    How do you like the fabric weight and weave for summer? I'm considering buying a pair to wear over board shorts on the way to and from the beach.

    They're RHT and I would call the selvedge color copper. Maybe someone else would call it caramel (that person being my girlfriend haha). Here's a photo in natural light. Does this bring any more information to light?
  3. Evisu is still loved!

    Not sure if the fabric is the same, but mine specifically state "made in Japan," "Japan made," and "hand painted seagull."
  4. Evisu is still loved!

    My new 2017 No.1 Private Stock jeans purchased from Evisu London. Couldn't be happier with the fit, fabric, and the sale price.
  5. Evisu is still loved!

    Scored a pair of No.1 2017 Private Stock jeans today in London, at the Evisu store. They were on sale for less than half price, and I had to have them. Evisu used the term "carrot" for this slim tapered cut, and it's warranted. These taper aggressively to the hem. I'll post photos after I have them hemmed tomorrow. Also, if anyone is local to the store they had at least one or two other pairs of No. 1 jeans on sale; including one slim straight with a cinch back.
  6. FS: Samurai Jeans Button Up Shirt sz M

    Bump. Price drop to $100 shipped, or best offer.
  7. This mechanics style shirt is a size medium, and from the "Samurai Club" collection. The shirt is brand new with tags and still in the packaging. It was only removed for the photos. Measurements are displayed in the photos. I'm asking $120 but I'm willing to listen to reasonable offers or trades. Feel free to message me. Price Drop - $78 or best offer! https://www.grailed.com/listings/1565839

    You'll have your chance, Janurary first. He just updated the main page of his website. The date is official and the photo of the shirts looks fantastic. I'll be picking one up as well. I can't wait.
  9. How do the rest of my fellow iPhone users view this forum on their phones? I feel like I need an app to optimize my mobiles experience on here. I used to strictly use my laptop on this site, but I find myself on the go a lot more often lately. Any suggestions? Also, I just got a pair of Oni 666zr from Blue In Green. I have to say, I loved the fit and can't wait to get them back post hemming.
  10. Samurai Jeans

    Finally getting around to posting about these jeans. I bought them from Blue in Green sometime in 2010, I believe. They were mainly my winter jeans back when I lived in New Jersey. I spent more hours shoveling snow in these than I care to remember. Then I moved to Cali and after a year they got retired. I just didn't love the fit anymore. So, after about 6 years (3 years of actual wear) and 3 washes I had them tapered by Railcar. Which is one of the best denim decisions I have ever made. It's revived them, and now they're currently my favorite pair of jeans. The durability of these jeans has far exceeded my expectations. They've needed just one small repair for a hole on the right thigh. No crotch repairs and the arcurates are still going strong. Also, if you have any questions about the Railcar taper service feel free to ask. P.S. The belt is a Samurai heavy weight stitched belt with a brass buckle. It's also from Blue In Green, it's about 7 years old. Edit: Here's the whole album http://imgur.com/a/8eVWX
  11. Pure Blue Japan

    Now that's a great fit!
  12. Pure Blue Japan

    I'm currently living in Okinawa, but I'll be back in California in a few weeks. How much do the duty fees usually come to? My girlfriend lives in London. I may just take the VAT tax with the free shipping to her and lick my wounds later... Edit: I'm just going to order a 31 from okayama and hot soak them. NC should be able to handle a borderline scolding soak.
  13. Pure Blue Japan

    Thanks for the find! I think those come out to $254 total. So, I don't mind that they're raw. Does anyone have any experience ordering from Cultizm? I don't want to incur any unforeseen duty fees or taxes.
  14. Pure Blue Japan

    Anyone know where I can snag a pair of size 30 Pure Blue Japan NC-011BK (preferably one wash) for close to the ¥23000 retail price ($200USD)? They're sold out on denimio. I emailed them and they said they have no scheduled date for a restock. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
