    Interest check: Denimbridge contest

    I’m also interested in getting my pair hemmed by the man himself.

    I already talked myself out of them, I’ve got some more interesting stuff headed my way.

    Pretty reasonable price considering they're made by Kuniyoshi-san! I'm in.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    What kind of sneakers are you guys wearing? Might pick up some new 70s for the summer, just wondering if there's anything new or interesting out there that I might've missed.

    Just an FYI, measuring the rise this way does makes the back rise seem very low. I just measured my Flat Head 3009’s that I just purchased and they came out to a 13 in. back rise measured Shingo-san’s way compared to 15 in. measured BiG style. That might get you back on the bandwagon @julian-wolf.

    Thanks @Bobbo, now just need to see what the damage is going to be on my wallet.

    Hmm, so I'm leaning towards a 38 given the smaller waist/ lower back rise. Assuming they're sized similarly to Ooe in going up two in the waist? Like Volvo said, a little more tapered than I'm used to but I want to make these work.

    Kind of tempted by the Unionmade sale to pick up a pair of 1944s, then again not sure they're worth it even at a discounted price.

    Not going to lie, I’m kinda into this Freenote bleached western. Not a brand that’s really done it for me before to be honest.

    Yeah I figured as much, I’ve heard how much the Pioneer denim shrinks over the course of the first few washes. If I start wearing them I’ll probably do another wash after a month or so of wear.

    @1fookntitefd here's the measurements for my 3009's after a warm wash on normal, so lots of agitation. BiG style measurements. Waist: 36 in. Front rise: 11 in. Back rise: 15 in. Upper thigh: 13.5 in. Knee: 9.5 in. Leg opening 9 in. Inseam: 33 in. I'll try to take some fit pictures up tomorrow, these are lower rise than I am used to after wearing Roy and Ooe for awhile, but they don't feel restrictive. The only other pair of Flat Head jeans I've tried before were the 2111 20 oz. denim and these are a much better cut for me.

    Thanks, I might be in touch.

    Kind of tempted by your 48 even though we’re ramping up for summer here. How does it measure up? I’m a 46 in the 50’s jacket, plus I had my version shortened.

    Thanks! I’ll try to get a fit picture today, wearing it for the first time. Like I said before, can’t really button the bottom (too much beer and not enough cardio lately...) but looks great open over a tee.
