    lol i think i do this a lot now after I started working in food production a couple of years ago. My hands and jeans are almost always oily or full of flour so I wash my hand maybe 20x during work and wipe down my pants. Come to think of it when I was wearing the 47s I didn't have to do this so maybe thats what happened with the fades?

    Hmm I was also wondering about the same thing. My guess is the washing that I did with the 66 pair. On almost all of my jeans I usually wash at about 1 month give or take a few days. On the 66 I tried washing every 2 weeks so these were washed at least 12 times over 6 months. I am stumped on why my pair don't have any honeycombs but the front thigh and side seams are pretty faded. The thing that bothered me about the pair the most though was the color. It constantly reminded me of the cheap levis I used to wear but I like the fit quite a lot. I am currently wearing the Buzz ricksons and another pair so maybe in a years time I can get back to the canes.

    Here are some photos from my crappy phone camera SC41947 (around 8+ months of wear) SC42966 (around 6 months of wear) 1947, 1966 and the Buzz M43023 with only 2 months of wear

    I actually like the buzz 50s fit best which was surprising since i only bought it due to it being on sale. I feel the buzz 50s jeans had a nice balance of the features in the 47s and 66s. The waist and hip area have enough room for me and the leg has a small amount of taper. Its a great all around pair of jeans. I will try to take some photos soon but the fabric doesn't seem to be the same as the sc 47 (darker) or 66 (gray), its a lot more blue.

    I have pair of the 66s and i think you can get away with sizing down 1 but TTS is fine as well if want a more relaxed fit. I have the 1947s in 33 and the waist is definitely too tight on me. My 1966 is in 34 and the waist still has slack even if i wear these a bit lower on the hip than the 47s. My 1966 seems a full size bigger than the 50s buzz ricksons jeans im wearing now in the same size. The thighs on the 66s are also quite roomy. On the shrinkage, i bought mine once washed and i got maybe 1/2 to 3/4 in of shrinkage in the length and some nice roping after putting these on the drier.

    FOB Factory

    Hi guys, I've been looking at the older posts about FOB factory jeans and these look exceptional. I remember holding a pair while in tokyo and the denim looked really dark, like eternals. Would you have feedback on the current 5P denim? Are these fast faders? How is the shrinkage? I am looking at the F191 ww2 cut and the f151.

    @Double 0 Soul- Are these the 1946 contest pair? I remember these were going on when I bought my 1966 pair from Taichi-san. Sadly I was a lot thinner and in this phase I was trying to buy the smallest size I can get into. Now I can't even get the jeans halfway up my thighs lol. Looking back it's unfortunate I wasn't into looser cuts during that time and I wasn't able to join the Devi's contest.

    Yes I remember you mentioning this @Double 0 Soul. The place I got my pair from did the one washing and told me it was thrown in the drier already but it seems it wasn't too hot of a setting given the condition of the patch. I guess I just have to wait a month or two and use a drier when these get dirty. I am in asia where its constantly too warm so we don't do hot washes or driers so I will need to visit a laundromat. On the fit and sizing-- I could have gone sizing down 2 on these given the stretch of the denim but I'm happy with the looser waist of my pair 1 size down.

    The 001s are the 50s cut right? Comparing the measurements of the 003 and the 001s show that the 003s have a lower rise which may be why they don't sit high on the waist for you. Personally, I am happy with the lower rise (compared to my recent 50s jeans) but I am still getting used to the lack of taper in the thigh and leg area. It seems that hem cover a big part of my shoes when I look lol.

    I bought my Lot S003s one washed and hot soaked (I saw a lot starch in the water after) them but want them to shrink a bit more. Looking at my leather patch, its nowhere near the burnt and shriveled ones I see here. I should expect these to shrink more if I use a drier right? I've only worn these a week and the waist has stretched a lot. Even the hip area has stretched a noticeable amount so the hems is draping a bit lower than expected.

    Thanks for the photos! I asked you some weeks back about the Mccoys pair and the Cushmans made by CSF and sadly the latter's fit was not good for my body type when I tried them on. The Cushmans had a very tight top block but a higher rise. The Mccoys had a nicer rise and leg dimensions so I got a pair. Mine is a lot s003 unlike your pair which is a 003. I don't remember where I read this but I think the 003s have a heavier denim? My pair also has much more even stitching compared to your pair, much like edmonds. I will just give mine a final hot soak and wear these soon. I really hope that the thread on my pair doesn't break too soon

    I see, I have ones from the current season and the stitching is a lot different from your pair. The current ones are much cleaner. Even the folded edges of the pockets are quite even vs. your pair. I hope mine doesn't too many repairs too soon!

    I have both the 47s and the 66. The 47s are much bluer and the 66s fade to a more grey color. I experimented with the 66s on washing every 2 weeks so my pair doesn't have too much contrast (no fades behind the knee).The 66 denim is much more even and smooth. The waist is a bit oversized compared to the 47s which seem undersized. My 66s have gotten some nice creases in the coin pocket area and legs for some reason.

    @H...crimper When did you buy and how long have you been wearing those, if I may ask? I got a new pair and the back pocket stitching are nowhere near as wonky as yours.
