    A little bit of helping talking me into or out of these. How does the black seed denim breathe? Would I be punishing myself as much as I think wearing these in the Florida heat? Also, I've seen different sizing advice on the cut but given the high rise and large all around measurements is sizing down one or two safe even with the amount of shrinkage expected? I usually shoot for something between a 32-33 waist and was thinking a 32 with a hot wash or two would be good... although I've never had something with this kind of rise and I wouldn't want them falling down...

    You'll lose around 2 inches in the waist and inseam and around .3 inches elsewhere.

    I just picked up the 01 and I've got jeans for years but all this talk and love for the 02 cut has me intrigued. If it's an 02 I'd be in.

    Thanks! I’m really happy with the way they shrunk up with the wash. I was initially worried they would be much too large but sizing +2 as everyone recommended was the way to go.

    @Broark Has anyone heard anything concrete from Ooe as to when they would be willing to entertain a contest batch? I'm thinking about picking up the collab from Standard and Strange. How are people liking their OA01XX-1217's? I know there was a lot of talk when they came out but I haven't heard much on how they are coming along. Fit pics anyone? Is it still the consensus that sizing +2 is the way to go?

    Just a quick PSA that Standard and Strange received stock of their Ooe collab OA01XXS jeans.

    @julian-wolf I don’t have experience with the 206 henley but I recently bought the 215 tee and sized up. I usually wear a M/L and an XL was the perfect fit for me. On Merz’s official site, upon checkout, they recommend the same. “Please note that our sizes are slightly smaller. If in doubt, buy one size larger or order 2 sizes.”
  10. Thanks @mlwdp, Glad Hand looks cool. I had a pair of made in Japan Thom Browne’s I really liked but lost and I was thinking of trying out a different brand instead of simply replacing them with the same model.
  11. Thanks @kicks79. I’ll check out those brands as my starting points and keep doing a little research.
  12. I’m looking for some new sunglasses! What are some brands worth checking out?

    I didn’t notice them very scratchy/itchy even before the soak. I actually found them so thin and soft that I skipped the usual wash to leave in a bit more starch.

    33x32 800 c/l post hour long hot soak: waist - 32” front rise - 11” back rise - 14.75” thigh @ crotch - 12.5” thigh 1” down - 12” knee - 8.6” hem - 8.25” inseam - 31.25” I didn’t take measurements of my 33x32 14.5 oz denim 800s after their hot soak and cold wash but pre-soak one wash from warehouse they were: waist - 32.5” front rise - 11.8” back rise - 15.5” thigh @ crotch - 12.5” thigh 1” down - 12.1” knee - 8.9” hem - 8.5” inseam - 32.75” I didn’t notice much shrinkage with the 14.5 oz denim outside of the inseam shrinking up to tagged size and the waist getting a bit more snug. Overall the c/l blend is very nice. I’ve never seen a light denim have such depth of color and texture but I definitely prefer the 14.5oz denim. It’s nice to have something lighter though... c/l pictured.

    Thanks, that’s great news. I’ll update when they are in hand.
