  1. Geeman, until I can get supermarket to work for me, I can't really post them there. Is it wrong, for example, to say that I have a Samurai 510 or Fullcount 1108 in size 36 or is that too detailed?
  2. It looks like the supermarket is closed -- was this recent? What is the recommended way to sell pre-owned jeans here on sufu? Is it OK to post for-sale items in manufacturer sub-forums (e.g., Warehouse, Samurai)? Thanks, John

    That's some serious shrinkage Julian -- over 3" in both the waist and inseam. Did you hang or machine dry these? Thanks, John.

    Looks great. Such a comfortable pair of jeans.
  5. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Thanks Broark and TheEscapist. Roy has definitely tweaked the fit from KS to original Test Lot to Memorial/new Test Lot. I have KS1001/1002 (very linear, pretty straight from top to bottom, trim through the hips, high rise) and original Test Lot (lower rise, a bit more room from knee down). This new Test Lot looks comfortable -- roomier in top block and knee, with some taper down below. Tempting, but too many jeans purchases this past year -- need to hire a jeans wearer ;-)
  6. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Thanks Broark. You're saying the Memorial and this new offering are bigger in the thigh area, with higher rise, and wider or narrower down below?

    Anyone remember what the cut of the original Test Lot was a few years ago? Different than Memorial or these new jeans?
  8. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    tigerstrom, I’m a 36 in Resolute 710 and Ooe. If you’re a 35 in Ooe, the 710 waist in 36 may be a touch big, though the rest of the 710 is pretty trim. They’re fairly different cuts in that the 710 leans toward a slimmer fit overall while the Ooe has room through the hips but the waist comes in. I like both but appreciate the extra room of the Ooe in the hips and upper thighs. John

    Foxy2, 01 and 02 are the same up top, with more room from the knee down on the 01. I like 'em both but prefer 02 -- my favorite cut of jeans, period. I don't think 03 is a cut! John
  10. Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Beautiful jeans Jeremy. Never enough Ooe's. Saw Neil, Elliott, and Gen (sp?) today -- much that's tempting, but Ooe is a no-brainer. Seems to fit almost every body type and made and sewn beautifully by Ryo and Hiro.

    Nice pictures Broark. I'm also envious of the size 36 since the Roys I own are all 34. They fit pretty well but, with a few exceptions, Roy's jeans are pretty linear through the hips, which can get a little tight on me (I may have gained a pound or two also). Beautifully finished jeans overall though and I've found the Cone denim to be very durable. To-date, I have a few of them, including KS1001 and 1002, and Test Lot.

    Will we be losing the 1101 too? My favorite FC cut and oh-so-comfortable in XX or banner.

    I wear a 34 in TCB 50s and 36 in Ooe 01. The top blocks are fairly similar in both pairs (of different tag sizes) but the TCBs are a bit wider from the thigh down. The overall line of the two cuts is pretty similar though the TCB is wider below the top block. If I were to compare size 34-to-34 or 36-to-36, the Ooes would be considerably smaller everywhere. Another way of putting this, just as the Ooe 01 is wider than the Ooe 02, the TCB is wider than the 01.
  15. Warehouse

    Yes, what does it mean? I'm interested in knowing since I have a pair of Lot DD-1003 SXX Limited (1943 Model) One Wash, and love 'em, but don't really know what DD means! I'm guessing it's a slubby type of denim ...
