    My experience with the 66s was that although they are larger in most measurements compared to the 76s. The actual waist was slightly smaller than the same size in the 76s. So i could wear 30" in the 76, but then the 30" in the 66 was too tight in the waist. I should have copped a 31" to make them work for me. So personally I could not advise sizing down in the 66s.

    Moonstar stuff is really well made. Unfortunately, as with most things made in Japan, it attracts a higher price point. I had a pair of cons 70s which lasted three months before the canvas toe box split from the rubber. My pair of Doeks made at Moonstar lasted a year of almost daily wear, before I wore through the sole.

    Some evolution pics of my 76s shot on iphone. The denim seems slow to fade. This is around five months worth of wear and two washes, one soak.

    Yeah you are right. I thought No Kipple used to have a raw and one wash variety. After checking Trophy's page it seems they only come in one wash.

    I thought Trophy sold raw in their store in Tokyo. Maybe I'm misinformed.

    @mandel9000 The boots and jeans look great together.

    I would say that yes the waist would fit the same.
  8. Sorry I've never heard of the circle brand. Maybe some other users can help you out. Without knowing the denim I would say wash on the hottest setting and stick them in the dryer.
  9. It depends on the denim and brand, whether is sanforised or not. You need to list some examples to get a definitive answer.

    I think the argument regarding organic vs non-organic cotton is mainly around how much better it is for the environment in terms of chemical use for example, rather than an actual better performance or quality of the actual threads.

    If you fit a size 2 in the fatigues a size 2 in the 105s should work for you. If anything the 105s are a touch roomier in the waist than the fatigues.
  12. Wrangler Repro Appreciate Thread

    So the consensus is that there is not a Wrangler repro line akin to LVC outside of Japan?

    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.

    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.
