I found this brand while whisking through the internet. I found Mizra Vintage Jeans. I thought they look really, really awesome. According to the Oxford Press English Dictionary:
1. an ancient Japanese boy’s hairstyle in which the hair is separated into two knots and curled to fall in front of each ear. Typically worn during feudal Japan prior to reaching adulthood.
JEANS (jēnz) pl. n.
2. Jeans are trousers traditionally made from denim, but may also be made from a variety of fabrics. It is usually an informal wear :)
The designer of Mizra Jeans is a young bloke called Yoshiyuji Iwagashi, who was with Shokunin.com prior to the launch of his jeans line. This is no ordinary jeans as Yoshiyuji has background work on traditional woven kimonos and other traditional costumes, he applied his knowledge on these jeans which means, you can only expect the best weave around with this brand.
Each of Mizra Jeans are unique in its own right. Mr. Iwagashi incorporated delicate kimono pieces onto each jeans and hand painted beautiful adornments like chrysanthemum and dragons on back pockets. It is beautiful and traditionally rich. Mizra Jeans is an embodiment of Japanese culture mix with west.
And if you are in Kyoto, you can check out their flagship store and get your hands on an awesome pair of jeans. Remember, they’re are rare and you will be the ONLY one wearing it in the whole wide world.

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great and safe holiday season. It’s about now that people are geting back to work or school, flicking on the PC and directing their browsers at 3yen to avoid doing whatever they’re meant to be doing, heh.
Well, we hope to make your procrastination worthwhile in 2007. Firstly, we have a new blogger in our ranks: The Expedited Writer! She’ll be writing here in Fashion.3yen.com as well as some other places on the 3yen site. I’ll still be here and around the site too, no fear.
We’ve also recently moved to a new server which never goes without a few hiccups, so apologies to people who have made comments that haven’t appeared on the site. They should be up there now and you shouldn’t need to wait to be moderated in the future. Just make sure you use the same name and email in all your comments.
Well then, that’s all of the admin stuff out ofthe way. Stay tuned for more Japanese fashion goodness on 3yen in 2007 :) To start you off: a photo.
This was taken in Kyoto where there are dozens of businesses that dress you up as a geisha or maiko for a fee. Men can dress up as samurai or feudal lords. Except one man. Yes, the one on the right in the photo. He decided that the hakama is kinda boring and wanted to try his hand at those 10cm high geta that the women get to struggle on!
Ha, crossdressing was probably invented by the Japanese.
