We're about the same size and I went with the 35s, took them about a month to stretch out. I'm glad I went with the 35" waist because I know the 36 would be too loose after break in. Good luck finding a trade.
Anyone have any experience with Kamakura Shirts coming into Canada? I just had one shirt from Ratio clothing sit in the customs wing at Canada Post's Gateway plant in Mississauga for the better part of a week.
Canada Customs has been sitting on my order from Ratio Clothing going on the past five days at Canada Post's Gateway sorting plant in Mississuaga On. which like a half hour drive from home. Not happy considering I just received a camera lens that was also sent by USPS that went through the same facility that was shipped later and arrived today.
Pissed off that Canada Post and Canada Border Services (Customs) is sitting on my package from Ratio shirts for the past four days in a postal facility a half hour drive from home. Come on, how long does it take to inspect a package already? It's one madras shirt.
I backed my broken weave denims back in May with a July shipping deadline and they left SF for Greater Toronto the last week of July. Chances are they ship the last week of the Month, for example I back some 13oz Japan Standards which I don't expect ship until the end of September which means I'll see them by Canadian Thanksgiving mid October. Hope this helps and Gustin denim is worth the wait.Bill
