    HATSKI denim

    20 pairs is insane! do you have the 'wide taper' cut? apparently it was only released just before christmas, but i only found out after making my order for the loose taper. might try it in a year or so. agreed with short inseam, particularly because i have short legs for my height. getting other repro denim taken up with a proper chainstitch is/was always an expensive pain in the ass.

    HATSKI denim

    photography is not my strength and it seems like the files have compressed a lot with uploading. measurements are somewhat deceiving, especially the waist, as these are a much higher rise (a positive for me) than pictures may suggest. denim feels somewhat flat and even without much slubiness. i really like the subtle 'h' on each button compared to the same old crested donut, too.

    HATSKI denim

    it's funny you're the first to reply - when i was posting i thought you would be one of the few that might be interested based on your previous fits (denime, 60s cuts with short inseams etc) over the years. from memory we have similar measurements, too (i'm 186cm/85kg).

    HATSKI denim

    description from namu shop, which i believe is one of only two retailers currently carrying the label outside of japan: Based in Osaka, HATSKI [Hatsuki] was launched in 2016, making it one of the youngest labels we carry. Focused purely on jeans, HATSKI leverages some of the most impressive, high quality denim for modern, playful fits. We’ve found their pared-down philosophy and hard-to-find fits (higher waists, roomy cuts, and sleek tapers) to be a breath of fresh air. They cite nature as their primary inspiration, specifically citing the month of August, lush skies, and clear waters as inspiration – we’re not completely sure how those things tie back to denim, but for us, it captures nicely how good you feel in a pair of HATSKI jeans. anyway, i remember reading about them on heddels years ago and decided i wanted to try something different beyond the names everyone knows and loves. i get the impression the label and cuts won't appeal to the repro stronghold on here, but thought they were worth posting about anyway. they make three main cuts: the straight, the loose taper, and the regular taper all in selvage, multiple washes, and sizes 0-5. i bought the loose taper (HTK-22001) in one wash, size 5 from them directly and despite some language barriers and being sent the incorrect size initially, it was a smooth process overall. happy to post some photos of the jeans, labels etc if people are interested as (english) information on the label is limited, but in the meantime you can check them out on IG at @hatski_official, or https://www.hatski.shop. similar to orslow, one huge plus for me is didn't need to hem my pair at all due to the short inseam (noting i'm tall at 186cm, but also have short legs for my height).

    Superdenim community sale thread

    @CSL i went from a US10 to a US12 when i was about 24 years old (i'm almost 36 now) and actually posted about it on sufu at the time. i was tested for acromegaly and other sorts of other conditions but all the tests were negative, so it was chalked up to just one of those weird things. it is obviously common for pregnant women to experience an increase in shoe size, but apparently it happens to runners and some cyclists, too. thankfully i'm 6'1/186cm so the change in foot size didn't look strange (a US10 is actually considered below average for someone of my height anyway), although selling/giving away all my footwear wasn't so great...

    to sell: ebay, styleforum (still lively compared to here), grailed. if it's a particular popular or "hype" piece, then it's worth throwing on depop as well.

    BAPE & Nigo's origins

    my understanding is he didn't come from wealth (his dad worked in a metal yard from memory) unlike many of his contemporaries. he studied at bunka and got a job at popeye magazine, both of which opened a lot of early doors/connections to him.

    Imperial Jeans

    it's interesting they decided to come back after so many years of radio silence, even moreso since kiya seems to suggest there will just be one (final) release and no future plans. i remember trying on a pair of shearers over a decade ago now.

    can anyone comment on sizing for the seamens? i have a bit of TCB, but no pants - the closest thing i own are wrecking crew overalls in sz 36. usually wear a 33-36 in most trousers/denim, so was tossing up between 34/36.

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    i have a well-worn TCB type 2 (OG version/cut) that i love and still has a ton of life, but i've sadly put on weight and can't button it up at all anymore. what would be a good type 2 replacement? orslow looks decent, although something a hair cheaper would be ideal... i should also say i'm very fussy with sleeve length on denim jackets (prefer shorter if anything) and my TCB is perfect in that regard.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    it's interesting in that i had the exact same experience with my '66s. the first maybe six months were great, but then they just shrunk too much over time (particularly at the thigh). i'd like to try again in the future in a size up.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    re: previous page, my normal wedding outfit these days include trickers ilkley in brown zug (half size too big, but got them on crazy discount) + a navy ripstop casual "suit" by nigel cabourn. i'm sure grenson or similar have a more affordable alternative.
