    How sure are you that it's Japanese Denim? From what I've read on this thread at $25 USD a pop for FOB, it sounds like it's Chinese or possibly Turkish.
    Denim news says that they are Japanese denim.

    So I've read, but for somebody who claims;

    $25 USD FOB seems a little suspect. If it's true though, I want to know which mill he's getting it from! [​IMG]

    If the Big Slub is in my size I'm all over it... need some streaky denim in my life for sure.

    Not really understanding the hate for this company right now, in terms of price point it's competing with APC and Nudie and it's offering products that neither of it's rivals can boast right now.

    I dont think its hate. There are some concerns.
    I broke down the math and since it is beign sewn in Canada and the denim comes from Japan it could work. The hardware and lack of hardware is not japanese and most likely from China. Not saying that there aren't good mills in china there are.
    He wouldn't disclose much info that's why I started this thread.
    Is it worth me buying or not?
    Since you guys and super future are the bulk of raw denim consumers is it worth me placing an order?

    At the price point I would definitely consider the big slub.

    If I were looking to buy jeans right now I would probably pick up a pair of the Big Slub Indigo Selvedge.. Unfortunately I have too much denim as it is..

    BiG [if true] is a big endorsement.

    I would go with the Big Slub Indigo Denim. I think for under $200 it's worth trying out. It's hard to tell just from pics on the website.. I like the white stitching and the streaking. It's something different than the yellow and orange stitching KMW or Nudies. They would match grey and black nicely.

    Yeah, the pics are kind of noninformative. I'd like to see details on the Big Slub, and the Thick Slim. From what little I can see, the Thick Slim 21oz looks like it will be a thick, slubbier denim than the Ironhearts, right? I'd guess they are going to be right at $200.....

    I can't pull up the pics here, but is it just me or do the Thick Slim's look similar to the ESEF Sky's?

    I'd try a bootcut if they had that available.
