Ive never really felt any japanese denim before. They have the Sugarcane Okinawa 1wash for $310 at a local boutique. I was wondering if all of the japanese denim(Samurai,Flathead,Skull,etc..)have the same softness feel to them after the 1st soak or is there a specific model of jeans that may have the same feel for a smaller price?

uh. no, not really.
They're all gonna feel different for the most part. Some jeans are thicker abd heavier, made differently and so on. They'll range.

well, it probably shrinks all around. usually i wash it hot and dry it hot. make sure to turn the shirt inside out.

How exactly are jeans hemmed?


you measure your inseam, measure the jeans and add seam allowences and cut them off. then you sew them hem back with a sewing machine.

itll take longer and probably wont be as crisp if they were tighter.

to speed things up a bit, spray the front & the back of the knees, and the front with starch to help set creases.

bought some Gap Morrisons
i haven't worn them yet
wondering if i should do a pre-soak
not necessarily to shrink, but more to remove the excess indigo
after trying on like 5 different pairs, my fingers were all blue

also wondering, what's the bleeding like on the morrisons?

it wot hurt to soak them... bleeding should lessen with a soak.
my mom bought me a pair of levi's 501's (not stf) but they had honeycombs on them already.

im not a big fan on honeycombs, but what is a way i can get rid of them.

thanx in advance!smile

you cant get rid of them unless you wash the jeans untill they are a solid baby blue color... id say 30 or 40 wash cycles in a row maybe??? i dont think that would even do it honestly.

nope... they wont shrink past tag size.

they shrink to 3 or 4 inches smaller than tag size.

what are you trying to spend... like top dollar amount? i dont like apc denim... but it sounds like you want cures. new cures are even tighter.

id say get some new cures in your true waist size and sag them a bit... i think tapered jeans look much better like that than worn high and tight.

another option would be the john bull sewingchop 008 i think... low rise skinny jeans from japan... good price. rise is pretty low if you can deal with that. they are on blueingreensoho.com/site/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=2093&category_id=&manufacturer_id=7&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=28

never seen em in person. i prefer japanese brands myself... i think the attention to detail is higher and the attention to branding is lower.

email or call gordon at blue in green... tell him what you are looking for, and he will have some choices for you.

i dont think so, but i dont know thier stock or owner.... so i may be a bit biased.

just looked thru denimbars site... prices are high. if i were you i would go ahead and email gordon, tell him what youre looking for, and he can help you out.
