    Anyone have any experience with their stuff? I've been looking for some non-denim pants, and these have always caught my eyes:

    They seem like a good alternative to khakis. I also heard that new shop Blue on Green in NYC carried Johnbull. anyone see these and for how much? I know I can order direct from super-rag as an option.

    ...at Ciao Panic in Kyoto. They're awesome -- loose weave, low waisted, very comfortable, slim fitting trousers. My wife loves em. I highly recommend them...

    Thanks Sash.
    What size did you get and what size do you normally wear. I know they only come in even sizes.

    I got 34s, and they run true to size. Slim fitting and quite low rise. I'm happy [​IMG]

    Those are awfully nice. So there is a source in the USA for these? Any web shops that ship to the USA?

    I heard Blue on Green (in?) carried Johnbull, but not sure what they carried of theirs, since Johnbull makes a crapload of stuff. But you can order it from:
    http://www.rakuten.co.jp/earthmarket/464624/
    or super-rag
    both ship to the US (you save on middleman costs).

    See the superfuture thread:
    http://www.superfuture.com/city/supe...&topicID=12014

    for more info.

    The quality and texture on them look nice.


    Thanks, appreciate it.

    Cool! Finally a thread about john bull! I don't own any of their clothing YET, but I must say that from browsing japanese web-stores on rakuten, the garments look fantastic! The pants and jackets they make are the perfect combo of old-school, vintage, workwear, military- styles all rolled into one! High quality, heavy duty cotton twills, with nice details such as cinch-backs,and rivets, and cargo pockets. M-65 repros made from denim, heavy canvas fabrics, etc...just all-around nice materials being used in the production process.

    And this store in NYC "blue in green" def. knows whats up, so if they are stocking John Bull you know its gotta be good! I will be buying a pair of john bull khakis/twill pants soon, the perfect alternative to wearing jeans!

    Looking at a pair still, but I'm a size 31...trying to decide which size (30 or 32) to go with. I guess since their not denim, they won't be stretching much and I should size up?

    yeah, blue in green has a bunch of john bulls. they fit great. they also have some stitch's which i think fit even better. very nice stuff if you want an alternative to repros.
