  1. 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...
  2. ^^ 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
  3. 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.
  4. Those look nice Crash- are the gulls Osaka purple or Tokyo blue? If you don't want to keep them, keep me posted...
  5. 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!
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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)
  9. 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!
  10. I could be swapping my planned Fullcount Anniversary edition purchase next year for a pair of CSF having looked at the site!
  11. Yeah, ping me the measurements later mate (and price) when it's convenient and I'll see if it could work
  12. Is that an actual 31 or tagged buddy? If it's an actual 31 waist then it could be a contender...
  13. PS what size are those 2000 No.1s you've got Flash? (I have a feeling you're going to say 30 waist)
  14. Well, I've just got rid of my unworn 1101s to a friend, but I don't think I'll manage to slim down the collection as much as you Flash!
  15. Oh man, just yesterday I sent a brand new pair of 1101 13.7oz in 31 to a good mate of mine as they were sitting on my rail and not at the front of the rotation queue! If they don't fit him, I'll let you know as I love my 0105s. Let me know if you end up wanting to sell 'em...
