How would you guys rank the Japanese denim from LF to say, Kicking Mule Workshop's? And quality-wise... compared to, perhaps Raleigh Denim and KMW?

Reason is, I have a pair of KMWs that are a bit too tight to wear, so might pick up a pair of the LF raw indigo denim (non slub).

Left Field denim is great. All American components is awesome construction. I have never worn KMW but I would say it would be on par.

How much did they stretch waist wise? Got a pair coming in as I had some credit and they fit everywhere except the waist looks good for me right now.

Agreed. Don't have time in a pair to comment on fit behavior but construction is top notch & materials are awesome. they use different fabrics, though, so be sure you explore which denim you are interested in.

While I have not had any experience with their denim, their chino quality seems to be lacking. Recently picked up a pair of chinos from context, tried them on once then washed them once in the washer, and two buttons fell off :/

Hey bud,

There was a production issue with batch a of chinos where the buttons weren't properly secured. E-mail Christian at Left Field and he will take care of you. He actually hand sewed the buttons on the ones for his web shop because he didn't want them falling off on people, but some stock lists may of got chinos with loss button stitching (or someone tried on a pair that was too small...)

in somewhat related news, i've got a pair of olive 34s fs if anyone's interested.
post #158 of 329

Just received my Cone White Oak Greaser denim, I was wondering if they were unsanforized or not? I ended up purchasing a size 34 due to the actual waist measurements being 33.4" and I have a waist measurement of 34" so I was taking into consideration the 0.5-1.5" of stretch, however they actually a bit looser than I'd imagine. Shot an email to them already but hoping for a quicker response

Edit: Yup, they're sanforized

Context has a full size run of the Japanese one on sale:

My cone oak ones stretched out well in the waist (ordered a 33, I'm a 34 waist) and the fit is really good for me now. Like the tighter top block but still having room for thighs

Also picked up a pair of the Cone White Oak Indigo and Natural Selvedge Duck Chinos as seconds from the Left Field store....I can't find anything wrong with them, great pair of pants on discount if you are looking to make a purchase...

left field is nice but it isn't as good construction/finishing wise as KMW.
post #163 of 329
The ever changing measurements make sorting out what size in which fabrication a bit of a challenge. I've bought and sold two pairs now due to that.

However..the new "Miners Chino" cut looks pretty sweet, with decent thigh room yet more taper to the hem. Really like that in the Cone indigo and the caramel duck.

EDIT: The model shown is 6" 155 and wears a size 33? That does not compute, unless he's got a beer belly. I'm 6'3 175 and wear denim that measures at 32-32.5". Confused...

Different styles though, Left Field has a lot of unique pieces and stuff that's really hot now like caramel ducks have been a left field staple for a while

Yeah I emailed Christian about the new sizing, says waists are a bit looser but slimmer through legs. Which is 100% perfect for me. Left Field top block is cut tighter than most denim
