If the £ hadn't nosedived due to Brexit, I'd be tempted to get a pair with shovelhead pockets.

I dig the shovel head pockets but also like the regular pockets.

Just get some mate, and support Ande.

I just checked xe.com, post Brexit, the £ lost 4p against the $US, disregarding the sudden peaks and troughs, that's hardly a collapse.

At $US225 for the 15.3oz, and the 4p drop, that's £9.00 ish the difference. Or put another way a couple of pints or coffees.

Brexit is being over hyped, it's as if the skies have fallen in. When the UK joined the EEC

( pre EU ), us Kiwis thought the world had ended....reality was that it opened up other opportunities.

Brits might have a fresh think about the Commonwealth, and who their friends were 75 years ago......

The 15.3 oz's are awesome.

Ande Whall jeans are now $250 shipped - this is a permanently reduced price I believe.

Are there any fade pictures of the solid black?

Would love to see some as well. Those are some of the sharpest looking black jeans I've seen, would really like to see/hear how they fade.

Maynard what size do you typically take in your buffalo's? Thinking about a pair of solid blacks and I think you and I typically take the same size in other brands.

31 in Buffalos and 32 in most other denim brands.

That's what I figured. You dont happen to have a hip measurement of one of your pairs? Wondering how roomy the top block is.

I don't even know where to take a hip measurement but they are roomy and high-waisted. I am a 32 in 50s cuts and these are fine.

@ SuperJackle,

Ande's currently having a flash sale on the solid blacks - $199 - so probably worth ordering them now.

Well I got word from Ande that my buffalos are en route. I'll try to get some fit pics up once they arrive since the buffalo seems uncommon.

Looking forward to the fit pics! Haven't seen that many pictures of the black denim floating around.

Well my pair arrived today. I'm really impressed with Ande's work. I was a tad apprehensive about the buffalo measurements for awhile because it seemed like a high rise Jean that had big thighs but tapered a bit aggressively down to the knee. This isn't the case however. I was picturing a Left Field greaser sort of cut, which I've owned and is too slim.

There is a surprising amount of room in the top block which is a welcome design for me. This is strange as well because the hip doesn't measure very wide. Most of the size chart measurements were spot on. This cut seems much roomier than measurements indicate overall and it seems to be one of the cases where measurements on paper don't tell the whole story. It may very well be the higher rise shifting everything lower a bit.

As I said it felt a bit roomy, but not at all a deal breaker, so I gave them a brief warm soak. They're drying now but I'll try to get some pics up in the next few days.

As I'm sure most of you know, all the details, construction, and hardware are killer. The black denim has a very smooth regular feel and isn't too starchy or stiff. No sulfur smell either. The denim feels to be a great year round weight at 13oz, but truth be told with winter coming I do hope the weave tightens up a bit now after hitting warm water. Ande told me this denim has a bit of shrink to it.

I might add, I've been on the hunt for the perfect polycore stitching and this may be it. Most cotton wrapped poly yarn still has a plastic look to me like on my iron hearts, but this one looks real good. May just be because it's tonal black, however.

Anyways, rant review over and I'll get some pictures up soon!

Such a shame.

 

Unfortunately it has taken this to happen for me to order my first 13.5oz pair, to go along with my SR8 and SR11's.  All Caribou's.

 

Good luck Ande.
