I emailed to inquire about purchasing a pair of the m47 and he said he hasn’t received an order. That language barrier. How do I go about acquiring a pair of these?

i remember reading through his instagram that he is stop receiving order mid last year and stop producing the S series this early year and he already got his apprentice to replace him, Kaoru. if im not mistaken

Only need one pair probably size 33 or 34 based on measurements preferably raw unsoaked.

@Radiohead89 here's a pair of M47's on Yahoo Auctions, size 36 but the waist measures ~33 in.
CSF run small and slim through the hips so it's good to size up by at least one or two.

I wish I had checked this thread earlier.

I’d be interested in a pair of M47, size 35 or 36.

anyone got a pair?

how does one order a pair of CSF

to clarify: do you just go based off the models they have on their website? are they current? or do you have to wait for a batch to be produced?

 i know that most have said instagram DM but based on availability or what model is available, i feel like there's not much info available to me based on that..

The old way to order was to just DM him on Instagram, but he announced last summer that he wasn't taking orders anymore and would just produce for his shop and for stockists. 

With that said, I would suggest that you still try to dm him. That is probably your best bet. He might be taking orders again without having said anything.

i don't mind buying from stockist if i can find any.. the one piece of rock website doesn't show any stockist whatsoever. any one knows what kinda stockist he has? any of the famous ones that we know?

tbh. i've been looking at a pair for awhile. the fact that i always hit a dead end has kinda pushed me back again and again.. might leave instagram DM as a last resort.

@Flash is selling a new pair - might be worth considering those?

The way you can tell the stockists is also through Instagram. He often posts who he is collaborating with and who is selling his jeans. It's not always the easiest to tell and I don't know how many of the stores sell overseas, but you can see at least some of the stockists that his jeans go to. You also might be able to DM him, the fortyniners account, or one of his staff (I can give you a list if you'd like) and ask for some stockists to buy from.

 

Unfortunately, at the end of the day, he seems to be having enough success selling his jeans just in Japan that he feels that he doesn't have to care about selling outside of it which is obviously a pain for all of us.

You can really see where Yoshiaki got the flared hips from on the 47 cut , these vintage 47 501xx have quite a distinct flare

Aye, it always makes me laugh when folks complain about hip flare on a 47 cut, if they don't want it why the flip do they buy them?

Its like buying a unicycle and complaing that it only has one wheel...

I've never minded a bit of flare in the hips , makes for a really comfortable fit

Me neither, it always settles down with wear... there was some dude in the LVC thread some months ago who bought a 47 cut and took them to the tailors to remove the hip flare.. you wouldn't buy a 70's cut and have the leg flare taperd??...if that's what you want, why not just buy a modern cut instead of vintage repro for goodness sake.

I see a lot of folk complaining about the flare found on the jeans close to my heart (emotionally) and arse (geographically) - it seems accuracy can’t be what they really want :huh:

Cut and treated the grass ( front and back ) , power hosed the path , washed the decking and made a start on sorting out Jack's play room .... This isolation stuff is driving me mad with boredom but better to keep our families safe 

So here is some pics comparing the s406xxx 46 and ww2

4 buttons on the ww2 compared to 5 on the 46 

20200322_160918

Plain rivets on the ww2 . Love that lightweight denim on the 46 pocket flap 

 

20200322_160803

Lower positioned tab on the ww2 , this seems a pretty regular thing on the s506xx and s501xx

Don't know if this was an intentional or unintentional mistake ( hard to tell with conners ;) ) but it seems the cinch on my 46 was sewn the wrong way round ???

@Flash ... and what’s lined up for Day 2? :laugh:

Very nice comparison pics - I wonder if someone else could confirm with their cinch?

On my S406xxx M-46 first half (pics further up this page) the cinch is sewn on the left hand side (like Flash’s top pic above)

Ordering a 47 from Konaka-San, but wanted to see how much I should ask him to hem it for me, so that the post-soak inseam length would be 75 cm ? From the size chart he sent me, the initial inseam would be 88 cm (for size 35). Many thanks!!

Is he accepting orders again? Curious how you got ahold of him... Back in January I sent a DM to him, the 49ers Shop, Karou, and Mari and a few of their other stockists trying to purchase a pair, and didn't get a single reply :/
