With a brand history stretching back to 1947 Edwin are a staple in the denim landscape and have become one of the most established and respected Denim manufacturers around. The company began life in 1947 when a Tokyo resident, Mr. Tsunemi, began importing US denims into Japan where they had previously been unavailable. As the brand grew they moved into producing their own Edwin Jeans and came to worldwide prominence in the 1980’s with the introduction of the stonewashing technique which has now become commonplace in denim manufacturing. In recent years the Edwin brand has focused on the European market and produces a full collection inspired not only by their Japanese homeland but also pushes the boundaries of contemporary menswear. Edwin Jeans remain the jewel in the brands crown and we’ve taken a closer look at what you can expect from the brand in our Edwin Jeans fit guide.

Edwin Jean Fit Guide
With Edwin denims there is one rule to live by: The higher the number, the slimmer the fit. If you are looking for a looser fitting denim check out the ED-45 or if you like your jeans with a skinny finish then the ED-80 could be your perfect cut.
The most popular denim fit and one of the most loved jeans around is the Edwin ED-55. The ED-55 are the perfect fit for almost any body shape and are an ideal midway point between straight and slim denims. With a carrot like slim tapered fit the ED-55 have a mid rise, are relaxed on the thigh and taper down towards the hem. As the most popular Edwin fit the ED-55 is available in a range of washes and you are guaranteed to find the perfect style for your look. Perfect for daily wear the Raw ED-55’s will gradually fade over time to show stress points and honeycombing unique to you and will make you appreciate the quality of Edwin Jeans. If the idea of breaking in a pair of denims from raw doesn’t take your fancy however the brand have released the 12.8oz ED-55’s (pictured below)with pre-distressed detailing and the brands iconic rainbow selvedge detailing.
One of the newest Edwin fits it the brands ED-45 which was introduced to the range last year. The new style has been described by Edwin as a more exaggerated version of the ever popular ED-55 denim. A loose tapered denim the ED-45 features a mid-rise, loose thigh and tapered leg. While the cut may be new the detailing remains true to tradition with the gull detailing to the back pocket, branded waistband patch and Edwin branded donut buttons. A possible future classic the ED-45 is available in a 11.8oz coal wash or a more robust unwashed version.
The slimmest fit in our Edwin collection is the brands ED-80 Denim. Another fan favourite the ED-80 is the perfect contemporary denim and can smarten up any look in an instant. Not a super skinny denim this is a modern slim fit with a slightly tapered leg and mid rise. A stand out from the recent collection is the red listed selvedge ED-80 in an unwashed finish. Perfect for wearing in from Raw the red selvedge detailing allows for a small turn up to provide the finishing touch to your look.
