post #31 of 411
here are some better pics of SD 100s worn in. I bought them a lot because of these pics, I wouldn't have bought them If I had only seen the pics on SD's own site.




What you need to do first is decide what cut you want.

if you can get, get the studio d'artisan D1177 21oz.. or their D01 or D02 (both deep dyed natural indigo).. i just got my D1177... worth every single penny.

and samurai jeans are nice too for similar price.

D1177 21oz

Someone please!!!!!!! give me a heads up on what it's like to wear and break in a pair of jeans that weighs almost 2 pounds, I have to know, hopefully there have been no injuries.

Samurais, Eternal's SD's some of these brands are totaly unfamiliar to me, plus you guys are always using abreviations when talking about certain fits and washes. Would someone kindly hook-up a translation thread so I can get up to speed on what to buy?, and no smart arses please giving me a heads up on Seven, Antik you know the deal!!!

Well. I'll start. SDA = Studio D'Artisan. Japanese company that makes high quality reproductions of archival Levis jeans. Most of the Japanese brands metnioned here do just that.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=6855361151 this auction on ebay gave a pretty good idea of the D1177's. and for eternal jeans, my pair of 811 is coming along quite well after 3 months of wear.. it has the perfect cut, i have to say. slim classic fit, and very comfortable. (just found a pic of a pair of 6 month 811's)

Man I really wish I could wear jeans to work, now buying another pair would just result in the ones I own getting almost no wear each. I might end up getting one anyway but since it's kinda like "just one last fix" at least for a while I really gotta choose carefully.

So far I've been eyeing 5EP straight, 45RPM (sorahiko?), denime and eternal.

So far I've been eyeing 5EP straight, 45RPM (sorahiko?), denime and eternal.

All of those choices are quite similar, and all of them are excellent. I'll point out some differences here.

5EP: Greencasted denim (optional?) on the Straight Downs. No-scratch rivets, red threads on leather patch, no contrast-stiching around the fly.

45rpm: A bit more generous of a fit. Truer blue than the other choices, and probably considerably less contrasty.

Denime: Heavy, starchy and more true to the 40s-60s Levi's (or Lee's, take your pick).

Eternal: A hybrid between 5EP's modern feel and Denime's heavy wear. Slimmer than Sorahikos, (most) Denimes, but not as slim as 5EP.

Kumoo, where did you find that? Not to be a naysayer but those look heavily sandpapered and not genuine wear to me.
post #41 of 411
seconded on those eternals. I don't think I could take sandpaper to my jeans, I feel like I would be ruining them. Those SDA's look pretty damn hip, though. I still want to buy them. My next pair of jeans are going to be either eternal's, SDA's, or Jean Shop.
post #42 of 411
ohhhhhh those 1177's look sooo good, much better than my 103's I have to say.
I think they're sold out everywhere though :/

that pic of the 811s is probably from the j-e-a-n-s.net community gallery, at least I've seen them there before.

Anyone know a good online shop for Eternal's that would ship to Canada. They are awesome jeans and i think those will be my next project
