    I can recommend the DD-1003XX (1945 edition) and the DD-1003SXX (1943). Lovely WW2 details and a straight regular fit, fairly similar to a Fullcount 0105. The fabric is fantastic- a little neppy and full of character

    Great choices @devilva ! I went for Tokyo blue gulls when I got my No.1s way back in 2010. They will evolve beautifully

    There's a rumour that Levi's busted them and big time- and probably in no small part of the idiots that used to post "If I'm a 29 in an APC or Nudie or N&F, but want the Samurai 710xx with arcs and tab, is it true that BiG provide these illegal things?" Despite so many "ssshhhhh" comments...

    They won't shrink by much dude as they are already sanforised- give them a soak by all means for the starch, but you might need to get them hemmed as the length will not shrink by much

    Personally I think that leaving the original Levi's-non-Levi'sation of the brand is best- looks like Levi's but definite difference.

    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

    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...

    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!
  9. Full Count Denim Thread

    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 :-)

    Looks great Flash- but wasted if CSF start making shirts ! Jeans coming along nicely!
  11. Full Count Denim Thread

    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...

    ^^ 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

    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.

    Those look nice Crash- are the gulls Osaka purple or Tokyo blue? If you don't want to keep them, keep me posted...

    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!
