    b_F, I'm really enjoying these jeans. The denim and cut are both good -- normal, not exaggerated. Is there a Resolute model that fits like this? The 710 is trimmer through the hips.

    Here you go b_F. Nice to have a pair that isn't way too long ;-)

    ^ I've only soaked them b_F. But I owe you a pic and will get it done. Great jeans, by the way, and thanks -- wouldn't have known about them without ya.

    Warehouse

    Thanks Maynard. In searching around, I found this 800 review from b_F, including his specific comments regarding the denim. Do you or others know if there are other Warehouse jeans in their current lineup that offer this same 14 oz, Memphis denim? I see various models with similar (1000XX) nomenclature that have different denim (e.g., 13.5 oz. banner or lighter weight DSB). https://indigoshrimp.wordpress.com/2016/08/27/warehouse-800-review-by-beautiful_freak/ "The 800 model uses Warehouse’s 1000XX denim , which is a 14oz 6×6 denim made of 100% Memphis cotton, warp dyed with pure indigo. This denim was also used in the Warehouse 660 Contest that was held by Blue in Green many years ago. It isn’t overly engineered like Oni, Samurai or PBJ denim but has a decent amount of hairiness, neps, slubs and irregularities without losing the vintage-vibe of the denim."

    ^ Sorry guys, not the cotton/linen 800, just the standard version from 2015. Was just curious about the denim. I think it's around 14 oz. but the texture is different than more recent Warehouse models.

    I have two 800 pairs in size 34, one I've worn occasionally for a couple years and one still raw. I was going to sell the raw pair, but have to say that there's something unique and really nice about the 800 denim -- soft but highly textured. Seems different than other denims. Can someone tell me more about its weight or other properties?

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Ok, but keep those diapers on L or you'll have to wash the Resolutes too often ;-)

    I'm a 17 in FW shirts and prefer XL in their tees. L would probably fit better pre-wash, but they'll come in a little.

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I'm a natural size 35 (and most of my Roy jeans are 34), so like Josh'N'Roll, it can be two weeks before the waist stretches out to the comfort zone. Compared to other denim (certainly Full Count), I find Cone not particularly stretchy, maybe due to the tightness of weave. If I had it to do over again, I'd buy some of the trimmer Roy models (e.g., Kinda Special) in 36 rather than 34. I'll try to keep this in mind when Roy brings them back ;-)

    ^ How old is Puma now? JK -- good to see that big boy with a smiling b_F.
  11. ^ Like others, I really like the people at TCB. Ryo, in particular, is a fantastic guy, who will go to great lengths to be sure you're happy and satisfied with their products and service. I also really like the 40s jeans and jacket. The jacket runs small but the fit and proportions are spot on. A simple TCB product that I use everyday is the newspaper bag -- beautifully made, the right size, and easy to carry. So good, I bought two. To top it off, TCB pricing is lower than many of its competitors.
  12. I've owned a bunch of Roy jeans over the years and got to know him a little (we had coffee together in Oakland years ago). I can't remember exactly what prompted this, but Roy laid some truth on me, letting me know that my incessant questions and (or) price inquiries were annoying as hell. He said something like, 'John, you may think retailers like you because they're nice to your face, but they don't. No one is making a lot of money in this business -- show some respect.' It wasn't fun hearing this and Roy is direct like a laser. I was tempted to be defensive and react in anger, but I've learned that this gets me nowhere and I learn nothing. So I engaged him further and we sort of got past it. He admitted that he has his faults and is not an easy guy to get along with. My relationship with Roy, such as it is, is somewhere between difficult and non-existent. But I do respect the guy -- honest, direct, creative, and not without insight.
  13. Not feeling much hate, but certainly some regret, including buying too much too fast, especially slim fit jeans. Regarding CSF, I actually like the jeans but buying them never felt quite right (e.g., high prices, full payment up front, and long wait times). As nice as the jeans are (not to mention the boxes and packaging), I always asked myself, 'Is this guy for real?'

    ^ Boots look great — beautiful, rich color and simple, classic style.

    One Mulholland owner mentioned to me that he only uses the interior pocket.
