  1. Warehouse

    Ordering from Warehouse JP was super easy for me, problem was the UK customs absolutely taking my pants down as Warehouse put the full value on the customs form. Not great when Warehouse had sent the wrong jeans! They sent the replacements marked as a gift, and after asking I also got a discount on the first pair rather than sending them back. Not ideal spending more that month, but having both the DD1003SXX and the DD1003XX is ideal! Great communication from them too. If customs aren't an issue, you're laughing. For me, I'll now just wait until my planned Japan trip in 2020 before I stock up, and carry on buying from Son of a Stag for the tees/ sweats in the meantime.

    Size down 1 from your usual size mate - I wear 32 in Warehouse, but always 31 in Fullcount

  5. I think some appreciation and respect of opinion is required here - the fact that we, as a global denim tribe care enough to view, comment and rep on this forum (and specific thread) with different opinions is to be celebrated and we should appreciate that. It's a tragedy that Cone is closing which I'm sure we all agree, and it's easy to either celebrate and dismiss the different Japanese denims, again with good points on both sides (e.g. Oni/PBJ versus Fullcount and Warehouse in terms of cut/texture) and therefore fall into the 'Cone isn't as good as the Japanese versions' type brawls. Just because it's a Cone thread about closing down doesn't mean someone can't voice a negative opinion (just as is the case in other threads!) about their experience, just as it shouldn't be a gushing obituary from those who didn't purchase but now realise what is about to be extinct (just like when all the great comments come out after a forgotten celebrity dies, too late!). Long message short- we are all one tribe, opinions are to be encouraged because it shows we all care about denim, and now, the repercussions.
  6. What are your favorite jeans?

    Hmmm, tricky with over 30 pairs to choose from but the following are faves/go to's : 1) Fullcount 0105xx - a cracking all round straight cut (and the WW2 versions) 2) Fullcount 1101xx- same as above but with a subtle taper 3) Evisu 2000 No.1- amazing denim 4) Warehouse DD1003XX (1943 and 1945 versions) Recent purchases and I love them already- similar to the Fullcount 0105 in terms of fit but the denim is very neppy and full of character 5) Eternal 811- the cut is a classic straight and the denim is so so dark when new
  7. Warehouse

    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
  8. Evisu is still loved!

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

    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.
  12. Full Count Denim Thread

    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
  13. Warehouse

    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!
  15. 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 :-)
