Warehouse 1001xx

Recommended Posts

Just got these last Tuesday from BiG- Warehouse 1001xx one wash. Great service from BiG, killer jeans. This is my first pair of Japanese denim, and certainly not my last. The deerskin patch couldn't even take one wash- it's pretty jerkified already. They are sewn to last. The thread used to attach the waist is like rope. It is used in other places, too. The denim is very nice, pretty hairy, with orange selvedge. I couldn't find much about Warehouse here, other than the Duck Diggers. Anyone know if the 1000xx is a different cut than the 1001xx? I know the cotton used is different. These fit great. I wish the leg opening was a bit smaller, but it's not a big deal. They are a size 38, which has come down to about a 35x33, but they have stretched to about a 36 in the waist, which is perfect- no belt required. Anybody have a pair that show some wear?

I have a pair of the 1000XX with some wear. I love them, the cut is perfect for me. As far as I can tell the only diff with the 1000 vs. 1001 is the cotton, the 1001XX is made with american cotton from the Memphis area. I think.

Hell no they won't be my last! Warehouse also makes a nice '66 style repro, but no one here in the States has them yet. I've worn these everyday- I figure I have a good 6 months.

DD- any pics of your 1000xxs?

I have been thinking about getting these for a while, so I have a couple questions:

1. I thought that they shrunk to the label size, but you say those are 38s that shrank to 35-36?

2. I prefer higher wasted cuts, what is the measurement on the front rise after shrinkage?

These do not shrink to tag size. They are tag size in their raw state. I'll measure the front rise tonight. They are a repro cut, so the rise is far from low.

Dick- the patch on the 1001xx's is deerskin, I think the 1000xx's have a cowhide patch. But yeah, I think they wash the crap out of them, as that is pretty good shrinkage for one wash. I'd be surprised if they shrink much more. Your 1000xx's look great- looks like you've been using them for work pants.

Been wearing these every day, except maybe 4 or 5 days total, with one cold wash after 5 weeks. Whiskers have started, as well as some thigh and wallet wear, and the inside of my right knee has some wear from where my leg rubs against my snare drum when I'm playing. I'll post pics after the next cold wash in a couple of weeks.

Better pics after the next wash, which will be in a week or so. I decided I'd treat these as jeans; what a concept. Seems like a lot of the "no wash for 1 year" jeans look artificial- too contrasty. These are starting to get some fades. They are super well dyed, as the slow wear/fading process proves. The wear on the coin pocket is from a knife.

nonetheless, your wallet and the jeans have a synergy that makes it look really good.

I only mentioned the wear on the coin pocket being from a knife to explain the wear- damn thing rubbed the indigo away. It's not to look like a badass.

As far as washing goes, I think every 3 weeks is a good way to go. Seems like that's how often I used to wash my jeans before SF.

hysteric- if you are in US, I'd suggest seeing if Blue in Green has your size. They carry one wash 1001xx's, and you'll be able to exchange if you don't get the size you want.
