    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I love it, but it is a slow fader and the post-wash electric blue is probably not everyone’s cup of tea. For the initiated, its about as good as modern American denim gets (RIP Cone). The vertical fade and slubs are interesting without being exaggerated like a lot of Japanese denim and while the overall fabric looks saturated and keeps its color longer, the edges pop for nice fades on seams, and even the shell stitching, rather quickly. Roy cuts aren’t tight, so while you won’t likely get a stereotypical high-contrast “SuFu fade,” you do get a good-looking, comfortable, and hard-wearing denim that looks better with age. Here are a couple pics, will try to follow up with some better ones in natural light tomorrow. Fair to say there aren’t enough or as many Roy fade photos as other brands, I think given there just aren’t as many pairs floating around!

    Nice Shredwin! You were looking for that for a while, right - where did you finally find?

    I somehow talked myself into both and miraculously got an order notice, but not holding my breath until they actually ship. Have been burned ordering Roy’s from SE before. Either way you win though - a new pair of Roys, or a few hundred dollars more in the bank:)

    At the end of the day, they still sold 80 pairs of jeans for $430 a pop in 30 mins. Not a bad day’s work. Some people definitely bought for resale, but you have to be pretty into Roys to even be in on the appeal of this particular batch.

    Surprised they’re even more than the indigo lovers...supply and demand in full effect.

    The Flat Head

    No, they were tagged 38x36, inseam measured 37, shrank to 35 1/8 after a warm wash and have stayed there through two more washes. The thing is, I have two more pairs of raw FH stashed, all diff styles, all tagged 38x36, and all have diff inseams; range is from 37 to 39. Part of that is different rises, but most is just pair to pair variance

    The Flat Head

    I have a pair of BSP-AI from SE, and they shrank 1.6“ in waist and an inch in length after a warm soak, and 2.1“ in waist and 1.8“ in length and 1/4“ in thigh from original raw measurement) after warm wash/line dry. Waist has stretched back to original size after a month, and contemplating putting them in the dryer (the blasphemy!) to get any last shrink out. Love these jeans and the denim fades fast to a beautiful blue. Have a raw pair of the 3005 AI that I‘ve stashed and raw it looked to be pretty much the same denim. That said, the two jeans had very different actual measurements though tagged the same, and rises were different, so maybe not apples to apples.
