Oh nice, some of the Baja Samu cardigans. They're so damn comfortable. I love mine.

Yeah the Baja Samu cardigans look really nice. How warm are they? Too bad they are one size only... Would they be too small for a guy like me at 6.1''?
I'm 6'0 and mine fits just fine, it's a pretty oversized fit. The fabric is nice and heavy with a great drape to it, probably my favorite part of it. They're not super warm due to the design (oversized, big sleeves, open front) but not something I'd be wearing out in the summer.

I really like the new century denim, still skeptical about the fit but the color is definitely my favorite, does anyone know how to get one if I’m not living in Japan ?
I just saw CottonSheep stocking them, or proxy!

Dude that alone should be commended, i speak decently, but thats with too many years under my belt. I already speak two languages, and Japanese definitely doesn't come as easily. I can only hope my language skill becomes good enough to make long lasting connections out here.

If you are ever in Kyoto, send me a message, we can get some food/drink possibly
Drop me a mail or DM here and we can figure out a day that we can meet up and grab a coffee.

Thanks for the props guys I was out of town all weekend. Just got back and quite flattered by the support. Sending out half a dozen pairs of Mud Dyed CDs tomorrow. You should all be receiving by the end of the week.

Again its a blessing really to be able to help out those that appreciate it. It may be just a pair of jeans but I am really happy to help.

Just picked up the new no 9 Cisco westerner in a 48. Can anyone advise on proper rinsing and sizing? Sizing wise while raw, shoulders are still stiff, and arms are a bit long and roomy.. so shrinkage would be preferred, if that makes sense. A size down at 46 was just too small

Exactly this.

Just start wearing it and it'll be loose pretty soon. If you rinse or wash it it will be even stiffer and you'll have to loosen it up with wear anyway. You won't get any shrinkage to speak of, and most of it (if not all) will stretch out again with wear.

Re sizing. It's hard to say anything without fit pics. But it's Kapital you know, stuff shouldn't fit like orslow etc.

Looks good man, I kinda hope that they bring back the regular sized jackets rather than the long for century in the future. I like the vintage cropped look more. I always felt the Lee Rider shape looks better cropped.
