Japanese denim advice...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am interested in ordering a pair of jeans from cold rice, but I am really confused and was hoping you guys could recommened (preferably with links) some jeans that I would like based on some criteria.

I prefer a more relaxed leg with a slight boot cut, I am sure I am going to get shit for this but something in similar fit to the earnest sewn hemmingways or the true religion joey's. I like a back pocket designs, but nothing to loud.

I have sorta been navigating rakuten and I like the Samurai's and Studian d'artisan's. But, I am open to anything. And as far as price range I was hoping around 150-225.

Thanks guys I really appreciate it all the help!

It's going to cost you more than that. As for the cut, the two brands you're referring to are raw vintage levis reproductions so the back pockets are mostly plain. Take a look at the SD fit chart here- http://www.dartisan.co.jp/shilhouette/index.html

Looks like the SD-105 might be the one for you, lower and bootcut. More importantly start searching! There's been a ton of posts on this stuff.

thanks for the help.

I have searched and waded through post after post on japanese denim, but I still have no idea what the difference is between a full count and a pure blue japan and I have no clue how to find the stores/pics on rakuten.

That's half the fun. Do a search on "Rakuten" on here and on superfuture and you should get a bunch of results back with some links hopefully. Here I'll start you off with some basics:
http://www.j-fabled.com/index2.html (ok not technically rakuten)
http://www.rakuten.co.jp/klax-on/
http://www.rakuten.ne.jp/gold/bears/

That should point you in the right direction

there's plenty of posts, actually, about How does a PBJ fit in relation to...? and you can sort of work it out from there.

225 won't buy you anything close to PBJ's....

Be careful of the measurements on that site. They may be pre-was. The measurements on Rakuten/Bears for the SD-105 are WAY smaller at the same waist size.

All Bears measurements are wrong. SD's are correct, well the waist, inseam and hem at least. these are bootcut and 230-240 through xcoldricex. http://item.rakuten.co.jp/bears/syouaiya-xx004/

Actually, the XX-003 probably doesn't run for much more than that
