The Conners Sewing Factory have had access to Yawara Miura's 3000 strong Levi's collection and using restored machinery of the era have recreated the rare 1946 model which still featured key elements from WWII restrictions, a transition (if you will) between the 44,s and the yet to come 47,s.

...Its been a long wait.

The S406XXX MIURA-46

Unlike other 'One Piece of Rock' garments the Miura-46 are entirely hand made by one person from start to finish so only 20 pieces can be made each month.

Cow hide patch

Much like WWII Levi's they do have a "not quite perfect' hand made feel about them which i really like.


Single piece sleeve detail


Each hand made piece is signed and dated.

...and comes with a laminated letter of authenticity

On the reverse it shows the vintage sewing machines used by Conners in the making of these garments.

Its the box that just keeps on giving....
S409XXX MIURA-46

13.5oz gray weft cloth woven in Okayama using Mr. Miura's 1946 benchmark denim.
Just look at that blue!

Angled tab

Rusting button backs. The fly is unfinished/open WWII-esque



The hidden rivets are iron



From the thread to the denim to to the stitching a lot of effort has gone into this reproduction.
Both garments are available for pre-order for collection in store so a big Thank You! has to go out to 49s for making this happen.
I could go on but its all summed up beautifully here in this condensed version of the film.
There is also a 2hr film which shows the 46-Miura's being made in real time.

I've followed this on Instagram - such a great process.

And ever since you mentioned the '46 a while back I've been anticipating this. My interest is piqued further now because of the background to which the FW Lot 601XX are designed - so I'd love to hear more about these items.

Very nice, I've had my eye on the S409XX Miura-46's for a long time now.
Denim looks great too, looking forward to see how they evolve!

those are fantastic.  The video was great too.   Being a machine nut, can you post a bigger pic of the card with the machines he uses?
