Recommended Posts

I assume those jeans will be handled through Göteborg Manufaktur so they will ship from Sweden?!

Waiting, waiting, waiting. At least I can share some more info on the denim. Like I stated a couple of days ago its a 14 oz loomstate fabric. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project.

If you want to see a little of how the fabric ages Shingo has started using it for his latest Denimbridge cut. http://denimba.com/denimbase/2018/11/03/23478

Final sample is on its way from Japan. By the looks of it I can spoil all the details next week, stay tuned! 

Oh yeah, Shingo posted another fade sample of the fabric the other day: http://www.denimba.com/2019/05/13/24983 

That marbling is the bees knees!

Thanks for the update. Sadly, will probably be a no-go for me—I've had back luck with rear rises that low in the past. Looking forward to keeping up with the progress anyhow!

Looking good so far Bobbo - the 34 looks perfect for me. Contrary to julian, I've actually been looking for something with a lower back rise but with a front rise just like this. 

Would be a bit more tapered towards the hem than what I usually wear, but I'm happy with the decision to have them taper mostly below the knee!

Great numbers! :)

How much can we expect the waist to stretch from post wash?

IIRC Shingo-san uses a completey different way to measure the backrise. So if this chart is from him I would advise you take a look at his website to see how exactly he measures (I think he does it from the front. Can't explain but he has pictures on hsi site to show how it's done.

 

Edit: oh and to keep this a proper "interest check thread": given the Lee-inspired pockets you should have opted for a proper hair on hide patch ;):D

good point! scroll down this page and you'll get an idea http://denimbridge.jp/overseas
I assume measurements are post shrink/wash?
I am wary on the tapered hem width, 8 inches is within jegs territory for my standards and would mean I won't be able to wear these jeans with engineer boots. mmh... everything else sounds nice.

^it's post wash. With a little hem you might get to the 8". What size are you these days? :)

Do note I wear engineers with my Indigofera Buck that has 7.8 hem width

The fit would be quite comparable to indigofera buck, right?

I think the shaft of my White's it's much wider than average.  Anything smaller than 8.5 won't work. I may have to buy a new pair of engineers???

another good point re hem, if I factor in a 30' inseam and only a small cuff I may get away with it. My waist circumference is just shy of 35 inches and I wear a 34. I think I may need a 35 on these according to the measurements though.

Hmm, so I'm leaning towards a 38 given the smaller waist/ lower back rise. Assuming they're sized similarly to Ooe in going up two in the waist?
Like Volvo said, a little more tapered than I'm used to but I want to make these work.

^ Yeah, I'm a 35 in these just like my Ooe. 

When we're talking about the tapering it is pretty close to OA02 so they won't feel that tapered. The difference being ours taper more from the knee than Ooe's that starts their tapering earlier in the thighs.

Quite close but with more room in the thighs.

Size 35 it seems here B)

Will have to verify the waist as I haven't ever measured like that.
