Denim Fetishists- A FINE JEANS BRAND YOU WILL LOVE!!

No, not me!!!!
I do love jeans, but absolutely not to the point of wearing them as daily basis. However, I do appreciate fine hand-dyed and hand-stitched craftsmanship on denim and on other garment.

I discovered a Japanese brand- Kapital yesterday while we were at SF city. The owner of the store Cotton Sheep told me that Japanese people are so crazy about hand-dyed indigo and if they are true artisanal jeans lovers, they'd look for denim made by Okayama prefecture. Okayama is long known for its dye and indigo industry and the methods they used for dying by hand nowadays can be traced back centuries. Kapital started out their business in 1995.  Now even w/ their understated designs, their fine craftsmanship, truest, deepest shade of blue and functionality have earned so much respect from fashion critics. 

Here are some of the looks from their online catalog.

The leather patch at elbow makes me want to hold a rifle and shoot some ducks... :P 
.....which I don't know why!!  
But I do know one rule that you shouldn't shoot ducks (while they are resting) on the pond....it is not fair to them. lol.
