BIG JOHN

Big John is widely considered the Godfather of Japanese denim.

The company was implicit in the production of the first jeans to be produced in Japan, in the early ‘60s, when the company was called "Maruo", a family-owned sewing business.

They collaborated with Oishi Trading Company, using Canton Mills denim, to make that first pair.

Big John was fascinated by the quality of the finished product, the denim especially, and to this day the company stands steadfast by its “quality comes first” philosophy.

Everything we do is for Big John to continue to be Big John 

The name is the bond. As Japan’s eldest statesman of denim, an iconic brand that began in Kojima District, it’s no surprise Okayama is the denim capital of Japan, creating arguably the best Selvedge denim the world has seen.
