  1. If it's too low for a woman what should a man say?
  2. Huh, wasn't it the other way around? The 221 barely shrank?
  3. You need a proxy for Mercari. I have that pair above in 34 as well (as most of my jeans). So the 33 would not fit me.
  4. At least SugarCane is as clueless as we... https://www.instagram.com/p/C0logCBvjRc/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  5. Another beauty: https://jp.mercari.com/item/m65745803579
  6. I have no idea and I don't really care as the (my) likelihood to win is pretty low anyway. I might change my entry from Denime XX (Shins) to something new but I will first wait until it arrives.
  7. Nice packaging The back pockets also look rather slim
  8. Since it's an unsanforized fabric, of course I wash and shrink them down directly before I start wearing them. The second wash varies and depends on how dirty he jeans are or if they want to shrink them further if I have the feeling the first wash wasn't suficient. No hard rules here for me.
  9. Exactly, UK9 and couldn't be happier. A Fine Pair of Shoes recommended a half size up from my Paul Sargent and it is spot on.
  10. I wash them mostly inside out until they are faded enough and marbling shouldn't occur too much, then I switch to right-side out. My Denime 220 will probably washed right-side out next time
  11. I made the right decision Beautiful last, I prefer it to the Paul Sargent 87 last.
  12. Feeling a bit "British" today...the new Tricker's arrived and I am in love. Had to pair them with my Jamieson's sweater.
  13. Well, apparently there is demand...dunno who and why
  14. Winter wonderland as well here...
  15. I would say it's more grayish
  16. They are pretty similar. The 714 has a slightly higher rise (really just 0.5-1 cm) and is more tapered.
  17. The measurements look indeed a bit weird. If the rise would be lower and thus the waist wider I could understand that but right now the cut looks strange on paper.
  18. Seems like the 224 started to drop https://www.rogues.co.jp/smartphone/detail.html?id=000000010908 In comparison to the 221 the rise seems to be the same. The thighs are slimmer but the leg opening wider. We will see. Edit: more size charts have been published. The 224 seem to have bigger thighs and a stronger taper than the 221. Also a lower rise.
  19. Maybe this one will work better for you?! https://www.fromjapan.co.jp/japan/en/auction/yahoo/input/g1115806727/
  20. No, the older versions (at least Shins) are really slow faders. The Orizzonti pair is already worn so they won't qualify to be used.
  21. This threw me off as well first but I think it's correct. @julian-wolf can confirm This is probably a correct one: https://antiquejohn.thebase.in/items/79730442
  22. Mostly the price and the availability for a 17 year old model. And the leather patch looks a bit off
  23. I didn't know that fakes are now called "Fashion Reps" and it seems to be a big thing. https://www.reddit.com/r/FashionReps/ Also saw some "repros" of the old Sugar Cane 1955 model... https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=736763744157
