What is the verdict on the Century denim (stone ver., for me) ?

 

A good pair to start with for an indigo lover looking to get a pair of Kapital jeans?

Rise is very low, not sure if I could get used to it, but I want to try them on again later this year in Roppongi or NYC. I tried the Cisco version in 30 (my true waist is 28), but it was just too loose. They make 28 in the standard indigo Ciscos so I hope they decide to do the century denim in that size eventually.

 

I mostly wear Hawaiis and F310s these days, so even though the 30 in the Stone cut fits me well in most areas, I'm not sure I can get used to the low rise; it's noticeably shorter than the F310 in the same size. I move around a lot day to day, especially if I'm playing a show, and prefer my pants to sit at my actual waist.

 

On fabric alone, definitely get them. One of the coolest things I've ever briefly owned.

If you mean the Century denim, it's only available in men's sizes. If you mean some of their destroyed/repaired indigo jeans, those are typically unisex cuts and are available in many sizes. Finding them in the west will be very hard, but you can use a proxy to shop the Kapital webstore directly: http://www.kapital.j...store/index.php

 

Sufu member Bandana Almanac used to proxy; perhaps he still does.

 

I've seen random pairs on Rakuten at consignment shops as well.

^Would love to see pics if at all possible! Zipang has been on my short list for quite a while now...

 

Also curious how much stretch you got, if you can recall.

These look like a pair I would need to size up on (tagged 36 measures 34.5" according to B.I.G!!) unless they have massive stretch in em.

They do stretch. Mine were 29 which being 1 was was brutal on my hips for a month but have stretched out comfortably. I'm moving now so pics when I get settled.

it seems the regular TH & Zipang are of the same denim construction [ie, same weave & weight] ... only the dyeing process of the warp yarn is different, being the latter is natural indigo-dyed.

not 100% sure, but if true, then [this particular] Kapital denim do stretch quite a bit.
SD1 on my Cisco O/W & they were spot on after the waistband stretched out.
will post pix when able.

just wanted to let those interested know I've just listed some size 34 Cisco No 5s in the Century Denim on the market. This fabric is amazing for those who haven't handled it.

Are there any other well known cuts from other brands that compare closely to the Cisco?
