漁師が履いた中古ジーンズが人気

Used Jeans by Fishermen are Popular

Jeans worn by fishermen for 1 year are popular for high prices in Onomichi, Hiroshima prefecture because it’s faded in color nicely and the damaged feeling is stylish.

The denim fabric is faded cleanly when the sea tide and the sun hit it.

Brand new Jeans for 22,000 yen sell for 44,000 yen which is twice as much, after wearing them for 1 year.

It attracts buyers that are damaged jeans fans.

It makes business “economic development projects in the area” and they started to sell after having fishermen, farmers, priests of temples, etc. wear them for 1 year.

Fishermen wonder, “why old things can be sold for higher?”

広島県尾道市で、漁師が1年履いたジーンズが
とてもいい感じに色落ちしてオシャレなダメージ感が
出ているため高値がついて人気です。
海の潮や太陽に当たり、デニム生地がきれいに色落ちします。
新品で2万2千円のジーンズが、1年間着用後には
2倍の4万4千円で売れました。
ダメージジーンズファンの買い手がつきます。
これを「町おこし」としてビジネスにし、
漁師や農家、寺の住職などに1年履いてもらってから
売るということを始めました。
漁師たちは「なぜ古いものが高く売れるのか?」と
疑問に思うそうです。
