    Sugar Cane Denim

    The fit on the 1947 is pretty close to the Okinawa so if the Okinawa is too baggy, you'll find the 1947 too baggy too. If you're not into a looser fit, you should look into their slimmer models (2009, 2014, OKBSP)

    That's an awesome color. I cant believe I haven't walked over half a block to see them in person yet at dsptch. I dont think it's necessary to only have a backpack if you're going to be carrying a ton of stuff. We're no longer in grade school. We dont need to carry text books anymore. My backpack is generally just a book, water bottle, external phone battery, lotion, and if I'm feeling ambitious, I'll throw in a snack. It's basically a backpack version of my mom's purse when I was growing up.

    The shrinkage is pretty minimal on that denim. If you hot wash and dry, you might be able to get it to shrink a little bit but as you know very well with waists, the end result after stretch will be the same.

    The Flat Head

    I think that's a pretty solid fit. I think you'll appreciate the little bit of extra room as you break them and put stuff in your pockets.

    @Cold Summer For what it's worth, I went with the size on the Okinawa, Hawaii and 1947 that is a little snug in the waist and they all stretched out nicely. My waist is a little under a 30 and I got 29s in all of them. The fit ends up somewhere between a classic 1947 and a slim straight.

    Depends which one you're looking at. The sizing has been adjusted for the newer shirts this year so if it's one of the newer spring/summer ones, a large could work. The cut is still on the slim side but not really any slimmer than you'd expect from a western.

    I took that photo on that Denimhunters Instagram and can attest that it looked just as great in person.

    Dang, that new rjb fabric looks really good. I’m starting to see more worn in jeans using that fabric but that’s the best one so far.

    The arcuates are stitched further up so that when they fold the pockets it'll hide part of the arcs on the inside. He also put a curve on the pockets so it's an acorn-esque shape but still has enough room at the bottom of your wallet if you're like me and have a chunkier wallet. Normally I gravitate towards unsanforized but I've seen a lot of examples of how this fabric ages and it's just as good as anything Stevenson puts out. The jeans are cool but I'm actually more excited about the tops he's done...it was hard to decide what to buy because everything was just so good.

    We had one ma-1 left over from the previous season when we got the most recent run and i honestly would not be able to tell you which one is the older version now. No noticeable difference.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    It shrinks a lot more and....that's really it. Fabric tends to feel a lot softer and brings out of the hairs so it does feel...I guess fluffier is the best way to describe it. I've done with plenty with jeans inside out, with other clothes, and I try to flatten some of the bigger creases before it goes in if possible.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    The naming of these cuts is a little confusing but it's basically 1947 and then 2009 (type II) and then 2014 (type III). They're all slimmed down versions of the 1947 with 2014 being the slimmest of the 3.

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    I'm a fan of Viberg for the most part and I think it's an interesting idea for them to branch into sneakers but I just can't get behind those sneakers. Even knowing the materials, it still looks like knockoff of an imaginary collab between new balance and sketchers with design input from Steph curry.
