They're due in today. Just too late for my flight to Croatia. Word of caution on the Secret Denim. Get it pre-washed and do research sizing. I had to sell one on eBay (for a profit) before getting it right.
 Uniqueness, modernity, comfort, restraint and classical-referencing beauty are not often found in the same place.  As for wearability, guess that depends on how much you're influenced by tradition.
Now THIS, I really like.  
So they DID unleash the panda.    Never have been a big fan of the Daytona. But I think I'm coming around.
 The Ronin runs a bit trim. European sizing, basically. I'm about a 41" chest and went with a Large. Because I'm a stickler, I went to a leatherworker and had the sleeves shortened and the body contoured to me. I will say the sleeves run a bit long for me, so check that measurement. If the size works, great. If it's off, make sure you have a good leatherworker.
 Get the Ronin. I have one and it's f*king sweet. Joe rocket would get the job done. Leather won't be as nice and detailing won't be as cool. But it'd be fine. Just nothing special and less likely to survive many years and multiple slides.  I had a slide in my Ronin once. Helped break it in.
Well that is, no doubt, a passion we share. Perhaps it is a trait shared by many of the immensely small community of Julian Boot owners. That obsessive eye for skilled analog labor that is increasingly uncommon in modern manufacturing. Laser cut, machine stitched goods may be every bit as durable as their more expensive, hand-made competitors. But they don't tell the same kind of story.   Better not let you around Oni Secret Denim, hand loomed by en elderly man rumored...
16oz, right, that would have been my second guess. They remind me of my SDA 16s, though they seem a bit more stiff. Maybe newer.   Anyhow, excellent choice! Japanese textiles really are a thing of beauty. Big fan of Kamakura shirts recently too.   Had my Julians shipped to England, hopefully they arrive soon!
What's that, some 18 oz Japanese denim?
Might pair well with this conservatively-sized necklace.
