So far I've narrowed it down to (feel free to suggest something else):
Flat Head 3001
Skull jeans (?) are doing some similar pairs too, no?
So what are the difference between these in terms of:
3)Denim characteristics (slubbier, diff. color, weight, etc.)
4)Something else I might forget
What about pricing, is one of these pairs a "better deal"?
the s0505 is slimmer than the sd103's, about 1cm(2cm circumference) or so in leg width all the way. they also taper all the way while the 103s are straight from the knee down.
the denim of the samurai's is actually quite slubby, much slubbier than the SD's which isnt really slubby at all. Both are 15oz. The samurai's contain much less starch, so they feel lighter than the SD's.
I am going to take more pics of my 505's after the soak, they are slubbier now than when they were raw.
You can order samurai's without a middleman, so they can be a bit cheaper than other brands.
