Orslow

Recommended Posts

Strange that, I tried a pair of size 3 earlier this year and the inseam was about 31”

it's all good, perhaps my pair are an anomaly - i loved how i never needed to hem orslows, but i'm not gonna return them just because of the inseam.

Does anyone know of any stores that carry orslow in Tokyo?

Many, many Beams stores has some basic orSlow inventory, and some seasonal/special items. I would recommend checking out Classico – a cozy little shop with a good selection of orSlow and other Japanese brands, and some nice homeware & stationary. I also believe And Pheb could be worth checking out!

so i received an interesting reply from the retailer...

We have a feeling their may have been a little media activity around the brand last week as quite a few pairs of the 107”s were despatched and we are now currently oversold in this style. Our earlier deliveries of the 107 did have a shorter leg length. Our most recent deliveries (18 months) have been featuring a longer leg length. We have a delivery leaving Japan this coming week but cannot confirm leg length on these until they arrive. Purchasing by leg length is not an option with Orslow, and all styles are delivered in their standard leg length. I have a feeling that the Orslow provided measurements you included relate to these earlier deliveries.

I just measured our orSlow drop. The size 3 107 inseam clocks in at exactly 30.75" 

 

that's really weird. the only thing i can think of is i have a dud, or they do occasionally make pairs with a longer inseam for the western market? perhaps i should return these and order from you.

Yeah, it is strange. Maybe the guys in the factory made a mistake. As far as I know, they don't do different inseams for the export market.

anyhoo

total photo-dump

finding some oshkosh bibs from c.50s and with the orslow 50s chore sitting around in the interwebs

thought to pair them up...

below: some impressions, including:

orslow fabric and stitching (a combination of playful and faithful...) and fit (along with the 50s bibs)

and then some comparisons of the two garments bar-tack stitching and corner stitch detailing, fabric weave and hue and so on... (interestingly, for all orslow's simplicity, the fabric is still pretty torqued up compared to an earlier fabric...)

a long narrow fit, quite stiff and chunky denim considering its weight, a little neater than expected... a workwear power suit...

Great that the inseam comes around to 32" after all. I always thought Orslows were kinda short and checked them off of my list for that reason.

In other news, Levis has gone after orSlow for patent infrignment and they will no longer be able to attach a tab to the pockets of their denim jackets and jeans. The good news is that nothing else will change. Just from next season, there will be no more tabs. I guess that it makes the pairs we already own with a tab that extra bit special.

Levi’s ruins everything. Guess I better buy those 105’s I’ve been talking about forever, wonder if I could make a size 4 work...

And just impulsively bought a pair of fatigue pants from The Bureau Belfast, now to decide if I can wear a pair of 105’s in size 4 or not. :ph34r:

I always thought the white tab was quite pleasant, so that's a shame that they'll be disappearing. In my opinion, tabs only look nice in the “normal” position as opposed to anywhere else. I'm assuming this ban also includes placing it on the bottom right corner of the back pocket?

@bod where did you order the pair?

It's funny, the orslow measurements are all over the place.
Frans Boone store lists the inseam for a size 3 at 28.5" and I saw other shops listing this as well but the models wearing the jeans were women. Is there a Men and Women version of the 105 with different measurements? @kicks79

They are all the same.  Bureau measurements are accurate.  The 105 in the bigger sizes are quite loose.  Baggier than a Resolute 710 for example.  The 107 is a great cut but slim on the thighs which might not suit all.

@beautiful_FrEaK They are from End Clothing, I don't think I've seen accurate measurements anywhere, Bureau Belfast included. With regards to the tabs I noticed Frans Boone have already spotted them out on their product images. Is the tab ban for export models only?

Does anyone have actual worn measurements of the 105 size 4?
I've seen a lot of conflicting information, the measurements posted a few pages back that are direct from OrSlow lead me to believe that they would work, while other retailers list them as smaller. If the waist comes out to 35 and the thigh is closer to 13 I can pull them off.
I've given up on finding a pair in size 5 from JP with the proper tab placement, but I've found a size 4 and I'm wondering if I should give 'em a go.
Or I could just wait until my fatigues get here and I can see how those fit. :rolleyes:
