Nice work fellas. Very cool read and amazing photos.

The yellow graphics look like something from 70's exploitation movies. Nice choice

MR: In the USA, MFSC garments are offered in raw condition only, whereas in Japan they are offered both as raw (as produced) and washed (distressed to reproduce a heavily worn condition). What is the ratio of Japanese vs. Western sales, and what is the ratio of raw vs. washed sales in Japan?


CL: About half of the production is for Japan, and half for MF to distribute.

 Japan has been plagued by the medias pushing that nasty ‘distressed’ look, as much as the rest of the world. Japan used to be all about raw rigid denim, but in the mid 2000s a demand for softer ‘worn-in’ new garments pushed most manufacturers to comply. Toyo was no exception. The purists still wouldn’t touch anything even factory rinsed, but the kids wanted the ‘instant gratification’ of the ‘vintage wash’…

 It’s getting better now, and both for aesthetic and environmental reasons, customers are turning away from those fake washes and are back to raw.

 I’ve done my share of preaching in that domain.





Im a great fan of your work Christophe! And ive heard your say on pre distressed, and pre washed garments many times. So honestly, how much do you really think this sucks, Christophe?
