    I'm seeing fades after about two months of evening/weekend wear. Nothing dramatic but faster than I expected

    Gave my 50s another hot machine wash and dry after about a month of wear. Subtle fading so far but the texture is starting to come alive.

    @Josh'N'Roll Just how snug are they right now? Once they shrink, they will stretch back to and possibly beyond the raw measurement. But if they are so snug right now that losing another inch or so would be unbearable, and you didn't feel like trying to exchange/sell them, you could think about wearing them for a little bit to stretch the waist before you shrink them. Consider how they fit you now, and how you want them to fit, and soak/wash accordingly -- a hot wash/machine dry will get max shrinkage, so you may want to start with a soak and hang dry, and see how they are from there. Good luck

    I am a comfortable 33 in most jeans and went with a 33 in these. I gave them two hot initial soaks and have not noticed any major shrink in subsequent machine washes. If anything they are a bit loose in the waist, so i would not recommend sizing up. Some people even suggest sizing down one. If you are between a 33 and a 34 I would pick the 33 in 710. You can always measure the jeans you mentioned and pick the samurai size that is more likely to shrink to those measurements.
  5. @JDelage ah I was going to recommend the Filson waxed cotton jacket I'm currently wearing in the miserable November Rain until I got to your snap-on hood comment. Does that really kill it for you? It would otherwise be perfect for what you are looking for. I live in Boston and this jacket is essential for the cooler/wetter weather that bookends the dead of winter. Can't find the exact model but it is basically this: https://www.filson.com/men/coats-jackets/cover-cloth-mile-marker-coat-11010409.html It looks like Filson offers a similar one with an attached hood, though it looks a little heavier: https://www.filson.com/men/coats-jackets/all-season-rain-coat-10695.html

  8. @Niro I have never experienced that, ever, and share your concern about sending information like that over email. Honestly I can't imagine how a company that is supposed to prevent fraud would encourage sharing that type of information over email. It seems like a proactive fraud prevention service but I wouldn't feel comfortable using it. I'm sure you have googled Nofraud.com, but this page seems to explain the process that was asked of you and may be helpful for anyone else who experiences this. https://www.nofraud.com/ecommerce-fraud-detection

    @MasonAlexander Those are amazing. It was your pair that made me get mine a while back and your final result does not disappoint.
  10. @TrueLoomTextiles thanks for the information! I'm sure you guys have your hands full getting everything off the ground. Best of luck
  11. Does anyone remember a thread over the summer started by "True Loom Textiles" ? They posted about getting 8 shuttle looms to prepare for production. No real updates since the summer.
  12. The rise is a little higher on the sage, so take that into account. Might not make a huge difference. Also, if you are comparing the UB site measurements to your current pair, keep in mind that the waist in your pair has probably stretched over time, so use that measurement to compare to whatever info you get from Sage. Make sure you know how they are measuring. If your current well-fitting jeans measure 33" at the waist, you should get the 32 (34") sage. If it shrinks to 32, it will stretch to whatever your current waist measurement is. I am not sure you would want to try the 30 and hope for all that additional stretch.

    @sk8eddie I don't think you need to worry. I didn't notice a dramatic difference after the second wash.

    @tigerstrom to echo what volvo said, you shouldn't be concerned. i am tall and after two initial machine washes/dries, they are PLENTY long
  15. Samurai Jeans

    Those look great. Samurai jeans can fade a number of ways but the texture and color from washing like this is my favorite -- subtle but striking.
