Skull Jeans by An Alchemist

Recommended Posts

I think they're very good (and quite a cool brand), although I haven't handled a pair personally.

They're made by a smallish clothing company called FabFour:

By the way they have their own online shop where you can see their whole line:

The 5000XX is their 'flagship' model, a 1955-type 501 repro, which might be too baggy for you since you chose the "slim straight" 5507. (There is a 'super slim' model, the 5010, which you might look at as well.)

thanks do you know if the 5010 is selvedge, from the fabfour site it doesn't appear to be stretch, but they don't seem to have good detailed pics like rakuten.

thanks

I wasn't sure because the measurements are a bit strange. I guess they are measuring the whole leg, not just one side.

I believe this is their momo measurement:

My sz. 29 5EPs (after stretch) measure about 56 cm here, ahd they are not very fitted around the very top of the thigh (quite roomy in fact).

Mmm... yes "momo" = thigh, and I think the above interpretation is about right.

Sometimes this measurement is also called 'watari', and is measured like this:

pantu02.jpg

or rather twice this measurement (if you imagine the tape measure looping around the back of the leg to join up at the crotch. Note that the tape measure in this case is not parallel to the waistband, so that watari measured in this way is not exactly the redline above, but slightly more than it (although very close)

Neither of these is the same as 'hippu' (i.e. hip), which is this:

pantu01.jpg

or sometimes twice this. This is a straight measurement across the broadest part of the hipbones, the line of which is somewhat higher than the crotch.

according to the bears page the denim on the 5010 is the same.

Quote: Of course the material is the same as "5508" and "5510". If it can have looking at the color falling sample, you think that you can understand

these limited 6X6 look to be sanforised in heavier denim [i.e 14.5oz rather than 14oz]

and are available in No washing model as well as one wash.

yes, if I get Skulls it will be the 6x6's. They do seem to be sanforized because the translated page mentions "shrink proofing". What exactly does 6x6 mean though, I understand that it is a certain weave, but what does it mean?

I like them... a lot. They were really tight at first, but they stretched a little bit already. My only complaints are that the button holes are really small so its hard to get the buttons in and its really tight in the crotch. I got size 27. I'm around 5' 6" 120 125 lb.

This is my first pair of raw jeans, so I don't have a reference for 'sizing down'. Measurement is 72 cm so fabfour is pretty much dead on with their measurements. Shoot them an email for a 5010 size chart. Or just give me yours so I can send it to you. Im 16, and no, I didn't get them hemmed

Mr.CO,

Props to you kid, I was wearing fucking millers outpost carpenter jeans 10 sizes too big when I was your age. Nice fit on those and keep us posted on the wear with pics in the superfuture.
