  1. The only potential way is not to put anything in the back pockets, but as @chicote says they do just come apart but this is to be embraced- it's deliberate to mimic the broken arcs of vintage Levis. Even when the arcs come away, it leaves a darker line on the pockets so almost a ghost arc. 1101 is a fantastic cut- enjoy them and go with whatever happens to the arcs- all a part of the evolution and beauty of the jeans
  2. Just pulled the trigger on my first pair of Warehouse- DD-1003XX 45 model. Didn't need any more jeans, and currently on full time Fullcount duty, but already looking forward to this pair. Osaka 5 collection soon to be complete...
  3. Hey Emil, sounds like you are a true 32 waist then if the LVCs have some room, so I'd go with a 31 in the 0105, because they will stretch anyway. The 0105 is such a great cut and mine need a belt to stop them sitting on my hips so I think you'll be good!
  4. Hi Emil, whether raw or one wash, the general rule for Fullcount is size down one. I am a 32 in most brands but with Fullcount always a 31, regardless of which cut. Doesn't matter if it's standard banner denim or XX, just size down one from your usual size. 0105 is a fantastic cut, as is the 1101. And if you are looking to offload the OrSlow, PM me with some pics :-)
  5. Looks great Flash- but wasted if CSF start making shirts ! Jeans coming along nicely!
  6. I'm with you there @Bill_e_jean as I've got 5 pairs which I rotate between so really don't need any more Fullcount, but would like the 0105EX even though the Warehouse DD1003XX looks to be more interesting, and I don't have any Warehouse yet. I'll probably end up kicking myself if I don't get the 0105EX but I'm also hoping that Fullcount do their annual WW2 model this year despite the anniversary pairs. I'd prefer to hold out for that possibility or wait for whenever the next WW2 pair is released...
  7. ^^ Agreed, I think when you've been used to tight straight or tight tapered fits, the 2000s are going to feel loose but in reality they are like a regular/relaxed straight, with the 2001s being a true loose fit. You'll find they will shrink a little more and the more you break them in the better the denim settles. Enjoy the looser fits- I personally feel the tight straight/tight tapered has been done to death. Embrace the true repro cuts
  8. General rule for No.1 is size up 2 so if you're a 36 then go for a 38 tag and they will shrink to a 36, maybe a 35 but will stretch back out. The only size inconsistency I had was with No.2 denim which was a 30 inch waist on a tagged 32.
  9. Those look nice Crash- are the gulls Osaka purple or Tokyo blue? If you don't want to keep them, keep me posted...
  10. Looking forward to seeing some fit pics of the No.1 2001s Crash, as well as more of your new 2000s. I've started wearing some of my Evis 2001s recently as a 'comfy' pair as I pretty much wear Fullcounts all the time at mo, but the temptation to get some new No.1s is getting much stronger now. I wear them high water style anyway so inseam will probably naturally work for me!
  11. I have an untouched tagged made in USA pair on my rail, but size 32x36, and I keep debating whether to eBay them or soak them for a nice loose summer pair, but with several pairs of very early but mint condition MiJ Evisu 2001also sitting on the rail they have the priority...
  12. I agree with you John, I've got 4 pairs of the 15.5oz (0105XX,1101XX, 1100-14 WW2 1108XX) and one pair of the banner denim (1100-15 WW2) and my preference is for the heavier denim- it's so soft and so hardwearing. Still, my 1100-15 will get loads of wear when summertime arrives in the UK...
  13. Yep, I've got the 1101XX in a 31 and also the WW2 1100-15 (1101 cut) in the 13.75 denim, also in a 31. I'm also a 31 in the 1108XX and the 0105XX. in my experience, Fullcount sizes are the same regardless of cut, one wash or raw, standard or XX denim. That's why I love them- it's so easy and the differences in cut are subtle (although the 1108 is the slimmest I would go personally)
  14. It won't shrink any more mate, and it will stretch out pretty easily with wear depending on how much pressure is being put on the waistband! It's a great cut, great denim, and one of the most reliable in terms of shrink/non shrink and stretch. Hope that helps!
  15. I could be swapping my planned Fullcount Anniversary edition purchase next year for a pair of CSF having looked at the site!
