Full Count Denim Thread

Recommended Posts

the old 0105 and 1101 were good fits for me, but the new measurements seem like they have an enormous back rise (like 18” for a w34)? i’ve gone down 2+ inches in waist so maybe those won’t give me crazy diaper butt, but wondering if there are any newer cuts?

junky style had a nice looking (exclusive?) actual-501-ish cut a year or two ago but only a 36 left.

today at the hottest day of the year in berlin, my 1937ish full counts 1301sr arrived (my 1st pair of FC and the most expensive one aswell but still a better price than the sugar cane version that came up few month ago) made from the so called super rough 15.5oz denim (that must have been 15.5oz when raw for it feels a lot heavier) 

these run huge with a massive hip flair... anyone got experience with this denim? I know FC have used allready for other cuts.

mine came onewashed and I hope for further shrinkage at the hips.

On the fence about these bad boys. 

the exact model number isn't listed as its a blue in green colab. so the patch just says blue in green. based on the fit, low-rise slim tapered, id guess its an 1109.

The denim is super soft and the closer i get to selling them the more i appreciate them. However, theyre so tight in the knees i cannot comfortably bike in them and thats one of my main methods of transportation. I had expected that the knees would stretch out by now, but that is yet to happen after about a month of daily wear.

anyone had experience with the blue in green colabs or any have info on them / advice on how to stretch the knees

They seem to have gone through a bit of a rebrand and launched some new styles. 

i purchased a pair of the 1122 tapered chino and was probably the worst pair of trousers I’ve had from Japan. 

Flimsy creasing cloth used, poorly constructed compared to other brands and they’ve got the fit all wrong, the bum was way too baggy it looked I was wearing a nappy underneath.

So £100 extra just for the arcs and tab at Bears in comparison to the price of their standard Full Count models! :wacko:

That was probably the whole reason to get rid off these details: to use them for "special editions"

Well they (being FC) were pretty quick to get lawyers involved that one time. :ph34r:

I've never had any interest in FC (or LVC) because of their lawsuit, but is the quality markedly different from WH or any similar brands? Just curious because their price for this even with the premium is on par with...anything selvedge with arcs and a red tab that I'm aware right now.

I’ve had 2 pairs of FC and the denim is fantastic. The overall quality is on par with the other repro brands.

One of my favourite fabrics for jeans, great quality construction. I have couple of shirts and a t from them also, all great stuff.

They are up there with all the brands discussed here.

I'm a fan, but they did themselves no favour with the legal  stuff with TCB.

never worn a pair, but from in-store handling; fabric seems 110% great...

but current cut etc. direction & brand management seems less so...

but un-ironically, this is a look I can get behind...

Yea I mean my general rule of thumb is I just don't bother with any brands or retailers that have done obviously dickish stuff in the industry or had a dickish attitude on the internet. It's a flawed approach, I'm sure there are nice people who don't do well with marketing, and not nice people who know how to play nice in their image - but there are too many other good options and not enough years in my life to do justice to all the garments to not just easily write brands/retailers off when stuff like this happens.

I like FC I have and I have no idea what they did with TCB, which jean I also have. My ignorance keeps me from being judgmental, quite happily... B)

I don't know every detail of the TCB saga and without trying to defend dickish behaviour theres always 2 sides to every story.

My experience/interaction with FC (email,  social media,  in the Tokyo store) has been good and I rate the brand (quality,  fabrics,  fits, range)  so I base my opinion on that.

I never had them. They were on yahoo auctions. Didn’t get any more info. I don’t think the cut was for me.

After looking at the embarrassingly large stack of denim in my closet, & swearing I'd never buy another pair of jeans, I broke down & did exactly that. I couldn't resist the temptation of the 30th anniversary model that Standard & Strange just got in stock. Based on the photos I thought they looked pretty special. I now have them & can say it's the stiffest denim I've ever encountered. I can see they'll need a soak before wearing.

Back in the late 90s a Japanese friend brought me a pair of FC which he considered the best Levi-esque repro at the time. They had a more varied catalogue back then. Work jeans with white stitching, a khaki type II jacket are a couple of cool things I remember. 

I'm sorry to hear there was aggro with TCB who I also like.

      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

      Hem: 7.75" / 19.69 cm

      Hip: 19" / 48.26 cm

      Full length: 40" / 101.6 cm

      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)
