    Those arctuates are tacky as fuck... But hell, you can always remove them. I'm not a fan of (loud) backpocket stitching anyway.

    Not many photos of worn in Strike Gold jeans, here's a few new ones by a.khan12390

    Strike Gold SG1105 5 months+10 days

    That's some pretty serious crotch wear for a pair of jeans not yet six months old...

    I'm quite active and have been wearing mine for 5 months and i'm nowhere near that in terms of crotch-wear.

    The Strike Gold - The Pure Gold Jean Collection

    Strike Gold is quickly turning into a shop favorite with our staff and repeat clients across our three stores. The couple from Okayama are nailing every fit and denim style and they've only just begun.

    We visited them at their studio in Kurashiki City (Okayama Prefecture) a few months ago only to see them possess a passion that's rarely seen even in Japan these days among the denim and vintage-style clothing brands. They're creating such beautiful jeans, shirts, and leather accessories and it seems to come so naturally for them.

    Strike Gold has done two new jean styles, one is a redone version of their popular XXX5 Slim Straight fit and they've also introduced a new Slim Tapered model (SG2109). They've done these with one of the most original looking styles of denim we've seen.
    They start with a pure indigo dyed thread for the warp (top threads) and a beige mud dyed thread for the weft (bottom threads). The jean looks like an indigo colored denim jean but has a slight beige hue to it from the weft threads peaking through the indigo warp threads. They've upped the weight to 17oz and it comes in loomstate form, due to the abrasive nature of the denim when raw the jean will age faster than most jeans and yield an high contrast fade with normal wear.

    Along with the new SG2105 and SG2109 jeans we've received a full restock of the leather belts and the SG1105 jean which has turned into one of the most requested jeans at our shops.

    All these jeans and belts are available now at Self Edge SF and in our online store, SENY and SELA will have these jeans starting March 7th. Check the online store product pages for more details on the jeans, hi-res photographs, and measurements. Fit photos of the SG2109 are coming next week.

    Kiya - (or anyone for that matter)

    How do the cuts run in comparison to Pure Blue Japans in general? I'm just getting out of a relationship with an 007 cut which I passionately loved, and yet is barely too tight in the thighs. Would something of comparable waist measurement in SG's generally run bigger in the thigh than a PBJ equivalent?

    the SGs i just ordered just showed up at my neighbor's house. I'll report back when they show up. The SG1101's have really loose thighs in comparison to the 007's , but they're a lot looser from the knee down as well. Same for the 1103EX's. Dunno how the XX05 and XX09 cuts compare with PBJ, those are too slim for me. Also, you could just get the 009's and have them tapered from the lower leg, same denim, bigger thighs, and same lower leg measurements after taper

    To make sure you're getting what you think you're getting i'd use the measurements provided on our site to compare to the measurements of the jeans you own.
    We have 4 different fits from Strike gold.

    Yeah - i get that. The one I mentioned above looks like it meets the requirements - a slim straight slightly roomier than a xx005-7 PBJ model.

    They've sold extremely fast at our SF store and online, SENY and SELA still have decent size runs if you'd like to place a phone order, shipping is still free to you.

    Those actually look pretty good Nomy. I was initially really put by the name because Strike Gold sounds like some casino you'd find off strip in Vegas. Looks like a really good cut though.
