    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.
  9. I have both the standard hawaii and okinawa jeans and wore them in alternate weeks for around 8 or so months each. The hawaii fabric is more unique in shade and streakiness, but both fabrics are quite different from the usual denim i see here. The fits are quite different too. I undersized a bit (underestimated my beer gut) and the hawaiis feel a lot looser in the top block then seem to taper a small bit down to the hem. The okinawas feel tighter int he waist and the top block (seems tighter than the waist of the 1947 model) but seems to have a straight leg down to the hem. I like the hawaiis better due to the color and unique fabric but the okinawas are fine as well.

    That was quick! Thanks JohnM! Most of my jeans are on the looser end of the spectrum: SC47, hawaiis and okinawas and most recently the roy memorial jeans. I recently tried a slimmer cut in the wh lot 800, and really like the slimmer leg and the higher that usual rise. I've had trouble before with the lower rise and tight hips of my sd101. I think i will get the 1101 if the hips are a little bigger than the wh 800 but maintains the higher rise.

    Hi guys, im looking to get a pair of fullcounts with the arcs and tab. I'm just reading conflicting info so i'd like to get some of your inputs. Also, i need to purchase in the next 48 hrs (friend is leaving tokyo soon). Cut- the 0105 is like the warehouse 1000 or SC 1947 right? FC Describes these as loose and the 1101 as regular fit, but the measurements say otherwise. Would the 1101 be closer to a WH lot 800? Denim- it seems the 0105 and 1101 are available in the 13.7oz and 15.5oz xx denim. Are these post soak weights? If these are pre soak the xx would end up quite heavy. Which can provide a more classic fade? Shrinkage and stretching- I've read that FC denim stretch quite a bit so i need to size down 1. I usually wear 33 or 34 in most brands. Is the stretching really big? Thanks! ** sorry, i just realized i posted this in the Warehouse thread
