Cisco is basically a high rise tapered cut with room in the thighs.

I know that blue button shop have charts on most models, but the Okabilly was not there.
So cisco is more of a traditional 1947 501 design? Whereas okabilly is more slim fit?

I'm forgetting what cut I have for my century denim. I think it's Cisco which at size 34 it basically is almost 1 for 1 the same as my size 34 vintage lee riders (70s era with talon zip). It's like a 12 inch rise, roomy thighs with a slight taper.

The okabilly, has a super long rise, you can wear it high or sorta like a drop crotch. At least that's how it fits with my okabilly denim. Then again it maybe called okagilly. The fit names all confuse me haha.

And I still need to size up one right? If I normally take a size 33-34 waist, then I should do a size 36 in the 1-2-3s? Or even a size 38 to account for shrinkage?

Of course, but I was thinking about shrinkage. These are unsanforized right?

Mine shrinked very little. They are currently at the tailor so I can't measure, but they are sewn in a way that they don't really shrink.

Most sites got "expect minimal shrink", and I did not experience any on mine that did not stretch back.

With my pairs of Kakishibu and Asagi neither shrunk even a little. I wash everything cold. Also I generally wear a 32 but sized up to a 34. True waist size fluctuates between a 33.5 and 34 inches.

The okagilly fit I could've went down to a 32 tho, it ended up being loose and I took it in a bit at a local tailor that can easily do denim.

How much are 1-2-3 and no 7 century denims if purchased from retailer in Japan?

How come there are none on the Kapital website? Are they a seasonal item?

IIRC they're 38,800 JPY + tax. I haven't seen any century denim on their website (nor their century denim international webstore) for a while but when I visited last year they seemed to have all the century denims stocked in physical stores. Seems to be something that only can be picked up in store now but not sure if that's the case.

Copped this long sleeve tee just to mess around with this new Ashbury dyed stuff. Super cool in person!

Now I'm gonna have to buy more Kap tie dye

Any idea what the no 7 and 5 cost in Japan?

I remember they were like 28k yen. Although I can’t remember correctly but they were definitely in the below 300 dollars range.

As far as I remember they have been an in store only item. They are easily available at most Kapital stores. The issue is that Kapital is only sold in Kapital stores so you won’t find them online unless they are used on yahoo auctions or something.
