  1. RRL Rodeo Ralph Lauren

    It's mostly about how RRL is made in China, etc. vs. USA/Japan/Europe for other SOP brands. SOP doesn't appear to be exactly straightforward about where RRL comes from. I love RRL stuff and think it's great quality, so it's not a big deal for me, but it might be to others.
  2. The Flat Head

    Wow, those are looking awesome. Can't wait to see how they look with some more wear.
  3. Full Count Denim Thread

    Great fit, those look perfect.
  4. The Flat Head

    It looks pretty loose around the waist, if that's the case you could certainly size down. But it it's already snug in the top, you probably shouldn't.
  5. The Flat Head

    You can see pics of my FH sneakers a few pages back, owning them for 5.5+ years they've held up great.
  6. The Flat Head

    Nah, I never noticed mine to stretch at all, but my foot's not very wide, so it doesn't put much pressure on the shoe. I wear a 11 in 70s Chucks, so you'd probably go down one full size. But I dunno, I feel like my feet are kinda weird.
  7. The Flat Head

    I have the FH sneakers in the largest size (10) and it fits about the same as my true size in Converse/Vans (11.5.) I think most people will want to go down one full US size from those shoes.
  8. RIVET & HIDE, London. Info etc...

    What I noticed is that most Japanese guys wearing those kinds of wallets are wearing looser-fitting straight cuts of jeans. So you're not really sitting on the wallet, it moves off to the side when you sit down. It can be uncomfortable with slim fits where the jeans fit snugly across the hips and butt.
  9. Full Count Denim Thread

    Yep, from Denimio. They had the unwashed version before, but apparently it's sold out (might've got it otherwise.)
  10. Full Count Denim Thread

    Got my 1108s yesterday, and wore them all day today. I really like the fit, it's slim but not tight anywhere, and the rise sits at the top of my hips, where I prefer. As long as my legs don't get huge from working out (which seems unlikely), these ought to be my go-to slim fit for a long time to come. I haven't owned a pair of jeans with such a vintage-style denim, but I really like this fabric. It's got a rougher, more textured feel than I expected it would, and I can see it becoming both very comfy and nicely faded with some wear. The details are all really nice, and the construction is top notch. These are a winner. Judging from how shrunken/fried the leather patch is, this pair was clearly one-washed with a dryer in the mix, so I don't think there will be any more shrinkage.
  11. The Flat Head

    Great progress on those Smallrod, the frequent washing looks like it's really brought out the color of the jeans.
  12. Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    hooker is right, I've used Arm And Hammer natural deodorant for years now - absolutely no stains on my shirts.
  13. Tanuki Japan

    Terrific review Mike. I've never really paid much attention to Tanuki and I've got more than enough jeans to keep my legs happy for the next few years, but I'd definitely consider them for a future purchase if one of the fits looked right for me. Much like with Oni, the pseudo-mysterious branding rubs me the wrong way, but it's clearly a nice product.
  14. Full Count Denim Thread

    Those jeans look stunning. Personally, I would keep wearing them until they exploded or no longer fit.
  15. Full Count Denim Thread

    Wow, glad I went ahead and ordered a pair of the "old" ones. They should be getting delivered today. Interesting to hear there's continued shrinkage b_F, I guess I'll be throwing my pair in for a hot wash after I try them on. Either way, I expect the 31 will be a good fit for me. Your new ones look good. Did you find the inseam to shrink any more on your previous pair? 34" should be about right for me. If it shrank a little more, I could always pull it out a bit after washing, I find it's pretty easy to get half an inch back that way.
