Warehouse 900XX came in today from BEARS Tokyo and they fit perfectly. I am a true 34" waist and shockingly had to buy a size 36 (Apparently I am a massive man in the land of the rising sun). S&S measurements were dead on. Shipped on 11/17 and arrived today so about 10 days in transit.

For $140 shipped, you really can't beat this especially when S&S is charging $230 and Self Edge $295! Also, if you are in NYC, ONLY Self Edge will carry Warehouse, so there's a $65 premium because Self Edge likes to protect its accounts.

I'm impressed with the quality considering the price point. If their black version gets back in stock, I'll def pick up one of those too.

Don't think I've posted these yet but got some Freewheeler RB denim a while ago, got a Rail Car hem and just now taking them on a maiden voyage. Really liking adding black into my wardrobe as well going for slim straight instead of the wider fitting pants I'd been getting.

Yeah TCB always had great value compared to most Japanese repro brands.

Check in with the Warehouse 1001xx in banner denim. These have 3-4 months of wear, and have probably 6 washes so far. Really loving these. They have gotten uniformly lighter in color and the fades are starting to come in. A great straight cut

My Warehouse "Duck Diggers" are my favorite pair of jeans that I own. However, every time I think of "Duck Digger" in my head it sounds like Ice-T yelling "Cop Killer" at the start of that eponymous song. 😅

Does anyone know why the Freewheelers and Real McCoys Alpaca lining are both softer and finer than Buzz Rickson and Toys McCoys?

Those Freewheelers look great on you. I love mine but do have an issue with the back rise being too long, creating an unflattering profile from the side/back

Just recently received my BR N-1 and haven't noticed it being extra scratchy, though I've comfortably worn wool for many years. Charles over at History Preservation seems to think that BR has the most accurate reproduction, maybe they didn't have access to or the technology for the finer wools that are available now?

Its not scratchy, its the piling is thicker on the BR and TM vs Freewheelers RMs where you can see its finer. Maybe thats how the originals were.

Ah, okay. I think BR makes two versions, one heavier with thicker pile than the other. This is the one I got from HP, nice and cozy!

That's the main reason I'm constantly rambling about them. The sizing is kind of finicky but man, the product is fantastic and it's not even expensive!
