    Thanks Julian! That actually sounds great. I am looking for a simple and versatile watch for everyday wear, and this seems to be hit the spot for me.

    Hey @julian-wolf, would you mind sharing some pics/details/impressions of the new watch you got? I’m kind of interested in one as well, would like to hear your thoughts!

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Soaked them a second time. They dried crazy fast outside in the sun. Here’re the measurements for size 32x34: Waist: 31.5” Thigh (at crotch): 11.6” Knee (14” from crotch): 8.5” Hem: 7.8” Front rise: 11” Back rise: 15.2” Inseam: 31.5” Almost no change after a second soak, maybe 1/2” in inseam. I suspect it could shrink even more, but probably won’t given my gentle washing/drying routine. Leg twist is very prominent, as expected; however, there’s almost no hairiness to the fabric, wonder how that’ll change in the future. Also, I haven’t seen anyone complain about it, but front pocket openings are fairly small and pocket bags themselves quite shallow. I doubt it’s as bad as TFH, but certainly a bit annoying imo. Back pockets, on the other hand, are nicely spaced out and have great proportions in general. I wonder whether the excess of the fabric on the inside is intentional though.

    ^ I don’t have a washing machine, so I always hand wash my jeans and hang dry them afterwards. I basically gave them a hand wash now, without a detergent; I might do a second one later.

    Hey guys, I decided to get size 32 (34 length) and I’m happy I did so, 31 would have been too tight everywhere; 32 is great: waist fits well and everything else is slightly loose, should be perfect after a soak. Shoutout to Sapporo-base for great service and fast shipping! They also seem to be pretty much the only place to store the raw version, if it’s something you’re into; I really like buying raw whenever possible. Fabric is very stiff and crunchy, my thumb is still sore after butting the fly; denim is not hairy at all when it’s raw. Also very starchy, I love that smell. This does feel like an ultimate pair of jeans; very basic and minimalistic, in the best way possible; Love that slight curve to the back pockets, a nice touch. These are now drying after a ~20 min warm soak with agitation, I’ll post the measurements later for anyone curious.

    Thank you all for the feedback! I believe the thigh measurements work out for me, from what I’ve seen. The thigh 4” from crotch is ~10.3” for size 31 OW; when I measure a pair of my jeans that fit me well (I could even pinch 1/2-1” of fabric on the thigh), they’re 10.5”. I’ll definitely double check chart measurements on multiple sites though, just to be sure.

    Yeah, I’m afraid it’s gonna stretch too much in the waist if I size up to 32. My legs are fairly slim, thigh is ~20.5” at its thickest. For reference, I am size 30 in SC Okinawa, 31 in Samurai, 31 in Roy (could’ve gone for 30 easily), 30 in Oni. I also plan to get the raw version and soak/wash it myself for the first time.

    Should I get size 31 in 710 if I want ~31–31.5” waist after stretch? There have been a lot of comments about sizing already (I read the whole thread yesterday), but I just want to be safe. As a side note, I’m glad I finally noticed that Resolute 710 size charts I saw online had thigh measured at 4” below crotch, explaining the ridiculously slim (~10.3” for size 31) measurements, which means they should fit me!

    Warehouse

    @Broark ty, good to know! I might just try to get a pair from Warehouse directly instead of waiting for SE till June. 1001 inseam is actually an OK length for me. I kind of wish slim models were also at least ~31.5’ after soak.

    Warehouse

    It’s all good, we’re just having fun here. @Broark I remember you saying that Warehouse is not shipping to US at the moment, I wonder if you know whether other countries are affected as well, where can I get more info about it (shipping to Canada, in my case)?

    Warehouse

    @Broark Let me guess, you didn’t even bother checking that it’s not true. I’ve actually had this account for some time now, originally made it to ask for suggestions on This or That thread or whatever it’s called, and was planning to post some more but just didn’t. There are a few threads I check fairly recently though, this being one of them, as I’m looking to get a pair of Warehouse jeans. You can see me asking Kiya about them in SE thread. So no, I didn’t make it for this specific post, just reading what y’all wrote about Reddit here gave me a genuine laugh, so I decide to post the first think that came to mind, that’s it. Decided to continue with the joke if you will.

    Ah yes, those peasants over there on Reddit. Why can’t they just be as refined and sophisticated as people around here are, amirite? :D

    Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    What about Warehouse jeans, are they dropping soon also? I haven’t seen any updates anywhere.
  14. Yeah, I’m thinking of maybe picking one of each. But if I had to choose only one, it would be TFH for sure. More of a question which one of the two from each brand to pick. So far I’m leaning more toward D306 and then maybe 3501 LHT.
  15. So with SE having a pretty good discount for a bunch of stuff, I’m looking to get a pair or two of jeans from them. Having never owned TFH or SG denim, I’m currently looking at: Strike gold: 3105 Left Hand Twill Have never owned LHT before, this seems like a nice option for me. One downside, I would have prefer a bigger taper; 3109 fit is too slim though. OR SE x SG wavy Fit seems better, the denim also looks interesting; I like tonal arcs. Not so sure about how the denim looks when fades though. And with 33” inseam after soak I would not really be able to cuff, which is not that bad, but still. The Flat Head D306 Really like everything about this pair, their 3XXX denim seems really exciting to try. My only gripe is the arcs, which are not very good looking IMHO. But maybe they’ll grow on me, or I could always remove them later. OR BSP-AI Again, like everything about this pair, tonal arcs are very nice. I am a bit surprised that it is still in stock after ~2 years; and I could not find any faded pairs online, so I have no idea how it’s gonna develop. What do you say? Would appreciate any feedback!
