A few photos of my 19oz s710xx's

(vintage Woolwich parka, and vintage Frye boots)

I will try to get some more detail shots soon, a lot of patch work done and still needed...

Additionally, a few photos from my trip to Quebec. Photos are from a hike my friend and I went on North of Quebec City. -30 C, and plenty of snow didn't stop the Samauri's.

I do, and in fact I have a BNWT 32w, 21oz. FSOT. (I hope this plug isn't violating any forum rules!) 

I've now had 3 pairs of 711s. The sizing is all over the place. The 17oz 32s and the 21oz 34s are about the same dimensions. The ones I'm selling (32w, 21oz.) were way too tight, although I have the S5000s in 32 also and those fit great. The 711 is a cool fit IMO: low rise, slim thighs, but with a real vintage straight leg look. They are not "skinny jeans" and look great stacked. They are kind of like a slimmer S5000, and the cut is very similar to Strike Gold 1105 & 5105. I should also say I prefer the 21oz. to the 17oz. The 17VX is great, but the 21VX is something special.

Not sure what you mean about the selvedge line...mine all look normal.

I just started wearing my 711vx 17oz again. They are a nice fit if you don't mind low rise. What do you find special with the 21oz pair? Are they still comfortable at that weight?

I wanted that pair a year ago then lost interest. My interest is now peaked again.

Well, I'm a sucker for the 21oz. VX/Zero denim, so I try and snag it in any cut I can. The 21oz. were a tough break in w/the low rise. I wore them every day for 3 weeks and was wondering if they were going to work, but then one day...second skin. What size do you have in the 17oz.? I recommend sizing up one for the 21oz.

Which model has a 32" true waist and at least 12.5" thighs?

 

High rise would be nice. Can't find what seems to work well. Would like 17 or 19 or more ozzz

Got some good wear on my s710xx after cleaning out my room at my parents house. really loving how soft the denim is despite its weight, and i'm in love with the cut. they would be my favourite jeans if they were hemmed a bit shorter.

I would choose the same size. But measure your tcb and resolute and compare to the measurments of samurai to be certain.

I'd like some advice. I have the Sugarcane 1947 (SC1947) in a waist 31, one-wash. They fit well from the get-go, a bit tight (just a very small bit). What's a comparable Samurai jean? I want heavier denim. I thought about the Iron Heart but the rise seems to be much lower..

The closest model should be the Samurai 510XX which comes in 15oz, 19oz, 21oz and depending on special edition up to 25oz.

Another wide-legged cut would be the S634.

I wear TCB 50's and TCB 50 slim in size 30 and would wear the S710XX 19oz in 31 with a cold wash and 32 with hot wash and a little bit upsized. I do have a size 30 S5000VX that fits me perfectly but it's a lot10. so sizing might have changed in the last 10 years ahaha.

Which Samurai have a large rear rise? Something like..15/16? That's my biggest gripe with these 710 in comparison to my Sugarcane 1947

 

S0510xx ?

Is there a black in this?

The 510 cut is your best bet. No black version I'm aware of though

Dang. Any other similar in black?

Most black Samurai jeans are in the 710 cut. Then there is a new 511 but the rise isn't that high AFAIK. Also the 5000 comes in black but has a mid rise at best, lower than 710.

There was a black 3000VX nearly 10 years ago...that would be the only higher rise model I know of.
