looks like they make great stuff.  I'm really liking the deck jumper but fuck me, its $350 and the TCB version is $166.  

If its anything similar to the construction of the jeans... its worth it as far as Im concerned. Ive owned 3 or 4 pairs of TCB now, and I really think I would happily pay the extra money again and again for Dawson

dawson denim has been on my radar too for a long time.  i really liked what i saw on their website.  really like the full loose cuts of their denim pants.  dawson and bowery blue makers and tcb are the three brands for me.

Cross posted from the WAYWT thread 

but..

Ive got a good little handful of days in my Wide Tapers now and I am loving them! Washed them twice and got a small bit of shrink out of them (as expected) even though they were sanforized. Finally figured out how I want to keep my cuffs, and the weather is finally warming up enough to wear some better outfits

Everything is great!

Those look like they should be on my list. Even the regular straight looks like it's a real full cut. Does anyone have a 34 DD01 they could put measurements on?

Got the Dry British limited edition of those DD11 in W33 from a few years back - what do you want to know?

wearing them in the same size as my DD01 - more rise, more a 1950’s cut.

@Foxy2 anything, construction or the detail. Because I didnt see the construction detail photos on web.

over the past 2 pages I have posted a couple of pics from each model.

detailing should be roughly the same, both showcase the excellent level of skills and execution one can expect from Dawson Denim.

the DD01 feature a pre-shrunk, custom denim from Japan, while the DD11 feature un-shrunk Kuroki denim. both standard editions should feature their standard leather patch and pocket fabric - by now both should come with their "new" arcs.

Dawson describes the DD01 as a 1950's and early 1960's inspired cut and refers to the DD11 as 1940's Cowboy inspired.

Coming up on 9 months of owning my Wide Tapers.

Unfortunately I did not count the actual days in these but I know for sure that I did not wear jeans as much this year as other years. I feel like I spent my whole year in my work clothes and work boots, or at home in sweatpants with the new baby. 

But that is besides the point, I love these jeans so much. Me and my girlfriend are planning a trip to England in April, and I am hoping to pick up another Dawson pair or jacket while Im over there

My Wide Tapers fresh out of a wash. These will be coming up on a year soon (1 year of owning them, not nearly a year of actual wear). Proving to be incredibly slow faders but one of my favourite pairs ever regardless

The wide taper looks like a cool fit. Not sure I could get used to the "stone" color used for the threads though, something I would have to think about more. 

Anyone here own the wide leg fit? Not sure I could pull those ones off but they look great.

Anyone tried out (or even seen in-person) Dawson's black denim? Really tempted by their black DD010 Wide Tapered jeans, but would like to know a bit more about the materials before getting too excited…

I saw a photo a while back of Pokey Lafarge wearing the Black Wide Taper jean and they looked really great. Wasnt a super detailed photo of the jeans or anything, but they looked great with the rest of his kit

I'll see if i can set it up sometime - I'll call Scott and check if that's okay when im back? They just moved the workshop and have a baby, so not sure it'll be too convenient for me to drop in, but will ask. Sure they'll be cool though - they're very easy going.

If you do manage to make it down there I’d love to see some photos of their black jeans. Also can anyone see the size charts on their website? I can’t seem to.
