    If anyone is interested in a pair of Warehouse 1001xx size 32 that were raw and only warm soaked once, let me know. I should have gone for one size smaller I’m afraid. Only worn once! https://hinoya.shop/products/1001xx?variant=38120179957913

    Sorry for yet another post. I’m about to pick up a pair of raw 1001xx’s from Hinoya, but I’m unsure about sizing. I have a pair of used size 32 1001xx 15th anniversary that (I think came as one washed originally) that fit perfect. They’ve been washed a couple more times. I’m tempted to get the same size, but everything I’ve read says that raw 1001xx’s stretch completely back to raw size after time, which is a tick above 33.5”. I would prefer to not size down because I don’t want these to be too slim, but would these get too big in the waist if I ideally don’t want them to stretch above 16.5” ? edit: just bought a pair of size 32. Size charts seem to be different everywhere. Least risky decisions seems to be just stay with the size I already know worked once before.

    On a genuine note, it’s super interesting to invest time into digging into the archives and seeing how things change over time, seeing reactions to the 15th/25th anniversary drops as they are actually happening, etc. And of course a good amount of names are still posting here 10 years later!

    Those look INCREDIBLE. Excuse my lack of knowledge, but what’s the difference between regular and 25th 1001s? DSB treatment? edit: Nvm. 50’s are banner denim. Turns out if you read the forum for 2 hours straight, a lot of questions get answered.

    Sorry to keep posting questions, but has anybody heard about the Beams + Warehouse “Sekohan” order fair that happened in like November last year? Someone is selling a pair on Yahoo JP. If this is the banner denim, I might scoop these up… https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b1050372218

    Embarrassed to do this, but I’m selling off a pair of Warehouse 1001xx 15th Anniversary editions, size 32. I ended up loving the fit of these so much that in hindsight, I wish I would have paid a bit more and just got them new so I could have my own complete journey with them. Paid $220 to get these here to America; hoping to let them go for $200 shipped or an offer reasonable enough to help me get a jump start on picking up a new pair of 1001’s. And of course I’m willing to trade plus a little cash for a darker pair of 1001’s; I’m open to most versions of 1001’s! Here is the Grailed link for more pictures and details. https://www.grailed.com/listings/30116807-warehouse-warehouse-1001xx-15th-anniversary-edition

    So; I ended up taking the plunge and getting some 15th anniversary 1001x’s from a seller on Grailed. They had them listed for $375 with tax despite the seller not knowing the model number or the fact they were the 15th anniversarry version. But I talked them down to $200 shipped. They were a Malaysian seller that had tons of other designer goods, so they seemed happy to push them out. I got some mixed advice on the forum about if this was a good idea, and I’m still a bit mixed on if I made the right move to be honest. Fit wise, I am SUPER happy. Maybe not super flattering in most people’s opinion, but it feels like a classic straight fit to me. Don’t judge my work from home outfit too hard lol. My biggest issue is that color wise, I do wish I could have got these when they were a bit darker. But I will say I’ve never had a pair of jeans that looked quite like this. The weft looks slightly dusty. Not sure if that’s by design or if that’s just what happens when jeans are kept in a closet in Malaysia for like 10 years. But it any case, it’s interesting to me. I’ll give these a few wears and see what happens. At the worst, I now know I love the cut of the 1001’s. At best I fall in love with these. I’n any case, I spent too much to back out of these now! UPDATE: After wearing them for a day, I love the fit SO much that I have opted to sell these (and a couple other pants) and invest a brand new pair so that I can see the journey of these from start to finish.

    Definitely hear you. I’m a pretty militant budgeter, so the perspective here is basically this is the last splurge purchase I could make for at least 6 months or so. My problem is that I’m also obsessive and am easily swayed by finding weird gems like 15th anniversary fabric. Fortunately, my fiancé still loves me. In any case, I put in an aggressive offer since this guy has had them posted for so long. I can keep everyone updated on this misadventure if y’all are interested!

    Might make them an offer they can’t refuse… hopefully they don’t block me haha. I actually thought these were in rather good condition. Do they look over washed or something that I’m not seeing?

    Sorry for the second post, but would I be a fool if I thought these were indeed the coveted 15th anniversary 1001’s? The label doesn’t have 1001 on it for some reason, but the measurements seem spot on to a 1001. I’m thinking of making an offer… https://www.grailed.com/listings/24362898-japanese-brand-x-vintage-x-warehouse-vintage-ware-house-denim-jeans-japan

    Hey everyone, Warehouse noob here about to ask the ultimate noob question. I REALLY want to enter the 1001 world, but I could use advice on tagged waist sizing and stretch. I had a pair of TCB 50’s one wash in size 32, but that waist was a tiny bit too snug even after a month of stretch. I ended up getting the waist expanded by a tiny bit by a local denim magician. I think I read 1001 one wash sizes similar to TCB, but can anyone confirm that? I’m debating if I need to jump to size 33 or not. I also had a size 31 LVC 505’s a while ago that fit great if that helps. I can’t afford to buy a new pair (wedding + medical bills) so I’m hunting around for a secondhand pair, hence the sizing stress.
