    All Kapital fit from Sunday (WAYWT cross-post). The scarves/mufflers are bold but beautiful, and fantastic close up:

    Not the best photo of the jeans, but here's the Century denim in the Oakbilly fit:

    @ManofKent that fit really works. I like that Thunderbird coverall more than I thought I would from looking at product shots. Cisco cut looks nice here. I may give that a try. The pricing on Kapital denim direct from their e-shop is extraordinary if the jeans are any good at all, which I assume they are. And unless they really go overboard on shipping.

    @Fenderplyr Oh. That may be the problem then. I didn't try to get through a transaction, so I didn't realize this. I guess that's where proxies come in then. Still could be a pretty good deal though.

    Nice fit.

    You can't buy directly from their shop, but it's straightforward using zenmarket.jp (and presumably other proxies). You pay around 1000 - 1200 yen (about 9-10 USD) for internal shipping and proxy costs, then there is the international shipping (not cheap, but not horrendous and you can pick speed/cost of service).

    Frank, great look and fit on those jeans. I love them, but can't seem to find a single pair of Kapital jeans with a longer inseam. Anyone know of a model of Kapital jeans with a net length of 34.5-35" (34 is too short ) after washing and air dry?

    Have you ever been hit with customs?

    I'm no expert, but haven't come across Kapital jeans in longer lengths. Dieworkwear posted a link to BandannaAlmanac's blog earlier in the the thread and he'd be able to tell you for certain.

    Every time I've ordered using global.rakuten - UK customs have got very tight on picking up international orders.

    @FrankCowperwood how are you liking the okabilly fit? looks good there.


    I'm a fan of the lining print on the new season stuff... tempted to get something just for the lining

    @Lorcan7 I do like it. It's got quite a high rise, and particularly so for denim, and a taper that I like. I did size up based on Standard & Strange's advice and the fit is comfortable. Just washed them so I'll see what effect that has.

    @GusW the in seam is a challenge. This pair was 33.5 pre wash. I'll measure again after cold wash air dry and see what it is now. Assume it will be close. I don't need all of that really but I prefer to start with it so I can cuff and maybe still hem later.

    Really nice cut.



    Looks great in denim. Perfect size too.

    My long-length version in gold Katasaguri arrived yesterday, and I'm already tempted by a standard length in a different fabric to go with it,,,
