    But they do carry Loopwheeler stuff which was interesting.

    $66 japanese selvage denim (40% off)
    I don't know about shipping from that store, but I put one of those in my shopping basket and tried to check out (for fun) and I can choose country, so I dunno. Worth a try for someone maybe. I'd give it a shot if I wasn't broke. [​IMG]


    Those are jeans looks nice wonder what the quality is like.

    they're loopwheeler, aren't they? which means they're probably top-notch

    EDIT: okay i've just been informed they probably aren't LW. thanks, digital_denim

    what do you think about kapital?


    I would really like to see some Kapital in the flesh. I've only glanced at their catalog.

    I've heard its another company founded by ex 45rpm.

    Any Sugarcanes (or other fantastic Japanese brands) with a fit similar to a RB1 or a RB6?

    Looking for a fuller cut as.. let's face it, Japanese people don't have black man's ass, whereas I do. [​IMG]

    You have an RB6, Kronik? How is the fit? True to size?

    Snug on me, tightest jeans I've ever owned actually.. but probably relaxed for a lot of people on this forum. I have large thighs and a large ass, hence a large seat measurement.

    kronik, Sugarcanes are cut very generously in the seat and thighs, you might want to try them!

    There seem to be two different versions of PBJ XX-003, one with a pink selvedge line and one with a blue selvedge line.

    Does anyone know anything about this?

    If you have these jeans, which color line do you have, where did you buy them, and were they bought dry or one-wash?

    I don't have a large azz or thighs like kronik but what jeans fit like the rb1 and RRDS boys? I like mid-rise and slight bootcut.

    I remember the initial ones coldrice was buying had pink selvage. Then later on, I guess in the next batch, they were blue. AFAIK...

    It seems PBJ switched to blue selvedge in all their new lines / production batches. I think my xx-003 were from the first batch that had the blue selvedge. Maybe PBJ wanted a color that goes along with their name.

    I remember one of D'artisan models used the exact selvedge fabric used by PBJ and had the same pink selvedge line. Maybe PBJ wanted to differentiate?

    Here is an image of the 103 from Lightning Denim Indigo Master Magazine:


    [​IMG]

    I have been wearing Sd103's daily for the past nine months and the fade is a beautiful inky blue. They are a low waist and described as a slim fit but they're not that slim really.

    Sorry its upside down. You can get lightning magazine at superdenim.co.uk now

    I have a pair of SD-103's in my closet collecting dust, what's the opinion on the fly pulling so you can see the edge of a few buttons while wearing them?

    I had a few people comment that it looks like my flys open so I stopped wearing them, I'd sure like to go back to them [​IMG]

    Not bought any of it but it kinda seems like they are just jumping on the "japanese denim" bandwagon. I vaguely remember seeing the price at about £50-60?? but as most people on here will say, just pay slightly more and you'll know what you're getting.

    Just some quick thoughts, I owned quite a few pairs of cheap denim in my life time and some that I now feel i paid to much for. Few years ago one of my best friends tuned me into Japanese denim... I went out and purchased some samurai S634XX II Ltd and I've never looked back and wore them as often as I could. It does take some getting use to wearing dry denim, but it has been well worth the wear and the wait. To see some good lines and the story of my own denim wear. When it comes down to it the quality is well worth the money. I'm now working on my second pair of Sugarcanes. You get what you pay for.

    Does anyone have any experience with how Eternal 811s fit relative to say, APC Rescues? I compared the actual measurements from my 33 Rescues to the size 34 and 36 Eternal 811 numbers posted on BiG's website and they are pretty similar with the exception of the waist, which has stretched in my APCs. I would like to achieve a 36" waist... will the 34 Eternals stretch in the waist at all or should I size up to the 36?
