  1. Hey - thanks for using the samurai or small questions thread ...once soaked it's ok to hem, give them extra 0.5 inches and you'll be good

    Edit - moved to samurai thread😎


  2. really thrilled about these - just figured I'd post some quick fit pics - pre soak/

     

    as suspected - shrinkage really good amount, so yes, don't size down, I only soaked warm not hot and got a really decent amount.

     

    can't wait to see how these fade, the denim is ueber dark, and gathering from the indigo loss during soak I reckon these will take some determination to fade

  3. And received these beauties last night, serious piece of denim, the 17oz feels really solid, smoother than the xx001 denim in texture but with a solid amount of character and a gorgeous shade of blue - will post pics over the weekend - general advise - if you are in between sizes, go one up....I just did a quick shrink test with the cut offs - and there's about 0.4 shrinkage just in the width...

    Strike Gold had been working on a new 17oz denim that would create a particular indigo shade they had in mind.  The mill produced a small run of the fabric for them which they were satisfied with, then shortly after when the production run started Strike Gold put a stop to the run because the shade didn't match the initial sample run.  The mill stated they could not match that exact shade again unless they added pigment dye to the indigo bath.  Strike Gold refused to do this as they wanted to stay with a 100% pure indigo dyed jean.  These people are extremely particular about their denim.  They decided against making a jean that wasn't exactly as they envisioned, so instead they produced only 175 pairs, which is all the initial denim run could be made into.  The jean is cut into Strike Gold's slim tapered XXX9 fit and is availble only at Self Edge and at Strike Gold's own shop in Okayama, also, each jean comes with a Strike Gold tote bag.
