavy, rigid selvage fabric. The „Rainbow Selvage“ is still in use today for Edwin Jeans, although currently produced exclusively in Japan, and no longer in the U.S.
Edwin Jeans offers a collection of pieces, both in denim and ready to wear, encompassing the inspiration upon which the brand was founded.
