    i really hope this happens at some point... would pay for a custom build to get 50s denim in that cut if i could. has inoue said anything about doing something like this in recent times? i know someone said it was a possibility, but that was before the 50s slim came out.

    looking forward to pics of this pair - would love to see the fabric/texture closeup as well. anything you can tell us about it compared to banner denim and others? is it breathable, how does it pucker/marble, etc? wonder when we will see more cuts with this denim.

    Full Count Denim Thread

    looking for a sz33 1101 (the old version... with or without arcs/tab), if anyone has one please get in touch! almost ordered a pair of 1101w from standard and strange, but after asking about some measurements on a sz33 they realized the cuts have changed for their newer stock and it’s pretty drastic on the 1101 (i thought it was just the 1108). it’s just not going to work for me... front rise and back rise are way higher so it’s not like i could just taper. i don’t think anything in the new full count lineup fits me. 1108 thighs are too small, 1101 and 0105 rise is too high. anyone know of any other possibilities? i imagine getting someone like indigoproof to lower the rise on something is crazy expensive if it’s even doable.

    i was under the impression the 50s thighs in a sz33-34 were closer to 13” than 12”, but the previous page has someone posting a 12inch thigh for a sz34?? is this right?

    Denime

    so does anyone have a pair of the 30th XX or 66? does the texture have any horizontal slub like the shins/orizonnti pairs tend to have? in the pictures on denimio it’s really hard to tell. pomata’s pair looks nice but i can’t tell if that’s the 30th fabric or something else.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    better unsanforized projectile denim for STF would be fine (maybe even better than selvedge would end up)... something closer to 80s/90s/early 2000s STF. the problem i have with levi’s is the same i have with pretty much all cone denim - streaky non-uniform indigo that looks sanforized even when it isn’t. it shouldn’t be hard to make a projectile denim with a uniform(ish) indigo and a nice subtle texture (not artificial looking vertical slub without the horizontal to balance it out). add some nice puckering/marbling you see with just about every older pair of levi’s with projectile denim and i have a very hard time believing they wouldn’t sell. all of the “vintage” levi’s people buy in shops these days is projectile and you have a pretty much endless supply of mills to utilize... not to mention the additional flexibility when it comes to tapering. if i had the know-how i would try to produce jeans like this (japan-market could have tabs and maybe even arcs like full count/warehouse). i know i would pay $100 for a pair like that and even a smaller scale company could prob sell a little lower (levi’s lower than half that).

    Denime

    is there a specific reason people are ordering from naoki and not denimio? is it to get the original hem? anyone have an idea how breathable the 30th XX denim is? the 66 denim looks interesting and appears to be a little lower in tension from pictures of the weft, but i’m also curious if it has a similar texture to classic denime (nice but subtle horizontal slub, etc). the fit on on both the XX/66 could be perfect for me (big thighs, front rise not too high, don’t need a longer inseam). the XX hem is bigger than i’m used to but probably looks decent once everything breaks in and drapes right.

    trying to figure out my size on the 2nd hand 1101. i usually get a sz33 with the expectation of stretching to 34. 【Size 34】> Waist (W)-82 cm MId-Thigh (T)-32 cm Front Rise (F)-29.5 cm Back Rise> (B)-39.5 cm Length (L)-72 cm Hem Width (O)-20 cm> 【Size 36】> Waist (W)-87 cm Mid-Thigh (T)-33.5 cm Front Rise (F)-30 cm Back Rise> (B)-40 cm Length (L)-72 cm Hem Width (O)-21 cm i have no idea what to expect with stretch here... i emailed warehouse and they told me to expect “3 cm of stretch”, but that seems a little low? sz36 at 34.5” could end up being 36-36.5”, but i suppose a belt mostly avoids the problem. this will be my first pair with a higher front rise (above 10.5”) and i’m nervous about that so i also prefer the lower FR on a size 34. maybe it won’t be a problem because with the short hem wearing it lower on the waist will balance everything out (otherwise it’s over my belly button).
