I have the Ironalls jacket, PowerWear striped t-shirt and henley in size 44 - all comfortable fits.  I've got an Ironalls chambray (#2123001) coming in 17.  Based on your sizing above Duke, 17 should work but 17.5 may have been better.  Anyhow it's too late now - the boat with the parcel set sail a month ago now, so will get here... eventually!

I prefer my PowerWear to fit a bit looser to hide the flabby bits … that’s why I’m a 40 in jackets and 42 in tees. That Ironall shirt has a more relaxed fit and I’d think you might be ok with the 17

Slow 'n steady, about one month in on the 43s. Will check back every month or so of wear. Happy Freewheelin! :D

I’d guess 12-15, somewhere in that range.
So roughly once a month.

the 1943 on right are my work jeans. 
should I start the s601xx or the first run 1947 next? 

@shredwin_206 so you've faded the pair on the left already in 10 days?  Wouldn't put it past you. :P

I think I heard somewhere that the s601xx is now a permanent product? With how they fade, I sure hope so!

@Broark my bad. Didn’t read your post. Haha I just assumed those were 47s or 43s. 
I’m working on the warehouse jeans for work now ;)

Mine is similar, no red tab, pocket flap, but buttons are engraved (not plain)- I think, it's the 1930s model

Nice… is it worn in? Post some pics if you get chance.

I may be running into being told to read the thread but I’ll risk it and ask anyway - is there a pictorial comparison of the various jeans and jackets denim anywhere?

Considering that I had bought it nine years ago, not so much.
It's also a bit on the tight side now. I'll see, if I can get a picture in the next days.

Not really. There's Duke's overview of the different cuts of the jeans and there is a blog post in Chinese comparing two type 1s and a type 2.

Does anyone have the Jungle fatigues? 

https://speedwaysendai.com/collections/pants-shorts/products/2222006

just wondering what the inseam is like after a couple of washes? Trying to determine if they’ll end up too short? 

Just check with Seiichiro. I don’t think they’ll shrink in the wash but the inseam is only about 28 inches to begin - that’s even on the short side for my stumpy legs (I could wear them, but only with boots and the hem cinched)

Not any longer, I think @Double 0 Soul is more into velvet and corduroy these days.

It’s not over dyed but I am mightily impressed at how denim-like the fabric (and dyeing) is. Previous black denim I’ve owned always seemed a bit flat; hard to describe but I never thought much of it, or appreciated it.

Thanks Duke. 
im probably going to Cinch them in and wear them like a uncouth yob with trainers anyway so the shorter inseam might work. 
will make enquiries.
