Well, the hurricane soak didn't do much except get dirt on my jeans, so I gave them a handwash anyways.

Prewash photos, a late update on 7 months.

Most of the indigo was from the SExRJBxFH

^SGJ1: Nice fading on them. Now try to stand a s long as possible before second wash. They have a serious fading potential left in them!!

depends on the sizing.

for the same size:

S5000VX slimmer in the top block and thighs than S0500XX

S0500XX slimmer at the leg opening than the S5000VX because of the taper

so by sizing down/up or TTS you can achieve different fits

Has anybody experience with the w001 belt? I am particularly interested in fitpics / size comparisons of the buckle. Thanks in advance.

Im looking to get a new pair of jeans and was looking into Samurais. After perusing this thread a little I saw pair that caught my eye and it was the Black Knights, loved them. I went to BiGs website to see about them and the were sold out.

I'm curious, will these be produced again or was it a one an done kinda thing?

BiG is coming out with a black 710 soon in VX denim. They have an indigo pair of 710s called the Blue Shadow and the black one is coming soon.

Im still trying to get hip into the Samurai lingo :)

Would the Black 710 in the VX denim by the same or similar to the Black Knights?

Satya please join the element contest! It would be appreciated! Even though we already have 1 water model it doesn't mean we can't have 2!

unfortunately i do not have any pics or size comparison. but i have handled this belt before while in japan. tried them on and they're a really heavyweight and thick belt. even the buckle is twice your size of a normal buckle. :eek:

the Black Knight used 19oz denim that was deadstock

So you won't get the exact same model again.

Now you only can choose between the S5000BK or Black Shadow (same 17oz denim as the S5000BK, but slimmer cut and different details).

Decided to do a DIY hem on my S5000s.

6109383378_b9b198c219_z.jpg

To finish up the hem I think I will send them to DD to also give them a little taper cause they have major hip flare. I know you guys will hate me for doing that but no regrets for doing it.

I do have hip flare too with the element, common issue for slim guy wearing a full cut jeans, please post your s5000 after the alteration ;)

Hi guys,

I am wondering how big the market for $300+ artisanal denim is outside of Japan. In a big city like Vancouver I rarely see selvage denim, let alone any of the prized Japanese brands like Sams, PBJ, SdA, RMC or SG etc. I wonder if it is really just a bunch of denim geeks tuned into this forum and 2 others. I mean the entire US has one retailer for Sams and I am guessing it is the only retailer outside of Asia?

Cheers,

Yeah, I will! I am debating if I should get them altered like a looser pair of 710s..

Well.. what do you want to know? I mean I live in NY and for the first time today I saw a pair of lesser known brand jeans out of the year and almost a half I have been working there. It was a pair of PRE-washed nudies... not even raw. So I mean most people who know about denim are going to be on a forum like this one unless, they have a good friend.
