  1. Full Count Denim Thread

    The look - dark shorts over faded tight jeans.
  2. Full Count Denim Thread

    I've now got size 34 and neither the thigh nor the hem is tight so there is definitely no 'vacuum-packed' effect. I expect they will stretch as per usual with Fullcount and will end up loose. I rather like the idea of wearing the shorts over a pair of tight jeans to give a rugby player effect. Has anyone tried that?

    Well that was 1st time on and they've stretched a bit since them. They're not as tight as they look, though I can feel the hem (same width as on size 30) when seated. Unlike size 30 there is enough width for them to be turned up to display some selvage. It will be some time before they fade nicely ... Unless @Max Power discloses his secrets.

    Well, nobody seemed to like the pics of my FC1904 shorts in size 30 last year, but in fact they have worked and worn well in the flesh and I have had no adverse comments. However, with the arrival of this year's batch, I have gone a size up to 32.

    I've started wearing my 05/98 555 Valencia Street 1937 201XXs again! I got these and 4 others like them in 2012. As yet unwashed, I did soak the legs recently to reduce their 38 length.

    @Paul T Thanks. It sounds as if we will never find out the secret of the button codes, sadly. I seem to remember Peter at American Classics, Endell St talking about you or the book, back in the day! I bought so much LVC there that I would qualify for discount and Cinch let me rummage in their storeroom for Valencia St LVC once! I've still got it all, much still deadstock, too!

    I've just got myself a pair of non-repro deadstock BNWT (stapled) 501 little es 66 cut which the care label says were manufactured in May 1975. The button code is 16. Does anybody know which factory this is? Unusually for this era there is selvedge in the inside of the coin pocket. The denim is similar to my 5/98 Valencia Street LVC 201's but the colour is duller. Here they now are between 2 pairs of Valencia Street 201s, 10/97 and 5/98.

    I normally wear my size 30 1101 XXs to work which are less faded and smarter than my size 33 1108 XXs. On the way to work I thought they had loosened up a bit: then I realized that I was wearing my 1108XXs lol.

    I think I will have to resist getting these as I won't get enough opportunity to wear them. The cut looks wider than the normal 1101 cut and I would size down quite a lot to get a snug fit. I prefer the normal FC arcs too and have bought 10 pairs of FC and 4 FC jackets in the past 12 months. Still breaking in 2 x 1101 XXs, 1108s, and 21 oz. Also loving some faded IH 634 UHRs and have a couple more pairs of them and IH 25oz to resume wearing. Spoilt for choice

    Anybody seen these? They look fantastic. Perhaps you should get a pair, Max, ASAP and see what they look like after a bit a nice Evo? http://www.fullcount-online.com/category/C004/1101XXEX.html
  12. Full Count Denim Thread

    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!
