Nice ONIs! great fade!
Posted January 29, 2008
Thanks for the fit pics, can I ask your measurements? And size of the jeans? Fullcounts fade quite slowly but the results are amazing (if they hold up). By the way they're 13.7oz and those 103's are 15oz.
These are 30x34 (note: I've tried 3 different sizes to get the right one). The waist stretches a lot. The waist on the jeans measures 34" (it stretched). Measuring with the tape directly on my waist, it is 33" all the way around. It depends on the kind of fit you want, but I'd suggest sizing down. I first bought a size 32 and it was too big.
They have a nice texture

Here are some pictures of my Full Count 1101 after one year of everyday wear.
Before you say there's not much wear in it at all, I'd like to clarify that when I started wearing it, it was my intention to preserve the color and make the wear marks turn "blurred", without contrast. What I did was washing it twice right at the beginning, and then I washed it subsequently after every month or so. I like the result, although I expected it to fade a bit faster.
Here are pictures of them new:
Here are them after one year. I removed the end of the arches in the back pockets... but I think it looks good both ways.
Me wearing them. These show the color more accurately:
They are quite comfortable and kind of thin (12.5oz I think), so it's not hard to wear them in the summer in Brazil, compared to my D'Artisans SD103, which are 15 or 16oz. They felt a bit cold in the winter, while the D'Artisans did not. I wore my SD103 in the previous year, but did not wash it so frequently, and the result was the opposite of these: high contrast and more wear marks.

They're Levi's 501 Premiums (which would make them selvage).http://www.engadget.com/2006/02/28/what-would-steve-wear/
I'm not sure if you can trust (www.stevesoutfit.com), it also says Schwarzenegger wears Santoni $495 shoes. Schwarzenegger actually wears Silvano Lattanzi shoes, for $5,000 or so.
train tracks appear on anything. those look like regular levi's.
I thought I had read here somewhere that there was a way of identifying selvage by the train tracks, but I may be mistaken. I'm pretty sure the last pair has hidden-rivets, though. Isn't that a sign of vintage Levi's, or at least LVC?
Posted June 2, 2007
Now that I come to think of it, do train tracks only appear on selvage, or on open edge too?
I wonder what are the jeans he wears. I know they are selvage. Maybe vintage Levi's?

I like this model called Fuck Levi's™. Heard of it?

Apparently the best cotton in the world is Sea Island cotton, with a fiber length of up to 64mm, and it's also the most expensive. It is grown in the Caribbean Islands. Then there is the top variety of Egyptian cotton (up to 44mm) and American Pima cotton (up to 41mm). Source: http://www.swicofil.com/products/001cotton.html
Suvin cotton from India seems to be more or less the same quality as Pima cotton. Zimbabwean cotton seems to have a lower length than these, although still being rated as high-quality cotton. I've read it somewhere but couldn't find the URL anymore.

this is a little off topic, but: is it me or there has been a lot more interest in Levi's since the trademark issues? so many topics about Levi's all of a sudden?

what do the japanese brands do in relation to ipod-jeans
nothing... Levis could do the same.
"Introducing the Levi'sÂ® Redwire™ DLX Jean
Instead of this they could try doing what the Japanese brands do. I think I know why they don't... because corporate mentality says make the production costs the lower it gets and the price tag the most people will pay. It's different than making the best product you can for the right price.

btw, the waist will eventually stretch up to another 2"
They are regular fitting, the materials and the construction are great, the rise is not low, not too high either.
Here are some measurements I took from a 1101 size 29 one-wash:
waist = 29"
front rise = 11"
back rise = 14.5"
thigh at crotch level = 11.5"
knee = 8.75"
leg opening = 8"
Size 32 one-wash:
waist = 32"
front rise = 11.3"
back rise = 15"
thigh at crotch level = 12.5"
knee = 9"
Compare these measurements with a pair that fits you.

wait... wat?! that doesnt really make sense does it, why would they want to help a store at the same time want to put it out of business?
"Levi's legal department and creative department don't interact with each other"
I have never, and I mean NEVER, heard of US customs opening a parcel containing apparel for inspection.
I've heard from US customs opening vintage Japanese jeans, destroying them for their similarity to Levis, here in Superfuture. It was around a year ago, I can't find the thread though.

airfrogusmc - you talk about principles and trademarks in general.
maybe what is in question is not the validity of these principles and of trademarks, but whether what Levi's has is (or should be) a trademark or not.
whether what the companies did is (or should be) an infringement or not.
of course the law said so, but law allows room for mistakes

read the first post, it's all there.
I mean, is there really no complication to others apart from those seven entities? Can other brands pass through customs?
there are seven entities being sued
who are those being sued?
we could wait and see what they will come up with... and support them by buying the new designs...
we could as well help with buying the illegal pairs so that they don't lose as much money.
kiya, do you know if the Japanese customs are stopping the jeans from leaving the country?
