The Strike Gold

2,420 posts in this topic

Has anyone else seen holes forming the crotch area on their Strike Gold SG 2109's? I had mine for over a year with two soaks and two cold washes and I'm already seeing a hole form in the crotch. I bought these in my normal size with no downsizing. These seem a little fragile for $400 jean. I love the look and fit just wish they would hold up a little better. Has anyone else seen this?

I'd say that's pretty amazing for every day wear for over a year. Most people form crotch holes in less than one year in ANY jean.

Nope, the designs didn't meet our spec while the t-shirts themselves were better than any t-shirt we've ever carried or seen. I have no idea how these two do it but they came on the scene three years ago and did those jeans, then did loopwheeled sweaters and hoodies better than Buzz Rickson and Real McCoy's, and now are doing loopwheeled tees which are heavier yet softer than anything i've seen in Japan.

hahaha, then i'd look silly even when i'm not wearing the sweatshirt, and i'd have to gain like 10 inches or something in the bicep

i think you can see a little bit what i'm talking about in the model from the SE page...a little too much fabric on the bicep

Personally, i think the arms fit fine. it's the combination of the baggy arms and fitted chest that looks a little off. regardless, i'll definitely have to check these out when i'm down in san fran later this summer

BTW, i have one of their tees, size M, but it's too tight for me, maybe you guys have some interests in it.

Thank you

Hot damn! Now I just need to psych myself up to the point where paying 200 for a tshirt (just guessing how much) seems like a good idea.

My 2105's have warped my brain.

They're gonna be the same price or cheaper than Flat Head tees i think.

I wish that was the case but I wear these with two other pairs in rotation. So my Strike Golds have about 150 days on them. It looks like no one else is having similar results so no big deal. Still love the look of the 2109's

I am really looking forward to seeing these SG loopwheeled tees and how them compare to TFH and IH loopwheeled tees.

Kiya, do you plan to restock the navy SG hoodies anytime soon?

Anyone have any experience with how much the 2109s shrink? I just got a pair in with a 32 waist. There is about a 3" gap between my waist and the jean. I'm a bit afraid that if I go down to a 31 that my thighs might not fit, but this fit in the top block is way too loose. Looks awful when I wear a belt with it because the fabric is buckling.

s2109 waist shrink very little, any shrinkage from soak/wash will undone from wear.

I've been scoping out a pair of SG1101 and SG1103 for quite a while but, nowhere can I find measurements for either. I'm a true 31, I always buy 32 for a slightly looser fit, unless the denim is cut loose, so I'd probably be looking for measurements for either 31 or 32.

Also, anyone shop from Okayama Denim? They still have SG1000 series in stock.

^on the 14oz, the denim stretches quite a bit @waistband. 'need to size down. 'thighs should be fine since they're regular & relax straights.

lol Thighs should be fine, eee I aint the skinniest guy around. A "regular straight" in a sz32 has only 10.5" thighs (not sure if pre-soak measurements or not), and the relaxed straight has a very, very small rise.

Any info on the backrise for sizes 31, 32, or 33?

Looks like I might have to pass on Strike Gold's. What a shame.

as indicated on each model's chart, "washed size chart".

front rise= approx 11.25 post wash on a W32 is "very, very small..." for you?

also, you have to put into consideration, it's from a japanese size chart__ not the BiG-style "from crotch" thigh measurement.

Yes, 2103 is exist. it has the same silhouette with 1103, but the shrinkage after soaking will make them different a little as 11xx fabric will shrink more than 21xx series..

I bought a pair of SG 1103 and they did not shrink nearly as much as every was saying they would. 0.5' in the knee, and rises, but thats normal for most denim. The thigh shrunk about 0.5 as well and definitely were not too slim fitting, despite me usually having problems with thighs being too slim and I went TTS.

To be honest, I wish I sized down 1. I'll post fitpics when i get a chance. Also on sale in the marketplace...

      View Advert Oni X Tanuki 20 oz Secret Denim Ultra Slim One Wash
      Tagged 32 but I'd recommend for someone who usually wears a 30 unless you got some serious twig legs.
      Purchased brand new from Denimio + hemmed, they were tight as heck on my thighs. Just tried on, then went back into the packaging. Can't return since these were hemmed. My loss, your gain. 
      Fabric is definitely Oni's, extremely hairy and should break in nicely. 20 oz but surprisingly feels lighter and rougher than my other 20oz secret denim, almost like a 16-17 oz. Blue and red selvedge ID, and co branded. No arcs.
      Chainstitch hemmed from original length, 4 cm off
      Measurements:
      Waist: 42 cm / 16.5 inch
      Front rise 24.5 cm / 9.6 inch
      Thigh: 28 cm / 11 inch
      Hem: 16.5 cm / 6.5 inch
      Inseam: 80 cm / 31.5 inch
      Note that these are one wash, minimal to no shrinking is expected but I'd suspect the denim would loosen up a bit after breaking in going by my other oni denims. Price includes shipping from Australia and PayPal fees.

      As the current DWC has drawn to a close there have been the inevitable questions from all over the cyberspace, which I occupy, as to whether there will be another contest for 2017 – 2019. Today I am pleased to make the announcement that there will be, and confirm a few details about what to expect.
       
      The theme of the latest DWC will be “back to basics”, meaning we’re going to scrap everything from the previous contests and make this one as accessible to everyone as it possibly can be, this means…
       
      Any brand or style of jeans can enter. There will be no weight categories, just one contest fits all. All entered jeans must have only 30 wears or less on day 1 of the contest. Speaking of day 1, the contest will begin on 01/11/17 and run for the standard 24 months to 01/11/19. The contest will be purely forum based, on both Superfuture and the Iron Heart forum only. Registration is open now, and will close 31/10/17. Registration fee for the contest will be a flat $20, payable via Paypal to denimworldchampionship@gmail.com . Upon registration you will be issued an entry number to validate your participation. The entry fee will be used to purchase prizes from our favourite brands and retailers for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Prizes will be announced as soon as possible after registration is complete. Once again we have something quite special planned with our friends at Iron Heart for contest jeans. Our judging panel is currently TBD.  
      So that is all for now, we’re looking forward to setting off on another denim journey with you all again soon.
       
      Regards,
