Full Count Denim Thread

Recommended Posts

Awesome!

Along with Warehouse, Full Count is a brand I'd love to own a denim jacket from but they just don't make them big enough.

It's a shame because I know these can get really crinkled and marbly, however I can't throw them in the drier or wash them often as I don't want them to shrink any further. The FC denim can stretch out fairly easily when wet but I only wash in cold water with this jacket. Considering a WH jacket next, or whoever has a WWII type one (no pocket flap etc) available at the time!

Very nice Aho! Full Count's type II is "the jacket that got away" from me - tried it on at Take 5, didn't buy it despite a perfect fit, and then Benny fell out with Miki and the jacket was no longer available! Still, I'm inspired to wear my 1101 today.

They look pretty clear to me... and good enough to see that you own a really nice pair of Fullcount. What's the wear time on those?

i think i got these about 6 years ago and been wearing them on and off. Don't read or lurk much in sufu anymore but will be back in a year or two with updates!

I got the same Problems with blurriness. When you use a decent cam and high Resolution the resizing makes them appear blurry. So far I don't know a Picture host that keeps the original Quality.

 

Oh, great pair btw. Thanks for making me regret not getting one. The only thing I somehow dislike on all FC are the arcs - they seem to fade away super easy.

On this pair I think it looks just great but in general I agree with you. They tend to disintegrate way earlier than other brands and also before the denim is faded enough (like you said)

I had my first arc stitch break on my 1108 this week, when they've barely had two months of wear! It is cool that FC uses so many types of thread in the construction of their jeans, but this is my only formal-looking pair, for cryin' out loud! Perhaps it is meant to make us feel as though we *can* do something to this denim before the six-month mark...

Got my 1101 early December and the arcs were basically destroyed within 8 weeks. Still some scraps hanging on but not much else. The inseam threads near the crotch also don't seem too durable and I have my first blowout after 4 months. Haven't had a pair go this quickly since I was downsizing x2 on naked and famous back in 2011. Admittedly the thighs are a bit tight owing to my fat ass.

I've racked up over a year's wear on my Fullcount. The arcs on the back pocket where I keep my phone have totally disintegrated but the one on my wallet pocket is still mostly there. It would be nice to keep them a little longer though not a big deal. Overall, I've found the construction to be completely fine and only had to repair the pocket stitching early on. I guess much of this is about how the cut fits on an individual.

i haven't had much issue with seams blowing out. I'm also a frequent washer and typically stay true to size which affects how the stitching wears

On further inspection the pocket I keep my wallet in is only slightly destroyed. The left pocket where I keep my phone is completely destroyed. I guess keeping those arcs intact may be asking too much

Putting some wear into some 1101s I got I think three years ago. It's weird, sometimes the cut feels and looks good and sometimes I absolutely hate it. The regular 13,7 oz denim is great and oh so comfy though, one of my favorites

Very nice chyllien, what is it about the cut that creates such a love/hate relationship?

I think it mostly is the strong taper and the generous top block that looks bad sometimes. Also the wide space between the back pockets which I know has been discussed before. And, erm, my own gut-and-arse measurements tend to move up and down. They definitely look better cuffed pretty high in my opinion. Should have had them hemmed before, now I wouldn't want to lose the roping  :)

Thanks, that sounds the perfect cut for me (back pockets aside). I may have to sell my 0105s to fund a purchase of some 1101s.

Got my 1101s on today as my 0105s are in the wash. Both cuts are just so good- I've not worn any of my other brands/cuts for a while now. Eyeing up the forthcoming WW2 cut in June, not that I need any more jeans...

I have a pair of 1101's on the way. For those of you that own a pair in about a 31 or so, are the back pockets spaced about the same distance apart as iron hearts? It's been kind of hard to tell from pictures alone.

I have a pair of 1101 in size 30 and also own a pair of Iron Heart Beatle Busters: I'd say yes, the pockets feel about the same distance apart. The placement of Fullcount pockets only begins to look slightly odd on larger sizes in my opinion.

 

Congrats on picking up a great pair of jeans.

      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.

      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.
