They're out of my size in every single Warehouse denim so no luck there.

I am eyeballing TCB's S40 denim as an alternative as the measurements and price look pretty good.

Now that is one high rise. I've never handled TCB but everything I've read seems positive

I have those. True high rise. Think over the hips high rise, like vintage chinos and military fatigues.

Here is a few shots of me wearing them :

A friend of mine is going to Tokyo in February and I'm thinking of asking him to proxy me some stuff while he's there. Any suggestions on good shops that are there? I'd like to give him a big ass list of things in case my size isn't available etc

@schraiber @Jerkstore The list is dependant on what you like. I can just name names but I don't know that it's going to be useful. Do you want to start me off by telling me brand aesthetic you like?

---

Also, I bought a pair of Century denim jeans online for cheap cheap. Then Rakuten did a 10% off campaign and I decided to buy a second pair in a different colorway.

Here they are



So before any strech occurs they are kind of eating away at ****** crack, but it's not uncomfortable so I presume it will even itself out. I find the straight leg cut is insanely good. I did not expect to like the cut this much.

Honestly, in the day or two I looked into it, it just seems best to go to the brand stores I am into (TRM, Iron Heart) and make a stop at Hinoya for some more variety. I think by the time I get there I will be focused on buying as much TRM as I can. Going in October also means I can buy the FW23 Iron Heart for a nice discount. Otherwise I was going to be a fly on the wall and mark down whatever people suggest and research if it's worth going. I pushed Tokyo from 4 days to 6 days so my wife/partner/baby momma doesn't get pissed if I spend a day looking for reprowear. She agreed it was smart.

I love them. The cut is mid rise straight, but it's not baggy. I sized "up" to 36 from my usual western pant size, but it's the right size for me given measurements.

Yeah RMC and Iron Heart will be the deepest discounts you can get. Those brands are somewhat harder to proxy than most other.

I am too timid to try a proxy. I just bother a friend who lives in China. If you live in the states, by far the best place to buy Iron Heart is ironheartgermany.com. Lost&Found in Vancouver has become my sport for RMC.

They have a Vancouver store? I thought they were only in Toronto.
