Last month, we had the opportunity to sit down with Mikiharu Tsujita (Head designer/Founder of Fullcount) and talk about the roots of denim in Japan, and the progression and change in demand for these products over time. Being a part of the original Osaka 5, Mr. Tsujita had a lot to share from his personal experiences over the years. What excited us more than anything, though, was him showing us several pairs of Fullcount jeans that have seen years of use. The 1101 model we have pictures of below come from his personal collection, and is a pair he wore for several years before retiring them for display in the Fullcount office.
The FC1101 worn for about 2.5 years by Mikiharu Tsujita of Fullcount. They were washed several times (exact number unknown):
The following pair of FC1108 saw 3 years and 2 months of wear, with about five washes. Notice the repair work on the rear.
