Hi, have not posted here before and pretty new to the brand although I have had the privilege to own a the 660 back in '10 and also most recently the 1100 (type 66) jeans. Have always wanted a pair of either 800 or the 1001 as well so on a recent trip to the Daikanyama store I tried on both and bought the 1001 in the end. Just wanted to share some pics with you warehouse denimheads on this board - so here they are....
The current 1001 as you all know is a slimed down silhouette using their banner denim
the offset beltloop is a nice touch
comes with a complimentary beautifully finished wooden hanger
and the current catalogue too
and on with the fit after 3 wears :
I went true to size (sz 29). Here are some measurements (one wash) :
Waist: 14.5â€ (has stretched slightly)
Front Rise: 10.25â€
Back Rise: 14.5â€
Leg Opening: 7.75â€ (uncuffed)
When I was there, the 1001 was out of stock so I initially bought the 800. However, I felt that the denim was really coarse on the insides. When I tried them on for longer they felt really rough - I can imagine them getting pretty uncomfortable, so thats a no for me. I decided to return it to the store the following week, which the staff at the Warehouse store at Daikanyama store gladly obliged. I must say the service was superb. It had to be my day as I was told when I returned that they had just restocked the 1001 - so I was just literally stoked
Also tried on the cotton/linen blend 1001 (with the white rear patch) while I was there and didnâ€™t like the feel of it - but thatâ€™s just my personal opinion.
till the next update - ciao....
