    Full Count Denim Thread

    Read a little back about the whole back pocket fiasco. It seemed at the time, they said there would be two version (in Japan), but sadly all I am seeing on rakuten are the no arcs. Found a pair of 1101XXs with arcs on yahoo auctions (https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/o315183176). Not a deal or anything but tempted. Had a pair of regular 1101s from a while ago that I wore for a few months and stopped. Kind of tempted to grab another pair as I am in need of a new pair!

    I didn't actually notice but that's a good point. The waist looks way smaller than I remember. 92cm on an unwashed size 36

    So I think I read a little bit ago in this thread that they changed some of the warehouse fits? Did the 1001 change at all form say 2016? I ask because I loved my 1001s so much I am thinking of grabbing another pair, but looking at the newer version while the measurements look roughly the same, the patch now says 1001XX instead of 1001 like my old ones. Was just curious if they're still pretty much the same jean? EDIT: It also looks like the 800 now says 800XX too, so maybe just a change in the naming scheme on the patch? Also here are the ones in question https://www.ware-house.co.jp/?pid=132358411

    Thanks for the kind words guys. And sadly no renters insurance it lesson learned. I live in an old complex so no cameras but yeah thinking about it now. But also thinking of moving somewhere else. Haven't really had any issues but I live next to a high traveled homeless area so who knows. They attempted to break into another but gave up. They broke in through the back entrance and I happen to be the first one they see. My city also isn't very fashionable so maybe they thought they could make a quick buck. Oh well. And I found out last night, they also took a big thing of change I had (that was given to me by my mom). Was so damn heavy I never really dealt with it so I'm kind of impressed they took it haha. But now an excuse to buy some jeans I guess haha.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Yeah going to browse a bit for a while to see if I see anything. And yeah the coo was mentioning like maybe they knew but even for some in the know, boncoura is super niche. They were the ones sitting on top of the stack and look the nicest so probably just grabbed thinking they could make a buck. And can't double quote on phone but @kicks79 yeah I don't know. Think it was just easy grab. Grabbed the laptops the jeans and shoved it into my duffle bag and ran. No issues with anyone but can't help but feel a bit weird.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    So some really shitty stuff happened today. I had my apartment broken into . Thankfully they left pretty much everything except they stole my laptop and all my jeans... Yes, all my jeans I happen to be wearing my shittiest pair today (black lsg), so I have those and the resolutes that were hidden under some clothes that I had just bought. All my other pairs (warehouse 1001, boncoura 66, Samurai 0500, fullcount 1011, PBJ 009 and even a pair of work Levi's) were taken. I'm thankful they didn't take my more expensive electronics but it hurts so much. Especially the warehouses and boncoura. There's worse, so I'll move on and grab new pairs but man, this shit sucks. But could be worse haha.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Thank you for the measurements! Those look pretty good! Rear rise is solid but front is a little low but my 0500s had the same so if I size up they should be perfect. While browising google, I actually found a menswear shop about 25 minutes away (Brogue) that stocks Resolutes. Kind of funny, wish I had know about them sooner... But looks like I get to go try on some 711s in person! Thanks again for those measurements!

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Awesome, thank you! Yeah I'm finding the 710s are just a little too slim (but perfect knee down) so was thinking of the 711 and just having them tapered. But then I saw the 711s have a lower rise so I am curious. If the rise was the same as the 710 I'd be good haha.

    Thanks for the info! But man that worries me now. The 36 is perfect except the waist is tiny. A 38 would be too big really everywhere else (except waist) but if ony really 3-4cm (even 5cm) is not enough in the waist. Damn... Might have to wait til september to see if there are any left and see what everyones measure out to. Damn, they look awesome. Is Shingo-san interested in making a 36 but with a waist from a 38 haha (joking).

    Thanks for answering! Do you happen to know the amount of stretch (at least in the waist), or what the raw waist measurement was?

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    They're a size 38, but send me a PM if you're serious! EDIT: Going to edit instead of double post, @Broark I saw you have a pair of 711s. I am a little worried about the lower rise compared to the 710 (although I am a size up from you), what is the rise at after a bit of stretch if you don't mind me asking?

    Damn, this looks awesome! I've noticed that my last few jeans are are pretty slim and release I want a slightly more relaxed pair like my 1001s so this is very tempting! I assume the measurements on the site are after shrink right? They look pretty good! I assume no issue though if we decide to get them tapered a bit (from someone else)?

    I got a 38x32 and currently measure 30" in length. But yeah, the only length they had in a 38 was the 32, but I knew that and figured I'd have to get them hemmed anyway so not too worried. A 30" is doable but would prefer 28-29"

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    That's good to hear! the thighs are a little tight as well but I wanted a slim cut and I could probably afford to lose a bit of weight anyways . And thank you! I almost didn't end up grabbing them but my brother convinced me to go to the store since we were close. Glad I did! Just need to get them hemmed so I can rock the hayashi-san look! Whether I can pull it off though is another story...

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Finally got myself a pair! Grabbed a pair of the 710s while in Tokyo last week. They're a little tight so not sure I should've bought them but oh well haha. The store guy said no stretch for one wash which seems weird so I know they'll stretch but might be pretty minimal
