I’ve been developing a pant brand for my retail and wholesale operation, and I’m visiting the factory next week in Japan. I wanted to do a ‘How it’s Made’ style video and wondered if there were any shots or questions you would want to see or ask the designer/tailors.
So far, here are a few of the questions I’ve come up with:
How long does it take to make a pair of pants?
What separates your pants from the competition?
What is the benefit to manufacturing in Japan? Difficulties?
For context, they are a longstanding pant company based in Kyushu, and serve primarily the mid to high end market, and make traditional Italian style trousers with unique Japanese fabrics.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Also, for anyone wondering, a new lookbook should be out in the next week or so.
