post #50611 of 52778

Interested to know how they fit, they taper more than Somets and are getting into fashion jean hem widths, could look good but could also look weird as hell.

post #50612 of 52778
Ha, That fit is almost identical to the uniqlo x pbj "loose tapered". I might pick up a pair too.
Would those indigo/indigo fade much? Kind of like the 316 shadow selvedge or RgT dark stantons?

Would take a really long time to fade them like with any raws. JBs are pretty good for the price afaik, they're part of Momotaro, I know some say they're way inferior by but I'm not a denimhead and couldn't tell. I think the JB601 thighs are slimmer than UniqloxPBj, but with a roomier knee and same hem, so a straight up skinny jean for big thighed people, but I'm not sure if that even works without elastane.

They don't have some of the denimhead geegaws that Momotaros have, like hidden rivets, back pocket linings, special pocket bags, etc..  But for me, it's about the cut and the denim, and I really like the Japan Blue cuts, and a fair bit of thought seems to have gone into some of the more special denims, like the "Monster" denim.  

 

These, though do not fit like "skinny jeans" or at least, they should not be sized like that unless you want to look extra dumb.  The regular tapered are a bir more like that.  These though, are more like true carrot jeans.  You can wear them like old Julian reds, sagged so that they crotch is slightly dropped, with crazy stacks.  Think Dior homme jeans not sized down a bazillion.

So you're saying if I'm a 34, order a 34 and not go down to a 33 like I usually would on raws?

I never size down on jeans, but that's a personal preference.

I am a true 33 waist but buy 34's in most pants to have a better fit in the top block, usually when I get 34's in raw the waist is already too big and still stretches to the point of absurdity, so I take my true size 33 for raw (I also hate wearing belts, which must be blasphemy to you ha), but I also have only really ever found 1 pair of raws that fit me well (somet).

What is the property difference between one wash vs raw option? I assume the one wash model with be easier to size than the raws because there is no need to account for shrinkage? But is one wash much more difficult to fade?

how much shrinkage from washing can be expected from the raw model?

What do you mean by "fit me well"?  I find that this varies from person to person, and that for jeans, "perfect" fit is nearly antithetical to the whole idea of jeans, which started as a democratic piece of workwear, and where the real interest, unlike for tailoring, for example. is really in the way the same garments fits on a different body.

MrP, but Understudy also has it. I have a few of the wool cashmere knits, which are great. They are pricey at retail, though! I remember MrP had some previous season versions for $70 at the end of last sale season...
post #50622 of 52778

The 100% cashmere saddle necks are pure decadence, softest knits i've handled really. I used to get them from Inventory, but unfortunately pretty hard to find at an edible price these days.

Fit me well - waist stays up without a belt and I don't feel restricted anywhere.

I size my denim and pants the exact same way @OccultaVexillum  with 33 for denim and 34 for pants, mostly because eu50=34. If your true waist is 33 then thats sizing your denim normal and sizing up for pants, which I generally have to wear belts with. As long as they fit in the thighs and I don't have to wear a belt, but its also not contrsitcting when I sag them then thats a good denim fit whether its sized to the correct number or not. So your logic makes sense to me

 

Those Japan Blues look like a better cut, more tapered, 3Sixteen st120x, psyched to see how they fade for you guys

Fair enough, though I completely do not understand the "no belt' thing.  I feel that all jeans are slightly restrictive in the crotch, just because of the nature of the material, unless they are super loose (like my RRL straight lows, which are not very low at all, and very roomy, even sized down one to a 32.)

 

Also, kindly get the grailed reference out of your sig.  You can put your Styleforum B&S page, but not grailed.  Thanks.  This goes for everyone.
