  1. Full Count Denim Thread

    I have a pair of 1101 in sz 31 that fit okay just out of the wash but quickly stretch out way too large (enough so that I gave them to my brother). I wanted to pick up a pair of 1108s with arcs while I can, thinking a size 30 would be a good bet. What do you guys think?

    Wow that's a serious taper.

    Thanks guys, agreed on 15oz SDA fabric. Hard to beat. Good to know about the Denime XX, need a new pair soon.

    SD-103s, ~3 years lots of washes. Repairs by @chicote holding up really well, thanks again.
  5. Shoes that look better with age...

    It can be. Not in my case, my pair was ordered in store 6/29/15, received it in the mail 8/20/15. 7 weeks ain't bad.

    Sorry no XL!

    I've got a size L with a few washes/dries of varying temperatures. Measures at a 21.5" chest, 19.5" shoulders, 25.5" long (from top of rear collar to bottom of hem). No serious shrinkage except it shortened up a bit after the first wash.

    Shout out to @chicote, wearing my repaired SD-103s. Can't thank him enough, they turned out great. Bonus kitty butthole
  9. Hey all, I've been getting a lot of pity points lately. Chicote is going to fix my SDAs that got wrecked and now my wonderful GF wants to buy me a new pair. I'm trying to keep it low budget, thinking the SC1947 at ~130 is my best best, or maybe a pair of TCB 50s but that's a little more expensive. Any options I'm missing in a similar price bracket? Looking for a simple straight cut pair to serve as my new daily wear. Edit: oops I meant to post in the other stickied thread.

    Thanks again everybody. Yeah, rubbed a significant portion away as I slid. Something similar happened to my skin on one shoulder.

    Thanks guys. That is a very generous offer Chicote, these jeans have been through a lot with me and I would love to have them wearable again. I will take you up on that in the next few days.

    SG hoodie, 2-3yrs wear. Was wearing it when I dumped my bike on the highway, shredded it pretty well. Don't ride without proper gear. Check SDA thread for more pics. Have a great 4th, stay safe.

    SD-103s, 2ish years wear, lots of washes. Forced into early retirement, I flung myself off my motorcycle on the highway yesterday. Be careful out there. I'm okay, just scraped up but my pants are pretty wrecked. Probably the final update for these guys, won't be able to afford repairs for a long while. Front isn't too bad, you can see where my phone was in my pocket. The butt is pretty torn up. A lot of the stitching on the rear right pocket abraded away and the small hole from my wallet became a very large hole. My wallet and its contents were strewn across the median, though everything was still in one piece. All in all, a very sobering experience. Ride safely, wear real gear. I was wearing these jeans and my SG hoodie, and I'm incredibly lucky to have walked away from that. I was at least wearing a full face helmet, if I had been wearing a half helm (which I had seriously considered before leaving) my face would have been spread along the median. Have a great 4th of July everyone, be safe if you're out driving tonight.

    Thanks for the input. Yeah I agree a hem would clean up the fit but it's too late for me, these are stuck at their full length. It would break my heart to cut off the factory hem at this point.

    Love my 103s, honestly too big for me but whatever. Sloppy fit doesn't bother me too much.
