Stumbled (back) onto the jeans of Ooe Yofukuten & Co. and after a bit more digging see that RepeatToFade had a great potted history of the brand written in 2008; informed and personal. Serious cosign from RTF on this brand; add to the lottery/eventually list.
The jeans are handmade, to order. You pick the denim etc and choose from the available styles (picking through various blogs, and sites written in Japanese, that seems to be correct...). What? Only 81 types of denim/cloth?
Quick primer from OOE about the ordering process before you dive in, and how to size;

001XX is Fabric No. "0" + Model No. "01XX"
