Sugar Cane Denim

Recommended Posts

The patch reads SC40401A and the A stands for the one-wash version.

(N would be the raw version)

^ That’s supposed to be how it works but I think I’ve heard that’s not always the case in practice. The measurements should confirm either way and realistically, you should be able to tell by handling them.

They look raw to me, the patch looks like it hasn’t touched water. What’s the waist measurement (BiG) style and the inseam? 

Thanks Maynard. They’ve def been hemmed. The inseam is just 75cm (29,5 inches). Waist is about 42cm (33 inches).

I also came to the conclusion when researching the style nr but I think there’s just to little puckering. Some on the back yoke but that’s it.

@Spiraltoy

Check the inner care labels. I would have thought if they have been one washed they would at least look a bit creased up with light some indigo staining.

They may have had a cold soak with no agitation, although the waist looks about right for a raw pair. If nothing else, it's keeping us all in suspense...

Smart tip regarding the care labels there @bod but same ambiguity there.

Small update regarding the above raw/one wash questions. Seems they where raw. Got about 4cm in length and nearly as much in the waist. Top block is much trimmer over all and much more puckering. Thanks everyone who chimed in!
I’ll update with fit pics ones I’m home again.

thanks to beautiful freak for telling me about bears toyko. shipping was really fast and they already had been shortened to 32" length by DC4 which is next door.

my W32"  "one wash" pair measures roughly 34" in waist and 36" in length. I would expect these to fully shrink to a real 32" waist and and a 30" leg after a couple of washes.

if I had known better I would have sized down to a W30. when the sun gets out again I will do some photos for comparison to the us made version, the denim comes really dark compared to the SC42021 which I got earlier this year. anyone else got a pair of these 1955z?

I’ve had to wash these black 1947s (and everything else I wear) pretty often since my kid has gotten a habit of wiping his hands on me whenever he touches something gross (which is all the time) and have gotten some pretty nice grays coming out in a short amount of time. Really love how this black fabric ages.

Woah, I love how much the gray is coming out. How did you go about washing your pair? Contemplating washing mine soon.

Got my pair w30 today from Bears. I actually really like the zipper, but that's probably because I haven't used on a pair of jeans in probably over a decade. Here are some shitty pics I took in my room really quick. My initial thought pulling these out of the bag were if they were even one-washed or not since there was hardly any creasing.

Unfortunately the thighs are a bit tight so if anyone has a w31 to trade or would like to take these off my hands, I'd let em go for cheap.

I flip them inside out and wash them with other laundry on cold and air dry. I'm guessing i've been washing them about every 10 wears.

only noticeable thing was the length which i think i lost a little under an inch maybe? the rest of the jean shrank a little but stretched back out quickly.

Has anyone here been wearing the 1966? Thinking it will be my next pair. 

Is it the same denim as the 1947?

Different denim! They’re really good—I’ll have to snap photos of my faded pair soon.

I washed a bunch of jeans and snapped some photos of the 47 black jeans. It looks a little lighter in photos but the grays are def coming out.

^ Those descriptions hardly touch on any of what sets the ‘47 and the ‘66 apart…
