  1. Warehouse

    Thank you! The fabric is really starting to come alive, and kind of get that marbled look. And they are tapered. The slimmer more tapered models (like the 800s etc) were too slim for me and the 1001s were perfect pretty much everywhere except the legs so just ended up getting them tapered and they fit great!

    My 1001's! My plan was to start washing these more but ended up wearing them sporadically due to work and ended up going way to long before a wash. But washed last weekend while visiting the parents. Loving how they are turning out! And I have no idea how long they're worn anymore. Maybe 12ish months? And like 8 washes, maybe?
  3. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    The 60-65 year round is only for a very small portion of the bay I don't think I could justify a jacket purchase in the south bay (or even east east bay) during the summer

    That was my same thought when I tried them on. I didn't think they'd taper as much as they did, it's pretty extreme but not horrible. Kind of wanted a pretty tapered pair but am unsure (hence why I didn't end up buying them right then and there =( ). But I'll let you know if I do! I do know though that the thigh was smaller than the measurement online so that was a good thing!

    Oh wow that's pretty cool, and interesting. I would definitely need the 38 then. The other sales associate mentioned he had to size up two so I that would make sense (that I had to size up as well). Awesome, thanks for the reply Kiya! And for some reason can't +rep...

    I was in the SESF store trying on the 019 Black PBJs and the guy I was talking to mentioned that the new one wash process for these was less intense than previous models but didn't elaborate much more on that. I have an older pair of 009s that I bought one wash but didn't shrink any more after I bought them. I am kind of split between the sizes depending on the shrink so was just curious about some more info about the new wash/rinse process.
  7. Boncoura

    I love the short length on my Boncoura's haha. Only pair I never had to hem And for some reason it wont let me +rep but Broark they're looking good! And istwei, I like the fit! I don't wear mine super often due to my job nowadays but still love them. And probably the pair i've gone the longest without washing. I just love the starchyness to them!

    Don't have too many pics of my 1001's so here is one from the weekend! Love these so much
  9. Samurai Jeans

    I'm thinking of taking the plunge on the S511NBK. I got some measurements from denimio and the fit seems okay, although I could use some higher rise. They didn't really know much about the fabric. Is this the same 17oz that theyve used in the past? I know the 15oz has a lot of stretch. Anyone know what to expect out of the 17oz?
  10. Sugar Cane Denim

    Mine is a size 36, and my thigh is 13" so maybe I can easily get a bit more... hopefully.
  11. Sugar Cane Denim

    Very true, might as well wear them for a bit and see! But good to hear about some stretch. I think if i can get a little, they'd be perfect. Probably just need to wear for like a week or so.
  12. Samurai Jeans

    oh damn... I don't mind too much about non fading black jeans, but I guess I still want them to fade a little haha. Damn yeah, still on the hunt for a nice fitting pair of black denim Edit: Yeah went back and it does mention being harder to fade than old BKB. Damn
  13. Samurai Jeans

    Just saw the S511NBK on the samurai instagram page, and just saw them for pre order on 2nd. Really tempted since it my sugar canes might not work out. Any comments on the 17oz denim? I assume same one from the 710bk.
  14. Sugar Cane Denim

    Decided to say screw it and bought the black Sugar canes off of Rakuten. Well... the thighs are pretty tight. They're not super uncomfortable but are tight and do look a bit tight. What kind of stretch do you think I'd get? already got them hemmed to 30" so probably going to have to take a big hit on them =(
  15. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    I pretty much always wear sneakers. I just recently bought some Doek baskets. But sadly, I am probably going to return them unless anyone in interested? Comparing both Shoes like pottery and Doek baskets to converse (regular, not 70s), the converse are the best for me. They fit better and imo look better. Which I guess is a good thing since they're cheaper too haha
