  1. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    IMO Converse totally fucked the sizing of the One Star. The US size is now the same as the UK size ie a US 8 which used to be a UK 7 is now a UK 8. So what this means is that the 8 is way too small for me and the 9 is far too large. For reference, I'm a US8 in Cons 70s.

    Try searching the thread, the answers you seek are all there.
  3. 3sixteen Jeans

    Anyone interested in a pair of 3 month old 31" St 120x Shadow Selvedge? I put on some weight and can no longer fit them. Happy to do them for cheap for sufu members.

    I love orSlow, but when they try and update their collection with more modern pieces they sometimes miss their mark.
  5. Depends on what price point and style you are after. If you want premium quality you can't go past Native Sons or Effector for a made in Japan frame. Broadway and Sons are selling great aviators made by the original company that used to supply the US Air Force. There are plenty of options out there.

    It does seem like an overreaction on Fullcounts part. I meant the arcs in question were limited to the 50 or so odd pairs of the contest jeans. Plus I find it doubtful that you could claim that someone seeing them would think that it was a fullcount pair. They could have just done a cease and desist. Burning all the product just seems to be mean-spirited. The whole thing reminds me of supreme going after another brand because they used they same Barbara Kruger typeface that supreme jacked in the first place.
  7. I sell 3sixteen at work and have never had a pair split like that. I would also not advise anyone to size down on the ST cut. True to size for a slim fit or even size up one on the waist if the thighs and rise are too tight. typically you get .5" stretch on that fabric after around 30 wears. However not enough, in my opinion, to size down. If you are a true 32" I'm actually amazed that you managed to fit into a 31" To be fair to 3sixteen, it sounds like you wear given a pair of jeans that were too tight for you. Even well-constructed jeans will split if the fabric is under constant pressure.
  8. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    Iron Heart ones seem to be pretty popular. They actually own their own machines if I'm not mistaken?
  9. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    @i_denim Not at the moment. The other plain tees we usually carry are the blank heavyweight 3sixteen, however, they are out of stock.

    @Broark we have size 5 in stock and can ship worldwide. https://www.bigtroublestore.com/products/orslow-fatigue-pants
  11. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    @i_denim They are sanforised so minimal shrinkage is to be expected with a hot wash. You could try putting it in the dryer and that would probably yield some results. @SuperJackle We have some ordered for the store, So I'll report in when they arrive. They do seem to run larger than the normal tees from what I've already seen though.

    This is the size chart i got from orSlow direct.
  13. I find 70's run a little big compared to normal cons. I sized down one size from a 9 to an 8. 8.5 would have been perfect but the local distro dosn't carry half sizes.
  14. Okay thanks, I don't have one but can take it to my local shop and see what they can do.
  15. A bunch of threads are starting to unravel in the crotch area and some other areas of my jeans. What are my repair options? Is this going to be an easy job to fix or should I just wear these until they fall apart?
