...It's like the iridescence of a magpie's feather...best denim quote I've ever heard...there's nothing like checking out fades at sunset or sundown. I haven't washed these yet but I've stolen them so long from Aztec (my bad homie) I might as well treat them like they're mine. I'm back to my old ways so today I was stuck on a roof putting up shingles. They will get a machine wash (gasp !!!) with Castile soap and a hot machine dry once this job is finished. All the  rooftop antics caused quite a bit of damage, back pocket is starting to come off. I have no clue how long they were worn before I got them, or how many days I've worn them, and I'll never be able to tell at this point. Let's get to the pics, shall we?

I'm here doing repairs work on a Vietnamese Bhuddist temple that had fire damage from a faulty stove...we finished the roof and I went to put a knife in my pocket and it went all the way through, I looked down and realized the whole pocket was coming off! The bitter with the sweet of cotton thread

I feel like myself again...I'll have to repair and wash these tonight, then a good wash. It's time for the old me. Believe it or not the tabis a bit shredded but still attached. Aztec is that dude! Ima see if I can salvage it and if not I'll snoop around and see if I can get another one

Aztec did quite a bit to relocate the tab and it was his heavy-duty stitching that kept it going this far, so even though I decided to  just do away with the pocket altogether I had to do what I could to keep the tab alive. My youngest loves putting her fingers up in something.

My almost 2 year old 883s. No clue on how many washes these had and for how long theyve been worn. Builtqualitywise these jeans are definitely one of the shittier jeans Ive owner, but hey, they fade really cool

What quality issues did you run across so far? I'm asking because to claim that the quality is shit is a big claim when referring to a renowned label with a deep history like Eternal. We need something to substantiate that claim. Not an attack, just asking for clarity. They seem to be coming along very well. The crotch is blown and repaired which is expected before the 2yr mark. Cotton thread is higher maintenance.

^agree completely. Thread and fabric wear seems to be as expected for daily wear at 2 years. Judging from the darkness at 2 years my guess is you washed really infrequently which may have reduced the strength of the fabric and threads.

I think I've had these jeans repaired atleast 10 times now and haven't been really wearing them daily due to the amount of repairs there had to be done. I ripped through the jeans around 5 months in(,the picture can be found a few pages back) , then a month later a crotch blow out, ripped pockets, stitching letting loose. Might be because of the way I use these jeans, but still.

I agree it's a big claim for a renowned brand like Eternal but compared to my Atelier la Durance or Evisu these jeans did not live up.

Fit is also a big wear factor, usually the tighter the jeans the more wear and tear due to the stress on the fabric and threads

Is anyone familiar with how much additional shrinkage is in Eternal's one washed denim? I read a couple pages back that generally most of the shrinkage is eliminated, can anyone else confirm? And does that apply to length as well? I know for some denim, the fit seems to settle in immediately but the inseam will shrink further with additional washes

^Some people seem to have gotten some additional shrinkage in length but I didn't.  Maybe a tiny bit but it was negligible. My washer is pretty aggressive too. I did however get a little bit of shrink in the thighs, knees etc. Again, pretty minimal though.

A lil crotch wear, no biggie yet. It's right past the last place it was repaired which is common. Wherever Atzec went for repairs did a serious job.

Hi mate. Do you currently have own another denim jacket that you like the fit of? Much easier and more precise to measure that jacket and compare it with measurements of the 886. Then we can be of help. 

Have a look at https://blueingreensoho.com/pages/measurement-guide if you need a measuring guide. Good luck!

I have the Eternal Type 2 in L and am approx 179cm and 170-175 pounds. I'd recommend you go for the M as it has long sleeves and a long-ish body. The chest is approx 44" on my L.

My size L = tagged size 40.

Quick question on the 811. This fit is a little small around the waist and thigh area but these seem to be OW, do you guys think I'll be fine?

Do you have a picture? Theres some stretch in them from ow state, but not as much as in other jeans. But 1" in the waist should definitely be possible.

      These are an absolutely amazing pair of jeans from Japan in the "One Wash" model.

       

      I bought these off of Tate and Yoko during their sale and got them hemmed to 30.5 inches.

       

      Unfortunately they don't fit me and I can't return them after they've been hemmed. I've only worn them for an hour around the house and they are too small. Probably will not stretch enough for me to use them.

       

      Comes with tags and everything. Get them for a steal. They retail for $275 US! And even Denimio charges $178 for them.

       

      Listed price includes shipping in North America. Contact me if you want a quote for elsewhere.

      Using spended weft dyes from Kurashiki Kojima in Okayama Prefecture, we present Eternal's long awaited jeans. This is a 14.5oz Eternal standard model that uses original denim. Traditional looms are used to weave the cotton threads together, the cloth woven with soft tension produces a special roughness and bumpy texture. You can enjoy the three dimentional fade from the bumpy texture as you wear them. The cut is Eternal's original straight legs which has a slightly tight impression. The cloth is dyed dark so that at one glance it appears to be black, once the denims are worn to a long time they begin to fade into its true color scheme.

      This material is Samurai Jean's toughest yet. Introducing Samurai Jeans S0500XX 15 oz Otokogi Straight.To make these, only American Texas Cotton was used which is known for its roughness and gives the thread rough bumpiness. The thread is twisted tightly which makes the material twice as hard. The thread was woven together at a thread count of 6 by 6. The limited deepness coloring used to dye the outsde of the fibers pure indigo without penetrating the core so fading will occure easily with wear. Unlike the other models, this pair was woven together with strong tension and to date has driven in the most tension around the waist.When you try on these denims, the strength around the waist will increase. Weighing on 15.6 oz, these tough denims are made for Samurai original denim die-hard fans. The Selvedge portion is called 「刀耳〠Seven Ears. These denims are easy to wear and around the hip and waist are balanced without being too tight above the thigh then are tapered towards the hem. This sillhouette is narrower than the S0510XX・S3000VX and a bit wider than the S5000VX・S0110XJ.
