I think a 37" waist would be the sweet spot for me but then l probably wouldn't be able to put my hands in my front pockets so....

Cooked the patch on my WW2's after a boil wash. Don't mind one bit, looks authentic and helps pull the waistband in a bit too help fit wise. Much like a buckleback, but made of leather.

^Always knew those pieces of the internal pocket, above the pocket bag (the denim bits) would look good in time, due to the diagonal placement of that material in comparison to the leg panel. If you know what I mean.

SOLD!!!

Managed to snag a pair of 409XX M-54 from Foremost back in March, but unfortunately they aren’t quite right for me so I’m going to have to part with them, if anyone here is interested. Hot washed once, and worn about 10x, I paid $275 for them, just looking for $200 + shipping. The denim is 16oz deep indigo, with some slight nep to it. Constructed start to finish on 1950s & older machinery by Karou of the CSF 2nd Generation team. This version is the Foremost special version, which features 2 different thread colors on the rear seam, and 34” rigid inseam (vs 36” standard). Here’s a link to a video of Karou demonstrating all the techniques used, and vintage equipment - 

Tag size W 35, actually fits a 32-33 waist best. Here’s the measurements -

Waist - 16.5” 

Front Rise - 12.5” 

Back Rise - 16” 

Thigh (1” down from crotch) - 12.25” 

Inseam - 32” 

Hem - 8.5”

A perfect fit indeed. Damn, that back seam is beautifully terrible. I love it.

Those turned out really well! The coin pocket is also pretty wild but I agree, the back seam... :rolleyes:

Nice fit. The denim is so great.

What's your size on CSF Flash? This pair is W30 or W31 after shrunk?

No idea what they measure after shrinkage , they have had a few days wear 

I'm about a 31 these days and these conners are a 33 , the 47 denim shrinks like crazy though and has next to no give in it

Always jealous of a slimline waist/hip ratio combined with a stovepipe topblock!

 You really must stop influencing us with your great fits mate.

superb ww2 @beautiful_FrEaK! <3 i reckon the only thing that matches csf's stitching randomness (in a good way) at the moment is tender

I think it's getting time to call it quits on my CSF jeans... I've lost too much weight and I just don't like how they fit anymore. I've even hot washed and tumble dried three of my four pairs and they still don't fit right. I'm sure everyone loves the anti-fit, but mine are too anti-fit for me at this point. I'll have to list them for sale and then see what I can do about getting some new pairs. It's a real shame because the wait is much longer now than it used to be. The D-42s should still be on the way in a couple of months so at least those should fit properly. With the TCBs not working out, I don't have any jeans that fit the way I want right now which feels weird.

Think positive dude, you’ve lost weight and fortunately none of it is from your feet so you get to keep that fine boot collection! :biggrin:

I'm not sure what your collection consists of now dude but if I were you I wouldn't sell them all ..... far too easy to put a few lbs back on as you get older

How much do you want for your leather jackets?

Good point from Flash there Dude - plus personal tastes change... you might be grateful of an old, nicely worn, more spacious CSF friend in future instead of a few extra quid now.

Interested to hear why the TCB are not working out for you personally? I heard waist is a little less but will expand with wear; thighs are coming in less so understand that might be a problem for some.
