no selvedge in the coin pocket as this is a 60's inspired cut so that's a period correct detail!

 

Correct! While the OA02XX's have a selvedge coin pocket these do not. But they also have back pocket rivets which I believe is not a period correct detail. Regardless I'm excited to see how it ages!

The leather they used for the patch is really nice, anyone have any idea what kind of leather it is?

Because the OA02XX as the name says uses most of the XX details (hidden rivets, selvedge coin pocket, etc.)

How much shrinkage did you guys get out of them?

Great updates everyone! I wonder if we all got different "cards"?

 

I have a sinking feeling mine will arrive sometime late next but alas, I shall be patient! Planning on giving them two trips through the wash and drier to get all the shrinkage out of the way. Really liking what I see so far at least!

Beautiful looking denim. I also love the XX details - especially the 50s style bell-shape to the back pockets (you also see it on Fullcount and Warehouse 1001). Shit, I'm jealous!

just got mine at lunch, in the tub now for a hot soak. Went TTS+2, I think the waist is going to be tight. I will need 3 inches of shrinkage in length. Have you guys been getting that?

I didn't measure my inseam before the wash but they are right around a 33 now. Assuming mine were really a 36 to begin with you should be fine.

I can confirm what Gnomes mentioned in the other thread, this denim pretty much shrinks down the same as the OA denim.

I've got my pair on now after some time hang drying then a bit of time in the dryer and they feel exactly like my OA02XX's.

1) Thank you aho and standard and strange!

2) super glad I went with a size 35. Size up by 2, people. Charts are pretty accurate.

3) aldsjflajfdkljsdkljdsf these are pretty damn good. The construction on these live up to the hype. Very clean and well done.

Fit great, love the brown weft. I think they will end up a little shorter than I usually wear them but I'm gonna try to wear them hard in the summer so that will be a good thing I thi nk.

One wash so far, think I'm going to be doing one more. That's been my stf process lately.

Also I somehow shipped these to my parents on accident and luckily they are home this week.

I would have been disappointed watching the weekend's excitement go by with no jeans!

So I've been thinking about what this denim reminded me of as far as color goes and I finally figured it out.

The special run of Fullcount denim that Ed ran with their wild cotton, here is a direct comparison:

Would definitely recommend the two wash method. The 2nd wash shrank them down a lot more. I waited till they were completely dry in between.

      And here we are everyone! It's been an amazing ride with this pair of jeans, and I'm sure you've all enjoyed yours as well. But unfortunately as all good things must, we are now at the end of the contest.
      The Rules: The poll will remain open until October 25th, 2017, at which point Neil and Jeremy at Standard & Strange will choose the winning pair out of the top three highest voted. That said, the earlier you post your pair, the higher the chances of you getting more votes! 
      The Prize: Our lucky winner will receive a brand new pair of Ooe jeans! The details of the pair are not yet public, however, it will be an OA01 cut exclusive to S&S.

      I want to thank everyone again for their participation and camaraderie during this contest. I'm excited to see how they all turned out after this past year and a half of wear, in which we've all undoubtedly become connected with these jeans and experienced so much. Thank you so much to Ryo and Hiro for willing to do such contests and limited runs for jeans we couldn't get otherwise; Thank you to Standard & Strange for sponsoring the contest and supporting the denim community with overall awesomeness; and Thank you all for your participation and viewership of this thread, which helps the denim community make the world a little bit more of an interesting place!

      Note: Please keep this thread devoid of comments until after polling ends as we'll want to focus only on pictures from the entrants!
