The High Streets of Britain are witnessing a spectacular battle which, until now, has been fought out in America's main streets; the struggle between the high-priced designer jeans and the so-called basic jeans which have for so long had this massive market to themselves.
Judith Hann analyses the blue jeans business and meets the man who first put an expensive signature on the back pocket of his company's products and found he was sitting on a gold mine. The Risk Business visits Hong Kong and discovers a new twist in the old tale of sweat shops and cheap labour costs in the Far East.
Blue jeans have, until recently, spelt high profits and thousands of jobs in the West. The old order is now being attacked, not only by the new economic equation in the East but by a cheeky Cockney retailer operating from a converted cinema in London.
