    Hellppp I dont know what kind of Pure Blues I have! :(

    Hoping any of you experts can help me.. I've had this pair of Pure Blues that were purchased from BiG about 5-6 years ago. They're a *very* slim fit with very little to no stretch. I've finally given up on ever being able to fit in them again as I think they're size 24 or maybe 25. (I'm a solid 26-27 these days). I never got to fully wear them in and I think I only soaked them maybe once. Barely any fading. Looking to auction them off as they're incredible and cost $300 new. The only problem is, everything on the labels is in Japanese so I don't know anything about the style, make up, or even the size for sure. Everything I'm seeing for ladies Pure Blues are currently around the 175 price range, so whatever I have must be discontinued.

    Does anyone know what these might be or have any good references for discontinued styles?
    These are really such a great pair (even the leather patch is gorgeous) so I want to make sure I can get them to someone who will appreciate them and can actually WEAR them!

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe ask over Sufu? Or do you have pics? This would help...

    I'm heading to Tokyo this october and am in dire need of some new denim. Can you give me some suggestions on a pair (make/model) that fit the following criteria:
    • Japanese brand
    • at least 15,5 oz denim (heavy duty)
    • slim, tapered fit. Not "painted on skinny", but I'm looking for jeans that are fitted around the thighs and legs.

    The reason I ask is I've previously bought "slim fit" japanese denim (for example momotaro 0701), which I considered a loose fit.

    GO!

    ^ after a bit of googling, Iron Heart model 666 looks promising fit-wise, super heavy duty too! Can you point out similar models from other brands?

    Hi guys,


    looking to get a new pair of raw denim, currently wearing Evisu 2000 no1 denim but the cut is too full for me especially the top block. Always been interested in IH but not sure what cut to chose... Was thinking about buying a pair of apc new standard to beat around but I'd rather and have some quality japanese denim.


    Also own a pair of LVC '67 505 and I like the slim-ish fit with a 7.5 or so leg opening.


    I'm a ~W31, debating between the 666 in sz 30 or the 301s in sz 30 as well...


    666' got a leg opening of 8" pre-soak and will go down to about 7.5-7.7 post soak but a bit hesitant as I've seen them looking quite skinny on some folks and the 301s' leg opening is already at 7" and sanforized...


    Any inputs or opinions to help? Sorry in advance for the redundant question. Other brand suggestions are also very much welcomed.


    Thanks

    y'all see the profile pic. these are Giles' signature model....from 2009, 1 of 1000. and they just floated up to ebay 4 weeks ago. original retail $450 USD got 'em for $140 USD. is there a group interest in seeing the details and fading updates? there are at least 5 things about these jeans that ive never seen anywhere else: selvedge id on the inner compartments of the back pockets, the compartments themselves, the front right pocket has a pocket inside, the left front pocket has a leather guard, and the 5th pocket has opening on both sides (as well as the top) for a tunnel big enough to hold a Swiss Army knife perpendicular to your leg. lemme know.
