    Is my memory terrible or does the 20th Anniversary 16oz feel completely different from the Denimio 16oz? Aren't they both supposed to be the same Geisha fabric?
  2. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I prefer raw when possible. However if a OW pair that I want goes on sale, the fact that it's OW doesn't factor into my decision making process.

    Can anyone comment on how slim the S511xx cut actually is compared to PBJ and SDA slim tapered? Okayama Denim called it a slim tapered but based on the measurements it appears to be more of a slim straight. I've decided to get the S511SJC-AI and am wondering if I'll need to get them tapered to get then close to the PBJ and SDA slim tapered cuts I'm used to. I have a couple pairs in the 710 cut that I got to work by sizing down and getting tapered by Railcar. Does anyone have experience with Samurai's home grown cotton? Saw a lot of discussion but doesn't look like anyone has actually gotten a pair yet.
  4. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    I would say so comparing it to the regular loopwheel SDA t shirt. The Suvin Gold is very smooth and has a very soft hand compared to the slubbiness of the fabric they use for their loopwheeled border t shirt. Both are closer to sweatshirt thickness than t shirt in my opinion. They are both much better quality than the kamikaze attack loopwheeled t I had. Also bit thicker than the Merz henley I just got.

    SDA Suvin Gold Cardigan, Suvin Gold Henley, X's-37 Cardigan is perfect for spring and feels almost like cashmere.

    What do you need to know regarding the S710BK17oz-II? I just soaked my pair in size 29.
  7. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Adidas x End x Bodega Havens. Been wearing New Balance for the past few years but saw these on sale and the Japanese denim inspired colorway and detailing really sold these to me.

    Sounds like the 16oz ones use the Geisha denim, a nice option for anyone who missed the Denimio collabs.
  9. Pure Blue Japan

    PBJ x OD 20th anniversary details released. The denim sounds fun, the superslub of the 18oz and the sharp contrast from double indigo.

    But at the same time Samurai is more available and affordable than ever with Denimio and Okayama Denim carrying the full line.

    I also just got these and ran into the same problem. Button and unbutton them a few times without wearing them and it should stretch the buttonhole out enough.

    AI-003 is slim tapered like xx-011/12/13, believe you're thinking of the AI-001 for regular straight or AI-002 for slim straight.

    How are you guys sizing your Denimio x Samurai collabs? I'm a size 30 in PBJ xx-012 and also decided to go with a 30 in Samurai after comparing the BiG measurements for both and also reaching out to Denimio. However I'm a little worried about the BiG measurements and can't seem to find any info about how much shrinkage to expect from the Geisha fabric.

    My size 29 16 oz Kurabo Reed Classic Dry are actually pretty comparably to my 12.5 oz Cone Mills Henley Dry Stretch. I was afraid that they would be too loose based on Blueowl measurements but were glad to see the pair I had were only vanity sized by 2 inches. I'll get my gf to help take some fit pics when she has time.

    More time for you to work on your BOM003s :-P
