Full Count Denim Thread

Recommended Posts

I've searched around and found that there isn't really a dedicated thread for this brand. Since I've got some decent wear on mine, I can finally show how they wear over time.

the rise is high, the fit is loose, but they are damn comfortable and the construction/cotton is top notch. i haven't felt any jeans better.... yet. warehouse?

model: 1101, 14oz zimbabwean cotton, 10 months

(stolen from evo thread)

My dear trusted travelling pants. Now retired from travelling. They've gone through many operations, someday I will take closeups of my (sometimes quite hideous) patching work.

The true color is something beetween first and last photo. I bought them years ago second hand and have put maybe 1 year worth of wear on them. Lot. 0106 (501xx cut) discontinued. Funny, but these jeans got me to superfuture, in a way.

how much does full count usually cost?

EDIT!

just checked the site and in case anyone else was wondering thsoe 1108's were running 23,904 yen which is about $196.

but now my question is how much would buying a pair run you total including service from japan? unless there is a us dealer somewhere, is there?

EDIT!

just checked blue in green and they are priced at 225 USD, the only one they carry is the 1108.

its amazing what a little bit of searching can do

damnit why did you have to make a thread like this! do you have a picture of 1101 on? I was just about to pull the trigger on some 1108's but now I'm thinking I might like 1101 better. damnit i'm all mixed up. I was having a hard time deciding between eternal 872's and 1108's (I know their different) but i decided on fullcounts, but I never really considered 1101's... :(

Actually, I'd rather say the 1653 is SKINNY, because that guy has the skinniest legs of any model I've seen yet and they're skinthight on his thighs.

probably the tightest jap jeans there are.

1108 slim, 1653 extremely skinny.

edit: http://www.fullcount.co.jp/onlineshop/283_1266.html

this site has some more descriptions of the 1653, but it describes it as a slim flare jean so im rather unsure right now. but its also priced at 16,800 JPY which is 137 USD

are there any US dealers that are currently selling the 1653?

preferably one in nyc, im going up there wednesday.

wow those look interesting, any more info on them? links?

(poor) Translation:

"With the same type as fixed turn 1108, the jeans which are made with the sweat denim of 14oz.

With the material which uses the sweat thread for the warp and replaces to the denim,

Although starting causing unique expression, the feeling which it will be secure it is and it is the denim.

The one where wearing with む thing it changes densely in the software, wears and pursues also feeling.

There is セルヴィッジ with the power loom and it is the one to which FULLCOUNT adhered."

Basically, 1108's with warp thread replaced by sweatpant material. I like them...nice to see a company that knows how to make decent denim experiment with new materials.

I don't recall seeing them last time I visited their website, so they must be fairly new...gotta love their complete disregard for Levi's lawsuits. :D

poking around rakuten, some nice and slim full count, 1653 model

somebody translate it! :)

interesting:

Super-slim jeans that have the same silhouette as #1616, the slimmest of all full count jeans.

They're almost straight, but it gets tighter around the knees and flare out just a bit around the hem. This cut will make your legs look longer.

Since they're using lower-priced denim than #1616, the price is very reasonable.

Thus, rivets, such as the ones around the coin pocket, are excluded.

But even though they' might not be at the same level as full count's standard zimbabwe cotton, the denim quality is still very high and you could enjoy nice color fades.

This is a great bargain for people not too concerned about elaborate details.

フルカウントのラインナップの中で一番細身の「#1616」と同じシルエットのスーパースリムのジーンズ。

ほとんどストレートですが、ヒザが絞られ、裾にかけてほんの少し広がっているので、脚が細く長く見える美脚ジーンズです。

「#1616」よりも廉価なデニム地を使用しているのでお値段もかなりお手ごろ!

コインポケットなどのリベット類も省略されています。

しかし、フルカウントの通常ラインナップのジンバブエコットンほどではないにしろ、クオリティーの高いデニム地なので、色落ちは十分に楽しめますよ!

凝ったディティールにこだわらないのならばこちらの方がお得!

very nice! but unfortunately i think i do care for the elaborate details... :(

looks like i'll have to fork out for something more expensive in their range. i love scrounging about rakuten. the variety (and the guesswork) is exciting.

yeah, i hear you. it seems like it's worth forking out another 30-40 bucks to get the details you want. especially, if you were planning to wear them for a year or so.

yup, sounds like it. they're still using the zimbabwe cottons, but without the selvage edges. i believe the denim's pretty similar, but if selvage matters to you, it might be tough.

the silouette's supposed to be exactly the same as 1108s.

      Hello,

      I only accept PayPal and I always ship via USPS priority mail with signature confirmation within one business day, but normally the same day. All prices include shipping and handling. No returns.

      I used the "Blue In Green" method for measuring the pant and jean.

      ALL items in this thread are Mint... never worn.

      Without further ado....

      Hysteric Glamour x Dickies

      These were part of a collaboration between the Japanese brand Hysteric Glamour and Dickies. These are a very skinny fit are a 65/35 poly/cotton blend (much more softer than American Dickes), and they have a back cinch. They are a size 32, but like I said before they are extremely skinny.

      Size 32

      Measurements:

      Waist: 16.75" / 42.55 cm

      Inseam: 31.5" / 80 cm

      Thigh: 11.5" / 29.20 cm

      Knee: 8.75" / 22.23 cm

      Front Rise: 8.5" / 21.60 cm

      Back Rise: 13" / 33 cm

      BRAND NEW
       
      Just got these 5507 tapered Skull's today, but when I ordered them I didn't take into account the fact that I'd lost some weight since I tried them on a few months ago.
       
      Brand New. Size 30, inseam hemmed to 34
       
      Measurements can be found  on the BiG webstore:
      http://blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=6005&category_id=&manufacturer_id=37&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=62
       
      Looking for a quick sale, so I'm willing to let these go for $300 shipped ($345+ retail in USA)

      for sale or trade! Fullcount #1614 raw and unsoaked, 31x34. Low rise, straight cut, 100% Zimb. cotton. Still with the tab and the Fullcount arcs.
      These should shrink around 1-1.5 inches in the waist, around 2 in the inseam and 0.5 all around. Measurements (in inches and BiG style):
      W: 36 (seems huge for a 31, but these are quite low-rised, and fit me, a 31 in Denime XX type and 32 in Eternal 811s just fine. Would shrink to probably a 35, or 34.5)
      Front rise: 9.5
      Back Rise: 13
      Thigh: 11.75
      Knee: 9.75
      Leg Opening: 9.25
      Inseam: 36
      Pardon the poor pictures.




      The above shot is the most accurate colour I could get, I guess.


      Can't really see, but pink selvedge!
      Selling for: USD 235, inclusive of shipping from Singapore Make a me a fair offer, and I will seriously consider!
      Drop me a pm with any questions! Thank you for looking.
