    wow - everything is just so much cheaper in the US. an $800 threshhold is just amazing. serioulsy taxed to death in the UK whenever i've tried to order anything from Japan or US the charges have been so heavy that i've swore every time woudl be the last.

    i agree on the shorter fit - i'm only 5'7 so works better for me too. i'm after a type II as well - and want to try warehouse/FC version as like the subtlety from those 3 brands my dad has an old beaten levi's thats got to be 30+ years old..i'll see if i can dig it out next time i'm home

    And while I’m here... heres my 2002xx I’ve had for two years. Jacket season is extremely short in New Orleans, so this spends more time in the closet than not. The banner denim is perfect for a type II and in my humble opinion this is one of the best denim jackets on the market. beautiful jacket indeed. what makes it better than than FC or TCB versions for example - fit? construction? denim?

    30% sounds leniant compared to the UK. We pay Duty + VAT and they even charges extra taxes on the shipping cost. i'll never order from abroad again. in America - can you order from japan to america without any duty? you guys are so lucky. we are really taxed to death in the UK - for example $.76/litre on fuel for example

    the 3 sixteens i have now are 11.4 thights (fine when standing but annoy me when at work sitting down). i think 11.9 would be all good. having a few days from the forum does seem over the top to analyse 11.4 vs 11.9 - but in my mind it makes a difference. thanks for the detailed info.

    interesting approach. i hear you about the jeans stretching out. i'm currently workign on a pair of 3 sixteens i'm finding tighgt but they are loosening up. for me (i'm also at an advanced age) - i am thinking - denim should feel reasonably comfortable everywhere day 1 (except for the waist whcih stretches out from pressure). if thighs are too tight and the jeans are on my mind everytime i sit down at a desk - then i probably shoudl buy a different model. sure the thighs will stretch - but then by the time the jeans start to look good the crotch blows out. but you know theres no right or wrong. i'm only 5'7/160 pounds - if i lose weight to fit in jeans i'll start to feel slight. so i guess jeans are just so personal - and every one of us has different criteria when selecting a pair. and every pair is unique over time. so thats pretty cool and i guess why we're all on here lookign at pictutres of fades.
