This was my first TSG attempt. I wish the cut had worked. My situation may have been a mistake. Long story short - purchased size 36. Waist was 35.5(no problem), thigh 12.25(problem for me). On item page 36 is supposed to have 13.2 thighs. Wasn't meant to be I guess.

 

I've tried to make TSG jeans work for years, the measurements in theory should work somewhat OK for me but in reality it always ends up looking off. I can't really pin point my issue, i think it may have to do with narrow hip measurements on them relative to a larger waist and low rise. I've been on the fence about trying the regular straight cut from them but it seems to only come in the 1xxx denim

^ You're not alone mate. Been looking at them for years, waited until this collaboration cut - which needs better measuring and is still not perfect for what it claims to be.

Really cool denim though, I bought it just for collection, really.

I will have a store credit once received by SESF. I'm close enough to SELA, and like the denim enough, that I may go in and try on multiple pairs to see if I can find a pair that will not be too tight after washing.

Did they fit though?

Thanks

For reference I wear a 32. I bought the SESG's in a 36. Weird sizing indeed. No fit pics for a long time because these are on ice while I wear my Stevenson's and Warehouse's.

Anyone noticing any evo on their wavy jeans yet? I have a pair myself but unfortunately I have a suit and tie job so I only get to wear on nights and weekends. I'm impatient and am dying to know what lies ahead.

Same situation here. They're still in the closet, and my limited wear time is spent on the Ooe contest jeans. Haven't seen any fade pictures yet on reddit either, though it has only been about a month since they came out.

I was wondering how strong the mud-dyed weft peeks through the denim on a pair of SG2109s. I have looked at pictures online, but it looks as though results may vary. Does the weft fade with soaks and washings? I'm guessing the color doesn't show up with fades?

In addition to Strike Golds, Momotaros and 3Sixteens...any other companies offer brown/mud/tan dyed wefts? Thanks!

Japan Blue (under Momotaro umbrella) do one, and I think Rogue Territory do one as well

Just depends on how much you push it wear wise. Hemi of NZ's Wakefield Hotel posted some pics of some well worn 2109's ages ago and you could see the weft quite clearly, but they were heavily worn to the extent of there being nothing but weft in certain areas if you see what i mean.

wanted to post a couple fit pics of my wavy standards. Like most i found the fit to be a little off and i sized up from 32 to 36. Although the are a bit big i am enjoying the level of comfort, I soaked them for about an hour and have been wearing them the past 3 weeks.

Drew Breeze - they look good fitted loose like that.

Can I ask what the waist measures now?

Thanks.

I've been scouring this thread for the fit advice on TSG sweats. I'm eyeing an oatmeal one from the Tenryo shop. How did you guys size them?

 

I'm eyeing the medium at the moment but the shrinkage makes me consider the large; I like my tops on the shorter side but I don't need it to be a crop top. I'm 5'10", weigh ~150-lbs with a slim/average build.

You should be getting a medium man. For sure. Mine is super short but that's because I got washed and dried it, if you just wash it it won't shrink as much. I think the large will be too big on you if you're looking for a "clean" look, like kobayashi or me etc

I've worn mine about 2 months or so, with one cold soak just recently.  They are starting to have some pops of blue, especially in the crotch area, back pockets and front pockets.  They also are starting to soften up a bit.

i'm roughly the same weight/height and have a medium; depending on what kind of jeans you're wearing, it might be a crop top, but these kind of sweats are always short and the large will likely not be *that* much longer and just too big overall..

I usually wear a pair of SC Okinawas and TFH 3009s. I'm assuming they should be okay considering their rises.
