In the wave of popularity that Japanese denim brands enjoyed in the 1990s and 2000s, John Bull was slightly lost amongst the flashier companies that aggressively branded themselves. But if a brand has been successfully crafting quality product since 1963, then you better pay attention. John Bull is one of the original denim brands that bought up the vintage looms that Levi's, Wrangler, and other American companies sold off in the 1960s and has been creating high-quality selvage denim ever since. The strong workwear aesthetic has extended in recent years to a full line of apparel, and true denimheads put John Bull jeans in the same category as well-known brands like Evisu and Studio D'Artisan.
