    You and me both If these were a 32 or a 33 I wouldn't've waited 10 minutes between seeing them and bidding
  2. Sugar Cane Denim

    BNWT lot 500 Edo Ai on Yahoo for a steal…looks like some fading at fold points due to prolonged storage, but probably nothing severe https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/t608684326
  3. Black jeans lovers!!!

    Both the SBG and overdyed flagship denim are really appealing, but the 634 and 888 are too slim and it doesn't seem likely that they'll ever do a 1955 in any nonstandard fabric

    ^^ I don't remember where the leg opening sat in terms of slimness, but a few months back I was pretty seriously considering the S&S Momotaro 0605-B for a black-on-black pair…until my thighs grew more. Really great-looking pair of jeans If you're on the slim end, Sugar Cane's double-black Type III jeans are pretty neat too I'm also still on the market for a pair of slim–straight black jeans with room in the thighs, in case anyone has any rec's, but am no longer getting my hopes very far up
  5. ^ My guess would be extra fabric around the hips / thighs, combined with jeans being worn higher than intended.

    Yeah, though: they shrank a lot.

    @JohnM: Machine-washed, air-dryed. The post-wash measurements were taken as soon as they dried—the waist feels like it's stretched out about an inch since then, after three or four days of wear, and I expect it'll give a little more in time. Once they feel like they've settled down I'll post up another set of measurements.
  9. Shoes that look better with age...

    How about Danner? I mostly think of them as hiking boots, but the classic Mountain Light looks good and wears well, and I'm pretty sure it comes with the classic Vibram lug sole that should do fine in city snow. edit: recommendation meant for all besides aho, of course : )

    Shaping up to be a beautiful summer day in Northern California… Really enjoying the cut of the R01 so far. Higher rise than I expected, but it works well with the style.

    I've never had pre-washed Cane's shrink significantly anywhere besides the inseam; I wouldn't bet on being able to cut down on "bagginess" with a wash. If you do try to, the bathtub's no way to do it: a hot wash and a trip through the dryer will be your best bet. That said, exchanging for a size down—or, better yet, a different cut with less room through the knees—is much more likely to result in a pair of jeans you're happy wearing.

    Just noticed the L.S.D. Co. stamp on the R01 rivets this morning. Love it.

    To be fair: in many schools and workplaces, neither would that revealing of a pair of jeans be tolerated
  15. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I think that was probably me. The full measurements for my pair (pre-wash -> post-wash, in inches) are waist: 34.75 -> 31.5 front rise: 13 -> 12.25 rear rise: 17.75 -> 16.5 thigh (0"): 13.75 -> 13 thigh (2"): 13 -> 12.25 inseam: 36 -> 32.5 Wash was done on "medium". Not sure what temp. that amounts to. edit: Tag size is 33.
