    I am with you. I don't know but it also looks like the constructional stitching changed. Less variety of colors and thread sizes (but maybe this also means more durable than before?!) I could be wrong though but overall, yes, it looks boring

    I think the second hand market for denim is quite dead anyway. Raw denim is very easy to get nowadays at affordable prices. So unless you are selling grail items or sought after items (Mister Freedom stuff or some IH gear towards the IH crew) you rarely get a good price anymore. I also agree @ecsong187 about the pocket spacing...typical Lee and not for everyone. But there are still lots of people (apparently) order new jeans from WH, whether they know about the "Lee arse" or not.

    Maybe because the guys ordering from him want to have the jeans exclusively made for themselves by him, they see those jeans as one-off jeans and are willing to pay a pretty penny for it. So with that mindset, why buying a pair that wasn't made exclusively for them? Or with the amount of delay, there is quite a big number of rush orders and people willing to pay that much money wouldn't care at all for the second hand market.

    Hi Pedro, you can buy the 40401 in non-wash/raw here from Pants SHop Avenue. http://pants-shop-avenue.com/item/SC40401/ Just write Naoki a mail and he will sor you ot. The pro of one-wash: you know how small the jeans will get. I don't see any cons although if you prefer to wear jeans raw for higher contrast that is of course a con for you In my experience the 50/50 denim doesn't shrink as much as some other unsanforized jeans but I don't have exact numbers available.

    I am completely with you Ryan, I would also prefer if he sticks to the stitch by stitch reproduction but I guess he still needs to run a profitable business What I always thought, it would be nice if he would use a more authentic leather patch In terms of print/embossing

    That's a nice photo dump Julian! Those 1955 were a special edition AFAIK, not a regular model in their line-up. Looking forward to rear your spotlight. Also, the 40200 faded a lot more than I thought they would.

    Have you paid attention to how the shops measure their jeans? I know Self Edge does it differently. It's best to refer to their measuring guides

    I still have a pair of SC40400 in an "as new" condition laying around somewhere...

    I don't understand why people are still ordering from him given the wait time. Or are those mainly guys not so active on forums and not knowing what to expect? Or are so many people ordering via rush order?

    And a fit update of my '47 pair in size 38 I got in Japan during my honeymoon. I might give them another hot wash to shtink them down a bit more, especially the inseam.
