I may just end up going for the normal length in black, it probably would get more use in that length anyway. Also, this may be a stupid question but do you by any chance know the difference between napped and the non-napped version?
I've not seen the two versions side by side - I suspect the main difference is in how they'll age with use. In my experience brushed cotton develops a more worn in look quicker than non-brushed, but the ageing is more even.

Along with a couple of pairs of Kapital pants I picked up the 'Route E10' catalogue from the post office this weekend - there are a few shots from it on the web site but it's a very strong collection. Well worth picking p a copy, although for the sensitive souls I must warn that it does contain a few shots of topless young ladies.

A couple of sellers on yahoo.jp had a load of new old stock pants, some of which looked like the measurements might fit so I took a chance.

The least successful but wearable:

'Tea' Coloured denim - probably around 10oz - pretty lightweight. Supposedly a 36W but slim in leg and seat. If they weren't relatively low waisted they'd probably be better on the waist, but they button without any real pulling so will hopefully stretch a little. Wearable, just slimmer cut and lower wasted than I hoped.



The interesting:

'Rope' embroidered denim (12-14 oz?) - very high waisted and long in seam. Again supposedly a 36W, but I suspect they're meant to be worn more over sized with braces. Very high waisted and long legged. Loose leg. Should be fine worn a little lower and rolled. Growing on me.



The great buy:

'Cactus' Herringbone Depression pants:

Again supposedly W36 but a little oversized (great for fat folks like me). Normal rise long inseam (35" ish) so will need rolling or hemming. Straight leg, nice weight and a good fit. Will keep an eye out for these in other colours:



None were expensive and all are wearable, with only the 'Tea' coloured denim a bit marginal as to comfort. Worth the experiment.

Now if anyone can name which collections each one came from you can get bonus points. smile.gif

I just picked up a black wool ring coat, and these picks have me so hyped for it.  Such an awesome piece.

Has anyone got experience with the Stone fit?

It would be interesting to hear how it compares with the Okabilly and the Cisco.

 

I have a pair of Century Denim 5-S in the Cisco fit. They're a straight leg.

The other fits for the Century Denim are TH, which apparently is similar to the Cisco but higher waisted.

TH and Cisco both have button flies, while the two slimmer ones: Stone and Okabilly have zippers.

Yes the TH is similar to the Cisco - not that much higher waisted, but slightly higher (less than 1cm) and slightly larger in the waist - the TH is very much a true straight whereas the Cisco has slightly larger thighs and slightly narrower knee - the differences aren't that great (note this is for standard denim and herringbone I don't own any Century, fit's may vary a bit with fabric).

I've not tried the Stone, but have found the measurements on Kapital.jp to be spot on for all purchases: http://www.kapital.jp/e-store/detail.php?id=KAP-3KAP-22KAP-52&key=1707&category=72 They look to be slimmer legged.

There's also the Trail Pants in Century: http://www.kapital.jp/e-store/detail.php?id=K1501LP118K1501LP119&key=4612&category=72

Yes I'm glad @dieworkwear posted it. I've picked up half a dozen or so of the Kapital catalogues, and it was great to see one being made.

I have century denim in the Stone fit, they're a standard slim straight cut. Really similar to a Levis 511 with a slightly wider leg opening. Had some Okabilly too and they fit about the same if you wore the Okabilly lower waist instead of the high rise

Holy cow, MoK. That ring coat is off the chain. What size did you take and how does that compare to your EG sizing (bedfords, outerwear, etc.)?
