True, that's my own personal preference, but I love seeing what others come up with too. :)

One question please, do I need to size up for those CSF jeans? specially the m-41 model.

 

I know the jeans do shrink from tag size. Will it stretch back easily to raw waist size? 

i would advise you to size up , its not the waist you need to worry about because it will stretch quite a bit .... its the hips that are tight

not really sure what i would call the 1001sxx , when i wear mine it feels very straight from the hips down making me think it was influenced by the late 30's cuts ..... but really ????

These jeans look great. Ive been looking at them for a while now. Whats the best way to get ahold of them for a person living in Europe?

i think you could possibly be  36 in these but dont take my word on it , make sure to check measurement charts or email the shop ( hate giving sizing advise incase im wrong :)

If you are a 36 in TCB and SDA 101 I would say you are a 36 in Conner's as well...only your size 36 in Warehouse 1001 doesn't really fit in there (as Warehouse is usually bigger than tag size)

Yup, definitely getting a pair of Conners later this year. Would like to see some comparisons with the WWII denim.

Leaning towards the WWII pair right now since I don't have a true WWII repo and these look about as true as it gets!

Good lord, beautiful stuff Flash, and your fit pics always look spot on.

 

Which of Conners' catalogue have the slimmest taper?

Share this post

I'd hazard a guess and say that the 1947 would be the slimmest below the knee. As you can see from Flash's fit pic, they are still a very straight cut. Conners are reproducing pre-50s cuts so tapered fits aren't really part of the brand's offering.

Yup, definitely at the highest peaks of repro...For now, I'm saving the big denim cash for true vintage, but when I'm ready to break in another pair, these will be my go to (after the Ooe contest and after I break in my OAXX even more lol)...I'm liking these way more than Freewheelers to be honest!
