Denim from Tokyo

The Story

“FDMTL” produces mainly denim garments which are made in Japan, the world-wide manufacturing capital for denim. Those uncompromising products are carefully made with such incredible detail that is difficult to obtain by mass production means.

Denim jeans have excellent durability. They are actually industrial products that you can wear for the longest periods of time. When denim is first made, the fabric is navy blue and gives off an inorganic look, covered with starch. But depending on the shape of the person who wears it, or the way they wear them on a daily basis; it shows astonishingly diverse changes as if it’s a living, organic material. FDMTL denim has a rich expression that tells us these kinds of stories. It’s denim that finally falls into your hands after a long course of time. From here, you will be the one who gives each of them their own history.

FDMTL denim is “JAPAN MADE”. This includes fabric, sewing, and manufacturing. The vast knowledge and experience from skilled workmen are put into each product, resulting in detailed special products that you can’t achieve through mass production. FDMTL denim is launched from 4 line-ups.

Important processes such as distressing breathe new life into the products. FDMTL denim is each carefully constructed, going through numerous stages of workmanship. To avoid making them in an unnatural style, the creation begins by setting up the concept. This involves predicting such things as the occupation of the person who will wear the denim, the place, and the time. There are theories behind each process, so it’s not only about the design, but also about giving a rich expression, as the vintage denim does. They are made by time and effort and repeating the trial-and-error process which is a “space” far from things like efficiency.
