    The Strike Gold

    @Radiohead89 my first pair was Naked and Famous years ago, shortly after that I got a pair of the 5109 and it was such an experience. I was blown away at that fabric in person and the fade examples. I remember getting them in the mail and the excitement I felt soaking them. This was in 2015. I didn't even look at other jeans for over a year, I liked them so much (and still do, though they are a touch tight in the thigh now though). Only have needed minor repairs, but I don't wear them often now. It's a pair I could probably never get rid of and will always have. Agree completely on a 3009 type of fit, with the grey or white weft fabric (think 1105, 5105 for example). Have you tried their sweatshirts by chance? Another great staple.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Nice fit on those @ColdsnapBryan. I wish they would make a special run with the arcs and tabs again.

    @radfad2000 I have that for a size 34, if that would help you at all I can post some later just let me know.

    @Bobbo how were the front pocket openings on your pair?

    This seems like a smart fit. I am debating on sizing up two, instead of one. Are the most recent measurements one wash on the site?

    Watches and Denim

    Mine is similar to that but steel. Fantastic watches. I forget I'm wearing it most of the time.

    Size 35 it seems here Will have to verify the waist as I haven't ever measured like that.
  8. I also second Sugar Cane. TCB 50s are a great jean as well.

    The Flat Head

    No. My 3005 from SE is a 33. My 3005-S is a 34. The fit looks the same on either. I also have the 3005-A, size 33. The sizing is consistent for every pair and model.

    The Flat Head

    @jimmy_d I have both the 3005 and 3005-S. The arcs are the only differences as far as I can tell.

    The Flat Head

    My size 34 measures around 12.25-12.5 (from the crotch), those thigh measurements seem massive for the 3005.

    The Flat Head

    @jimmy_d Self Edge should be fairly accurate as of now. Heddels page likely has SE's measurements from year's ago (likely when they first stocked the 3005). Vintage paradise on Rakuten has the 3005-S, they will provide measurements (2nd also has this model but they do not provide measurements). I have both the 3005-S (size 34) and SE 3005 (size 33) if that would help you at all? The 3005 is a great fit, not too repro like yet comfortable with a true mid rise. It's a good stepping stone into more true repro like fits.

    Always liked the all orange thread used on the 3009 arcs.

    I can see some 60s by the end of this year happening. Nice fades @Hendsch.
