    The 'advantage' of being 17 hours ahead of the US. I haven't bought a print newspaper in years, you can imagine my surprise with how expensive and slim it is (Sydney Morning Herald is $3.40!!!). It really feels like the end of print media.

    Well, waist stretching worked. Stretched a OW 33 to hair over 34 (could have pushed it to 35, but no reason to risk tearing the top button). Turns out I put on more iso weight than I thought (the word is 'denial'). I think if I lost 10lbs the fit would be perfect. Guess that's my next goal this spring (or never take the jacket off, ever )

    Okay, so good news, FedEx re re revised my delivery date and I got them today! Bad news. They're way smaller than even Ryo's measurements. OW 33 Waist: 30.75 Thigh: 12.25 Rise: 13.25 I'm not giving up in them yet. In the waist stretcher, should get around 2in extra. Also rubbed down the leather patch with Obenaufs. Just a note on waist stretching, make sure you fully hydrate the cotton fibres before starting the stretch. Wet fabric stretches. Dry fabric tears. I soaked mine in hot water for 1 hour and then stretched it dripping wet. Now, letting it dry overnight. Fit pics tomorrow. Jacket is smaller than I thought too. Fits more like a M Levis type 3 (or sz 40). I sized up thinking I could wear a hoodie underneath. Good thing, though. This one fits like my regular denim jackets (for just a shirt underneath).

    The Inchmaster (or when I bought it 10 years ago, the Bakersfield), can actually encourage you to overstretch the jeans because the clamp bypasses the top button. Imo, if jeans are stretched to the point where the top buttonhole tears, they're overstretched. This method is good for a max 2in stretch for size 32-34 jeans. If it needs more than that, better to cut your losses and sell it on. Anyway, this is more for me to squeeze into jeans after a winter weight gain. The ideal would be to buy jeans that fit in the first place.

    You can mod a quick release bar clamp to make your own waist stretcher. This one cost me $10 (jeans pictured not tcb obviously). The plastic ones on Amazon can break for denim over 21oz. I snapped mine in half forcing me to look for a sturdier alternative.

    So Ryo's reply to lefty said a OW size 33 measures 32.28in. I can work with that. My memorable sizing screw-up for comps was the Warehouse x BiG 660. Purchased a size way too big based on the thigh measurement (BiG 'style' measuring isn't the common way). Couldn't make the waist work, even with a belt. Tried to have the waistband shortened by this 'denim guru' in Manly (big mistake) and ended up selling that Frankenstein pair for $50. I'm usually gunshy about sizing up because of that, and I usually size down. That being said, I actually sized up on this pair and the jacket. If it's a little smaller than the measurements, it might work out, but we'll see.

    Samurai Jeans

    The most iconic for me would be the s0500xx. The original competition jean.

    I remember the red tab being cut off, which was part of the reason I sold them. Glad you enjoyed them.

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Woah. 40 min? Thought I'd have a couple of days to purchase. Selfedge/Roy should really think about doing a preorder for the next one. Who knows how many pairs they could have sold if 80 pairs wasn't the ceiling. Also, I hate panic rushing to purchase anything. I did it for the first SE collab with Ironheart, and I'm not keen to ever do it again. If I can't take my time to buy something, it's probably best that I missed it.
