UES Clothing MFG .CO.

Apologises if there is already a UES thread up, but I couldn't find one...

Official site:

http://www.japaneseselvagejeans.com

Trilingual website, Japanese, English and Chinese.

According to the website they opened their first shop in Kobe in 1997.

I think Mega can really identify with their brand ideals:


Looking around our lives, we are surrounded so many things. Are they really being fully-used? Do we sometimes throw these things away even though they are still usable? We think that it is very important to choose genuine products to appreciate the real value. Also use them till the end of its life in order to fulfill its role. We don’t follow the trends in fashion.

Our brand name “UES” derives from “waste” in English. Japanese people often reuse old clothes as dust cloths to extend these usages and call it “UES” since early times. We keep on making our products in the hope that you will use our products until the end of its life. Neither throwing them away nor, keeping them in the closet without being fully-used.

Copyright UES CLOTHING MFG CO All Rights Reserved.

There is an online shop:

http://ues.shop.japaneseselvagejeans.com/index.html?lang_id=en&tsuka_conv=USD

I've checked through some of the products they sell, (they do socks!! :)) and they seem to have quite a large range of products. I haven't ordered anything as yet, but the site seems easy to navigate.

I don't know about stockists outside of the Japan other than Rivet and Hide in the U.K *wink*. But I imagine that the online store will ship worldwide.

So, having created the UES clothing thread, I get to post pics of what I bought on Sunday...



Heavy Flannel Shirt (Navy) the product codes aren't very snappy but they're probably more for internal use by UES: 501352_05



This is a size 2, which works out to a Medium



It's not as heavy as the IH heavy flannels, it's about the same weight as a medium weight IH flannel. The interior is brushed, which gives a soft feel to the cotton. The exterior is unbrushed, but it's not too rough.

I wore this pretty much all day yesterday in the rain, very warm and quite waterproof.

I bought mine from Rivet and Hide (is this enough exposure yet Danny?? ;)) and according to the online store these are sold out...

Fit pics:







This is the first UES product I've bought, the first time I heard about them was from Danny on Sunday. If the rest of their catalogue is up to the same standard, and I have every faith that it will be, then I'll certainly be buying more in the future.

I like the pink and the blue slub flannels. Too bad they're only available in smaller sizes.

I helped them develop sizes 4 & 5 which is an XL and XXL. Check out the size charts for exact measurements.
