    You need to get the white version now! In saying that, has anyone ordered any of the white ones? I'm not game enough to wear white because I will get them filthy without even trying. If I had any skills in dying things, it would be neat to try with the white ones

    If yours got ~2cm shorter for the one-wash, I should chuck my pair in for a spin before I continue wearing mine. I'm jealous of your bandana too. I've gotten stickers but unfortunately no bandanas! Update: I hot machine washed and tumble dried my pair... The inseam lost around 2cm but all other dimensions basically stayed the same. Denim is also a bit softer/easier to wear now.

    I know that feeling =/ It's a beautiful watch but I'm not at a stage in my life where I need something like this just yet. Best of luck with the sale! =)

    The measurements on the WH website are definitely one-wash. If you're referring to the waist and thigh measurements, S&S measure them differently from what most people are used to (i.e. waist is measured without aligning the waistband and thigh is measured 1" down from crotch). Check it out here https://standardandstrange.com/pages/how-we-measure. The conversion for other measurements seem quite similar to me.

    Upon further reading/research (if I can call it that), it seems that some 710s will just never develop leg twist =/ I'm honestly not sure why this would be the case and still remains a mystery to me. Does it depend on what part of the roll is used? I can't imagine they would be sewn differently? These pictures show 710s that have clearly been worn and washed so I really don't know. Taken from the Piisu JP website... And taken from Zabou...

    Oh yeah, here's pics of my '76s. Haven't worn them in a long time, mostly because I need to fix the inseam around the hem as well as reinforce some of the fabric around the seat. I kinda hate the phone and wallet fade that developed, which is why I no longer sit with my phone in my pocket (to avoid the sharp corners rubbing too much) and use a "normal" bifold wallet sans concho.

    For those wondering, I own the 711 (32/32) and recently purchased the 710 (33/33). Here's the comparison of measurements fresh from the mailbag. They were both one-wash. 711 OW - size 32/32 Waist 40cm Front rise 27.75cm Back rise 37cm Thigh 32.75cm Knee 24.75cm Hem 22.5cm Inseam 76cm 710 OW - size 33/33 Waist 40cm Front rise 28cm Back rise 38cm Thigh 30.5cm Knee 21.5cm Hem 19.25cm Inseam 78cm Still busy af, so haven't taken any pictures of me wearing both. Maybe I'll have time tomorrow morning... Also, the rise of the 711 stretched a bit but don't have proper measurements on hand. I'll update y'all on the worn-in measurements soon. In terms of proportion, it's hard for me to say... The 711 might seem disproportionate because it's based on the kid's version of the '50s 501 which must have had different proportions compared to the adult version (I believe that's because Hayashi-san determined that the adult 501 was not suitable for Japanese body shapes whereas the kid's one was). If my 711 had thighs, knees, and hems that were around 1cm to 1.5cm smaller, then it would be similar to my LVC '66 cut. I guess the 710 looks more proportionate as a slim jean but that could be quite subjective. The denim is different as well. Off the top of my head, I can't say how, but can also update later.

    I have been wearing my 710 for a few days now. They're the one-wash version, but I reckon I might chuck them in the washing machine and dryer to soften them up. I've been busy so I'll take some pics over the weekend.

    Did something I didn't need (but wanted) to... Measurements for those interested: Waist 40cm Front rise 28cm Back rise 38cm Thigh 30.5cm Knee 21.5cm Hem 19.25cm Inseam 78cm I'll take some more pics and a fit pic later. Definitely my slimmest pair, but still a welcome addition
  14. Cool, I might give that a try!

    For those that want to scratch that itch, here's the new Roy R01Sail Very Nice Pocket Bag Jeans!
  17. Quick question... Have any of you sold things via Instagram (e.g. through your stories/posts)? Any luck? I got a heap of things I want to sell. I went back onto Grailed then got discouraged by the amount of lowballing and how slow/old the site is.

    Here's my 1947s... Haven't worn them in years because they're way too small (if I recall, they were quite slim/undersized from the get-go). I had the crotch repaired a while ago and will probably get the knee repaired before giving them to my sister!

    Yep, I machine wash (with spin cycle) and straight into the dryer afterwards. Depending on what I'm feeling at the time, it could either be a cold or hot wash! Nothing too special, really haha

    Here's my 1966 501s. I wear and wash these the most out of the LVC pairs that I own. Hope y'all enjoy it! I've got pics of my '47s and '76s as well (I don't wear these two anymore). I'll post them later =)

    Took pictures of a bunch of jeans because I'm selling them. Thought y'all would appreciate some pictures here too! It's crazy to see how high some people put their prices on Grailed...

    New Contest Suggestions

    '40s contest seems to be the most popular! That would also be my vote although I'm unsure whether I'd participate. I suffer from severe commitment issues when it comes to wearing one pair of jeans haha I think I've bowed out of every comp so far

    Lol yeah that was probably me you're remembering because my 711s were signed by him when he went to Bears. These days, it feels like it every day has been a fat day haha Also, this is my 711 from the front
