Hi all!

I picked up these unusual Levi's a while back and have been struggling to find any information on them; in particular, the patch which I haven't been able to find a similar example of anywhere online.

From the washing information label, I can see that they are Japanese. They are black with a 2cm, blue, stitched pinstripe.

Here is an image of the patch:


Here are some other pictures of the jeans:





Any help for this newbie collector would be very much appreciated!

Many thanks!

Looks as if they were made in 2004- the 0804 should stand for August 2004

Don’t know if it helps but the label actually says (in Japanese): made in China (中国)
What I also can make out (the katakana below the 0804): Levi - Stores Japan
So it’s made in China for the Japanese market.

That makes sense about the dates. Thanks!

Also, I thought that was the kanji for China but couldn't remember. Thanks!

Thanks for the katakana translation, I'm too rusty to do it myself!
