@ all / laxlife: what do you think of some leather item, that everybody in the contest could exclusively purchase? (If I understood hollowsleather right)?

I'm in for a belt.:)

I am down. I would personally rather have it for a belt though because I would actually need one. But I am interested to see what else is available.

I'm willing to make whatever people express the most interest in. Belt, bracelet, card case, wallet, S&M harness, whatever.

Ideally I'd like if there was interest in at least 10 of one item, that would make me feel good about offering a discount.

i personally think a custom bracelet would be the coolest of them all to sport for the contest

a bracelet could also be..... the fastest to make ? cheepest to buy ?

^that sounds really cool. I would be in for a belt as well, for the rest: depends on the item, I am pretty much settled with wallet&stuff.

Indeed, I just met Almostnice and he will join us. Stay tuned for more news...

well, 2ND offers a size 26 for the S0500XX so I hope we can also get that size.

About the sizes in general...please make up your mind guys and gals what size you need and write a private message to ME (that's important and less hassle for Max and me)

^ should we be using measurements from BiG? will that work fine for choosing our size?

If it helps anybody: My best fitting pair right now is the LVC 44, the Momotaro 0905 SP is a bit more comfy, but not loose. I will go for a tagged 34 in the S0500, so I size up from my Iron Heart, Momotaro and LVC size.

True waist is between 33 and 34.

If it helps:

The S0500 come close to the LVC 44 fit, IMO.

In addition the Samurai measurements, post-wash, if I'm not mistaken.

^Settles it for me...Going with a 31 (SUO from typical sizing), which hopefully translates to "loose" on me with my chicken legs. Also going to hem mega short to replicate my looser WH fits I'm used to lately...Vintage fades on Samurai!

Forgot to mention, I'd also be down for a leather bracelet of some sort...Or wallet?

EDIT: Is it October yet? ;)

does the texas cotton really shrink 2" in the waist? my 710s (lot 11) maybe shrank an inch and a half total over the entire duration of wearing them.

I think that depends on the Lot characteristics, that may change depending on the cotton quality, the temperature you soak etc.

B_f demonstrated me, that the Texas Cotton runs different depending on the cotton harvest (concerning e.g. slubbyniess, hairs etc.), so we don't know exact shrinking abilities.

I can only say, that the old S0500 (w34) was perfect for me and I hate too tight jeans, so to be safe, I size up one.

I'm going to go TTS on these (29) as the jump in the leg opening is about .5" from the 29->30, and I would rather have a skinnier cut for now.

As for leather, I am sorry but if it's a bracelet I won't be purchasing it as I just don't like wearing bracelets. But I am almost willing to buy anything else, maybe its possible to have 2 things?

On the pair I have, I sized down to 29 and they stretched fine. But I think I will go with a 30 for this batch.

^by any chance do you have a fit pic of the 29s riff? Curious to see if they'll turn out skinny or more towards a straight leg fit.

Well, I'd be down for a bracelet or card case. I feel pretty well set for belts.

what might look straight or slim on him might look different on you, unless the both of you are of exact same measurements. best way to get a better idea will be to have a look at measurements in your size..

I was under the impression the first 30 were set when I asked to be on the back up list. so if 28-30 are still free and its ok with everyone else, please add me

Well, I'm sure that out inseams will be different, but I believe our measurements are very similar. Even if we are different, I would like to see the same size since the difference between a 30 and 29 is pretty big.

So just went through the whole thread boys and girls and since this sounds really interesting and promising to me with all the boys and girls joining I think you can count me in as well...and even if I already own a pair of S0500XX I'm really interested to see if the ones from this newer lot will fade exactly the same way my lot.10 pair is doing atm ;)

Still waiting for a few more info's though (price,lot-#,shrinkage etc.)...

Oh and imo a nice bracelet would be dope,since i think that we all already rocking some great belts and wallets ;)
