    I've just picked up the S0511XX in 35 waist and these have more room in the thigh than a FC 1108 but a decent taper. Post 2nd wash measurements flat Waist 34" Thigh 12.5" Hem 7.5"

    About to commit to my first pair of Samurai so511xx but they are 38” leg in raw. What’s the shrinking like on this denim? I want to end up with 33-34 inside leg so wondering how much to have hemmed. Cheers

    If anyone wants to grab a pair with arcs I'm selling the 1110 as postage to return them is £30. The thigh is too snug fo me https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/352612698344

    Has anyone purchased one wash FC? I received a pair from Okayamadenim and the patch was shrivelled and looked tiny like it had been boiled. Nothing like some of the ones on well worn pairs in this thread. Is this normal for one wash as my last pair of one wash I sold on so can't compare but their patch was like the raw from memory.

    The 44 were purchased in UK but as they are Levis they didn't ask where I purchased them

    Tricky situation. I've had great service for repairs from Levis in London, last one was a replacement zip on my 54's which have been well worn for a few years now. Can you take them to a Levis store in the US? I had my 44's fixed in the Meat Packing Store NYC in January by their tailors. Apart from alterations all my repairs have been free

    Fantastic looking 1890 - I'd love the 1901 to come out again

    Has anyone ordered from the FC online shop? As a non Japanese speaking Welsh man is it straightforward using google translate? I can see how to select products but get lost from there as to which part of the webpage you add to basket etc

    did you measure the inside leg of the 37 before they were washed? I'm thinking the 34 leg may be too short post soak after reading this

    Its interesting that their size guides suggest otherwise - the 1109 has the same hem as a 1108 but slimmer knees and thighs #bootcut. The 1110 have a high rise and wider thighs than a 1108 but from the knee down they are a very aggressive taper I had to peel mine off after every wear. tigerstrom 1101 look great but again the okayama sizing suggest these are slimmer than a 1108 and I find the thigh on these too tight in my usual 34 waist (don't know why this is bold text sorry all)

    the 37 will not be made available in 36 leg unfortunatley as Levis are saving the cone denim according to LVC London
