    I hear you @heyson. For me, the contrast that you have going looks just right. All the whiskers are there as shade gradients rather than hard shade difference. With continued wear and wash, those look on track for a beautifully balanced fade. But this shit is all completely subjective.

    Thanks guys. I'm not particular about paper patches and whatnot, but now that you've mentioned it, the denim isn't really anything like a '60s repro fabric. That is a deterrent. I'll look into the SC 66.

    Is it 3x1 or 2x1? Sometimes those lightweight deck pants in denim are 2x1 twill which I find a stubborn fade (thinking TCB Seaman's Trouser here).

    What are people's thoughts on the McCoy's 004 as a 66ish cut? I am not getting on with the Resolute 710 for the same reason as @Newman and I'm strongly considering selling them off and going for the 004. I enjoy having a slim tapered option in the wardrobe hemmed short to just meet the top of a shoe and get a flood gap with just a small, single cuff.

    What's the love and what's the hate @heyson?

    Evisu is still loved!

    Second this. I always prefer a red caste. By a significant margin, really.
  7. Thanks, @srudy! This fabric wears and fades so much differently than the S40s. It softened a ton after my first wash and the overall shade faded to about where my S40s jacket is after five washes. I'm hoping that the warm, soft, red caste indigo powder blue of my favorite vintage Levi's is in our future.
  8. A few pics ahead of the first wash and tumble today. Lost another .5" in length as expected from factory OW. Waist and everything else came out just about the same as original spec.

    The only problem I see with @beautiful_FrEaK's assessment is the back belt loop. I have the 1001 from 2013 and it does not have the XX designation. It shares the red bartack stitch for the "tab" as well. It does not have the offset back belt loop though.

    @P_K good to see some Jean Shop still floating around. @Double 0 Soul's question in the general thread is answered with Jean Shop for me. I was a customer first in 2007 and then an employee from 2008-2011. That's where it all began for me. I saw a post from them a week ago indicating Eric plans to do some small releases again. Interesting news.

    Hey @AlientoyWorkmachine, we actually don't have the Clint here at all and unfortunately only carry Indigofera down to a size 30 at the moment. I also love the Ship John Holcomb jean, but it too is only available down to 30. Let me know if you want any measurements from the 30 we have here in the Holcomb.
  14. @Cold Summer, I seriously considered doing both up, but then the purist in me wanted one traditional arc at least. Haha. @jsn it's on you to rep the double up arcs!
