  1. Thinking about picking up a pair of 1001hxx, the Warehouse x Hinoya collab. Does anyone think the 1001 run small? This guy weighs slightly less than me and is the same height but apparently fits a size 29 though normally I would have gone for a size 28. I wear 28 in TCB 50s and those are still a tad loose. I wear 29 in Resolute 710 and those fit perfectly. Thanks for the help!
  2. Sewed on the tab and thought I'd share. No washes yet
  3. These are insane!! Makes me want to pull out the 501s I gave up on...

    Anyone bought direct from inoue-san and can chime in on shipping costs? I would rather do this if possible for the better hem.

    That sale is tempting... Anyone have measurements for 60s in size 28? I wear 28 in 50s but they're a bit loose in the waist; however, I wear 29 in my resolute 710s and those are fine. I don't trust the denimio measurements very much. Their hems never seem as nice as the factory ones but man they are cheap.
  6. This was is a great thread... here's to hoping more pics drop here soon! Wish my 710 were further along so I could contribute.
  7. Try the TCB 50s, mine almost reach my belly button with an 11.5 front rise and 15.5 back rise on a size 28. If you're interested in repos you'll generally find high rises across brands so long as you're looking at regular straight fits. Anyways, where do you all get your basic tees? I'm looking for some midweight black/gray ones around $30. Filson makes one for $38 but I'm not sure of the quality. https://www.filson.com/men/shirts/t-shirts/short-sleeve-outfitter-solid-one-pocket-t-shirt-10859.html#700 I know Naked & Famous makes circular knit tees for $38 as well but I'm afraid they'll end up too tight and too long. https://www.blueowl.us/collections/all-products/products/naked-and-famous-10oz-circular-knit-t-shirt-in-black?variant=1117134673 They don't have to be fancy; I'm only concerned that they aren't stretchy and they will last.
  8. Welcome to Texas! If you haven't already, check out the Kimbell Art Museum too. Its like 15 minutes away. If you're into art, or at least seeing some big names, you won't be disappointed. Michelangelo's first painting is there, Caravaggio's probably most famous painting, some Da Vinci, and of course much more artists/sculptures spanning a variety of styles. I personally like it much more than the Dallas Museum of Art. The Kimbell is actually pretty modestly sized so you won't be drowning in art either. Also, its free.

    Me too, I was a little disappointed. But I did notice the other day that the my 50s have alternating thread colors on the waistband stitching. Very subtle, but a cool touch.
  10. Anyone have a go-to method for stretching out the top block? My studio dartisan 103 have gotten pretty tight over the last two washes. I don't think the denim has very much give, though I haven't tried when wet.
  11. Bonus pic in fortuitous lighting
  12. Here's my 103 fit. They get lower rise every wash would definitely size one up if I could do it again. Maybe even two. Sadly they don't see as many wears since they're a bit uncomfortable.
  13. Gotta get these hemmed but maybe I'll wait until the first wash. Anyone want to chime in on the long-term inseam shrinkage?
  14. Well well well... A pair of nwt one wash 710s showed up at my door today, courtesy of buyee and yahoo auctions. I think I will be wearing this pair... Very often. I ended up sizing up one to 29. Some thoughts: love the fit and I like how's there's some room to stretch. The fabric is really comfortable and almost a metallic gray blue compared to everything else I own. Seems to be one color of orange stitching throughout but that's no deal breaker. The last pic is a comparison against my sd-103 which is a much deeper indigo even after two washes. Sorry for the terrible pictures as well
  15. Anyone used Buyee before? They're a proxy for Yahoo Auctions. I know some people here have used Sutocorp. Any preferences?
