I've only heard it mentioned, and not really critiqued. what are people's opinions on the quality and design of Denime brand jeans?

in my experience, the seam is easy to start in wearing denime's.

Denime's XX fabric is awesome!

The fit is on point and of course, the denim is superb.

Too bad I gave my pair away icon_smile_blush.gif

just thought i'd ask since i saw them available in a couple sizes on yoox. so far i'm getting that the denim is quality, the design is good, but the construction might be iffy?

no, the construction is top notch.

Maybe Ryu meant it seems easy to start wearing....

Seems, madam! Nay, it is; I know not 'seems'.

'Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother,

Nor customary suits of solemn black denime 66 jeans,

Nor windy suspiration of forced breath,

No, nor the fruitful river in the eye,

Nor the dejected 'haviour of the visage,

Together with all forms, modes, shows of grief,

That can denote me truly; these indeed seem,

For they are actions that a man might play:

But I have that within which passeth show;

These but the trappings and the suits of woe.

Using chain stitch, your train of jeans is fading wind.

i have the black denimes and the fabric seems really nice.

they absolutely stink however, after they were cold rinsed (I mean a chemical smell).

I think they are coated in resin or something

I just got the 15th Types (aka the c-point 501s) a little while ago. The XX is really nice 14oz fabric before washing and they fit like the Badou-R Jomons. I was bring cheap and got some 33s instead of 34s which was a mistake (I think the 34s cost 2k yen more), but other then that very pleased with them. I'm not sure if I'll never wash them, sell them, or just have a tight pair (which is not what I wanted).

Euro Denime made in Hong Kong?

I've not heard of that.

Denime do make jeans for export, where they change their red tab to a blue tab to avoid Levi's lawyers. However, those are made in Japan. Look for the Made In label inside one of the back pockets. It will also have the care instruction symbols, size, and 'Orizzonti' printed on the label.

I agree, the fabric of the XX's is excellent. Construction quality is also fine. I wouldn't judge an entire brand on one buttonhole.

How´s Denime´s non XX denim? The difference in price betwen the 66 type and the 66XX type is about 10.000 yen.. is it worth it, and if so why?

Also, Denime has a shop in Daikanyama, right?

what I don't like about Denime is that they lack some thing that other jeans in the same price range have. Their jeans that cost around 20k yen and under usually dont have rivets on the backpockets, have a paper patch instead of leather, and I think that they often do not have two-tone stitching.

I don't see any reason to buy from Denime instead of other big brands.

Thank you for the links. It was helpfull, however, on the two shots comparing the 66 and the XX they both looked good. But if i could understand correctly the XX holds it´s color better?

47 canes are a candidate as well. I guess it all comes down to fit in the end.

And hopefully I will be able to get them from japan, because I´m going there TOMORROW!!! :)

If you're going to Japan and have time to look at jeans, you'll get to see a lot!! Assuming of course you're in the right areas, but still...

I personally would purchase XX or 66XX over 66. But if pricing is an issue, 66 isn't bad at all!! Just a lesser quality cloth and indigo.

Are you sure you're not looking at counterfeits?

re 2 tone stitching and patches;

If denime is making a 1947 repro, 1966 , 1953, WWII model, etc.. They use the same color stitching Levi's used at that time, plus they'll use deer or cow leather if that's what Levi's used for the given model... Back pocket rivets too, etc.. Who are the "other big brands" you're referring to? imo Denime is one of the "big brands" and do a great job at what they do...

why would there be Denime 'counterfeits'? Is this a popular brand outside the US or something? my thought is that counterfeits usually pop up on something that is high in demand.

Are you serious? They're not very popular in US but VERY popular in Japan. A very good popular brand too!!

the 66 lacks the hidden rivets. I guess the 66 Levis didn't have them either. Shame.

there was a same thing at EVISU JEANS.

before distributed cane's 1947, denime 66 model is the most reasonable jeans !

so they would make counterfeits.... i think.

I have a question about Denime fits. I have a pair of Type 66 that fit perfectly. I'm pretty skinny, and these follow the contours of my body very nicely. I also have a pair of '47 Canes that don't fit so well. They're baggy and bow out around the thigh. Would Denime XX fit similarly to the '47 Canes or would they be a little more fitted through the thigh for skinny guys like me? Would they bow out like the Canes? I'd like something a little bit wider than the 66 fit, but not like the '47 Cane fit. Is Denime XX a good candidate?

Also, as an aside, is the fit on the 66XX exactly the same as the 66? Is it only the fabric that's different?

a bit same as 66 model i heard.

i read that kinds of article in this forum....

66xx means the model like 66model, using XX model denim fabiric.

so XX denim fabric is thicker than ordinary 66 model.

may be it would be tight.... i think. and denime's shop peron said to me

Hey griffin

I am also looking into buying a pair of Denime 66s in black. i was wondering what size do you wear in your 66s, and what size you wear in other jeans. Also did you get the non-wash or one wash.

thanks
