    Sugar Cane Denim

    hey guys - question about the SC 1953 type II 16.25 green selvedge jacket. i tried it on at american classics in london, in the one-wash version. the 38 fit well, but the guy in the store said to buy the 40 to allow it to shrink. i explained that i plan on washign 30 or 40 degrees in teh machine..and he said he still recommends getting hte 40 and that it will shrink. i'm confused as i thought one-wash means no more shinkage - especially at 30 or 40 degrees - can anyone clarify? thx

    hey guys. so i tried on WH 800 in 31 and 900 in 32 one wash today - both fit decent, and were comfortable in the thighs. i wanted to try SC 1947, and SC type II and type iii - but looking at measurements - looks like thighs are going to be tighter in a simlar waist size - that seem accurate? for reference - i also have FC 1108 in 31 waist (thigh online says 11.61) and 3sixteen ST220Z 32 waist (thigh 11.4 thight online) - both these jeans are fine in the thigh, but i dont think i would wear much tigther. i can't find any london stocklist of one-wash - so anyone know if WH 800/900 in general fit a bit looser in thighs than SC 1947 type II or III?

    thanks the help fellas. if i tried on a cut of the warehouse that are with red tabs, would the jeans warehouse JP now selling be the same cut - or has the cuts recently changed? wanted to get 800s shipped to the UK or USA

    can anyone recommend a JP proxy to UKthat will mark as gift. i dont mind paying extra for SC, but the markup is pretty high in the UK compared to JP pricing. wanted to get a type 2 jacket and some jeans. did a search in supertalk but they seem to be old/dated threads

    What if I am receiving repairs but items amount to higher amount eg £500 - assuming repairs VAT and customs exempt?

    would it be accurate to say SC 2009 closer to a 66' (as is FC 1008) and warehouse 800 (which is close to 1947) similar to SC 1947 (original version)?

    thanks guys. yah the SC 2009 may be lighter, i'll have to try on and see how thighs are - 12oz sounds good but if tight then i think i may be mnore comofrtable in summer in a standard 47

    quick question on FC 1108 - i have a pair in One wash - did a cold soak and wash in the bathtub, and seems the waist tighteed up given they are one wash - will they still shrink more if i do 30 degrees cold wash or a warmer machine wash? i'm not previous about how i wash them - but i dont want inseam to shorten

    got it on the 660s - thx. will the 800 14.5 oz be OK for warmer climates (e.g. 25- 30 degrees) or i'll need a different pair for that? i think sugar cane do lighter version in similar cut to 800

    i hear you on UK customs - the charges are prohibitive. what i find interesting - Brits critisize the US for import duties and protectionishm - but our USA friends can order $800 USD per order - with no limit over the yearl. if you lived in america you could literally order from warehouse $800/week in clothing if you wish and pay 0 on duty. the other killer - i've been through the process with customs when returning money - they are very reluctant to provide a refund on your fees even when you can prove you shipped the items back. out of principle i stuck with it - but there were 5+ letters back and forth, had to show receipts - was a real mess and i just by from SOAS now as no japan trips planned.

    thx to the advice here- i got the FC 1108 - been enjoying them although a bit tight in thighs (think will loosen up more now that i'm wearing to office). i like the 800 and 900, but leaning towards 800 as want them to be comfortable. couple questions: 1) is 800 C/L still available - what is model number that follows 800? may be nice to have C/L heading into summer 2) is 660 still available? seems its similar to 800 but slightly lower rise?
