    I'd like to know as well. My waist is 33, so I'd have to go with XXL according to size their chart? That doesn't sound right.

    I like the idea of a shop coat, but I don't like the exposed metal buttons. It would scratch the paint and finish of everything you're working on. But I guess it's more for fashion anyway.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Deadstock means unworn vintage jeans with original tags attached. You can still find them if you are lucky, but most of the time it will be really expensive, especially for sought-after jeans like the 47 or 66 models. Check Japanese vintage stores like BerBerJin or Marvin's. They have a pretty large selection.

    Yes, I'm a size 40 in most of my shirts. My chest measures roughly 39 in. If you didn't size up, you're good :-)

    The workshirts are awesome! I have the chambray version too and it's the only shirt from a Japanese brand that is long enough in sleeve length to fit me. I will probably buy the denim workshirt too because I love the fit so much.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Makes perfect sense. I live in a place with lots of mineral deposits (chalk) in the water and denim turns out like it was starched after a line dry

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    For raw unsanforized denim, one initial hot soak (as hot as my faucet can do) followed by a 30-40 degree Celsius wash in the maschine. After that, I wash my jeans pretty much the same way I wash other my clothing: machine washing at 30-40 deg Cels and line dry if the weather allows it. Denim always turns out crispy after a line dry, but machine drying makes them really soft (a little too soft for my liking, hence I prefer line drying)

    Land of the Lowrising Sun

    I'm in the same boat. Lanky and on the tall side. Most Japanese brands don't fit my frame, but there are a few exceptions: Warehouse's chambray shirts have really long sleeves in smaller sizes and the my Lot 700 (unfortunately I sized too small) had good proportions too. Porky's 66 jeans fits me really well, despite a lower rise. My absolute favorite for high-rise jeans so far: LVC 1947 I forgot: The Rite Stuff is on my radar too

    @erk no insights unfortunately, but I doubt we'll ever see anything Lee-branded from them again. Maybe the royalties were too high and they'd rather have the freedom to do their own thing? I don't really know and since WH transitioned to shorter inseams, I'm out of the game anyways.

    I've ordered from Warehouse before and I had a very good experience. The original poster didn't say they refused to take it back. Rather, he didn't want to pay for shipping it back to Japan (at his expense) and they offered him a discount on this pair instead. That's pretty obliging if you ask me!

    What after G-Star?

    @i_denim Warehouse has its own online store: http://www.ware-house.co.jp/?mode=grp&gid=762868 But there are also Western retailers like Blue in Green I can highly recommend Warehouse's online shop. Ordering was easy and they speak English. Their measurements are fairly accurate too. They ship EMS but you'll have to pay for shipping Can't help you with momotaro

    What after G-Star?

    To add to the confusion, the Sugar Cane 1947 jeans has three variations: the classic 1947 and the Type 2 and Type 3. The classic is high rise, but full leg. Type 2 is slim-straight and Type 3 is slim-tapered, but with a mid-rise. I have the Type 3 myself and I like it a lot
