  1. Warehouse

    Here are the post soak measurements on my Warehouse 1105 LTD and 800 (both size 34). Both nice fits but pretty different. I prefer the rise on the 1105 -- not too high or low. Also more room through the thigh. Then, yes, they do taper. But it's a really nice cut -- comfortable but trim. One of my favorite fits. 1105 800 Waist 34" 35" Front Rise 11.5 12 Back Rise 16.5 16.5 Thigh 13.25 12.75 Knee 9.375 9.25 LO 8 8.75 Inseam 32.5 34.25
  2. Warehouse

    After looking at the posts above, I ordered the 1943 model in size 34: http://www.ware-house.co.jp/?pid=129574914 Warehouse provided the following measurements of the 1943 compared to the 800 and 1105, also in size 34: 1943 (one wash): Waist 86 cm, Thigh 33, Front Rise 33, Back Rise 42, Length 84, Leg Opening 22 800 (raw): Waist 90 cm, Thigh 33, Front Rise 32, Back Rise 43, Length 89, Leg Opening 23 1105 (raw): Waist 92 cm, Thigh 35, Front Rise 30.5, Back Rise 43.5, Length 88, Leg Opening 20

    Wearing the 800 today and am reminded how soft and comfortable these jeans are -- which prompted me to take a look at the last few Warehouse pages here. I see there are a number of tempting models that I'm not familiar with, including 1943, '45, and '47. Now to figure out how they all compare to the 800 and 1105 that I already own and love ...
  4. Congratulations Tilmann -- I don't know how you hid the TCB 50s jacket and Resolute 710's under that wedding shirt and suit!
  5. Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Anyone find the heavier weight Ooes (e.g., DB01, Golden Gate) to be smaller in the waist for the same size than standard weight (OA01/02)? Either I'm getting fatter or the heavier jeans are smaller or stretch less.
  6. Which pair if you were stranded on an island?

    Ooe OA02 or TCB 50s. Today, I am Resolute (710) ...
  7. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    b_F, your PM reminded me to report on the jeans after wearing them a bit. I like them even more now -- the thighs have stretched perfectly and the denim texture, feel, and color are great. While the waist is 1" too big, it's not an issue since a belt fixes it and they don't sag down much without a belt since the rise is only moderate. In addition to the nice color and texture, I sort of like the fact that the 710 looks trim but isn't restrictive in the waist -- a nice counterpoint to other fits (e.g.. Ooe, Warehouse 1105, FC1101).

    ^ Here are the post soak measurements of the 710 (36x36), which include stretch after wearing them today: Waist 36.5" Front Rise 11.75" Back Rise 16.5" Thigh 13.5" Knee 9" Leg Opening 8.25" Inseam 34.75" I like them (simple, clean, nice color, nice texture). However, as b_F and others have said, the thighs are trim. So to get the thighs to fit, the waist has to be big. Overall, they're trimmer through the thighs, knees, and legs than any jeans I own, but the waist is bigger. Kind of comfortable actually but different than other jeans I like (FC1101, Ooe A02, Warehouse 1105, TCB 50s).

    Resolute 710 36x36 raw came in the mail today from Yuichi. They look great and will get a hot soak later today. Here are the raw measurements for those interested: Waist 37.0" Front Rise 12.125" Back Rise 16.5" Thigh 13.5" Knee 9.125" LO 8.375" Inseam 35.875"
  10. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Yuichi of Kaizoku-Pirates has been good to work with over the years. I asked him about the Resolute 710 months ago and he only had one wash. He said he'd ask Resolute about a raw pair and get back to me. I almost forgot about it, to be honest, but weeks later he emailed, saying the raw jeans were coming in a few days. I've not ordered anything from Naoki at Pants Shop Avenue ... yet ;-)

    Ordered a pair of 710 raw (36x36) from Yuichi (Kaizoku-Pirates) a few weeks ago -- should have them in a week or so. Held out for a few years, but the time had come. All of your pics above, B_F's enabling over the years, and garden gnomes' Ooe reference, were just too much to overcome ;-) John
  12. Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    goodrain, FWIW, I'm a 34 in the Warehouse 800 and a 36 in Ooe. John
  13. Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    I see Ooe has OA01XX-1217 and OA02-1017 on their site. Both are 13.4 oz and 01 is the wider cut, but what are the denim differences (again)?
  14. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    FWIW, I have a few pairs of Roy jeans, including KS1001, KS1002, and Test Lot 00 and have found the Cone Denim to not be especially stretchy. While they will stretch a little after soaking or washing, they stretch significantly less than other jeans I'm familiar with (e.g., Fullcount, Ooe, Warehouse, Samurai). YMMV, of course, but just wanted to pass on my experience.

    ^ Refresh our memory b_F regarding which Conner's you like or wear most. I need another pair of jeans ;-) I know exactly what you mean -- high rise jeans tend to fall to the same spot on our body. Nonetheless, I do find Ooe fit to be about perfect and the FC1101 is darn good too. This may be because I have 'cannonball ass', as my friends used to say in high school -- my hips aren't exactly trim. For me, the key measurements in the top block are the back rise and hips -- both need to be a touch generous. But the front rise can vary quite a bit and still be comfortable.
