They fit you great John...

We are around same age and I still think that my size is still the same. And always I have to solve tight waist after first soak 🐵

@JohnM I am glad the W34 worked out for you as it did! Really a good and comfy looking fit.


On another note, the SugarCane Okinawa is said to be dyed with a small amount of Ryukyu natural indigo (never found out how much, probably jst 1% or so :D ).
Anyway, it might be this indigo from this blog entry:

Considering past-bF had a raw pair which he (only) soaked (?), he might not be able to wear them anymore after he washed themn.
Present-bF has a one-wash pair which shouldn't shrink too much.

Yeah the length.
I hoped for a smaller double cuff for this summer look and a bigger single cuff for normal look. Maybe some more shrink is in the fabric length-wise. Hem is still an option. Not a fan of the "Tokyo Turn-up" or how they call it these days.

The fit is defenitely better than it was in 2015. Considering I was even heavier back then makes me wonder why I squeezed into them. But I wore a lot of pairs too tight back then (in hindsight).
Waistband is still a bit tight but I am happy with the rest of the fit. Compared to my other jeans, they are of course quite "loud" with the very neppy fabric and the sashiko pattern. I reduced the double cuff to 2" so it it's smaller and less high.
I think I'll keep them ;)
