    I’m considering purchasing some 66xx’s from the Denime site and just want to make sure I’m doing it correctly (I’m in the US) i find my size and click “delivery overseas” which opens a new window to buysmartjapan.com where I have to pick my size again, I’m assuming? On the buysmartjapan page under purchase specs is a list of japanese words with numbers in them. I’m assuming are different sizes. So I should pick the one that has “33” if I want a size 33, correct? thanks in advance for the help.

    Anyone have recent chainstitch hem examples from SELA, Indigo Proof, and/or Railcar? I have 2 pairs in need of hemming.

    Thanks for the tip @Robert Langdon! I did the same and the rep gave me a price adjustment too! Rep said 2-3 days for refund to process and an additional 3-5 for it to post to my account.

    So a couple weeks into wearing my 2000 no.1 and I'm loving the fit now. So much so that all my slim straight/tapered jeans now feel like skinny jeans. Now I'm researching fuller cuts for my next pair, but that will be a whiles off. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the cut and especially the denim of these no.1 Evisus. Took a picture that actually shows how hairy these guys are!

    Wearing my Evisu lot 2000 no. 1's out for the 4th time and I'm still getting used to them. In some pics they look good, but in others just look sloppy (1st & 3rd pics look sloppy, 2nd pic looks fine). I think I could have sized down one, but I'm not sure sizing down 1 would fix my worries. For you guys with the fuller cuts, is that what they look like at odd angles or is the cut too big or not right for me?

    Thanks everyone! These are a tagged size 36w. I usually take 33w jeans and stretch them to a 34w true waist. So I sized up 2 from my true waist. These were also hemmed to 32.5" by the original owner. here are measurements I took in inches (BIG style): Pre-soak: Waist - 17.75 FR - 11.5 RR - 14.75 Thigh - 13.5 Knee - 10.375 Inseam - 32.5 Hem - 8.875 Post-soak Waist - 16.5 FR - 10.375 RR - 13.75 Thigh - 13 Knee - 9.5 Inseam - 29 Hem - 8.25

    Finally have time to post some pictures of my new Evisu 2000, no. 1 redline. I'm usually a fan of slim straight or slim tapered cuts, but Evisu 2000's have been on my wishlist for a while (1st pair into trying to complete the Osaka 5). So when a great deal came up on a new pair (thanks @HAZARDkid!!!), I quickly grabbed them. When I first received them, they were huge on me, but I know how famous the redline no.1 denim shrinks, so I was optimistic that they would shrink up to the right size. Pre-soak pics: I did a soak in the hottest water my tub put out, hung dried until damp, then put them in the washer for a hot wash (no spin cycle), then tossed them in the dryer. After they were dry, I got them wet again and tossed them in the dryer one more time just to ensure all shrinkage was done. I'm pretty sure they won't shrink any more (correct me if I'm wrong). But here's the post-shrinkage fit: The waist/hip area is snug (not tight), and I feel like they'll stretch to the perfect size. Like I said, I'm used to wearing slim straight and slim tapered cuts, so the extra room in the thigh is weird right now (look at the rear picture and all the extra denim causing the fold at the back of my thighs). They're super comfortable and the denim is amazing, and I know that it's good to have different cuts in your rotation. Let me hear your guys' opinion on the post-soak fit.

    Nice jeans bram!!! Did you take pre-soak measurements and if so what webshop has the most accurate measurements? Would also be interested in post soak measurements too (waist, thigh, knee, hem).

    Garden gnomes, that denim looks amazing! Can't wait to see the post soak measurements and the measurements after they've stretched back out after a few wears. I've always wanted some Evisu but wasn't sure about my sizing (between a 34w and 35w). Tigerstrom, can we get some measurements of your 34's after a few wears too?
