I guess I'm going to cuddle with the first pair of selvedge jeans I own tonight. They fit better than any pants I've traded on here! Thanks for the extras as well. So excited to have this 'first' for me :)

 

You too? I got a pair of uniqlo selvedge from barrel awhile back and they also fit better than anything else ever on my legs. Need to get another pair of jeans, five days a week is wearing the crotch area down. (been thinking about the denim reweaver you recommended)

I think all my pants are like 2 sizes big in the waist since pants with my waist size always feel weird on me, so I end up with a droopy waist but a good fit everywhere else. These feel great though and will be better when they stretch out a bit.

I'll probably pick up another pair or two over the next little bit as well in addition to the awesome jeans that @size 38R is sending me! So it begins. Damn you guys! :)

 

Edit: The weirdest thing is that these are sized a 34. Nataku, I know you'd rinsed them but do they fit that small usually?

I see you've discovered why this thread is so awesome with its awesome members! :fonz:

@jdrizzy  These look simillar to the jeans i kopped for RTC.  really good stuff.  

and as described to Barrel, T.K is the paul smith of japanese fashion. he has been around for a long time, and is perhaps Japan's most acclaimed designer domestically. 


^^ The quirky mix of CM and SW&D  that he really pioneered, is now  "The popular style"  in Japan. his influence can be seen every time you turn on a television to see the celebrities mimiking this trend that creates no division between the two supposed sides of menswear.           -  my own fits owe a lot to his design philosophy.  

 

his impact on men's fashion in popular culture i would say extends further Than Yohji Yamamoto. because Yohji is seen as more "Fashion" orientated.   like a concept, where as T.K makes stuff that is worn by the masses, all day, everyday.  and in this context, he IS the Paul Smith of Japanese fashion. a hugely infuential, and underrated designer. with a strong following in modern japanese menswear.   

 

- i would like to think this man (an actual expert) likes my fits, more so than the self proclaimed experts we see on here from time to time.  I play by T.K's Rules. :bigstar:

when in Japan, Dress like the Japanese do. -eh, flying monkey?

@size 38R, the PM Only method? Is that for removing stains from ties?

I am most definitely not feminine and I used it for a month or so without comment from my co-workers. And if it was an effeminate touch, they most certainly would have mocked me.

Fabric+stains?    PM only method = no stains.

still waiting for GmmcL to test it on pee stained flannel pants.

 

if you don't know what i'm talking about, pm me.:)

Perhaps I will indulge in three button cuffs at a later time.
