    Denime

    Ha! I have been looking at them daily and considering. Optimally I would like a bit less worn and I am not exactly hurting for another pair right now lol.

    Denime

    And yeah I agree with your previous point. The second hand market is pretty hot right now. Way more goodies more often than I remember ever seeing.

    Looks perfect @beautiful_FrEaK I am also on a hunt for a size 34 pair of orizzonti 66s. I have that 36 pair that is more anti-fit and I am curious to see the real fit. I love the 66 denim, very soft, almost fullcount levels of comfort.

    And fit!! Still a bit wrinkly from the wash but the fit is stellar. I've never been one to have a "rotation" but these will have to go alongside the Denime 66XX I am wearing now.

    Another oddity I found on these was on the arc on one of the back pockets. It is double sewn in two spots, looking as if it was done maybe as a custom job and definitely by hand.

    Well hot dog! On this episode of weird Wednesday, I bring you something I have never seen (okay one other very small pair but it was pretty worn). If you have seen some of my posts recently, I have been on a hunt for some early examples from each of the osaka 5 in a new state that can serve as "my" examples of each brand. This has turned into a bit of a problem with me chasing the rabbit, so to speak, through several pairs trying to find "the one" that ticks all the boxes. Well this is an interesting edition and one that I don't think I can top (for Evis) that is new (never washed), early, seemingly rare, that also fits me in a way I like. Okay enough justification of my problem: An exaggerated early Levi-esque sewn arc'd pair of water Buffalo 2501s:

    WW2 repro / detailed jeans

    Ah I am sensing some of the drama around this. Sounds like the year long waiting list I had access to a couple years back (that I thought was crazy enough) would have been the path of least resistance. Lol

    WW2 repro / detailed jeans

    WW2 repro still is and probably forever will be my favorite "type" of garment. From details, fit, to denim. It just has so much soul to it, with so many wonky details to get into and the grainy gray caste denims that are so good. I have been dying to try as CSF pair for several years but am confused and slightly turned off by the accessibility problem. I'm not opposed to paying second-hand prices (which seem to be $1k+) But even still I can't find my way to snagging a pair. From what I have seen, they sure seem like the end-all pair for my neurotic perfection quests. And yeah Nils, the rise on the TCBs is comical but otherwise, I have really enjoyed them.

    I'll get a fit pic up soon as well. I love this fit. Straight down from the hip.

    I acquired an interesting pair of M41001. My previous pair are some of the early non-laurel button version but I am a sucker for wartime details so I was looking for a pair with them as well. I came across these with details I hadn't seen anywhere. Levi's arcs with an unbranded tab.

    For ease of comparison 66XX:

    I think the 66XX still has a bunch of shrink in them and I don't like to put too much wear on a fit that's going to change so I chucked them in the wash for a hot cycle. Pray for my muffin top. While I wait I put on the Orrizonti 66s. The comparison is wild. I really love this fit. It's like a low rise 40s fit. Denim is so much softer as well. Completely different jean in look, fit and feel. Both are w36
