    It’s def big esp since my wrists are smaller but i think it’s alright. The shorter lugs work in my favor.

    I impulse bought a seiko srpb99 samurai a month ago. It’s been my new daily watch.

    @laismemoir From what I've seen, the imperial cut seems a little straighter than the Valencia. If you want something to compare the Valencia to from Stevenson, you may want to look into the Carmel. It's new for SS19 but Self Edge is getting it in soon.

    I think you mean the 714 and the imperial 120? yeah if you're looking for a little more thigh room after shrink than your 666, then I think sizing up to a 33 in the 714 would be good after you get the shrink out. 32 would work but it'd end up being about the same slimness in the thigh as your 666.

    the 666 is a very different cut from the 714 but with that said, you prob could go with a size 32 if you’re good with a much stronger taper than the 666. If you want something closer to the 666, you should look at the 727.

    After wearing only straight leg jeans for a while, i tried out a 714 Valencia straight tapered jean since i had gained some weight and it allowed me to get into a bigger size that gave me more room in the calf. I was surprised in how much i liked the tapered fit. I did a warm wash with a quick machine dry.

    eh I don't expect this to be any different than any other unsanforized model of jean by any brand. This is actually a lot easier because you can buy the size that fits you just right and stick to cold gentle cycle washes (or the suggested roy bathtub wash) or you can buy a little bigger and do your normal wash/dry cycle.

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I believe the measurements on Roy's website are not for the run that he did for self edge. That was for his previous run that was a little different of a fit and not soaked. The self edge model was lukewarm soaked by roy for 20 minutes so if you machine wash in cold, it'll shrink up only a little bit. If you're washing on warm and drying, then you're going to get significant shrink. Given how much my RT1002 shrank with multiple warm washes, you'd probably get almost another size of shrink if you also dry it.

    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)

    3sixteen Jeans

    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.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    @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.
