Does anyone have the m-51 fishtail? I'm trying to figure out why it's 300 less expensive than the RMC version, and for the life of my I have no idea. Thanks!

Is it 3x1 or 2x1? Sometimes those lightweight deck pants in denim are 2x1 twill which I find a stubborn fade (thinking TCB Seaman's Trouser here).

So after checking both Hinoya and Junky and the BR website I’m pretty sure they are 3x1(because otherwise it’s usually mentioned). But honestly I don’t really mind, they will fade in their own time and way.

No need to check websites; you can just look at the pants…

Yes I’m aware that’s technically possible but I can’t really trust my eyes to tell the difference. 
you’re most welcome to try though.

This is a 2x1 denim in case you hadn't figured it out yet.

Also, the retailer you bought it from will repair or replace that jean for you at no charge due to the defect.

I ordered them via a proxy service from Junky, so not sure about the repair/replace service. However it’s not a big thing for me to personally mend. 
 

thanks for the input

Ouch, that's rough. What does it seem like the failure point was? I've seen bar tacks cause issues when they're stitched too densely / with too thick of a thread, but usually that seems to have more of a negative effect on finer fabrics…I'd expect denim to be fine with tacking, more or less

(Yeah, not easy to tell from photos but that looks like a standard 2x1)

Two months. Two washes. Not much has changed yet. All in all I’m pretty disappointed about several things in these jeans. First and foremost being the fit. The seat area is very slim and is a lot less comfortable than I expected. It looks like other brands like warehouse and ym factory did the cut a bit different and made this area wider than Buzz did, but that’s only by looking at pictures. The other thing is that I had already re-sewed all three fly buttons and both front pockets tore at the bar tack area (perhaps from the slimness of the seat area?). The fabric however is quite interesting, especially being as light wight as it is, and functions quite well in the 30+ c summer we have here.

I am thinking about buying the Buzz Rickson 1945 chinos, does anyone have a pair of those here? I'm wondering how much they shrink after washing if at all? Cheers

BR 1942 chinos, new and old. The lighter pair feel like pajamas at this point but are beginning to fall apart.

^  Nice comparison pic.  Sounds like you like them enough to replace them!

I had a pair briefly in size 35, which fit great in the top block but very loose from the hips down.

They really don’t shrink much, even not after a hot wash. Anyways a lot less than denim. I’d say mine shrunk maybe 2% and most likely stretched back.

I picked up a pair last week. They are lovely. Originally went for the 1942 model but the waist in W33 was too small and the W34 too big.
Haven't washed them yet, but will try to remember to give an update on the shrinkage once I have.

Anybody have any experience with their “government issue” t shirts? What’s the shrinkage, fit and weight like?

having tried on the biggest size they make I can concur; these come up slim all round; a pity; I would love a pair... but no dice...

I’m sure there are plenty of options that look similar to that from other brands.

YM Factory comes to mind as a good alternative. ;)

So yes, as mentioned before me I too found several different versions that seem to be better. YM factory is indeed one. @woods_Mountain on Instagram also seems very interesting. 
 

im still on this pair though, I’ll try to “finish” it. At least until I can’t wear it anymore.
