  1. Uniqlo/SOC 727/Vans
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Thanks for the link! Warehouse 900's have been on my want list. Anyone know How much duties I would get hit for?
  6. 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).
  7. Crosspost from Momotaro thread:
  8. Momotaro 0705sp - 1.5 years old, 1 initial soak, 5+ machine washes
  9. 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?
  10. RRL Slim (japanese denim):
  11. Momotaro 0705sp These are my "comfortable" jeans since they are looser than I was expecting. These are size 33w and hemmed to 30.5" (yes, I'm that short that I can still double cuff a 30L jeans). Not used to the larger hem on these (8.25") but I guess I should have expected a bigger than normal leg opening after chopping 4" off the length.
  12. The stitching around the top button hole on my Samurai 710x came off. Am I in danger of the button tearing through the hole?
  13. sorry about bumping up an old thread but I think I love this girl in this AT&T Commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lffqM4ZVF4U her name is Ingrid Haas
  14. Had to wash my Samurais b/c my dog peed on my lap.... 10 months: Comparison from day 1 to 10 months....(I had these suckers hemmed like 3-4 inches so that's why one leg is shorter than the other)
