  1. Some recent finds. Nice variety of tabs. The Evis jeans were a random £20 pick up from ebay and I only realised they were Evis when they arrived. The two Evisu 2001 jeans are No.1 and originally a 36 waist and the Evis 2504s are No.2 denim in a 34 waist. This might have been something that was obvious to anyone else on here, but I was surprised to find out that the measurements for the No.2 denim was the same for the shrunk No.1 denim - so a 34 in No.2 is the same size as what you would expect a 36 in No.2 to shrink to. Am I just being thick in only just noticing this? I've always assumed that any cut in No.2 would be a looser cut but it seems that it *should* size to the same dimensions as if you'd bought the correct size in No.1 and shrunk it. I've never compared them side by side like that so maybe that's why it's only just occurred to me. Anyway... The first pair is on ebay for sale, I'm getting the Evis pair tapered slightly and the pair with the white gulls will be held in reserve!
  2. These are the MiJ jeans I won on ebay a few months ago for £1. No patch on the back, but the original fit suggested 2001 but the dimensions were slightly off - like the proportions weren't quite matched up. I've got a pretty good local tailor and we took a reconstructive approach, slimming down the legs a bit, and bringing the seat of the jeans in whilst still keeping the daicock joined up when the work was finished. I'm pretty happy with the end product, see what you guys think. Excuse the changing room pics!
  3. They were very fast in getting back to me with confirmation when I asked. They rely on the manufacturer's measurements as far as I can tell, the 2000s I bought were sent straight from Evisu themselves so Denimio acted more like a broker or proxy. Don't know if that's their business model per se as I've only used them once. The measurements for my 2000s were accurate anyway. And they have a good returns policy.
  4. They look ok from the pics...unusual daicock though and you don't often see that inner label on Evis jeans. Also, have they been hemmed and had the original hem bottoms reattached?
  5. An old cut used by Evis back in the day. Think it was only ever this model above tbh. I had a pair a while back and shared them on here. Some great pics there by the way!
  6. Yeah, 2000 and the pre soak measurements on denimio were accurate - I've linked them in a post above. Post soak you're looking at a 32 inseam and and actual (flat waist of 35 now it's stretched out a bit from regular wear. But... don't put too much stock in these measurements because: - I wore them during the soak so the waist remained pretty much the same as presoak - I only soaked them for 20ish minutes so the inseam length is probably longer than it would be if you soak for longer. Also worth bearing in mind that in my limited experience from breaking in two pairs of No.1s, the inseam length often doesn't reach its final length until after a few washes, hence my saying that these will only be cold washed from now on as the inseam is just perfect for my taste now. Choosing the 35 presoak size was just an educated guess - I've not bought a brand new pair of jeans for ages. At least it's easy to return with Denimio.
  7. You're speaking from experience there, ent ya? I've been pretty lucky with the stuff that I've picked up over the years. I'm going to let those 2001s go though, so if anyone is interested then get in touch as they are going on eBay tomorrow.
  8. These are the 2001s that landed yesterday. Tagged 36, they are now a 32 waist and inseam is just under 34. Not sure yet if I'm keeping these as I have enough denim for now. Nice pair though.
  9. Still 2000s but better pics now they've dried out lol. Very happy.
  10. The inseam is just over 32" by a fraction. That was after 20 mins sitting the bath at the warmest temperature I could be comfortable in. 2001 used to be my favourite cut but my preference is for slimmer these days which is why I went for a second-hand pair to save some cash if I didn't like the fit any more - plus I've got these 2000s and those Evis carpenter pants to wear from raw now anyway...
  11. It's about that - I'll check when I'm back home in a bit. I think it will drop a little lower than in the pics above once the starchiness has gone. They're a much more comfortable fit than my previous pair, still tight across the lap though but not in a bad way. I should be getting my hands on that second-hand pair of 2001s bought from Rakuten later on today or tomorrow so will be no.1 heaven after so long without the stuff!
  12. Cheers. They are dry now obviously, and still have a lot of starch in them but I'm not gonna soak them any more...Time to wear...
  13. Popped into my local tailor's shop for a fitting for some alterations so took full advantage of his mirror! Still damp 2000s. Only gave them a 20-minute soak and they are the shortest inseam jeans I've ever worn. I like the fit, and I expected the length to be like this. Fair to say that these will never ever ever ever be going near hot water in the future!
  14. Consistently inconsistent! That's a decent model. The store looks amazing too.
  15. And get all that extra room? Fuck that too! Currently dripping indigo onto my carpet - luckily it's dark blue anyway, ha!
