thanks to self edge for the recommendation and the help at the store yesterday..

Strike Gold Slims Size 30

washed and dried before wearing

If you hemmed or cuffed these, they would be a perfect fit. Awesome +1

Quick sizing question. If I wear a size 29 in Skull 5010 comfortably, should a get a pair of 28 or 29 in slims? I'm only asking this because the 5010 are saforized while the Slims aren't. Many thanks!

You'd be a size 29 in Strike Gold jeans as well, they run a hair over tagged size and shrink to the tagged size after a soak.

I just checked with the store, my guys have called you to get your address but you haven't returned their voicemail they left you.

I had them look you up in our system and they just mailed them out to the address on file for your last order.

wow, thanks Kiya. I never got their call or voicemail, which is probly my bad cause I'm using an old ass phone and it doesn't work that well. I appreciate you looking into that and taking care of it.

After conversing with Kiya for a little bit, I went into SESF and tried these beauties on. Superhelpful and chill people. Those things aside, I was concerned about the roughness of the denim. Has anybody run into problem with it (i.e. roughing up your skin), or does the denim soften up with an initial soak and/or over time? Cheers.

I've been wearing mine for five days and already the back pocket area has softened up from sitting on them.

I'm amazed at this denim, after soaking it the denim becomes even more uneven in places and you can see the deep indigo hue instantly. It's very close to a denim type that Samurai used to produce four or five years ago. It was a super loose weave denim, very abrasive at first but softened up within a week.

without a doubt worth a closer look, the denim is beautiful. Mine are stiff as a board from sweat but in a week or so ill get around to giving them a soak and they will be like butter

first time poster here.

after practicing on a pair of nudies and lvcs for two years, i decided to get the sg1105 as my first japanese denim.

(btw, SE in LA is proof that God exists :D)

to commemorate the plunge, below are some obligatory pics.

post-soak, free-stand

I'm curious about the aging of the rivets, since they have the iron/copper combo. Anyone with a pair noticed any interesting evo?

Thanks, dude; they're starting to show some interesting character. I'll be looking forward to more updates on your pair over the next several months.

The SG1107 won't be of much interest to most people here, it's a bootcut jean.

heavyweights coming to Self Edge?!?! and any idea what the cut is??

They're doing a 24oz unsanforized jean, construction and details are very impressive, should be out in mid-November.
