    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Got these delivered from Maarkt from their clear out sale. Size UK 12. https://www.marrkt.com/collections/october-clearance
  4. @dau interesting, I was after S0555vx in size 46 that they were advertising but they got back to me saying it was out of stock. I might try and see if there is anything els3 they can get from the Samurai website.
  5. @Maynard Friedman brilliant thanks mate
  6. thanks for the response @JDelage hmmmm i was hoping that wouldn't be the case, at the bottom of their advert they state that returns are not possible, I have the S553XX (type 3) in a size 46 and its a pretty good fit so fingers crossed it will be of a similar size... @andrewrose did you manage to contact them via the Rakuten website? I'm looking at the page and went tot he shop information but couldn't see a direct way to email them, can't wait to use google translate-hopefully nothing gets lost in translation and I won't offend anyone!?! I'll be getting the item sent to the UK but in your experience how much extra have you paid for the delivery?
  7. So I am thinking of using Rakuten for the first time as I am after a Samurai Type 1 denim jacket, there is one outlet called 2nd and it looks like there are 2 jackets both in size 46: https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/2nd/item/sj-s0555vx/ https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/2nd/item/sj-s0551xx/ I think I have seen the outlet mentioned before on other threads and i was wondering if anyone has had dealings with them or contacted them? I really want to double check sizing before I commit. Any help would be appreciated.

    I’ve been to their factory and their store when it was in Shoreditch. Some really nice pieces, especially the chore jacket and it would interesting to see a faded version of the Turkish selvedge. The only problem is that I have too much denim, which stops anything they have from jumping out at me. If I buy anything it will be to support a local brand but would I wear it, maybe for a week or two, tops.

    Managed to bag a pair of Ooe from Standard and Strange and a PJB Shirt from Okayama sale: really chuffed!

    @jkbrwn great fades mate, I have a pair of 1000 that are slowly getting there. I also copped myself a pair of the 700C but sized up to a 38 (36 had already sold out), i was hoping that a couple of hot soaks would have a big impact but they’re still pretty roomy. If I stand with my legs wide apart the jeans look great but I look a bit strange :)

    I tried SoSo clothing and got a 5oz selvedge chambray shirt. Happy with the way it fits (went with their XL measurements) and I hope it ages well. 2nd pic displays the fabric against a pair of Hellers.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    On one of these threads somebody complained how a brown weft just made the denim look dirty as it faded. Personally I have a Tanuki jacket and jeans both indigo x indigo, the denim is great and look forward to seeing them age.
