rising sun? lame.

Their construction is good on the men's models, and their cuts on the women's models are better than most of the Japanese repro brands.

you could do a couple cuts.

1. samurai 710 black - similar to ns but with a touch more room in the upper-thigh.
2. pbj 005 black - similar to ns up top but will give you more room from the knee down.
3. full count 1108 black.
4. skull 5010 black - a little lower rise then the ns.
5. somet 005 - lower rise and will have a little bit more room in the upper-thigh compared to the ns.


any of the above will work but will vary slightly from the ns cut. of the lot the somet or samurai is what i would recommend. the somets are a true low-rise so if do not like that go with the samurais. i have a pair of black knights (old 710 black cut) with about 2 years of wear and i get complimented on the fades all the time ... from total strangers. most people wanna know where they can buy. smile.gif

can't comment on Rising Sun...but it's true that most cuts of Jap repro brands mainly work on Asian frames (like Linda, Geisha)

which makes complete sense to me. after all, most of what they sell is for the asian market.

Hi, I am a noob who seeks to get a pair of entry level raw jeans. I am looking into this WESC model: http://wesc.com/product/38123.

 

The cut fits me very well and the style looks great, although the selvedge lines on the top of back pockets do concern me a little bit, not a deal killer anyway. However, does anybody know how these jeans go on the quality side? They are said to be using Japanese denim. How are they comparing to APC, Naked & Famous, Nudie or Levi's? (Well, I know Levi's is kinda lower end, but they seem to have some nice made in the US selvedge jeans).

How familiar are you with Rising Sun & Co.? Have you ever owned their stuff or handled it in person?

They use a mix of Cone Mills and Japanese selvage denim, and all of their jeans are sewn in their shop by a single craftsman. Their shop is about a 30-minute drive from where I live, and I've been able to stop in and check out their stuff pretty closely several times now. Their standard sanforized Cone Mills denim is a little bit lightweight for my taste, but the construction quality is excellent. When they use special denim such as their heavier Japanese stuff, their jeans come out really nice.

The only thing I don't like about them is that their prices are high, about $75-$100 per pair more than they probably should be.
