Shameless Plug: Would anyone be interested in this Flannel in size XXL? Can post Pictures and measurements if needed. It simply didn't fit like I wanted, so it was only tried on.

What do you think about newer version of s710xx19oz (that's in Denimio and some other websites)? Is it gonna replace the old one or just a new model? Looks like they share the same fabric.

Looking for some sizing advice for S510XX19OZ.

I'd prefer a post-shrink/stretch waist of 32.5" to 33".

My other jeans that fit well are:

  • Sugarcane BSPOW - Size 32 / Post-stretch: 33"
  • IH 777s - Size 32 / Post-stretch: 32.75"
  • TCB 50s - Size 33 / Post-stretch: 33"

I'm wondering if I would need a size 32 or a 33. I am unfamiliar with the amount of shrink/stretch with this denim. TY!

Why does the S211VX Benkei model not exist in like any discussion on the internet? The measurements on this pair seem nice, and the weight is just what I'm looking for but I can only find a few mentions on the internet and only one fit pic from a reddit thread. Anyone here own these?

 

I'm on the fence between these and the S520, but didn't want 21oz.

I have them the waist is quite small on this model but comfortable around the hips and the rise is comfortable I had to sell the 0255 cut which is the other overseas cut as the front rise was to long and couldn’t open my legs properly

Thank you! Smaller waist, bigger thighs is actually what I’m looking for. Have you tried the S520XX?

Oh and some deets. You can kinda see the silver/red selvage.

@maharu post above reminded me that i had some pics I never posted of the sj42cp with a few washes, mostly worn in casual office during 2 winters.  pulling them back out of the closet now for winter #3.  some of the stain from a leather belt rubbed off a fair amount on belt loop areas and there is some visible marbling/crease from wash/dry.  i really like the construction/hardware details on these.  i don't have pics but they have silver selvedge.  lockstitch 1 inch'ish trouser hem type of thing going on.

Thank you for allowing to see into the future of mine.

I bought mine three years ago but haven't put it into much action. The first year or so I had a misconception. I always associated "chino" with "summer" but this one is actually a cold weather trouser. Took me a while to understand that. So this is the first winter season I am wearing them.

Problem is: in winter its cold AND wet and this fabric sucks liquid and dirt like blotting paper. Literally. So can only wear in dry winter weather. Which -  were I live is - quite exceptionally. Plus I am avid bicyclist. And grease just loooves this pants. I mean, they really bound. They really stick.

So all the fortunes of heaven have to be in the right place to bring this one on the strret. 

Still: great pants. I am wearing them as I write this.

I hot soaked my S510XX19OZ twice and I'm surprised by the lack of shrinkage. They shrunk maybe an inch at most at the waist. Both soaks used nearly boiling water at 90 minutes with heavy agitation. I don't need any more shrinkage but I'm wondering if I should toss them in the washing machine prior to hemming. Does the 19oz Kiwami just not shrink that much?

Every denim shrinks different amounts, and may continue to shrink more. Two options: wash them in a washer, hot water, inside, prior to hemming; or, get them hemmed 1/2" - 3/4" longer than needed to allow for extra shrinkage when washed again. This is what I do, so roping starts to appear when I wash them after hemming. I'd rather too long than too short.

For what it's worth, I gave my 710's (not kiwami) two hot soaks similar to what you did, and when I eventually machine washed & dried them a few months later, there was no noticeable additional shrinkage.

Hey guys! 
 

ugh hope all has been well with you all!! 
Figured I’d try to bring some life to the thread by showcasing my SWD-L01 shirt. To be honest I’ve kind of lost count of how long I’ve been wearing the shirt or how many washes but I absolutely love this shirt! Here’s some shots. (Excuse the photo quality I’m at work bored :ph34r:)

Take care guys!!
