    Had to get over to our island - the small ferry is much faster... the garden is in a bad need of a trim. the part time adopted local cat was happy to see me.

    The cat approves... took the plane to Edinburgh today... Arrived and hopped on the train to Glasgow... the denim is still very furry/hairy.

    They have updated the preorder - seems like most EMS destination charges are included - UK is, preordered mine, too.

    @mondo - agree, a friend of mine sources old, vintage Russian tubes and does all the milling himself as a hobby.

    After a regular washing with moderate spin, air drying on a stretcher and a couple of days wear my W32 have stretched to: waist 88cm - a bit over 34.5” front rise 34cm - almost 13.4” back rise 46-46.5cm - a bit over 18” thigh 32cm - almost 12.6” hem 22cm - a bit over 8.6” thighs are measured directly under the crotch across the entire leg, not to the side seam. In pattern construction for pants the crotch usually gets lowered for comfort and the side seams are moved to the front by 1-2cm to make pants look slimmer. yes, I should have gone with a W33 for a more comfortable, but still trim fit - so far W32 looks like it could work out just as fine with a little more effort. my regular TCB size has been W32 so far, but the actual waist measures 34-35”.

    ^ no breathing! ^^ & ^^^ She’s short, but feisty and talks a lot! most likely a Bengal Mix - she’s a rescue, so we don’t know for sure...

    BS United Oni Denim Pics

    @mpukas - yes, those look interesting with those 2 different tones of indigo and they look reasonably straight cut. Nice price point, too. the 2 tones remind me of Eternal 877, while the fuzzy yarns are similar to some Sugar Cane’s... DC4 in BC Berlin seems to have them - maybe I’ll take a look in person.
