@vIGGiou riou fit pics please, really like the look of the patch and the colour of the denim, they look like warm climate jeans. I've taken advantage of the 30% discount to get a few pieces, I have another pair of utility dungaree denim that I need to soak.

hey Pedro. one shirt I will pair with, is sure Old Captain Co, which is our local brand, but in Hawaiian cut, not as in picture (ordered today ... :cool:)... another are my old Levi's and LVC summer shirts + tees and as shoes, my at this time favourite Wallabee's, Sanders and well trusted old Churche's ... will post some fit pics when the pair will settle down on my body... now they are in washing machine ... :rolleyes: yeah, they are like sixties cut... high rise and they are tapered to 8" in hem... what I remember from pair I owned in seventies, it was almost the same cut ...

I much prefer that^ shirt to the pants, you should a have teamed it up with the ice blu Ranch for full tilt Roger Moore styles..

They remind me of the faded Lois casual look from the 80s - we’ll wait for  @MJF9 to chime in though as I’m sure he has first hand experience of these, in fact he may even be in the picture below! :laugh2:

Is the lot 54 the widest legs of the bunch? Looking for something with a decent rise and a little wider leg than the lot 64s.

I think the 44 is the widest straight leg they offer

Classic photo Maynard. Lois jeans were great. I wore mine to death (and washed to death by my old dear) until they would no longer fasten up even using the lying down to flatten the stomach trick! I couldn’t recall ice blue Lois but I just found a new pair for sale (link below). King cords and Boogie cords were big down our way in a range of colours - mine were burgundy Boogie (a few quid cheaper than King) but pretty sure ice blue would have featured. 

Unconfirmed rumours are Christophe is chewing over a ‘Great Homer (Greatie) Market scallies’ or a broader ‘UK Casuals’ inspired collection featuring the above, Kickers, boss trainees, Adidas shoes, diamond Pringles etc etc.

Ah maybe Maynard was one of those ahem friendly West Ham fans who gave us a ‘warm’ 80s reception off the football special for a midweek cup game at Upton Park. Same clothing as the lads trying to get through the police escort :). Apologies for thread derailment - can see OO has moved it on now...

At the risk of making a sweeping generalisation, only an Italian could pull these off so successfully (and Roger Moore)! 

Edit: that’s a compliment to Mr Riou for the avoidance of doubt :blush:

Thanks: @Duke Mantee that post is so helpful and @vIGGiou riou, your great fit sells me on the 674 given a re-stock of that cut. I just don't think I'm sophisticate enough to pull off that color.

Recoon, 674 is nice fit if you are looking something of sixties/seventies/maybe eighties era ... I took them as summer jeans when I don't wear boots.. with boots that cut simply doesn't work... it works well with shoes, or sneakers ...

this year I banned to myself to buy new dark blue jeans (so white Resolute AA710 and Ice blu MF were allowed B))... don't want finish as Ruedi ... :rolleyes: but for next year is on my list MF Lot. 64, or 654....

Comparing to the right leg, actually looks like very little twist—maybe 10–15°? The jeans are just cut with front leg panels much narrower than rear leg panels

somewhere in some thread I wrote that at this year I'll not buy any standard dark blue jeans ... so I finished in last 2 months with white 10th anniversary Resolute, Orslow Fatigue pants, Ice Blu MSFC and today I ordered MSFC lot 64 Midnight denim. still 30% discounted ... :blush2: my wife counted my jeans and result was, that my amount is twice more higher then all of pants she owns... and she doesn't know about another third of collection in our summer apartment ... :tongue:
