Am most likely leaning towards the Japanese though, I just love the consistency of that color whereas the Texas is a bit washed out.
I'll have to call those guys, I miss seeing them around.
I *think* the Japanese denim is the same as the Oky standard from Gustin, which I have and think are great.
I have a pair of the Okayama Standards from G, and agree that it is a very good denim. I haven't worn mine in, as I picked them up last fall I think, and usually wear heavier stuff during the Winter months, but plan on getting some use in them soon.
