Really nice pair of faded Champloo jeans on the Double Volante blog.
Link. Makes me wish the new pair wasn't so off the wall, I like the Camploo series jeans.

I have been comtemplating it, but haven't bought cos I recently bought the D1728. Depending on his review, I might just get it

Duh.. must have short term memory loss. I even asked him about them!:blush:

@beautiful_FrEaK they are the 107 fit right or even a touch slimmer?

I have no personal experience with the 107 but from measurements it seems the 1755 has more room in the top block and a little higher rise.

Review should be published soon on Mike's blog aka indigoshrimp

Did you use the dryer or is it just from subsequent washings? My 32 sd-101 are pretty snug in the waist but they were one wash and I actually gave them another wash myself but haven't worn them yet. They aren't hard to button up but I definitely don't want the waist getting any tighter.

those OKI-515 were done by Double Volante and turned out to be signifcantly tighter than the regular factory produced SDA jeans (103 cut).

My 1st Oki-515 were W34, when I used to wear 32-33. 

They were already tight, deadstock dry, so I sold them the minute I got hold of a W36.  They’re a bit loose on me, but I guesstimated it’ll be a better drape after a few washes.

had a W32 in the Take5 version (with custom change regarding the back pocket embroidery) and swapped it with a W33 of the standard version, which is now "a bit tight" - might change (if I can be bothered) to a W34 if I come across one...

Oki-815 in W33 had been much more comfortable from the start (cut & sizing) - doubt it will require further sizing-up in the future.

Hopefully the image isn't too big.. bought this 9776ID-U size S a couple of days ago in Tokyo. I'm usually S-M so found they are true to size and the quality is amazing.

103s bought from Blue in Green 11 years ago. Worn off and on maybe about a year and a half. 

They look darker IRL. patch got fucked on my first hot soak, water was way too hot hah.

How did you size on the suvin's @beautiful_FrEaK? True to size or a size down? Not much stretch like the rest of SDA's offerings or does it have more stretch than usual.

33 in the Flat Head 3012 and a 33 in SC Okinawas. Twas thinking of getting them in 32.

They are 1" bigger than tag size so that means 35" which is TTS for me. They shrank more than 2" but stretch out quite quickly. Size 32 sounds doable

Hey b-F, I’m trying to get an idea for my 1728 although I know shrinkage may be different for the two cottons, but maybe not too much difference.  Did you soak or wash, in hot, warm or cold water? 2” in the waist is more than I had anticipated! Thanks

A soak followed by a 40°C machine wash. My usual routine these days :) felt pretty right at the start but stretched out in a whim and still feels forgiving.

Thanks, b-F,  when I get to it, cold soak and maybe the ole 2x4! Or, lose a few pounds :)

it's funny that BF's recent picture is considered 'tight' - only a few years ago he would have been told to size down ad nauseum. looks good to me as is.

As someone on reddit was a bit disappointed by my review I added little more description of the feel of the denim:

Quote

The denim has a very soft and slick feeling from the start. As I wrote it got crunchier after the wash but that feeling was lost quite quickly. The denim doesn’t have a rough hand, it also feels smooth, slick, “oily” when you touch it. But not in a way sanforized denim feels. However the fabric opened up after the wash and you can feel more texture. The twill direction is easy to spot and somehow it reminds me of my RJB 14oz Zimbabwe cotton denim, although that denim is LHT whereas the Suvin Gold denim is RHT. Still you have a noticeable vertical drop on the denim. It’s advertised as 15oz and I’d say it also feels as thick but it wears like a lighter denim.
