  1. I am wearing them under my raw 1101XXs (also size 30) today, to soften them up. Denim over denim is also good for evo . More pics hopefully some time over the weekend. Personally, I like the cycling shorts look of them, and don't like them loose, falling down or flapping around my knees. The next size up from 30 is 32 and judging from my size 33 1101XXs (my first FCs), they would be too loose for my taste. I will see how they go down in Germany towards the end of June, in Spain in early July and in Sardinia in September!
  2. My one wash size 30 shorts have arrived and are quite a tight fit! The thighs are OK but the waistband is tight. I can do them up, though and I guess, given the propensity of the 13.7oz denim to stretch, I won't have my gut hanging over the waistband for too long - or at least, that is what I hope!
  3. My last pair of 1101XXs had a belt loop that was not attached at the bottom. I was able to match the thread and repair it. There was batch of 1937 raw LVC 501s in the early 2000s which would spring random holes. I had to exchange 1 pair (for 1955s as American Classics had run out of 1937s) and have another pair made into shorts by the Manchester denim Dr.
  4. Pleased for you @Max Power a situation we all dread has been averted! Any news about your problem @jewellben ? Has Mervyn sorted it out? By the way it is the rigid Full Count pics which I like in the Pronto material though the Type 3 jacket looks nice. I don't buy distressed or treated denim. I am only buying once washed shorts as I am sure they are not available in rigid.
  5. Just love this Pronto Full Count promotion: http://prontodenim.com/blog/new-arrival-fullcount-3/
  6. Have any of you guys got the 1904 shorts? They're one washed and based on the 1101 in the 13.7 oz, so I've sized down to 30 to allow for the stretch. I'm waiting for mine to arrive.
  7. My Type I and Type IIS are the XX denim.
  8. Standard 13.7 oz or XX 15.5 oz, Max? I've been breaking in raw Type I and Type IIs since November, no washes yet but evo appearing! Lovely big pockets on these!
  9. I have put some new pics on the IH forum page: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6321.195
  10. Mine are soft, comfortable, fit well, have faded nicely and look good. Once on, I am reluctant to take them off!
  11. Here they are on 30 December 2016. I think there may be other pics, but this is what came up in a search.
