    Hey everyone, this seems to be the only Oni Jeans thread.

    I just picked up a pair of these today:
    http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28
    Hopefully they'll stretch; I don't plan on washing them for a long time.

    I tried looking for an official site but couldn't find any. All I know is I like the cut and measurements and that they are made in Japan. They also don't seem to be too popular here; was wondering why that might be.


    Hopefully you're going to give them that initial soak/wash?

    Sorry to break it to you, but these aren't sanforized and will shrink quite a bit.

    Hey, I plan on washing them later; I don't really understand the reasoning behind soaking before wearing. edit: I mean besides the change in measurements; is there anything that goes wrong with the jeans if you don't soak before hand?

    yup, i'm glad they'll shrink

    Well, if you actually do put any wear into them, there is a pretty big chance that it will move when they are washed and your new creases won't line up with the old.

    I don't understand the point of not soaking them.

    Anyway, Oni is Japanese and I believe is the in house brand of the store Hinoya.

    Funny... everytime I thought of Oni I thought of those $1000 pair of jeans they have, so I never gave the brand the time of day.

    But ever since reading this thread, I now know that their both affordable and have great cuts. I'm liking the Oni red fits.

    You like your jeans pretty relaxed? The blue is the more normalish straight fit.

    oh, didn't think of that [​IMG] I thought jeans faded better before a wash which was why everyone didn't watch for a whole year or whatever I thought since denim stretches with wear and shrinks with a wash, I could stretch before shrinking instead of the usual shrink before stretching.

    Unsanforized jeans are what can be referred to as shrink-to-fit. They will lose roughly 1.5-2 inches in the waist, 3 inches in the inseam, and around a .5 inch in other measurements.

    You are supposed to soak these before you start wearing them, they probably won't fit otherwise. Either that or you screwed up on the sizing and they won't fit after the soak :p

    They were on sale at 50% off at fit me to a T - perfectly before soak (other sizes were out).

    I wouldn't mind a shrink in the waist but I want to wait till I stretch it out a bit; not sure if I'm making sense.

    My assumptions: wearing stretches jeans
    washing will shrink jeans
    = cancel each other out

    The only part that wouldn't fit after a shrink is the thighs so I'm trying to get them as large as possible pre-soak.

    the weather is cold where I live and my life style means I won't be breaking any seams or anything so I'm not worried about weakening the jeans

    does this make any sense?

    That's a bad assumption. They are gonna shrink to the same point, regardless of whether you stretched them out first or not.

    Btw, do you what the difference in the kabuki-vedge model and the normal vedge is? (What does vedge even mean?)

    Here are some pics, are these too tight? I usually don't tuck. Waist fits great and hasn't stretched, even after a warm soak and wash - not sure why. [​IMG] [​IMG] BEFORE PICS: front [​IMG] back [​IMG] side [​IMG] angle [​IMG] AFTER PICS: (2 weeks, 5 days of light wear and 1 hour of light biking) front [​IMG] back [​IMG] side [​IMG] so much discolouring here =/ [​IMG]

    those slippers.... [​IMG] not bad boots though, what are they? and the jeans look/fit really well imo. [edit: they do look like they're riding up. just that picture or do they regularly do that? if it's normal, is that not extremely uncomfortable?]

    They look a size small. They're riding up your ass. If the waist in a size up is a little loose, consider a more relaxed cut

    I changed the back photo. If I stand with my fit close together my thighs rub together. That might have been what caused the crotch fade. Does it still look like the jeans are riding up my ass? The slippers are from a 4 star hotel in China (In China, the stars in a hotel are vastly overrated so it was fairly terrible). They are very cheap. The boots are RMWilliams Craftsman I think, the wholecut ones.

    hmm I've searched through all the threads and shops and haven't found a jean with a sub 30 inch waist and 12+ inches of thigh room, even in the relaxed cuts. This is the first pair of jeans I didn't near to wear a belt but they look really tight imo. (this one is a hair under 30 inches at 29.80 and 12 inches of thigh space probably because I stretch it out - 12.5 would be a dream). But I'm still looking. http://item.rakuten.co.jp/hinoya/oni-57tk/ デニムで、防縮加工、ねじれ加工も施していない為に洗うとカラダにフィットし、キレイな天然藍 Can anyone tell me what that means?
