    Perfect fit, not too slim.

    Ugh me too...and I have too many jeans that fit similarly to the 66 already. This will serve as my Cone tribute.
  3. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    I've noticed that vintage levis (in thrift stores or pics) sometimes have wider, 1/2 inch hems. It seems most all Japanese repros hem to 3/4 inch. Both look nice but my question is which one is more authentic?

    Oh, didn't see you there was just browsing around for a good read at the local molecular biology library Vintage M-51 Resolute 710 New balance 990

    Some favorable outdoor lighting on my balcony. Contrast not quite so high in real life though.
  6. having trouble digging through the sufu archives figuring out how size Eternal 811... If I want a fit similar to TCB 50s (true straight) how should I size for Eternal 811? Debating between 28 and 29. I wear 28 in TCB for a perfect fit. My Resolute 710 are size 29 and too snug in the waist and thighs. My FC 1101 size 28 are too loose in the waist (I measured 30) but the thighs are fine. Thanks
  7. What are your favorite jeans?

    All these FC1101 comments are making me sad..! I want to break them in so bad but I tend to wear them the least since the top block stretches out and gets really saggy. But while I'm here I might as well chime in with TCB 50s. Best fit, love the texture.

    Those bush pants are insane...!

    I thought I didn't have too much going on for my 50s but after a wash the grainy-ness of the denim just sky rocketed!! edit: unfortunately, public wifi killed the quality but you get the idea.
  10. Thanks to all!

    Puerh is my go to when I'm out of coffee. Too bad its even worse for the teeth!

    I've never researched LVC (with a buyer's mindset) but it sounds like its now or never for a pair with Cone denim. What's a fair price (for White Oak Cone)? It sounds like a lot of LVC advertises Cone denim but it isn't White Oak.

    I sized up one and they're perfect for a slim fit. If I could do it again I would size up two for a more authentic straight fit. But full disclosure I have big thighs
  13. Full Count Denim Thread

    I've worn my FC 1101 only a small handful of times and one of the arcs has a thread dangerously close to breaking haha. These are definitely the softest jeans I've ever owned. They're practically sweatpants. The sizing can be tricky... I went TTS (since these run large and I have thunder-thighs) but these stretch enough that I get saggy butt syndrome. They fit perfectly after a wash though. Hopefully they shrink up over time-- I think I had saggy butt in my TCB 50s but after a couple washes they're golden.

    They come with the tab sewn into the waistband. You'll have to remove it and sew it on yourself

    Here's an update after 3 maybe 4 washes. The lighting is really off but I tried to get it so the color of the jeans is most accurate. Wish I had a little more to show in terms of contrast but I am (eventually) going for an ultra washed out vintage look.
