    Full Count Denim Thread

    maybe some retailer can get full count to make a cut like the 1108/(old)1101 with bigger thighs and hips (eg closer to 13 instead of 12 inch thighs). i love the 13.7oz fabric enough that i’m still wearing my pair of 1108s because a better cut doesn’t exist in their current lineup (who can pull off an 18” back rise??). i doubt the arcs/tabs are ever coming back (why they wouldn’t in japan is beyond me), but full count’s “flagship” denim is a bonafide classic and i don’t want this to be my last pair in it.

    New Contest Suggestion [Poll]

    *chant* warehouse warehouse warehouse (i actually just managed to buy a pair of the 1946 denim so i’m looking forward to getting those in the mail... new denim, banner denim, or even the 12oz “2nd-hand” denim that has only been used in one-wash state a few times would all be great)

    TCB

    a 50s cut that would stay closer to 8.2-8.5inch opening after a shorter hem would be fantastic. maybe a very slight reduction in rise (hopefully not much shorter - eg. sz34 FR 11.5-12, BR 15.5). i imagine inoue would sell a ton of those. i have been meaning to get a pair of 50s and taper them a bit for that kind of fit, but it would be a bummer to miss out on that incredible roping from TCB’s chainstitch.

    been wanting to see how new 30th anniversary denim fades... it doesn’t appear to have the same texture (especially the horizontal warp slub you see so often in “classic” XX/66 denim), but that’s just looking at the raw/one-wash pics so i could be wrong. it would be fantastic if someone could offer a few inseam lengths to preserve the taper of a cut when it’s worn shorter kind of like resolute does (although i’m 5’10 and i don’t know how many people care about this). might be too hard to pull off, but it could be limited to something like 28, 32 and 36.

    is the rise on the XX smaller than the TCB 50s? some XX cuts seem to be somewhat shorter and others don’t so i’m curious how this one compares.

    we haven’t really seen the new warehouse denim fade yet so i think it would be a nice choice for a contest, but i’m also just kicking myself for not getting a pair of the 46 1003xx. tender isn’t my thing, but i can see it making an interesting comp.

    i would love to get a pair in the new warehouse denim and the 46 seems like a pretty nice cut that should work for most people. something like the fw47 cut seems to have a much higher rise and i'm not sure if i could pull it off. i have been wondering if WH will bring the new denim back for the january catalog, but when i asked (about a month ago) they would only say they had nothing planned (other than the jacket). would be great to see some pics of how it fades as i think a few people on here got the 46.

    question about the (old) 0105 - from measurements i’ve seen it looks like the waist is bigger on these compared to 1108, etc? so for an actual 34inch waist would a 32 or 33 work? been wearing 1108s (w34) for about a month and the 13.7oz denim is just as great as everyone says it is, but the thighs/hips are just too tight. can’t find any 1101s so i am thinking maybe 0105 will work with a slight taper.

    what chambray are you wearing? looks pretty nice (i always liked blue buttons on indigo chambray).

    Warehouse

    i found a pair of the 1951 DDs on rakuten i’m thinking about grabbing, but i am going to have to get a hem... anywhere i can send them that will get a decent approximation of the original roping? i wish i didn’t sleep on the one-wash 2nd hand 1101/1100... perfect fit for me, just the right length and that classic 66/XX coin pocket wrinkle.
  11. i didn’t go for this pair because i was too picky about the back pockets, but the denimbridge fabric looks fantastic. i hope i can get a chance to pick up a different pair from them - anyone ordered from DB?
  12. keeping the rise from being too high is a good idea... i personally have always preferred straight-tapered fits as they do seem to be the most versatile (IH 633, FC 1101, etc). i have found at my size (33/34) i really don’t want the front rise being much higher than about 11.5”, back rise 15.5. likewise the thigh (for me at least) needs to be 12.5” minimum and 12.7-13 is even better, but as you know the hips and rise have a big part in that. hemming to a 28-29” inseam the width is ideal somewhere around 8-8.2” (8.5 inches being the widest i can pull off). a big tradeoff in how much taper is lost after the hem is how much knee room will be left - in that respect id rather lose the taper than have it come in too tight at the knees.

    Warehouse

    looking at the warehouse slim belt in natural... anyone worn one of these? i’ve never actually spent real $$ on a belt so i don’t know what is/isn’t worth it, but my current one is falling apart and i haven’t found any i like thrifting.
  14. anyone know if indigoproof can do a hem like this? need to get a taper/hem and not sending a pair to two places.

    the fabric looks wonderful, but it also looks like it’s very high tension... does it breathe well at all?
