When Jane and I discovered LGB (Le Grand Bleu) at Maxfield's in LA, we were both pretty excited to find out it originated in Japan.  Finding the line proved to be incredibly difficult, but Jane stayed up one night sleuthing on the Internet and was able to discover three stores here in Japan owned by LGB.  We are transfixed.  Jane goes into detail about this line that we are so in awe of, so I won't repeat everything again.  Full shot pants
