    Double Volante

    Has anyone ordered from Double Volante in recent years? If so, did you do it in-person in Japan or through Instagram? What's the current custom offering? Historically it seemed like there were a number of denims available, a lot hardware (rivets, buttons, zippers) available, a variety of custom details available if you asked for it, but only the 47 and 66 cuts (though you could get a slimmer version of either cut if he sewed the seams differently I think), is that still the case?

    If anyone is looking for the Leepro 1002, it looks like Standard and Strange just got a full size run

    Real Japan Blues - Jeans & Shirts...

    My RJB RFR-04, I've had them since 2017 or so, worn on and off (for a long time I worked an office job with business casual so I was only wearing them on weekends). Unknown number of washes, but I would wash them every 6-8 weeks as they got dirty, so there's probably been at least a dozen washes at this point. The contrast is what I would characterize as moderate, which is my preference (the low contrast vintage fades are too subtle for me, but the no wash / high humidity / walking 20 miles a day ultra high contrast that used to be popular was also a bit too much for me), and I think the denim looks pretty good at this level of contrast

    Selling my IHW-02 in Grey Plaid (XL), IHSW-02 heavy weight sweat in black (XL), and SDA loopwheel sweat in grey (XL). Prices include shipping in the US, but I can also ship internationally (message me and I'll figure out how much extra shipping is to your country). I'm based in SF, so I can meet locally as well. Also potentially open to trades, but note that I now primarily wear IH workshirts in size L these days, so any trades would need to be smaller than these items Measurements Below:IHW-02 Grey Plaid (XL) - $300Shoulder: 52cmChest: 61cmWaist: 57cmOpening: 59cmLength: 72cmSleeve: 65cmIHSW-02 Black (XL) - $225Shoulder: 57cmChest: 63cmOpening: 56cmLength: 66cmSleeve: 58cmSDA Loopwheel Sweat (XL) - $175Shoulder: 60cmChest: 68cmOpening: 51cmLength: 68cmSleeve: 59 Pictures here: https://imgur.com/a/EofmUOy

    Unfortunately those are going to be too slim for me, even if I did lose more weight.

    yeah do you have the measurements for both the 33s and 34s? I've always wanted to try them as well, I bought them when I weighed a bit more and had them in storage to bring into rotation, then gained weight and had to get bigger jeans, then lost all that weight and more, so now they're too big...

    Awesome, good to know, thanks

    The issue wasn't the tab deteriorating (as that wouldn't really be a problem), it was the denim under it potentially having a hole because it's been stitched so many times so close together

    Separate question, for anyone who has unpicked the bartack holding down the red tab, has that area worn down faster / prematurely developed a hole? I took my jeans to get tapered and the guy there warned me against removing the bartack because of the potential to develop a hole faster

    Got my 1000ZXX in the mail today, does anyone have experience with the shrinking and stretching of the 7.5x7.5 DSB denim? The guidance on the Warehouse site is: 6cm of shrink in the waist 2cm of shrink in the thigh 2cm of shrink in the front rise 4cm of shrink in the rear rise 6-7cm of shrink in the length 1-2cm of shrink in the hem Curious if people's experiences have lined up with that, and what the subsequent stretch has been
