Put a screwrdiver in the hole or a big pen and wiggle around. Or just button and unbutton as foten as possible until the hole gets wider.

What's the best way to buy from yahoo auctions for a US customer?  To me buyee seems pretty good but curious what y'all do.

Anyone tried RoToTo socks? I’m in the market for a pair of thicker cotton socks. I liked Red heel (the sock monkey sock) and my UES socks are nice. I’ve also tried another Japanese sock brand which I found in Tokyo but I can’t remember their name. They had a store close to Shibuya crossing. Thick, nice and cheap. Doesn’t seem to be available in the eu. What’s everyone’s preferences and why?

+5 for Tender socks—1 for each pair in my rotation. Of what I've tried, these are my favorites by far.

As to proxy services: Buyee is good if you don't plan to buy more than one item at a time from a given seller. Their option to not pay anything until you've won an auction / finalized a purchase is really convenient, and overall their whole setup seems pretty transparent. They are, however, unable to request that a seller combines shipping for multiple items, even if they're purchased on the same day. Because of this, I've been straying away from them, but haven't yet settled on a permanent alternative.

Chup over anonymosism for me but the sizing can be different between pairs. Rototo are great, like sweatshirts for your feet:D

Oh I just realised that I have a pair of Merz b Schwanen as well. They seem really nice but I’ve just worn them twice so can’t vouch for how they hold up in the long run. Thanks for all the answers so far!

If you’re looking for socks for a ‘long run’ I really think you should visit a specialist sports shop rather than look at fancy boot socks, etc.

What are your favorite online stores (selection, information, service) to buy Sugar Cane?

Earth Market was my introduction.  Best prices IMO for hard to find flannels and one of the few retailers of Indian Motorcycle clothing.

Is there an easy way to loosen the main button hole on a new pair? Never had that problem before but my Samurai are super hard to take off...

Had [that] on my 1st 710xx.

Soak the button hole before buttoning up & wear til dry.  U may have to repeat a few times.

Quick question:  Re: Boncoura 66 O/W

Are they shrink to tagged?! ... and does the denim stretch much?

Thanx!

@BrownMetallic Yes, they do shrink to tagged (or very close). My tag size 32 pair has been worn only a couple days and currently measures 32.5” at the waist. Couldn’t tell you if the denim stretches more easily than normal, but they certainly didn’t strike me as tight / hard-to-stretch.

Anyone else have the problem with measuring their best fitting jeans as size 32; but find that with a measuring tape my waist is actually 34-35?

Should I be measuring my waist tightly with the measuring tape as fat has some give ;(

Does a high rise jean = a smaller waist size compared to a low rise?

The rise has a huge impact on the waIst measurement. Very rarely do you have a pair that sits exactly where you measure.

Anyone know of a high rise, tapered, stretch fit for men? I recently bought some black stretch jeans from H&M and it's like all I wear now because they're so comfy.

Yes, but why do you need to measure your waist when you have a pair of ”best-fitting” jeans to measure instead?

I plan to purchase a new pair of jeans where the sizing seems a bit odd compared  to my usual size. Also the rises on both pairs are different.

Guys - how do you take good pictures of denim with a phone? Is the key to have as much (day) light as possible?

The key is to take it out of your pocket first B)

Do people find themselves incredibly fustrated wearing Japanese denim in hot weather. 

Especially when the crotch area gets sweaty and tight and you can’t fit your hands into them Momo front pockets.

Sounds like a fit related issue with very little to do with the origin of the denim.

I don't think the origin of the denim matters. The fit and weight should be weather appropriate. I am living in one of the hottest weather and I am sticking to 12-14 oz pairs and staying away from anything super tight.
