    New Contest Suggestions

    okay, i know i was pushing my luck with that suggestion. I'm currently wearing FC 1101s and have a pair of sugarcane MIJ 1966s incoming but I would be ok with the contest as long as the pattern used for the jeans isnt too 'different'. I'm mostly a regular jeans type of guy so the square pockets on the tender would be a show stopper for me. I'd be open to almost any fabric as long as the design isnt too radical and can be worn to the offce

    New Contest Suggestions

    would a sugarcane rainbow denim contest be too far off? I joined the denim jean hobby 2010 and have since only tried the regular lines from the big brands. I've had samurai, sda, warehouse, roy, eternal, etc.. but I keep going back to sugarcane. Its probably going to be next to impossible since i have not seen much rainbow denim posts in the past years, but I hope it is possible.

    Hey guys have any of you tried the current 1966 jeans? Any tips on the shrinkage and sizing?

    Full Count Denim Thread

    Does anyone here use the full count 6210/6211 wild leather belt? I have one in natural color and have worn it primarily for around 5 years now. The plating on the buckle on the top half is gone and what seems like brass or rust under is showing. Does anyone know what material they use for buckles?

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    My pair of memorial jeans turned up to be too loose everywhere except for the waist when i first got it. It got a 1hr warm soak which made it shrink a bit. After every month of wear it got a hand wash which didnt seem to shrink it further significantly. At the 3rd or 4th month is was raining a bit so I had to use a machine wash and a drier. This gave it quite a big shrinkage, around 1+ inch in the hem. Subsequent trips to the drier hasnt made it shrink further. My jeans, now at 8 months, is still smooth.

    Full Count Denim Thread

    How does the standard, non-xx denim stand up to frequent washes? I've been washing all my jeans every month but now im wearing sized up full counts and denimes so these get a little too loose after a week. Im planning to wash every 2 weeks now.

    Denime

    I ended up going 2 sizes up on the regular type 66 denim. I hope i did good, i will soak these and use the drier.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    I saw what seemed like a new version of sugarcane 1966s yesterday at hinoya. Any details on these? These didnt have the made in usa patch of the old 1966s Edit-- i passed by again and these were 1966 and not 1955s. The salesperson told me they were made in japan and a new fabric a little lighter than the 47s

    Denime

    I will be in tokyo for the week and visited americaya earlier to see the 30th anniversary models. They had 3-- a 66 cut, 50s cut (836 i think) and a low rise slim cut 70s model. All i tried were 1 wash and were quite tight. I usually wear 33 or 34 for most brands (sugarcane, warehouse, fullcount) but i'm quite weary on getting the sizing wrong. I have a size 34 evisu type 1 which fits like a 32. Do i need to size up to a 35 or 36 for the new 30th anniv. Denimes? How about the older fabrics? I will try to visit the denime store in saitama this week to see if they have the raw models.
