    There's not a substantial difference between the two - XX3 is a replica of XX2 with new yarns, as the yarn maker that produced the yarns for XX2 burned down, and OA had to start over again to match it. There is a slight change in the color of the weft, however.

    The latest batch of OA02XX just landed. We went raw this time, no rinse. They're cut from the new OAXX3 denim OA had made up, which is very similar to the OAXX2 - we had cuts from all 3 generations of their denim sitting on the table at their house. From the first to the second is super obvious, but from second to third - even Ryo had a hard time picking it out. 13.5oz unsanforized selvedge denim exclusive to Ooe Yofukuten 100% cotton Extra-deep front pockets Extra-long 40" (pre-soak) inseam Hidden rivets on the back pockets Iron top and fly buttons O.Y. & Co copper rivets

    Sounds like you guys want to do another contest, right? is everyone thinking 5 pocket 01 or 02; OR do you all want to do something more advanced like the Boss or Hercules?

    Unsure on that one, I believe that batch is coming up for production soon.

    Whenever we do a run with them, we do a 36" post-soak inseam. We just met with them at their workshop again, lots of good stuff coming down the pike in the next year!

    I think they'll be ok. My 36 are up to about a 37 now.

    The measurements are post-wash, and it's the same cut. My experience with all 4 pairs of OA I own has been the same - the waist will return to raw measurements after wearing. With my personal size 36 Golden Gate 01's, I could barely close them raw, and after a hot soak, it took me about 15 minutes to get them buttoned up again. Now they're perfect.

    Fatigues - That's a little ways down the line, we've got a couple of other secret projects in front of those. The new OAXX in 01 cut - we're going to order in a run of those shortly. I've been really enjoying the '01, it's really just-right.

    Here's Brandon in an unsoaked pair. My take on those - as the guy who decided to use them: I had the same reservations about the spacing, but I really liked the '40s aesthetic about the wide loops centered. I just wear my belt off-center to deal with it. Yes, 1946 pair. The other two details that I'm really into - the mismatched side stitches. One side is lock stitch, one side is chain stitch. Production error on the vintage pair we were looking at, and we decided to run with it. The coin pocket is non-selvedge because we cut it on the bias, vintage-style. It creates really interesting fades that way.
