^ me no likey. Whats up with the sloppy selvage coming out of the bottom hem...but no selvage up the outseam...and the rise makes them look like girls' jeans.

Meh? :confused:

actually this brand looks really cool.

http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tasukijeans.com%2Fbrand7.html&langpair=ja%7Cen&hl=en&ie=UTF8

from what google translate tells me, they make jeans with a 17oz denim, and use 0 size thread so the stitching looks nice and thick ( well it is ). Also they make a black denim that is rope dyed ( i think.. ) and is designed to fade.

nice find chan..

These look really nice, I wish I could afford to take the plunge on them.

EDIT: ugh they're way too short, 33.6 :-\

That is even more blatant than Evis.

"honestly your honour, it's just a coincidence that Ueki's looks a little like Levi's with that font"

I don't think they will have survived the lawsuit....

I'm sure this brand has not been mentioned here before.

Here is an example of what they produce:

SGF006 Slim

However warp is firmly rope staining for the charity,

Steady sharp fall fashion is fun

Features.

If they make this in the TA70002 cut then i bet someone may be tempted to take the plunge ( but then no one has posted the black somets slims yet...). They also say the indigo denim is supposed to fall vertically. It does appear like structure denim does.

nice find chan..

Stiching is not 0 size but rather size 6. It says contruction threads are 0 sized. Just a clarification for you.

what does that mean?

lower number means bigger thread - so the stitch is more visable and vivid, and leaves pleasures of which one enjoys greatly, the characteristic is impressed upon!

It means that the stiching that you see uses size 6 thread and the threads on the inside that hold the jeans together are size 0.

As mentioned already the smaller the number the larger the thread. A special machine is needed to do 0 thread sewing which is why you don't see it often. The largest standard thread you will see is 6, most jeans use 8.

So we all know Sugarcane use sugarcane fibers in their jeans, John Bull contain 18% hemp, and Kohzo use all sorts of fibers.

Heres another

STUDIO ZERO at hinoya

60% cotton, 40% hemp

I like most of the details except the horrid back pocket design, ugh.... get the feeling everyones saying this more and more nowadays.

Anyhow, there they are.

hmm the denim isnt very slubby, really smooth. the closest thing that i can compare it to is a pair of SDA103s(raw) in terms of feel, kinda soft and smooth. 4 button fly a little tight right now just trying to break them in for a couple hours to see if they arent as stiff.

measurements are as follows tag 30

waist 30

front rise 11

back rise 13

thigh 11

knee 8.5

hem 8

inseam 33

going to start mixing these in with the contest jeans

Hi Chan,

I was just wondering if those jeans had hidden rivets on the rear pockets?

It seems like they're just bar-tacked.

Thanks buddy.

strike golds are supposed to be some of the darkest denim in the market right now. i'm curious to see those myself.

I tried searching Rakuten for other shops selling the brand but it seems only one retailer carries the brand.

Perhaps some other form of online retailer have them?

Pretty interesting details as well, donut buttons & hidden rivets and a not unreasonable price.

Nice details on those higuma jeans... good find.

I remember commenting on the strike gold jeans when they were posted here before. Did anyone buy these? Are they something to do with samurai? They look very nice, but seem to be pretty low rise, or is it just the picture?
