    Looks good! You mentioned earlier that they might not stretch to pre washed waist size. If I were to choose a size ending up ~42 cm after some stretch, would 33 or 34 be the way to go? Can't wait to order!

    I think those measurements will work for me in size 35. Pretty close to my fullcount 1101 after the initial wash. I'm on the fence to size up to 36.

    Dr. Sole recently did an interview with Michiya Suzuki, former director of Red Wing Japan: https://www.drsole2011.com/blog-1/my-favorite-boots-9 Michiya has a new YouTube channel dedicated to boots too:

    we'd need to see the internal tag to know. But they'd have to be older than 20 years to be Japanese produciton. They kept producing the inbetween vintage models (502, a 55 501 etc) in Japan, often with cone, but the main models like the 37 were made in the US from 1999 or so, for Levi's Japan.

    Hi guys! I'm waiting for an answer about the hemming and we haven't decided how to handle the one-washing yet. Of course you'll be able to change your mind later on if you forgot to mention it, Kuniyoshi-san starts sewing in August after all. Here are measurements after a hot rinse and now a 40 degree machine wash. Waist is measured flat (not aligned) and the rises using Shingos measuring method. So it shrinks a little more than the chart says. But then it stretches out. Size 35 Waist: 42 cm Thigh: 32 cm Front rise: 31 cm Back rise: 36 cm Inseam: 83,5 cm Hem: 20 cm

    Is there an answer re hemming by Kuniyoshi-san? Also who will perform the one-wash? Kuniyoshi, Shingo or Göteborg?

    These cutz don't heal

    Came for the thread title, stayed for the discussion! My favourites have changed enormously over the years (I imagine this is true of almost all of us?), but at the moment I really love: The Mister Freedom lot 64 cut (extra medium, almost high rise, generous hem for engineer boots), especially in the Okinawa denim and NOS Organic Cotton. The Mister Freedom chinos also deserve honourable mention. The Real McCoys 004 and Joe McCoys 991XH. Very similar 60s style cuts, great fabric, an extremely comfortable jean. The Samurai 710 if I want something a bit more contemporary, quite a mid-low rise, slim silhouette. Following @Iron Horse's example, some fit pics. Mister Freedom Okinawa lot 64 (with bonus moody little man): Mister Freedom NOS 64: Mister Freedom Chinos: Real McCoys 004:

    Can you confirm these are Japanese made? They don’t say LVC anywhere but I bought them maybe 10 years ago on Ebay. Over 40 years of STF 501 experience but I don’t yet feel qualified to wear these. Wash tag is JP and pricetag is JPY. Thanks

    Seems so as the only numbers that have changed from @Bobbo‘s posted numbers are the waist measurements, which I think are a result of measuring the inside circumference of the waist. The waists seem big. I’m waiting on @Bobbo to post his measurements this weekend before ordering because going up +2, as recommended, yields a bigger waist than I’m looking for... Getting a size 35 would bring the washed pants to a waist of 33.8 instead of 33. Jeans look great though and I’m excited for them. It’s also worth noting that if you want your jeans raw you have to state so or else they will come one wash.

    I’ve just had a quick read through the entire thread, didn’t take long. Has anyone been sporting these lately?

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    I’ll probably never get around to buying a pair of Resolute but I think they really are great jeans so everyone else buy a pair and I’ll enjoy them vicariously through you!

    This seems like a smart fit. I am debating on sizing up two, instead of one. Are the most recent measurements one wash on the site?

    Pure Blue Japan

    So y'all know I'm the biggest opponent to the whole relaxed tapered thing, but I've found it impossible to find a pair of black jeans so I sprung for these XX-19-BB sized up. I'm surprisingly really happy with the raw fit, they don't feel super snug at the hem. They are in the wash now so hopefully they don't shrink up way too much!

    Tanuki Japan

    I've been wearing a pair of Tanuki's red cast jeans for just a little over a year now. I bought mine raw, but crocking/blue hands was always pretty minimal -- I wouldn't call them fast faders.

    ^ b_F, good to see the size 36 Ooe OA02 is too loose on you -- married life is keeping you fit! As an old man with muffin top, I find the 36 Ooe about right, so I'm still torn between 35 and 36 ... or may just ask Bobbo to order the jeans in 35.5" ;-)

    @JohnM I will take a size 35. Just measured my orSlow 105 size 3 and they are really pretty similar in their measurements. Obviously the waist on the 105 has stretched and measures nearly 36" by using the inner circumference... My Ooe 02 are a size 36 and a bit too loose so I am happy I/we can choose the so often missing size 35

    Skull Jeans by An Alchemist

    I know as previously discussed, Skull is not really in high regard anymore for a number of reasons, but I really like these 5507xx. One of my favorite fitting pairs. At 113 days, one hot soak, one wash. Coming along nicely.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    ^ the same as on the one-wash pair no, seriously this depends on your washing regime but if you wash in the machine at normal settings they will end up the same. And if you use the dryer as Hayashi-san suggests, it will shrink beyond one-wash measurements
  23. Sharik


    I’m debating getting 1001xx in non wash. I’ve tried the one wash version in 34 and it fits well. Should I be looking at 34 in non wash too? Do you know if these washes are done cold, warm or hot?

    Studio D'artisan

    Answering Beautifull Freeks' question: According to OD, Yes. Those 4 dyed wefts are also 40 th anniversary models. They each represent a different season (blossem dye for spring for instance). Compliments for the G-002! I also prefer straight models with a mid rise. Will post a pic of my D1714. Also not into tapered cuts, i ordered one though. Could not resistent the natural dyed fox cotton in green.

    The 44 has changed significally throug the years to slim thighs, hence the waist and pelvis part is still comfortable. My two years old pair in size W30 measures 29cm from the crotch to the leg outseam and 22cm across the knee erea. Hope I could help.
