UES Denim

Recommended Posts

Wish they would do the 400t in some different denim. 18oz or something similar would be awesome in that cut.

Waiting for the restocks of the Indigo flannel.  I saw fades on their facebook page and looks really dope.  I hope they have a size 5

your fit is great. my natural waist floats around 36 and 37 inches. went with size 36, they were loose at the waist and huge everywhere else but the hem. gigantic thigh and hips. let's say I've discovered it's not the best cut for my body.

I had them tailored but I still don't wear them, partly because even if they fit well the ass is still very loose, partly beacuse the denim is not transpirant enough for my taste and for where I live. Pity as the denim fades beautifully.

Well you always learn something...now I I shy away from every single cut which has similar measurements... but I enjoy to see those Ues well worn by others nonetheless.

Which model are u referring to ?

400T, let's say the cut is not for me AND I've also sized up, probably a 34 would have worked differently.

these are actually still up for grabs in case anyone wants them. I would be happy to let them go for cheap.

400T is their slimmest cut right?

nope 400S it's much slimmer, but the rise is very low.

400T it's not a slim cut, it's a carrot fit, regular top, tapered.

For what it's worth, UES definitely seems to use "Japanese" sizing. That is, most cuts tend to be a bit slimmer than what's tagged. If you're down with a slimmer fit, they make some very good stuff. I'm a bit surprised they don't get more attention here actually.

Yet their shirts definitely feel like western sizing

I haven't handled their button downs but I actually have a few of their tees, and I can tell you they're very slim. I'm usually a medium but their size 3's (large) run slim on me. I haven't tried their outerwear either actually, but pants and tees are definitely on the small side.

Anybody have measurements for a worn/ washed pair of 400t in around a size 32?

I'm really digging the measurements, I'm just hoping the front rise doesn't shrink too much.

I recall my old pair being around 10.25" after a wash and stretching about another 0.25 with wear. Hope that helps.

Yeah that does help, thanks bod. It seems the rise is somewhat low as I suspected. Dang.

the rise on my 33s is mid verging on low.. about an inch below what I'd regard as 'high' (like SC Hawaii/Okinawa), and correspondingly needs an extra hole on the belt. Comfortable jeans; the best slim tapered I've had. I think there's an increase in measurements once you get past 32, though (apart from the waist, obviously)

Hey, 

 

received a couple garments from UES. Two new flannels among them to survive the winter.

I really like the colors of the heavy one. It will pair nicely with the Samurai 710 BH or usual indigo denim.

And the fit of the extra heavy one is better for western silhouette guys like me. It's a bit longer (2-3cm) than the heavy ones.

 

Black, heavy (14.5oz).

Question on the shirts sizing - does it follow the traditional Japanese sizing patterns where a L is a 3 or so, or is closer to the Flat Head/FJB sizing where a 42 is a Japanese L or a 3?

Going by the measurements of the shirts it should be the latter, by going by fit pics it should be the former, otherwise it seems too loose.

It is hard to give a definitive answer here as depending on fabric shirts can vary in sizing.

I'm normally a 42 in FH shirts but occasionally a 44. Likewise, I am sometimes a size 3 in UES but more often a size 4.

I'm a medium in western brands, large in SDA  42 in TFH, 40 in Momotaro but all my UES shirts are a 3. 2 heavy flannels and a denim shirt.

I just bought the Indigo Sashiko Wabash Selvedge Flannel in a size 5 from the UES store during my trip to Japan last week.  The overall fit is good.  Maybe just slightly tight at the bottom opening of the shirt.  The look and feel of this shirt is awesome.  I normally wear Iron Heart shirts in XXL to XXXL and Flathead buffalo check flannels in size 46.

I think the heavy weight UES flannels in size 5 would also work for me.

Wow, that's lovely. Can you show us what the shirt looks like?

Is it this shirt: https://www.japaneseselvagejeans.com/goods_en_jpy_818.html

 

Thanks.

Yes JDelage that is the shirt.  I was lucky, I walked into the UES store in Daikanyama and the only size of that shirt on the rack was the size 5 (XXL).  That was the size I was looking for so everything worked out.  Besides the UES online store, Rivet & Hide also sell this shirt.

I ordered this shirt the other day through Rivet & Hide - haven't seen it yet, but the pics sure do like nice!

Interesting that the larger sizes are not even listed on their website. It's a very nice shirt.

My chino and sweatshirt are apparently stuck at customs (although I don't even know where exactly). Hope they turn up at my place soon...

They finally turned up. Got hit with a ridiculous customs fee, but oh well, it was worth it. Both sweatshirt and chino are absolutely amazing!
