    Are those Redwing GTs on the model?
    The crotch reinforcement looks great, are there visible threads on the outside?


    If you look VERY close you'll see some dark stitch, but you'd really have to be looking for it to see it..

    Is it cotton or poly stitching?

    It's cotton stitch thread, but the gauge is extremely thick, it's quite hard to break..

    The amount of neps on Sugarcane denim is insane! I'm in awe of them every time someone posts a new picture.... I don't think I've seen more neps on another pair of jeans ever.

    The cut and details to this also look cool. I'd like to get a pair, but I've already got way too many jeans as it is. Great work though.

    I think the jeans look fantastic. The details are superb. However, I've yet to see any impressive examples of this slack denim worn in. The fading appears to be very mild and rather uninteresting.

    That could not be any further from the truth.. these jeans look insane worn in..
    The pair i wore every day for six months ended up looking really nice..

    Keep in mind they were washed every two weeks, and 99% of people wouldn't be washing them nearly as often.

    I'd definitely love to see a pair with a more contrasted fade. Don't get me wrong, your pair looks great and the denim has a lot of character, but its not exactly what I'd be going for with them.

    Any details on the quantities produced of this jean? I must say that I'm a little surprised to see that other retailers will be carrying this model as well. It this one time arrangement, or will all subsequent collaborations have multiple retailers as well?

    Toyo conglomerate likes to sell their deminz to multiple retailers, as with the last Sugar Cane collabos (SEXSC02).

    The 40601 (a relaxed straight leg) is the only pair of jeans that used this denim (save for the ultra expensive reproduction hand loomed jeans), and the SEXSC06 will be the first modern cut using this slack denim.

    To buy or not to buy.... the 39" inseam is bugging me. I would hate to lost the chain stitch, but I don't have experience with how much they will shrink to have it hemmed before shipped to me.

    They are going to shrink to 36 inches. I'll be keeping these at full lenth, and cuffing. I hope to be wearing these a week from now.
