anyone have any experience with their 04 type model (5104 or 7104)? Going by online measurements it's a tapered model but I can't find any fit pictures.

I’ve been wondering about this cut as well. For some reason I thought it was the same as the SEXSG24, but the 04 cut seems to be much wider in the knee, a bit longer front rise, and a lower back rise. I like the cut of my wavy standards, and interested in the 5xxx denim. 

Anyone have these?

I'm assuming this is after shrinkage? How tall are you? I'm eyeing the Corlection SG sweats but the length might be a problem even on the large sizes.

185 cm. Yeah, they're not the longest. I probably could do with one size up, which doesn't exist.

Does anyone else have an issue with the size of the front pockets? My SEXSG24's are almost completely unusable, to the point where I put my car keys in the 5th pocket so I can easily take it out

Yeah Strike Gold from pocket bags are a few inches too deep for my preference

No shame. Moving my TSG 2103 size 34. Too big. These came one-washed. Washed once more - carefully, and worn 1/2 day. two-hundy shipped CONUS. Int'l pays actual shipping. DM me for deets. 

I really don't get why this cut hasn't caught on with fellas here on SuFu, or the rest of the heritage raw denim world. It's mid rise, roomy thighs, straight cut. The proportions are much better suited to western builds than some of TSG's other cuts.

Ended up buying a pair of SG6109 when visiting SENY recently as my pants that I wanted repaired were beyond repair. Honestly was stuck about what pair of jeans I wanted next to wear as I usually do research before heading to Self Edge but went in blind this time around. Forgot the guy that helped me but he recommended these first and I couldn't be happier. Nailed everything I was looking for without saying much to him. Major props to him.

Taken after a soak and day of wear.

That’s a really nice fit, better than I think I’ve seen for the XX09 line-up from Strike Gold. Enjoy! Definitely an under-appreciated brand relative to the attention Oni or PBJ get for their crazy fabrics.

SG6109

1 month of on and off wear

No washes yet but soaked multiple times. When I say soaked I'm referring to getting drenched by the rain.

Are these the jeans you just bought at SENY in November or so?!

If so, that's some crazy wear.

Yup! When one of the workers (I forgot his name) sent you those pics on my Imperial Shearers, aha.

And keep your old previous jeans beyond repair alive for ever and never ever throwing them away! Otherwise let me know before

I just robocopped the 5009 double indigo jeans that just came out. I wonder if they will be similar to the iron heart double indigo but with more slub. Pretty excited for these ones. I know it’s an all new denim so there are no fade pics. Does all double indigo denim fade with greater contrast or do these just fade crazy because of the rope dyeing and abrasive denim?

Cool! pls post pics when you get them

This, mainly. I think fading character has more to do with how the yarns are spun and dyed, and how the denim is woven. Saying that, double indigo might yield higher contrast fades due to no white weft. There are plenty of examples of normal indigo-on-white denim with high contrast fades.

This denim texture and feel in hand is amazing. I can’t believe we’re only on page 83 on this forum. These jeans are seriously under rated. The inside texture feels completely different than the outside. So excited for these 5009 as I’ve never seen a faded example.

Drying after 30 minute hot soak with agitation. These things were absolutely pouring indigo after the soak. I thought my flat heads were bad. Will post fit pics tomorrow if I can get them. Yee skapshhh these are slimmer than my f310 so hopefully the fit will be okay. I can already tell these will be fast faders.

Here’s the fit pics of the 5009 after a 30 minute agitated hot soak. The waist still has some room but the knees are super tight. Love the feel of this denim. I think the sizing and cut will work for me.

They look good but if they're tight in the knees they're going to be painful when you sit for a long time.

I’ve worn them for 2 days now and they’ve stretched. They feel pretty comfy now.

While I must admit that my first love was the Flat Head and I still do adore their denim I've fallen hard for the Strike Gold. Flat head has crazy vertical falling but the feel of the weave and fabric of SG is honestly just insane along with some of the colors. I mean these are possibly some of the the most intense jeans I've owned. I know I'm just ranting here but I honestly hope Kiya gets SG to offer more cuts by them. SG denim in a fit like the Flat Head 3009 or the Iron heart 634s would be a thing of beauty. long rant I know but im also fawning over some of the Studio d'Artisans... sometimes it sucks being a denim head lol. Anyone reading this please let me know your reactions coming from a brand and then getting something as irregular as SG denim.

Those look great Radiohead89, I've been enjoying my SG denim jacket (though it's hanging in the closet until fall rolls around.) I'm usually not too crazy about super-textured crazy fabrics, but the 5109 wavy denim used on my jacket is pretty interesting, and has enough subtlety to it that I don't feel like its texture clashes with my other clothes (as is often the case with super heavy/textured denim.)

@Radiohead89 my first pair was Naked and Famous years ago, shortly after that I got a pair of the 5109 and it was such an experience. I was blown away at that fabric in person and the fade examples. I remember getting them in the mail and the excitement I felt soaking them. This was in 2015. 

I didn't even look at other jeans for over a year, I liked them so much (and still do, though they are a touch tight in the thigh now though). Only have needed minor repairs, but I don't wear them often now. It's a pair I could probably never get rid of and will always have. 

Agree completely on a 3009 type of fit, with the grey or white weft fabric  (think 1105, 5105 for example).

Have you tried their sweatshirts by chance? Another great staple.

My 3109's. Couldn't tell you how many washes or how much wear, just many & much. Bought them in 2014/15 but only wore them sporadically, but they've seen much more action in the last 12mths.
