Too late, already threw them into a sanitary wash with some detergent.

I liked the fit when they were damp, so I'll try and throw up some pics later today.

sounds like what i told you last week

Yup - same advice. Thank you both for the feedback. Unfortunately, BiG is out of stock on the 29's, so Gordon said I can either try a size 28 on the 660's or try some Samurai 505's if i want to go the Samurai route.

it seems there are several versions of the 700lot. some without the cinch-back, and some without the denim pocket-bags...

Looking into a pair of 800s. BiG only has one wash in size 29.

Wondering what other people have experienced with the OW 800s as compared to the Raw ones.

i think one of the versions does, from what i saw( i should've posted the link:(, now i can't find pics of the variations) all the 700s don't have the martingale(cinch-back) or denim pocket-bags either.

if so, ill pick up a pair instantly. I havent seen them yet with suspender buttons but i believe the 700 model without cinch is actually a WWII model? at least thats what it says on the Hinoya website.

my bad, i went to raukuten and didn't see any of the variations with suspender buttons. these are the various types:

''early WW2 700S' no cinch or denim pockets, no rivets on coin-pocket, features doughnut buttons on all but the top button. symetrical back-pockets. has the crotch rivet.

''classic 700SWW2'' has the coin-pocket rivets, but no cinch or crotch rivet. doughnut buttons on all but top button. no denim pockets.

''700 classic 5pocket'' same as whats sold @BiG.

i don't know how these are priced this way, it seems the jeans with the seemingly more expensive features are priced lower than the others. oh well, i got what i wanted...

''700SWW2S'' red tab, symetrical back-pockets, no cinch, no crotch rivet, no denim pockets

these warrens are only like $130 bucks(or less), so for anyone looking to cop a pair of ''starter denims''( i hate the term myself) should grab these immediately. same 1000xx denim as the contest jawns, and if sized down a bit they could potentially fit similarly to the 660,no? no excuse to buy APC and Nudies with these on sale! i see the price of the 700s&800s went up to $275usd now. to be honest, you cant go wrong. bunga, i've never seen a 'hidden crotch rivet''. can you let us see what that's like?

Yeah it's a really good deal. been thinking of snagging the 28's. but then again I already have too many jeans.

I got curious about that hidden crotch rivet deal too, but after doing some searching I figure it's supposed to say hidden AND crotch rivets.

heres what gordon had to say about the 1000xx denim. im only posting this since i know there was a debate about the cotton source...and i quote:

Hi Salaam,

The 1000XX has always used Memphis Cotton, I think for WH it was about having a denim made from USA cotton and that’s something Memphis is renowned for.

Regards,

Gordon

I finally got to check out Blue in Green in person, and in the process got a pair of Dubbleworks. Must say the denim, as well as the store, is pretty sick. Although it was the only store I went to on my entire trip that didn't have AC.....

after reviewing my list of wants and needs -- my wife got me some Warehouse 800's in OW from BiG for my birthday. Denim is beautiful . . . kinda hairy yet not crazily so.

I'm 6' 182 lbs and a true 36". I went with 34" one wash. measures out to about 34.5"-34.75" in the waist, 11.5" in front rise and 15" in back rise, 8.5"-8.75" leg opening. Can't measure inseam b/c no tape measure (just an 18" ruler) but easy fit for my 32" inseam with a single cuff. A little snug now in the waist (but perfect everywhere else) but seem like they will stretch easily. Gordon predicts 2" of stretch in this denim so hope it'lll be perfect at the end of the day.

My only worry is that I don't blow a button hole stretching them out. That looks like a potential weak point in the overall build (button holes are not reinforced at all). Surely by design. Or I finally get skinnier.

Given that I pissed all over my New Standards last weekend in a drunken frenzy it's probably time to start anew anyway . . .

i don't know if you use the cinch, but you can tuck that lil flap into the slender hole behind the 'triangle' for a cleaner look...as you can see, it's been 2 weeks, and you can start to see atari! enjoy my dude.
