    That is pretty low for most standard thigh measurements but it seems like this guy is just going to measure wherever he can to get the measurements that prove that you're wrong. that sucks. eBay probably will side with him. I had a guy once buy a pair of pants from me, didnt say a word about having an issue, tried to resell it again bc it didnt fit a few weeks later, and then when it didnt sell, he somehow complained that I sold him a pair the was modified and got his money back. so awesome.

    Yeah. I’m pretty sure I’ve machine dried also a couple times but mostly hang dry.

    Another update 4 months later on this pair of Stevenson jeans. It’s lightened up a lot but the photos do look a little lighter than in real life . These probably get a weekly wash at this point. Kids and animals are disgusting.

    Another 1947 update after they dried outside. They probably are at a year of wear and i think washed every 2-3 weeks? Not really sure ive only had to repair a broken stitch in the crotch so they’re holding up well.

    When I first got into it, I was all about the arcs. I was especially into the Strike Gold arcs (still have a soft spot for those arcs) but generally now I prefer no arcs or a very simple single stitch design. I think I stared at the flat head arcs of my 3009 for too long one day and decided that it was too much for me and that I prefer to not have it and that's just stuck with me. I never cared much for having Levis arcs on them but the red tabs are cool esp when they're ripped up and worn in with the rest of the jeans. I did like how stevenson did the arc on their 210/220 jeans. I think it was slightly polarizing but I appreciate the simplicity and humor in how they did it.

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    yeah the arm hole width does play into it as well...very true about all the variables that are not reflected in given measurements making a noticeable difference. Obviously best if you you can try it in person, but if you're deciding between 38 and 40 and you're usually a 42 in Japanese brands, I do feel pretty confident that 38 is going to be on the small side.

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    I found with my own SC jackets (I had the type II with the 14.25oz fabric and also the type I awa-shoai jacket) only shrank a little bit with a cold gentle wash and air dry. I have 1947 which is the same fabric as the type II and with a warm wash and machine dry (or dry in the sun) it shrank like a half size overall with a little more in length. They do fit bigger so it's not unusual to size down from other Japanese brands but I dont know about two sizes down. you may fit it but it seems like it'd be snug and short. I'd personally go with 40 and then if you need, give it a warm machine wash and see where that gets you.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    they do run small so it's not unusual to need to size up 1 or 2 depending on the desired fit...the first model on the product page, I believe we sized him up 2 so it's got a little more room in the leg while the second model, David, he only sized up 1 for a trimmer fit. the waist will stretch decently so it just comes down to how slim you want to go. I generally advise people to size up 2 bc you can always wash it on a warmer cycle and/or dry in the machine to get it to shrink down if needed. With a cold wash and air dry, the shrink for this fabric is mostly in length. I've gotten my last pair of okinawas to shrink almost a size with a hot machine wash and dry cycle. In hindsight I wish I didnt do that bc my body decided to expand and I'm apparently preshrunk so there's no getting smaller for me.

    all of us are just trying to outlive at least one other person on this forum so we can take advantage of sales like these.

    WAYWT 2022 [denim edition]

    Yeah it is. I’ve only cold washed and air dried once so the shrink was a little under an inch in the length? I’m assuming it’ll shrink a little more later with a few more washes. I also sized up bc i know at some point, it’ll get dried. Im a big fan of it. It’s heavy but the fabric has some give which is nice for a pullover.
