My guess is:

Waist (cm)
Rise(cm)
Inseam (cm)
Thigh (cm)
Bottom (cm)

Can anyone confirm? I may be mixing rise and thigh, maybe even bottom.

You got it right.

OK, another request for a rec from a non-denim freak (parse that however you like). I'm digging the fit on my RB1s, so I'd be interested in something with a similar fit through the seat and thight, but a lower rise. For the record, the RB1 fits slim but not tight on me. Sub $200, if possible. Thanks all- Tom
I'll give my very unexperienced thoughts: RB1 seems a slim to regular fit... ? Low-rise Japanese jeans usually go together with a slim fit. If you want a slim fit and low-rise, then there is SDA SD-103, Denime 66 Lowrise, maybe some Samurai too? Other options which seem to be not so slim but still low-rise may be Yen lot 105, Burgus Plus lot 750.

Just got my package via coldrice for my loopwheeler classic zip up.
It's not as thick as I thought it would but interestingly enough when you pick it up it's heavier in weight than I would have expected. It's stitching is very nice and the fit is pretty good, i float in between a med and small, so this one is a relaxed fit on me. The only disappointing part of the zip up is the zipper, for a high end product they used a YKK zipper, which seems a bit generic to me...after all at this price range it's all about the details.

The inside is soft but not fuzzy soft like my Champion sweatshirt, you can see the loops of the cotton from the label pics. Really nice.

Aren't they awesome? Oh, and I was a little miffed about the zipper also, but I guess it's for authenticity? At least that's how I rationalized it. Regardless, best hoodie I'll ever own. Glad you could get one.

yeah i had the same sentiments- but imagine how much the hoodie would have costed if they used a riri zipper. spruce hoodies are expensive because of the zipper. if they used a riri on the LW it'd probably be double the price and they're exepsnive as it is...

What kind of zipper is on the double zipper of the slim cut?

And thanks again Derrick for the quick ship and legwork. Surprised to hear my doorbell ring on Sunday for a package delivery.

Those wacky japanese and their cheap zippers!! As I mentionned before (in this thread?) the lad musician leather jacket I got also has ykk zippers which is pretty unforgivable in that price range. Dunno why they use those in their high-end streetwear, they're decent but that's it. I'm sure their domestic market is also looking for high quality in every aspect of the garment.

The fellas at Jack Spade (greene st) said that their next shipment of LW sweatshirts will have screen-printed suede elbow patches. They currently only have XL gray sweatshirts in stock. Word is Union is doing some shirts (sweatshirts?) w/ LW.

Riri zippers are about $14 apiece wholesale. YKK you can get 50 for that price. Spruce hoodies have a lot more going for them except for the zipper, though. The stitching, the cut, the construction of the hood, are all top notch.

It's a great manga/anime series, and when I have stuff with YKK zippers, I just tell myself it's an unofficial merchandise tie-in.

I'm so easy to satisfy

yeah i love those hoodies. i need to get one- i just have a w&h hoodie. oh. i was talking to the LW guys today. they do MTM and bespoke hoodies. Y30000 and starting at Y50000 respectively! haha. takes about a month or more to do the bespoke apparently. if you get it done- you get one of those cool wooden boxes i posted up earlier. damn. those are some expensive zippers.

oh another note about LW. the pocket T's and pocket LS T's are made of swiss cotton. very nice and soft- thicker than the standard blanks. i might pick up one or two before i leave. i'll post a pic of someone wearing it in a magazine later.

Yo la guy,

sorry for the jack. I don't know much about hardware. So riri zippers are quality? How about cobra buttons?
