probably isnt available in most stores but if it is, its in very limited sizes. this collab is fairly old by now (or at least it feels like it). Maybe check tate + yoko and i think the show room in toronto might have one pair in a larger size too. I have no idea for american stores

Any more ideas?

I don't think the jh denim is the same as the oni collabo..
post #12424 of 13369
as great as the jh is, the oni collab is better. more character in the fabric imo.
there's not many ideas people can give if your choice is between lht and oni. you dont hv to wear them that skinny, so getting the oni in that size you looking at should be fine looking at the measurements. like i said, just wear them straight or cold soak if you're worried it will shrink too much.

^ Might I suggest an alternative? Instead of hunting down an old, hard to find model in a specific size, why not have a look at the limited run Okayama Spirit from the new collection? 16oz unsanforized denim from Okayama (hence the name).

 

The JH really is just the Oni collab material which has been sanforized.  Both Bahzad from NF and Jay Doughten from Blue Owl have confirmed as much.  If you have your heart set on an unsanforized fabric, the OS's should be a nice, more readily available choice.

Have they?

That's crazy because I thought the Onis are even slubbier..

It's not that I narrowed down my search to the Oni collabo it's just the fact that alternatives are lacking.
Until you answered I haven't had the Okayama Spirit in mind.

The hunt for the Onis wouldn't be that tough, I'm in contact with a shop who still got some of the Onis in stock.

Thanks again!

Anyone have the new Midnight Weird Guys? Debating between getting a pair of those or the Elephant 3's. I need a good pair of tonal stitching deep indigo jeans.

I don't have the Midnight Weird Guys nor do I think you can even buy them yet, but I do have the E3s. I've had them for a month and half or so and they are fading really nicely. If you want pics, I can put some up later.

If you can get the Oni's in your size, do it.  I wish I had.

 

Completely my opinion, but I feel the Oni x NF is the best quality denim that NF has ever put out.  Might get bitched out for saying that, but I think that it's incredible, especially being unsanforized.

When I met brendon and Bahzad. Bahzad explained to me how the unsanforized Japanese heritage (used by oni collab) is one of the most beautiful denim fabric n&f offers.

Why is it no one ever mentions the japan heritage 2's? I love this denim.

Thank you. I would like that very much.

It seems Tate + Yoko received the first of the new Slim Guys. Checking the new measurements, they basically lost one inch in the waist and in the leg opening. Will have to try these when I get home to Montréal.

 

On a related matter, are there any impressions on the Lyocell Selvedge?It's the first of the new Slims, but it was released as a WG before.

How do the E3s compare to the E2s? (if you have/seen E2s)

post #12435 of 13369

I'd have to start with the denim being a much dark deeper blue. It almost looks like an indigo/black jean but it's not. It fades a pretty bright blue and I can't wait to see how it gets in a few months. It's a little less heavy than the E2s but it's not something you'll notice when you first put them on. They are just as heavy and stiff as ever.
