    It seems the original report on the release was worded wrong and the gx-t was always going to be kakishibu. Unfortunate, as I for one would have liked 710 cut in indigo-indigo. :/

    Excellent, thanks! Did you order through Okayamadenim? Did you ask them to confirm the measurements / did you find the charted measurements to ring true?

    How did you size for these, anything particular to pay attention to? Is the cut very carrot-y, the measurements suggest it could be but in what few fit-pics I have seen it doesn’t really look like that. Fit pics? Corlection has PBJ chinos on sale; the model is not 1148 and also not the latest 5-pocket one. It looks like I could be a 31 in those, yet 33 in 1148... Other than that the fit should be very similar, judging by the measurements.

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    The photo is not the best quality but it looks like it fits more like a shacket; check out Iron Heart’s IHSH-177 & IHSH-178 for something that might tickle your fancy.

    That seems likely, thanks. Do you remember what weight were the Element-denims? My Google-fu comes up short trying to dig up related facts.

    This piques my interest... while wondering about the relevance of having ”regular indigo warp with natural indigo dyed weft”.

    The 32oz Weird Guy is back in stock but I'd like to propose a moment of silence for these measurements: I'd love to hear from anyone who have copped a pair... Or thinking about it... I sure was looking forward to this but "painted on -fit" is not really how I roll.

    Looks like a boss combo, thanks for posting!

    +1 to this! Also, how did they measure, anything special to consider compared to other models in this cut?
  11. ^I think dressy & denim don't really jive but the ihsh-33 with tonal stitching comes as close as any and closer than most... Or perhaps the IHSH-218 non-fade superblack.

    @SparhawkJC did. Rakuten has fair few sellers stocking these... Having said that, Okayamadenim is a good choice as you might want to engage them in English, to confirm the measurements before shipping. Edit: Also, shipping from Okayamadenim is free, you’d be paying extra for that on Rakuten... Not that it’d be a huge additional expense considering these are 800€+/pair anyway.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    How about the S&S x Wesco Axe Breaker in horsehide:
  14. I remember the time when one could comfortably fit mobile phone into the coin pocket, keeping it separate from the random junk in the main pockets.
