post #50626 of 53389
I wear belts with dress pants, but I just don't like them. They only add another of stiffness and awkwardness and are never comfortable when sitting. I have one Geller belt and even that doesn't make me "like" it enough to wear unless it's a necessity.

I'll get the grailed link out once I get on a desktop.

Would those indigo/indigo fade much? Kind of like the 316 shadow selvedge or RgT dark stantons?

PBJ actually had a little more of a taper. I literally couldn't get my foot through the hem on a pair of size 28s. I tried on a pair of these (albeit in a different denim), and a size 29 was a little tight at the leg opening but not disastrously so.

According to all sources, these will fade pretty slowly; the thread is "cheese-dyed" rather than rope-dyed like normal indigo raws, so the thread should be more saturated, Also, they used a sulfur-based indigo that should fade a little slower regardless.

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.

Japan Blue Group owns the Momotaro and Japan Blue labels as well as Collect Mills (denim mill) and Rampuya (dye house).

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.

Basically this, although in this case the leather patch was dyed indigo, which I think is kind of a cool nerdy detail.

I'm hoping at some point they come out with a version of these jeans made with the indigo warp / black weft monster denim.

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

Probably not a ton since they're sanforized, and comparable to what you see in the size charts (maybe less if you only wash them in cold water). They'll fade kinda slowly regardless (see earlier comment). If there's much starch in the jeans, the one-wash will get rid of some of that. You'll lose some of the raw denim feel, but it can potentially extend the life of the jeans a little because there won't be as much abrasion right off the bat. IDK, I went with raw because given the choise I always opt for raw. Always. mwink[1].gif

Margaret Howell roll neck sold out in my size frown.gif
post #50633 of 53389
Yeah, they seemed to be selling out fast this time. Previous years, they stuck around for a while. I'm bummed that I missed out on the MH hand framed rollneck (that was only on the MH website) that popped up on grailed a while ago.

She seems to skip some seasons for whatever reason, and not necessarily consistently.
