I think I’ve talked myself down from the ledge a bit as I already have two pairs of WH jeans using the same denim. They’re great but they’re very expensive and I’m enjoying my 1946 jeans a lot so far so I should just keep wearing them. Honestly i would prefer to pay that much for the jacket, but he said they are all sold. I think I’ve decided I’d rather put that money into a type I or II later this year from Konaka. But who knows, maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and feel differently. :D

@Broark Your first two lines are exactly what I've been thinking today! I had messaged Konaka about them as I also don't have any CSF but I didn't expect any in my size to be left over. I'm still breaking in my Warehouse DD1003 1945 and have the 1943 still in their canvas bag waiting their turn. £385+shipping+ customs fees then take them realistically to £500, which is crazy. I could easily get 2 more pairs of Warehouse DD for the same money. So tempting but I think just too expensive when I'm not short of denim at the mo. But then again, those amazing arcs...

Been wearing my type 1 a lot recently and the 47 denim really can take a beating , worn it for well over a year  ( when the weather is right ) and it's barely showing any wear

I just received my 1922 jeans the other day and in terms of design, they are already by favorite pair. Cinch back and exposed back pocket rivets? Yes, please!! Those are my two favorite design details in jeans. Other cool details of note include the suspender buttons that I will likely never use, the beautifully wonky stitching on the back pockets, and the back pockets themselves which have one of the most interesting and appealing back pocket shapes that I have ever seen. These are pre-soak pics and I'm not too fussed about taking post-soak ones yet because this pair utilizes the 1937 11oz denim which I have already photographed extensively. Overall, I am in love with these. The lighter denim is perfect in California and as I know from my 1937 jeans, extremely comfortable as well.

Thank you @beautiful_FrEaK, looking forward to post wash measurements as well.
Still focusing on my 1946 1st half jeans but I think the 47's will be my next pair down the road.

I expect at least 2" in the waist and 3" in the inseam. Haven't washed them yet. Trying to take some fit pics today in their raw state.
Funny thing is that my size 36 fit quite wel these days due to losing weight. Maybe the w38 turn out to be quite loose :D

I think you should have bought a 36 b_F, you're too svelte for those 38s nowadays judging by those measurements. Still, maybe you want 'em loose for the summer.

I already own the '47 model in size 36. When I bought them I was a tad bigger and had to stretch them out quite a bit (you can see the initial fit pics somewhere in 2016 I think). Also the fly was pulling open. I haven't worn them in a while and thought it would be best to just get a bigger size and shrink them down, so shrink-to-fit and not stretch-to-fit.
Now after I bought the size 38, I took them out of the box just to find they fit quite well :D 
But I still have to factor in that they are stretched out to the max and after a wash the situation will change. So the size 38 washed would probably fit right from the get go and maybe I will simply wash them hotter and more often to make them fit properly.

Maybe size 37 would be my ideal size but I'm not entirely sure Konaka-san offers that size. I hope I can take some pictures for comparison today.

the 38 will fit great after wash. the arse on the 36 will still attract too much of edmond's attention.

the 38s should be perfect after a soak. I'm in the same boat as you. A 37 would be ideal for the 1947 model, but I went with a 38 and am glad I took that over the 36.

Not related to CSF specifically, but I always found it strange that jeans, and most pants, are sized in 1" increments up to 34". Some models are made in 35" but it's rare. And I've never seen a 37". Perhaps it's a patterning throw back to when being above 34" was less common? And fellas generally wore their jeans fuller. if you happened to be larger than 34", 2" +/- was close enough?

To be honest, I still wonder why companies don't make a size 37. I've seen many comments and reflections about how a size between a 34 and 36 or between a 36 and 38 would be perfect. 35 and 37 should be more standard sizes.
