    Current rotation:

    Two pairs of Uniqlo greenline Selvedge.

    I'm interested to see what I can get out of them when I finally do
    cave and wash.

    Occasional pair of LVC 33's and LVC 37's. Long term projects. NO
    rushing.

    Sidelined: PRPS unwashed purple selvedge.

    Great material shame about everything else. Still deciding what to
    do about them. Thinking Reconstructive surgery.

    Forecast: Chatuchak Thai fakes.

    My FAVs during the summer:

    RRDS (70% of the time and still my favorite)
    Sugarcane 1947 (30% of the time). My new LVC47(501xx) will replace the SC1947 untill winter starts (They feel lighter than the SCs and they're slimmer).

    I also have:
    APC Rescue (Formal Jeans), PBJ XX-003 (Another future winter project).

    Wish list:

    1) 45RPM Sorahiko.
    2) The new limited edition RRDS "Made In Japan" (If the fabric will be Sugarcane1947 like).
    3) A pair of LHT D'artisans (SD003 or SD001).

    I really am a 'one pair of jeans' man as of right now.

    I have my SC 1947's, and aside from that, I have worn another pair of jeans only once since I got them (it was summer so I sometimes went with bermuda). I only have some Buffalos and BR.

    I should receive some 5EP straight cut dark worn next week though. Later on I'll probably look for some RB or APC NS.

    Current fav pair of jeans are my LVC 47s. I recently lost about an inch in my waistline and was able to shrink them down to 30X32 so that they fit. I absolutely love the fit and feel of these jeans. Basic.

    In rotation right now are my jeans shops 4/7 of the week and my 47s 3/7 of the week. I will start on my S0505s sammies soon though. I don't know exactly when, but I am digging the slim fit of these 47s. I feel like Brando in them. I'll feel more like brando when I get the Frye brando lace boots in cognac.

    5EP Low Down Boot about 70% of the time.
    The remainder is split between Nudie Slim Jim Black Dry and APC Cures/NS.

    Denime XX 90% of the time.
    LVC Japan 47 501's as back up.
    Waiting in the wings: LVC 55's and a pair of Full Count 1101's that need hemming.

    pics please!
    Im looking for a pair of regular-relaxed pair of japanese jeans and the denime xx and fullcount 1101s are on my shortlist. How do they fit compared to each other? Also how about the inseams, are they 36" after washing?

    Both are a similar with the Full Counts being slimmer with less of an anti-fit, the denim has a much lighter feel but is very nice, an ideal summer weight jean. My preference is for the Denimes, the denim has a very rugged feel to it and the finishing and detailing on them is first rate. The inseam on the Denimes ends up at about 34" after washing while with Full Count's vary with size, everything over a 32" waist comes with a 36" leg that shrinks to around 34" although for some reason they feel/fit longer. Another thing to watch out with the Full Counts is they come up a bit big in the waist, I went one size down but probably could of got away with two.
