I got 34s, and they run true to size. Slim fitting and quite low rise. I'm happy
I'm off to Tokyo on Friday for 10 days, and I plan on hunting down some good denim while there. Superfuture's SuperCity list is pretty difficult to navigate if y ou don't know exactly what you're looking for.... can anyone recommend any essential shops to hit to find interesting denim? I'm particularly looking for either Sugar Cane Hawaii's, Samurai Zero's or SD-101XX (probably not findable...)
Any thoughts on essential places to hit?

Also in natural indigo are Pure Blue Japan's AI-001, at 45000 Yen which is also under $400. Ex suppliers to 45rpm. Slim fit, low rise. Extraordinary fabric.
Blue Blood Dry Goods are natural indigo as well, and around $200USD. Picked up a pair recently, I'm quite pleased... made in HK, not JP, but the finish is quite good.

I went down today... good selection of Rogans and Loomstates, all for $80/ea. Sale runs through Sunday, and the size runs are good -- good washes/styles in all sizes.
Picked up two pairs of Rogan Originals for my friend, one in Vapor wash and one in Tragic. Pretty nice.
Speaking of Japan, what are some of the recommended shops around Tokyo that are worth hitting up? I'm heading to Tokyo for 10 days in October, and I'm trying to plan out a trip to find a nice pair of unwashed, natural indigo dyed jeans to use as a project pair. I was thinking of 45rpm, but any other recommendations would be appreciated.
