    Evisu is still loved!

    Gave my 66’s their first wash. In cold water with no spin. Air dry. They shrunk up all over but in a good way. Inseam shrank maybe .75”.

    Any Belgian Shoes fans on here? Been toying with the idea of a pair.

    Thats amazing! Glad they sorted you out. I wonder what happened? I emailed Hinoya and they hadn’t heard of anything like that. Same with Self Edge. Did they only shrink up in length or did they shrink all over as well?

    I just dropped my pair off at self edge today for a hem. Hopefully they haven’t started and I can grab them back tomorrow and give the jeans another wash.

    Yiiiikes. I hope that was a fluke! I’ve never experienced anything like that before.

    Got my 66’s from Hinoya today. Lighting fast shipping. These are the most perfect fitting jeans I think I’ve purchased in a loooong time. Now comes the tough decision of deciding on an inseam length.

    I visited the shop and tried on some different jeans in my same SC size and was def muffin topping in them. Could barley button them. Went up a size and they were too big in the top block so I ended up passing. Such a shame.

    Is the SC 66 cut the same as Mister Freedom’s 64??

    Thanks for the two helpful replies! So I’m looking at a pair of Norwegian front bluchers. The Shoe Mart says they’re on the Aberdeen last but the listing says they’re on the Barrie last. Maybe the seller is mistaken? Do either of you have experience with the NST? The inside is stamped with a B/D. What does that mean in terms of width??

    I’ve never own Aldens before, do they tend to run big? I’m a true 10.5 in most shoes. I’ve got my eyes on a pair on eBay rn but have been burned by purchasing shoes online a lot recently. Can’t get the sizing right.

    Scored some 47’s at the rose bowl today for $50. Looks like someone wore them for 6 months and washed them once. Still very dark. Nice cut on these. VERY slim compared to a sugar cane 47 in the same size.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Back in my younger and skinnier days I was squeezing into the 710s in a 34 (now on grailed fyi *wink*.) I can actually still fit them up my legs but they’re painted on and I wouldn’t be able to move (think Kramer in the tight jeans episode.) Now that I have a more “manly” (fatter) body frame I’m contemplating if a 36 will work. I do have 13” thighs so not sure. I think a 38 would be giant in the waist.

    Paraboot Michael owners: Did you go TTS or size down a half size? Everywhere I read said to size down half size and I did. My toes don’t hit right at the end of the shoe but they’re close. Heal definitely can feel loose so I can’t even imagine going TTS. Only issue I have is the toe box on one foot is tight but mostly from the top. Do these take a while to break in?
