Those 0105PH look great Nycsurfer. By Full Count standards they appear to fade quite quickly. Either that or you're giving them a proper caning...

Thanks, SM! In the beginning they felt like they were taking their time, but the blue has really started to come out in the past few weeks. I've also been washing them almost every 2 weeks so that makes a difference.

Covert denim - read the small print:

 

"Woven with Indigo Dyed #7 Warp Yarn, Heather Indigo #10 and #16 Silk Weft Yarn. Expected shrinkage is 4~7% with machine washing and drying"

it looks like a nice deal, if you like that denim and if you can cope with that cut (front and back rise are really low) go for it.

I'd rather go with their standard denim but that's a matter of personal preference.

I thought this post from p3 was worthy of a quote:

For anyone interested in this brand in particular and Japanese denim history in general below is the text from a recent post on my blog.The FULLCOUNT Grand SlamFirst of all FULLCOUNT is a fashion brand complete with fashion shows and photoshoots. Now let me say they make some fine jeans that would make any denim purist wake up sweating indigo. Part of it comes from the fact that founder-owner Mikiharu Tsujita (humbly self-introduced as Miki) is well versed in denim.We sat down for tea last week in New York where I showed him the book, "History of Japan Jeans." While flipping through it he points out various veterans he's worked with (some he calls masters) over the years. He begins to tell stories. The one I found especially interesting is about the company he forged with sweat and tears.FULLCOUNT s one of the Osaka 5, a group of five pioneer brands (Studio D'Artisan, Denime, Evisu, Warehouse, and FULLCOUNT) founded in Osaka for the pursuit of the best denim as seen through their respective lenses.Tsujita recounts his younger days in the 80’s working in the famous vintage shop Lapine and traveling in the US with co-worker Hidehiko Yamane (of Evisu fame) to hunt for vintage denim garments. At the time vintage Levi's and the likes were already exchanging hands (American to Japanese) at hefty sums and it was difficult finding enough right pieces at the right prices to stock popular "used stores" like Lapine across Japan.As a result in '89 Tsujita and Yamane launched the brand Rodeo backed by Lapine's owner. It offered raw denim with details that nodded homage to the vintage jeans they loved. Rodeo was famously different from existing brands like Studio D'Artisan and Denime, who pushed similar products but were supported by strong financial backing. It was known as a homebrewed label that distributed in vintage stores for likeminded individuals.But in 1991 the ambitious duo splintered off and formed Evis (later renamed Evisu). I could not help but ask him to talk about the rumors of Evisu having purchased a vintage American-made shuttle loom (having heard this myth repeated as legend twice the prior day was strong motivation). It is reassuring to hear that the rumors are indeed not true. Evisu began making jeans using denim made on Japanese-built Toyoda looms.Due to differences in brand direction (Evisu is now known for its colorful handpainted logo's that cover the backpockets; its mascot is the god of money) Tsujita sets off on his own purist's path. He stares off to the side with a distant look as he recalls what went through his mind at the time. Without substantial funding he knew that his next move would either make or break him. It was this feeling of being up at bat with 3 balls and 2 strikes that led him to name his lifework FULLCOUNT.Since making that swing FULLCOUNT has become a popular Japanese brand offering both knits and wovens for men and women. Jeans from the line have features like natural indigo, Zimbabwean cotton, hidden rivets, back buckles, 100% cotton threads (for vintage purists) and of course selvage. But it is the essence of the vintage jeans that he wore as a youth that he tries to capture. In describing the FULLCOUNT denim he mentions soft and comfortable as being the most important points. As he models the jeans he's broken-in over 5 years he tells me this is point when the jeans are the most comfortable. He emphasizes the belief that fashion trends change but comfort does not. Their brand concept states "FULLCOUNT is not influenced by fast-moving fashion trend."recent+135.jpgCaption: Miki in his 5-year FULLCOUNT jeans standing next to his collection.Yet he insists FULLCOUNT is a fashion brand. His customers, while appreciating the vintage details, use his products to primarily fulfill fashion needs. This contradiction leaves me a bit perplexed. But after only half a minute I decided I don’t need to fully understand it. Balances and struggles between ideas contribute to denim’s character. You can analyze it all day long (and we do sometimes) but in the end all you need to do is wear it to get it.recent+138.jpgrecent+136.jpgCaption: The jeans ripped on his recent travels; New York is a tough city.recent+137.jpgrecent+141.jpgWe talk about his arc designs post and pre Levi's cease-and-desist letter (sized like a book but doesn't read like one).recent+142.jpgrecent+139.jpgFULLCOUNT WebsiteSpecial thanks to Kotaro TanakaSpecial thanks to Lat40N

Fatty McGoo here, thinking of getting a pair of the 1101's since I can seem to fit my sausage legs into the 1108's in my size comfortably anymore. 32 in the 1108ow is too tight, going by measurements online and previous feedback here sounds like I'd be safe w a 31 or even 30 in the 1101. 

Anyone care to confirm?

My size 30 (o/w) 1101 measure about 12.25'' in the upper thigh, BIG style after a whole bunch of washes. Certainly a roomier cut in the thigh than the 1108. The waist stretches out to at least 32'' if pushed.

Random 0105 love

Jeans look good! And what kind of shoes are those? They look kind of like New Balance Pro Courts or Nike All courts, but look great from top down view.

I find them a bit wide at first, used to busenitz. But yes they are nice

Just threw my FC type 1 in the wash, first time it's hit water (other than being purchased one wash) in the over year I've owned and wore it. Crossing my fingers they won't shrink but I know it's coming :/ 

 

Will post update pictures when it dries!

I'm really atracted to FC at the Moment. Not sure where this will lead, but there are so many great Options in the 13,7 oz range that would be perfect for summer. Might sell my 710 DMO because of that.

I think I'm going to have another go at sizing a pair of 1101's correctly, I reckon that if they fit well in the waist and thighs raw then I'll be good. Any comments?

Did you run into problems with the waist stretching out too much before? FC aren't jeans I would want to wear tight, because I believe the denim and cuts lend themselves to comfort. However, no one wants to be swimming in a pair that are too big in the waist immediately after a wash. 

 

I sized my 1101 (OW version) one tagged size down from usual and though they have stretched a bit in the waist, there has not been a massive change over time because there is not a push on the waist band to make that happen.

      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

      Waist: 16.75" / 42.55 cm

      Inseam: 31.5" / 80 cm
