    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Anyone here have any experience with the 713? Should I stay with my 710 size or go down one size?

    I didn’t get anything noticeable after using low heat. High heat may get a little bit though, maybe like half an inch.

    Honestly I would go one wash and get the measurements from Pants Shop Ave on a pair to avoid any surprises. Yes I would go true to size. Especially if you plan on washing often.

    I went with my normal size of 34. My pair is one wash, and I have warm machine washed them and have ran them in the dryer on low heat. No shrinkage what so ever. Just the typical tightening up but that relaxes shortly after wearing them.

    Would prefer buttons. That puts me in a 713. Forgot about differing flys.

    I want a lower rise pair of Resolute but can’t decide if I should get the 712 or 713. Since the 710 is spot on the 713 may be a better choice for me. I’ll have to post a few photos of my 710s soon they are starting to age well.

    Do they make the left hand twill fabric in any other fits besides the XX-011? Those look good @space_cowboy.

    Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    Nice pick @cmr_reed I've looked at their type 2 a couple times.

    I am an environmental consultant in air quality. I climb smoke stacks and sample them using EPA Reference Methods to determine environmental compliance. Changing careers though, just enrolled to get my master's degree in occupational safety.

    I vote Bobby Lee as the new Self Edge model.

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    @ReverendGlasseye I am wearing one as I type this. The sleeves aren't all baggy, and aren't too tight either. Don't expect ultra high quality softness, but I like mine a lot. Fit is fairly relaxed, and a touch on the longer side when compared to Japanese brands and models.
  12. I'm looking for a high quality short sleeve sweatshirt. Like Strke Gold or Stevenson Overall level. I have a Todd Snyder, it's awesome but I wish it were softer. Anyone know of any?

    Dang I like those Full Nelsons. I have small hips and lower body in general bet I could make them work.

    How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    Nice collection @Broark. I really like the selvedge line on the Boncoura.

    Sapporo Base had all of them last I checked.

    I added the white 710's to my cart numerous times but couldn't pull the trigger. I think they look good but don't feel I would wear them enough.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Not the typical SuFu style but I like these. Little bit of heel slip, but they pull on with a nice thud and I think they are the right size. Cool looking box too.
  19. Nice I'm thinking I'll go with just hand washing it cold and hanging it to dry then.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Kind of goes both ways though. Wearing steel toes for work pretty much leaves me with no desire what so ever to wear a boot when not at a job site. Trying to get over that though.
  21. Went with From Japan. Rakuten was having a small sale too so that worked out. Should get them tomorrow, hope they fit. Fedex shipping was super expensive though. I have another question. Has anyone here ever hand washed a high density and high quality rayon shirt before? It's a Sun Surf. I have cold washed by hand a lower quality rayon shirt and had no problems. But I was nervous doing that with a high quality one and something going wrong.
