darker ones are the 2000. More worn ones are the 2005. That beef jerky patch though! Haha

Well I just gone for the w42 theory I’ve pulled the tigger on them I hope it works

Sound crazy buying a w42 

What size are u on other brands?

I’m around W35-36.  I bought my 2000T No.1 at their Ueno store.  I tried the W38 O/W,  but the waist seemed a bit tight, so I went for W40L32 in RAW.  Initially, I just double hot soaked, but they seemed way to loose, so I got them hot washed & machine dried ... which I don’t usually do.

Fast forward 2 washes later,  the denim shrunk like a mofo ... the waist has stabilized at 36”, which fit me much better now. I’m so glad I didn’t go for the W38.

@lee porter yeah, u can do the hot wash & just hangdry.  It’s just that when I acquired the W40 I was still a solid W34 on  japs & I was a bit anxious, like u are now, that I may have overestimated the size-up, so I semi-panicked & opted on the nuclear option.

I usually just double hot soak from raw ... not even wash ... but I wanna find out right from the start if it’ll work out or not cuz I don’t wanna waist leg-time on something that’ll not work down the line.

Though the No.1 shrinks like mofo, u just can’t do it one shot ... believe me I tried :P.  It’ll take a couple of washes for the denim to settle & stabilize.  So, initially,  don’t bother ... just wear them loose, better fit will come in time.

I’ll do a fit evo when I get a chance.  Caveat, I don’t have the proportions, like @beautiful_FrEaK ;),  who gets [spot on] fits on the getgo.   In fact, I do a lousy [initial] fit photo ... all the time :laugh2:

Current measurements: W40L32

w= 18” , f/r= 11.5” , b/r= 15.5” , u/t= 13.5” , knee= 9” , leg opening= 7.5” , inseam= 31.5”

Nice buy. I’ve always liked the look of those Yamanes @chambo2008 and reckon they’d make great summer jeans (most of the ones I’ve seen are pretty loose). A nice alternative to the standard 5pocket.

The top block fits much better after 3 washes, IMO.  If I knew [that],  I would’ve refrained from washing,  kept wearing them loose [as shown above] & kept them darker, longer.

@lee porter I believe you ordered the 42 2000t already, but I have a pair of the 2000t No.1 denim in size 42 and the measurements are as follows. I believe they were one washed when purchased. I have probably worn them less than 20 times. My spouse got them for me on a trip to Japan a couple of years ago. I wish she had not gotten the tapered fit, but it was a great gift regardless. They are really only worn when I need a pair of unfaded jeans since I have too many, well, assuming the loud red embroidered gulls are still cool wherever I am going.

original (cm) / cold soak / current

waist 96.5 / 94 / 97 

front rise 28 / 28 / 28.5

thigh 35.5 / 34 / 34 

inseam 80 / 80 / 80

leg 19.5 / 19 / 19

 

Pictures, since I busted them out to measure. Model is "Lot.2000T (No.1 / MOMOME Embroidery / Red) Slim Tapered Fit"

I can’t believe how small they are at 42 I was hoping for a more relaxed tapered fit

2005 no 2. ... Kinda roomy in the thigh but an aggressive taper at the bottom... The denim itself was very nice! Amazingly soft after a year of wear. 
 

dug out my old pair of the evisu international's 0005 in no.2 denim [another highly tapered cut with nice big top block]:

very soft indeed...

Ha, this thread hasn't been this busy since about 2008, I don't think! 

I've actually just listed some 2000Ts on ebay, same username. Tagged 40 x 32 but actual 34 x 31. If anyone is interested then drop me a message on here!

Is it no1 or no2 cheers lee

No.1, you can just about see it on the patch if you zoom in. You'd be fucked if you got that much shrinkage from a pair of No.2 denim but anything is possible these days with Evisu... 

Hem is 7", inseam 31" and waist 34".

I don’t think its that the no1 denim shrank 6 inches rather it was never a size 42 to begin with. Evisu’s measurements are all over the place. I had a tag size 38 in no.1 denim and it only shrunk 2 inches even after i put them through the dryer multiple times.

No.1 denim has the nicer hand to it, I love its hairiness when soaked and washed. But, pretty much every single vintage pair I've seen with the best fades have been made of No.2 denim. No idea why and it might just be one massive coincidence.

They'd already been soaked by the time I picked them up so I went by the shrunk measurements so no surprises there for me, ha. I'm just more about the loose fits these days and the 2000t cut isn't the one for me. Or my arse lmao.

I'm not wearing much denim these days to be honest as I'm more comfortable in other fabrics. Especially when working from home for almost a year now thanks to the pandemic. I'll always have a couple of decent pairs of Evis or Evisu though, of course! 

 

But from the current models, 2001 and 2004 will be as good as it gets. Some of the vintage Evis cuts are looser than the old 2501/2001 cut though. Both of the Evis Cowboy Lee reproduction models, Lot 2101 and Lot2111, are very loose fits. 

 

But you'll never get a proper loose fit with any denim that weighs around 10oz and upwards, even with repeated washing. You'll get a baggy fit but not a loose fit which to me implies mobility of the fabric when moving around.
