  1. What is the typical one-washed process used by Jpz makers? Do they go above 40C / 104F?
  2. There are quite a few options. For example: MFSC Lot 44, LVC 1955, SDA SD-102CB (lower rise), SDA SP-079 Earth, IH 1955S, Samurai S3000VX, SC Okinawa, SC SC40304, FW 601XX 1947, Stevenson San Francisco 747, Bob Dong 55 cut (608H)

    We're all looking forward to seeing the pants too...

    Not bored one bit. That tactical jacket made me sing to myself "One of these things is not like the others..."
  5. This is interesting. Where are you? Are you sure your package shipped from Japan using EMS?
  6. I've had 3 EMS shipments sent in the last couple months, from JP to Europe. Shipment sent Apr 9 took 21 days, shipment sent Apr 14 took 28 days, and shipment sent Apr 24 will arrive after this week end so at least 31 days. This limited sample suggests that things are still getting worse rather than better. In other words, backlog is still accumulating in Tokyo airport rather than resorbing. FedEx, UPS, and (best of all) DHL is another story entirely. Japan's EMS is still doing better than the US' USPS by the way (in part because some US shipments to Europe transit by Japan, for some weird reason).

    I've seen here pics of people wearing suspenders. I've never seen a pic of someone with a pocket watch in their watch pocket...

    I've wondered about the belt loops + suspender buttons thing. Maybe it was a transition time when some people wanted a belt and others wanted suspenders?

    Those are very cool.

    OK. Mines are unwashed so I think they'll shrink this one time, but it sounds like I can safely hem them afterwards. Thank you.

    Does the 601XX denim gets fully shrunk after a good wash, or is it one of those fabrics (looking at you, black seed cone!) that shrinks over several washes? Wondering if I should get my pair hemmed right away or wait a few more cycles...

    @Duke Mantee - How do you find the Brakeman & Journeyman? How do they differ when you wear them?

    See, it has its uses.
  14. On the plus side, that gives you a chance to try an A1 for cheap. I happen to think that an A1 might not be the most convenient cut, but at that price you're not taking much risk.
