Back in highschool I bought a pair of Lot 10 Samurai S0500xx with that hairy 15oz Texas cotton. I loved them, but I fully duped myself in sizing. I was also, let's say, wider, then. But I persevered and wore them as much as I could. Still, I'm wishing I could wear this old pair. Years later, I tried a pair of Eternals. Beautiful denim, and so far have gotten more beautiful with infrequent wear, but the fit just doesn't do it for me, and they mostly stay hung in my closet unfortunately. After shopping around and trying different fits, PBJ's newish tapered fit seemed like the way to go, but nostalgia had me pretty hard and I wanted another go at that Texas cotton. I ended up with a brand new pair of Samurai S0511xx tapered fit, IN THE CORRECT size. I gave them a hot wash, no detergent, and partial tumble dry, and am getting them hemmed at Self Edge soon. Lot 10 S0500XX Been a huge minute since I posted anything, and I'm stoked to be back in it.
