    Question regarding the cinch back.  Is there a right or wrong way to use it?  Meaning, i see some people tucking it behind the belt loop and others over it.  Just curious if there was an intended way or if its user choice.  



    @Foxy2 gotta say im really looking forward to your updates as Moscow (and Russia really) really interests me

    If you want/need to wear a belt you kinda need to put it behind the belt loop, so that's the way I did it even though I don't need a belt. Not sure what the 'proper' way is.

    Hi all, I'm going Japan this September. Do you know anywhere in Tokyo I can buy resolute jeans? I have check the main website, all the shop seems to be outside of Tokyo 

    Either hinoya or americaya had resolute when I was there last August. I forget which shop they were in, but they're right next to each other on the same street.

    interesting thoughts! Because while i was shopping around and reading reviews for a denim jacket, i found the TCB 50s to be more price competitive compared to all of our other beloved japanese denim brands (in regards to denim jackets) while also being a brand that delivers good quality. (plus volvo's wear just blew my mind, this board definitely has it's influences on consumers)

    The fact that this is my first denim jacket, I've decided to save some of my benjies for other signature raw denim later down the year. 

    Anyone wear or seen Skull jeans these days?

    I've been wearing a pair of 5507s for maybe 8 months of night/weekend wear. I'll try to take some pics soon and put em in the skull thread.

    I'm curious which brands you guys are buying still on Rakuten? 

    I just ordered some Iron Heart stuff from rakuten before they stop selling it on there. The price difference is pretty crazy, $190 for a flannel vs $345 from US/EU stores, $145 for a pull over hoodie vs $295. Of course I'll buy from a store if I go there and try something I want on, but otherwise rakuten is usually way cheaper.

    I think shops that do a lot of collabs is the way to go, offering something not available from Japanese retailers.

  5. Got mine the other day and the thigh measures 11.5" when the size chart said 12", was worried about something like this as I opted for the hand felled inseam. Other leg measurements match the chart though. Not too big of a deal they still fit and I was going for a slimmer fit with this pair anyway.

  6. Question about the s0500xx jeans. On BIG, the difference between the RAW vs OW on the leg opening is .25in but it says 4-6% shrinkage. Has anyone gotten .5in off the leg opening when trying to shrink these jeans?


    Im debating which fit might be better for me but don't know too much about how much Samurai jeans shrink/stretch. Currently debating between the s0511xx and the s0500xx.  

    My 0500s measure 7.75" at the hem after being hemmed to 30". Lot 15 waist 31, many hot washes and machine drys.

  7. What good is a coin pocket where you can't reach the whole way down... have to do a handstand to get your coins out :D :D

    Yeah I have to use 2 fingers, one to scrunch up the fabric so the other can reach the coins.

  8. Coin pocket depth. The Evisu's win by a mile at 11.4 cm, I can't even reach the bottom of them with my fingers.
