    Top man! If rather support them directly rather than Denimio (providing they pick it up) if I'm getting the linen shirt but Denimio is so damn easy when it comes to customs.

    Their whole business model is based on fu**ing customs ...

    sorry to be pedantic, but given the amount of speculation on design variance sending Volvo to a premature grave, I thought to clarify:

    ... desired inseam length via a hemming service has been done before, but I don't think desired hem size is possible: that would require the sacrilege of taking them to a tailor ... 

    I was speaking about inseam length, not tapering or altering the fit. Thanks for pointing that out so nobody is surprised when the time come :)

    This will be my first brand specific contest. Are we usually allowed to request a hem when we order?

    Yes, we'll be able to register our desired hem in the registration page while paying

    Thanks Collin. I don’t doubt I’ll get them back I am just impatient and his communication isn’t great. I get he is busy but a one line message to reassure me isn’t too difficult. I’ll just have to wait out!! 

    For what it's worth he's alone managing a few different operations : Europe brand representative of Resolute and Fortela, Denim repair and alteration product, owner of a denim shop and a denim brand ! 


    If it's your first time trying him out you won't be disappointed. His denim alterations are definitely the best in Europe and USA (except if you can convince Roy to alter your pair). Only a few makers in Japan would be at it's level.

    ^^ there you go sir!

    I spoke too fast hehehe. Thanks for the gigantesque update. We really appreciate it and thanks Ryo, Hajime, you and the TCB factory crew!

  6. Dang! Beautiful details and the repro seems really nicely done. I can’t wait to have more view on the fit. On that subject, Ryo took some Instagram story while Hajime was shooting the complete tux today!

    Ahh I have never tried that so I was a little worried about how much the shrinkage would be. I accidentally confused the Post soak measurements for Presoak, so thanks for the suggestion! I got nothing to lose :)

    Make sure to turn them inside out. And be easy on the dryer. Better do it a couple times safely than ruining them with big white marks on the first time. In my experience it shrinks onewash even more :)

  8. I've checked my pile today. As of now here every denim I got .... :)

    Hello there!
    I'm looking for buying a new raw denim.
    I previously had a 900xx bought one wash in son of a stag, I like the brand.
    I'm very interested on warehouse 1001xx, but i'm pretty lost on wich size to chose.
    Indeed, most of the market offers an unwashed version (rakuten or official website), and i'm not familiar with this.
    I need a 41-42 cm half waist.
    If I look on official website (https://www.ware-house.co.jp/?pid=132358411) I'd need a size 34. 88 cm with a 6/7 cm shrinkage would be fine.
    If I look on some rakuten offers, it's different.
    For exemple, here https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/earthmarket/item/wh1001xx-19/ I'd need a size 33 (90 cm to shrink 8 cm > 82 cm would be good
    Here https://item.rakuten.co.jp/joenet/warehouse-1001xx/ a size 32 would be good (87 cm to shrink 2 inches equals approximatly 82 cm
    As you can see, a little help would be nice :-)

    You take into account the shrink but not the stretch ! Generally unsanforized and raw jeans that are washed (by you) or one wash jeans stretch back to almost raw measurements (. I would advise you to take the exact same size as your 900xx. I'm a 31 in warehouse for their 800xx 1000 1001xx 1003.......


    If you are planning on buying the 1001xx on Son of a Stag, definitely email or phone them as they can help you choose the best size.

  10. Yeah sorry, definitely go for 34 waist. Plus the frequent washing will prevent over stretching. Trust me. I’ve gone from 31 to 32 and now 33 on the 710 (and it’s the 31 which fit me the « best » on the waist, not tight but just right. But the extra space sizing up gives is irremplaçable. No more troubles after washing, more comfor, better fit on thighs... Etc.)

    I agree with Collin. The waist size looks about right. A size 33 might be too tight. Inseam wise a 33 would also be better if you want the Hayashi-san look.

    A trip through the dryer can shrink them more, I think my L34 shrank additional 2 cm.

    Yes! A couple more centimeters seems to be an apprx rule for all onewash pair I’ve experienced (Resolutw and others).

    I think @andrew_ could go 33x33 or even 33x32. Going to a gemming service is also an option if you have worn your jeans, just make sure to wash and drye once before choosing the definitive length :)

    Great thread. Made the plunge after 3-4 years in orslow.


    Fit check and help pls!

    These are a 34/34.

    Anyone think I could get away with a 33/33? 34 feel snug on waist and hips, but not overly tight...

    Measurements on inseam from Beige Habeilleur were 3cm different (shorter) than what I received, sadly.

    Will these shrink overall with washing though, particularly length? Plan to wash monthly.




    I think it's a great fit and the perfect size in "width". Inseam length is really more of a personal liking. I think this length would be perfect for a double cuff. A little bit too long for single cuff. 

    Resolute one wash, in my own experience, don't really shrink more in width (they only come back to initial one wash measurments after being stretched then washed). On the other hand, my Resolute one wash have lost another 1cm in the inseam after 1 wash and 1 machine dry. 


    Try the double cuff to see if you like it. IMO don't size down waist size. Return them if you wanted a longer or shorter pair or go to Superstitch Paris (if your in France and Paris, as you bought it on Beige) and get them hemmed. He uses the same thread as Resolute (as Hayashi is his threads dealer)

  13. @MJF9 Thanks for your input ! I've tried the RMC back in Tokyo but none of the size fitted me unfortunately.

    I think John Lofgren would be better made overall with an higher attention in the Q&C part. I also like the GYW construction better on this boots and the "flat toe" construction. In the other hand Viberg has a more rounded shape and the sole is particularly good looking. (I already have Viberg service boots in CXL brown and I'm pleased with it). Hard to choose :)  If anyone have or had both, would you please let me know what you liked/disliked on the two different pairs ?

  14. I would like to get another N-1 boots in a near future to remplace my OakStreetBootmakers. I'm debating on a pair of Viberg Boondocker VS. John Lofgren M-43. I'm more into the John Lofgren because it's GYW and Vibergs are stitch down but at the same time I prefer Viberg Boondocker shape. Any advice or useful opinion ?
