    mine are 10 euros from a vending machine in la belle france or 5-er from charity shop [with a hot wash after, of course...] ... choose what to spend your money on, don't decide to make all things expensive ...

    ... said this elsewhere, I do like a bit of flecktarn in the summer, but that is a different historical beast to the above ... off topic, but within camo talk ... found this in the vintage showroom book: 1940s british desert pink camo ... that is something I could roll with ...

    maybe they ran out of fabric? fwiw wabash isn't exactly 40s specific either... but yes: testicular CoD cosplay is a metaphor that will stay with me...

    [ ... lots of ink spilt on DB over lvc inaccuracies ... ] ... seem to remember Ryo posting somewhere that the 14oz was decided after their fabric analysis ... can't find the post tho, so may be my unconscious not fact ...

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    The dimness of memory tells me he makes the argument that the way the denim was measured differed 'back then' so that the older 19th century models were of a similar weight to post-war (and that he made this point to Levi's who roundly ignored him) ... but I may be mistaken ... here he is on the DB lvc page: 9 ounce was the equivalent to today’s 12 ounce ...
  10. phenomenal pair! favorite area is the marbling on shin & calf area...

    100x100% this... believe in your choices... believe in the charts... plus: "there is no purity, only struggle..." [to struggle to get them on, or to keep them up...]

    100% this! too small is impossible to wear, too big just adds volume... shortened legs dissipate any bulkiness of that volume... looking forward to the fit pix if they come... shortest inseam of the comp... & pretty sure they said they were going to be strict with the cut off this time ... looks like the link was taken down at the stroke of 23.59 Japan time ...

    yikes! my default position is to size up [so such advise is always to be taken with a pinch of salt... but Volvo's advise to me; they are the same as the 50s, if current 50s too tight, go up a size from that for the 40s ... ] ... I find the 50s to be pretty trim all round in the top block (now have a 55 lvc in same size to compare to the tcb 50; def. more breathing room all round in the lvc ... ) ryo may still be at his desk / phone to advise? [and generally I find reasons to not wear things are because they are too small rather than too big...]

    those do look like the 33 on the chart... what have you ordered for the 40s?

    most have that dilemma I am guessing! rather than setting goals to aim at, I am accommodating my fatness; giving it space to shift & allowing for the much loved diaper butt as things move along ... not expecting to win style or fade points on this one!

    epic business people yes to @chicote and all newcomers... yes to the triplet 111! with a o/w 30 inseam order [with big waist worn on hips] I reckon I can get a mini-cuff for a while, then will prob shrink to a wide-waist-wide-leg no-cuff ankle swinger [dependent on how the rise etc. holds up ... ] that is going to see a lot of washing... @81611 my advice is always size up but I like things roomy: @erk and @Jared_Lee are the experts at that 31x31 range...
