Also, just ordered the rainbow core wg and a pair of ub204, the ub201 is probably my 2nd favourite pair of jeans after I replaced the shitty buttons. My retired Lvc 505 1967 were unbeatable though...
High hopes for these new ones!
Are there any before afters of the rainbows and ub204 jeans? I cant find any...
what's the problem with the okayamas? the fabric looks interesting IMO. I'm interested but have some doubts regarding the inseam. only 34" and it will shrink after soak. if i want minimal shrinkage can i just soak them in cool water for 15 minutes or so?
from blueowl blog:
while the fabric is unsanforized, it has been hot iron pressed which removes much of the shrinkage. You can expect .25"-.5" in the waist and .5"-.75" in the inseam.
from tate and yoko:
Expect 1" of shrinkage in the waist, and 2" in length when soaked/washed for the first time.
there's also sizing difference between here: http://shop.tateandyoko.com/products/naked-famous-super-skinny-guy-okayama-spirit
