Wow, incredible pair of jeans. Just Great!
oohh lord....those fullcount were outta this world 3rd seriously......
tnx, guys! it [finally] got to grail-ville... momos will be taking the wheel from here :-Dn.
Just join the ranks of Fullcount owners
Been following Fullcount since the contest, and always wanting to own it. Finally, made up my mind to get one and here it is - Fullcount 1108.
Living up to my expectation, the denim quality is awesome. Comparing with Samurais, 1108 is thin, haha. But in a good way, I like a variety of options to choose from.
The best feature about it is, the hidden potential, like a sleeper, nothing fancy, no hype....Just jeans
So sweet man
^^welcome to the club, Obbi! 'hope you enjoy them as much as i did mine. they're actually back in rotation__ soft&comfy, well-worn jeans for those hot & humid days
Smart choice jamie:shock:.......need to wear mine more
James - Now dont get me wrong on this one buddy, but I think these are your best fitting jeans so far!the fit is just perfect...great great purchase my friend! ;-)
I can't judge, if they're the best fitting pair, but I can't imagine a better one. Fit is spot on.
3rd, prior to purchase, I have read your post and study the fit on you and your measurements. One of the coolest reference I can find on the forums
Rafa, no offense, I think so too, LOL!
Thanks hippo and Max!
^well...then it`s all good ;-)
As a rotation pair, for such hot summer. Samurai washed and hung for drying.
FC 1108 was soaked and dried, wearing now.
(sorry, not the best lighting)
looks really nice , I like the mid weight denim with nice texture.
Got myself the 1922 model.
here are some pictures and the measurements...
W31 - Pre-soak
Soaking right now...
W31 - Pre-soak - Post-soak
W 17.5" - 16.25/16.5" (will stretch easily)
FR 12" - 11.5"
BR 16.25" - 15.5"
T 13.5" - 13"
K 10" - 9.5"
LO 9.25" - 8.75/9"
IS 36" - 33.25/33.5"
Some post-soak shots...
Maybe I'll break them in later today - will take fit pictures.
it's crazy how big they are compared to the tag size. this size 31 would even fit me! :-D
but looks like a great repro
most brands are typically doing a SDO - a true 33" waist fits into a tagged W32
some brands allow for SDT - you can go for W31
what comes to mind are some models from the following brands:
and a few others, I am sure
other than vanity sizing or general sizing policy I have convinced myself that this happens for the following reasons:
- thin fabric that stretches a lot (Warehouse, FullCount)
- lose weave that allows for a lot of stretch (PBJ)
- low rise cuts that actually sit on the hip and not on the waistline
Bonus pictures - back home after spending the afternoon at the Puschkin Fine Arts Museum:
Took off vest and belt and switched into something more comfortable - braces/suspenders (Hoffnung Berlin)
FullCount 1101AI W (W31)
Pics with and without flash, will try to do some daylight pictures over the weekend.
fit pics - was trying to find out if I should roll up the hem or get it shortened - this pair might become my summer pair...
Probably as much tapper as I can possibly endure. Usually, straighter is better...
Nice pair Kaj!
The 1101 would also be the cut I would buy from Fullcount.
