UES Denim

Rivet and Hide ship to US and I believe it's free shipping. There charts are spot on. It's where I got my first one.

@Spiraltoy great pair. What is it about the pocket bags then (had to ask)? 

Well, firstly they’re a good size but I’m guessing they’re tightly weaved long staple cotton or something. They just don’t break.

Broke out my old UES 400T for a change. Very comfy pair and great cut. Bought the 400ST recently and I'm curious how they will fit (a tad slimmer and stronger taper, very short back rise though...)

Those 400ST are top of my list to try on in Japan,  everything I read about UES jeans sounds positive. Impressed with their shirts so looking forward to trying the jeans. The stores nice as well, worth a visit

As TTS for me (35) doesn't exist I took the same size as my 400T, hoping the posted measurements from UES were correct. So these are also size 34. Slim fit but thanks to the hip area being generous it's not as noticeable. The low back rise surprised me, 14.25" raw. 

I soaked them and will report back once they are dry

Is it the same brown-ish weft fabric as the 400t?

They are pretty close but they don't list the back rise and that one is pretty low.

just curious @beautiful_FrEaK how many pairs of jeans do you have in rotation?

I don't have a serious rotation but the jeans that are currently not on my rack in reach each morning are the UES, Denime 66XX and the Resolute. Basically the most recent jeans...a pretty bad way to generate fades :D

How many pairs can one work on at one time, if trying to get good fades?

Oh that stinks. I was excited about my PBJ and then trying to order a pair of flat heads. I guess I will stall the flat heads for a few months while I work on PBJ.

Dude you need at least 6 months of daily wear... jeans don’t fade overnight.

Just buy them and wear them in rotation over a longer period... slower fades but you get a bit of variety if that's what you're looking for... the cuts are enduring after all...

Good write-up b_F, I’ve always been intrigued/tempted by UES and this seems to confirm my understanding that they are a good company with excellent products. Maybe one day...

UES400T - unknown number of wears since 2015, and at least 6+ washes. These are ridiculously comfortable, but have become a bit baggy, so they're now my at home lazy jeans. The denim is so soft that they don't really hold creases much anymore. So, where I once had some nice contrast to the whiskers, they've actually muted a bit with more wear. 

Thinking of trying out the UES400ST next, my only complaint with the 400T was they are a bit more roomy than I'd like.

Is the waist big on 400t? Both Rivet and Hide and Ues webshop have a fairly large waist measurement on size 34. I want the waist to become around 34-35 after wash and some wear. I'm afraid that if I order size 33 they will be to small..

I found my 400ST came up smaller than the measurements on the UES website. I ended up getting 32 instead of the 31 I wear in every other brand

Thanks @Geeman I'm leaning towards 34 in 400t
