  1. Thought I'd put up some post-soak fit pics of the 1108EX - color isn't accurate. Went TTS (31) - I could have sized down as the waist is what I would normally want after quite a few wears, but, and as others have mentioned, the thighs are the issue and I'd rather have to wear a belt than struggle with the legs, which I think is a pretty uncomfortable thing to have to deal with. The denim is pretty amazing on these. Super crunchy and a fairly rough hand after soak. Also quite hairy, but short fibers that lay down on the denim and really aren't that noticeable. Denim also has quite a sheen in natural light. Pre-soak had a strong grey cast to the denim, but the soak brought out a very nice rich blue hue. Like @beautiful_FrEaK mentioned the patch had a flat, plasticky quality pre-soak, but post softened up and brought out a nice subtle grain. Anyway... Looking forward to wearing these.
  2. Here are some images of the 1108EX (pre-soak) and my pair of the 1108PH after ~2 years. Amazing how blue the 1108PH are.
  3. I could be wrong, but I feel like the stigma around LHT is that the fades are (supposedly) more subtle and not as contrasty / sharp as RHT... Going back to 2008 and concern around LHT fading properties would make sense as I think high contrast, super sharp fades were de rigueur.
  4. If diamonds happen, I'm out... I think they're nice looking, just not my style. I know I could easily remove them, but personally every aspect / detail counts. I'll keep an eye out and decide when I see the final specs.
  5. You assume correctly... I'm down for the 3009.
  6. I'm in. So impressed with my FCxSignet 1108 that I don't need to see details beyond FHxRJBxSignet in a 3009 cut to know the collab is going to be outstanding and worth the wait.
  7. More expensive than buying a new pair? Looking at your fit pics, I think you'll be saving money by sending them back and actually enjoy wearing them when you get the right size.
  8. Those look like the Ronnie Fieg x Doc Martens 'Bowery' boot. Link
  9. I'm in. Had a tough time deciding what to go with, but having 2 pairs of Busters already (one of, if not my favorite cut) and not sure about the 25oz as the summer can get hot here, I went with a pair of Samurai 710xx. Sams are arriving tomorrow and will be kept untouched until March - or a few days before for initial soaks. Looking forward to this.
