Full Count Denim Thread

I think your tastes may be too niche for a mainstream forum like this.

I rather like the idea of wearing the shorts over a pair of tight jeans to give a rugby player effect. Has anyone tried that?

No, because I don't think anybody else is that mental.

The look - dark shorts over faded tight jeans.

I didn't realise this was a common look amongst rugby players - perhaps it's more of an off-field style rather than part of the official kit?

I'm still with the others though, go for it and don't forget to post your photos on here.

Well, nobody seemed to like the pics of my FC1904 shorts in size 30 last year, but in fact they have worked and worn well in the flesh and I have had no adverse comments. However, with the arrival of this year's batch, I have gone a size up to 32.5b18e41b11606_180607FullCount1904shorts.thumb.jpg.abe4b5365ac8e5c1fcaa3d316fdc5fa7.jpg

Here are the size 34 - with SDA shirt. They are much more roomy. Although I would normally wear the smaller sizes there are occasions for the larger size

Has anybody got any experience with the raw 1952 stretch jeans? How much do they stretch? Do you buy smaller than usual eg thigh size and allow the stretch to bring it up to fit you?

I think you need some leather cowboy chaps to complete the look.

Well, the R is for Rough and it uses and American/Aussie blend. This the first non-Zimbabwe denim they've made?

I’m pretty sure that Fullcount’s special run for Ed’s Signet store used a rougher Australian cotton.

the 2009/2010 WW2 model 1100-10 used 16.5oz Australian cotton and, I believe the China models used Chinese cotton before - there could more exceptions...

The texture of this new R denim reminds me a lot of the new G denim from SDA. Maybe this new denim is also woven on old Toyoda G3 looks? At least the yarns look to be spun similarly.

Putting my LVC 1937 cut-offs over my Full Count 1904 shorts has (accidentally) created the result I was looking for. The 1937s from 2003 were the 2nd pair I bought at that time with flaws which emerged in the denim after a short period of wear. The 1st pair I exchanged at American Classics (sadly with 1955s as the 1937s were no longer available) and this pair I sent to the Denim Doctor in Manchester to be converted into shorts. The length of the inseam was determined by the location of the flaw in the denim.

I’m not sure if it’s my screen or whether you’ve spilt something down the front :blush:

Strong rugby look though!
