Shameless plug: selling a pair of SC1947, w28x32 with arcs and red tab:

Whatever happened to the arcs + red tab version? It seems you can only find the non-arc versions nowadays.

They stopped making those almost 10 years ago after a lawsuit involving Levi's.

Interesting. I wonder how Full Count flies under the radar then. :P Or any jeans with a red tab.

Yeah 47 fade really well. Mine have faded well also with wash.

It always amazes me how the 47's look slim on one person versus looking like bell bottoms on another person.  Even on myself, they are wider in the legs so to speak.  Maybe it's just me.

Right there with you.

Saw lots of people wearing the 47's, went and tried on a pair, and was all WTF? Seems the 2014 is a better fit for me.

Yeah, true. I bought a pair expecting a nice wide fit but they look quite slim on me. Great pair and I love the fit, but definitely they're not fitting the way I expected.

Yep, it's not a super wide fit, not slim either, though I think for w30 and below it's approaching slim (at least it looks that way in photos).

Honestly, anything wider than the 47 doesn't look good on me, so it's wide to me. :P

It turns out to be a perfect regular fit on me  which is great. The cut is well patterned and looks good with all my shoes, too.

I can definitely wear and appreciate wider jeans than this, though.

Gave my 47s a wash last night. Love how they turned out but a tad regretful I had them tapered last summer. Oh well, at least the fabric is awesome!

They look great but I wish we could've seen what they looked like before taper, just to get an idea.

I wish I had some pics to share... These were (supposedly) only tapered from the knee down, i.e I gave Railcar the same thigh measurement when they did a whole leg taper. I think the slimness in the top block is a combination of the denim shrinking more than they stretch and my having large butt-n-thighs for a 28 waist.

Here's a 6 month update on my 509SE, these are getting better and better. These have had a few soaks and one machine wash.

Today is a sad day.. I am about 10 and a half months into heavy rotational wear of my Black Type 3s, and I just had another big blow out, this time in the crotch area and there is nobody locally to fix them, and I am moving in 2 weeks so I do not want to send them away anywhere just yet. Ran them through the washer this morning and now I am putting them onto the shelf for temporary retirement.

Lots of photos.. maybe too many (oops)

Thanks P_K. We need to see more worn hawaiis here....especially if I'm going to add a pair to my 47s & Okis rotation sooner than later.

Those type III are so nice.  I just got my pair in the mail from self edge today -- fit is absolutely perfect.  I know  these are one-wash, but can anyone tell me from their experience how much, if any, additional shrink you get from subsequent washes?  Plan to wash cold & hang dry.  Thanks.

Do they make a longer version of the type III for westerners? I was in japan and they were all about 4-5cm too short on me but i really like the jeans.

^I was actually just looking into them and thinking of grabbing a pair. How does the denim feel? A lot of stretch?
