    Is this another example of precise, meticulous reproduction of flawed, shoddy construction? I'm just teasing in good nature. Of course you can dig at me, but I'm not trying to be a jerk. But seriously, is that seam supposed to be like that? Why? The jeans look awesome - I especially like the vertical fading, rice-grainy texture and mix of high- and low-contrast.

    @bencap Nope, I took my true size (31). They're fairly slim, but mostly I'm just tall (6'3" / 191cm.)

    Samurai Jeans

    Hi friends, It's been nearly I decade since I last browsed this forum but I have a trip to Japan scheduled for later this year and it got me thinking that it would be the perfect opportunity to pick up a pair of denim. Samurai was the one brand that always evaded me back in the day, maybe because I was in high school and had no money or a combination of other factors, but now that I can, I'm looking to pick up a pair of jeans that I've always wanted. I'm looking for advice from anyone that's ever been to Samurai's flagship store in Japan and what that shopping experience is like, or if you know of any places in Tokyo where I can get their jeans in the event that I'm unable to stop by their Osaka location. I'm also looking for recommendations on which models, I should be looking at. I have a slightly heavier build with big thighs and big calves but I do like a slim tapered cut. Out of curiosity, what are the best online retailers that carry Samurai right now? Sorry for all the questions but I'm looking forward to your replies, thanks!

    @istewi How was the shrinkage on your overcomers? Would you mind giving us a mini review? Going to order from Taobao for the first time soon and I might as well order some jeans when they’re that cheap.

    Japan Blue Momotaro

    Slim straight but unfortunately they don't make them anymore, so it was a dead stock find really, they have a few larger sizes on grailed actually

    Levi's RED

    my father is quite a fan of Engineereds: I think he had a dozen of them in last 10 years, always manages to find deadstock pairs. Got one pair from him that fit me good - they were pretty much ok everyday pair for a student. Also remember having Levi's with red top button, they were of some greencast indigo color, but surely of a more normal fit so not sure if they were this REDs. I'll try to search both pairs when visit my parents next time..

    Japan Blue Momotaro

    So I got these from grail about a month ago (honestly don't need jeans for years now) it's the BOMO08t so it's the 8th instalment and from my poor memory it's got hidden going to battle stripes (will show with wear) dear skin patch a mix of Australian and American cotton and they are a heavier 18oz. Rear pick lining is lovely and also love the fabric for the front pocket bags. Will get a fit pick up later just tried them on and it's a good fit, the denim feels shinny? Guessing the starch, anyways..

    Levi's RED

    Strangely enough I don't feel guilty - in fact, I wish I still had them to pull them out every once in a while and, maybe, put them on for a day once in a blue moon. the Billy-Bob model wasn't too outrageous and made a nice point in regards to anti-fit. also loved the engineered/twisted range on a conceptual level - there were at least 1 or 2 models that I should've bought...

    Tanuki Japan

    Just bought a pair of NSXT "SEN" 16.5oz Stretch Selvedge - Extreme Tapered Fit from Blue Owl. Loving the taper (it's pretty intense - if it was any skinnier, I wouldn't be able to get my feet through). Loving the hairiness. The slub is moderate - not the slubbiest of denims, but not uniform, either. I will say, however, that these things are not "easy" to fade. Normally I start seeing some pocket fades by the first week (e.g. Samurai, Momotaro, IH), but these just won't bleed blue! I guess the one-wash really got the indigo to adhere well. Anyone else experiencing this?

    It's a shame, but I'll still consider another pair of FC in the future if they keep the XX denim.
