Has anyone tried any of the recent iterations of the 14 oz denim 5P monkey Cisco jeans? Any comment on fit and sizing?

On-line measurements at different shops show a variation of about 2 inches in the waist for the same size. For example, the size 36 is listed anywhere from 34” to 36” measured. Quite a difference.

Are the sweatshirts and Tenjiku bandana huge T really as cropped as the measurements suggest? They only seem to make them up to size 3 and their measurements show it as 26" long. It'd barely cover my belt line.
So I just measured one of my huge Ts -- and from the back neckline to the bottom is 29". That was a size 3. So probably the measurements are wrong.

Yeah that's what I thought happened, heh. But what don't you like about washed denim? Are you an I-only-wear-denim-I've-faded-myself-through-wear-raw-denim kinda guy?

Naw, I don't believe in that gate keeping BS, most of those raw denim boiz have the ugly death metal band name fades I hate.

I just don't love light blue all that much, I have raw denim and haven't gotten a single one down to the light blue section, I do have a vintage jacked that is so faded, it's almost white though, but it has a lot of dark indigo patches that add some visual complexity.

Maybe I'm not a fan of pastel-ish colors? Dunno, I'd have to see it in person me thinks.

Since I mentioned the sukiyaki shirt in here and the should I buy thread, together with pics from Standard and Strange, their whole stock has sold out. Just a week ago they had a size 2, 3 and 4 in stock.

Coincidence? I mean, it is a $500+ shirt after all. 🤔
