    Just wondering with the Skull contest ending in September and the Denime contest ending in December is there any room to start or get a Japanese Denim contest set up for a beginning in early fall? There are a few interesting brands that I would like to seen in a contest. Pherrows, McCoys, UES are a few ideas. I know SuFu is doing a Warehouse contest but I have a connection that might be able to get the denims at a nice discount. What do you guys think?

    I'll let you know if I'm interested once you decide a brand/cut.


    Don't overdo the suggestion thing again. Make sure you can live up to what you bring to the table.

    I'm in if it's not as baggy as the Yen jeans. Which means alot of people wont be in - but either way people wont be happy.

    well, not as baggy doesnt mean superslim. I'd like to see a model that doesnt have a hem bigger than 21 cm and not under 19 cm. Maybe this might appeal to most people? perhaps a small taper?

    Ok, well first let me say I started this thread to generate interest. I personally, would like to have a Pherrows contest. So if that means this thread turns into a Pherrows contest, GREAT.
    My connection is to Warehouse so it's basically dead right now since I want Pherrows. I would need help from the stronger and more connected members of this community setting this up.
    I do however live in Japan, I speak Japanese and I can do more leg work than most, as long as I'm pointed in the right direction. So, if anyone can help out, it will benefit everyone:mrgreen:.

    This is the rough Google translation. I think these jeans would be great for a contest. I really like the idea of having soft flannel pockets! There is also the 521XX we might want to check out. But I like the fade of the 421 more and the 421 is about 4,000 en cheaper.

    If it's either these Pherrow's or some McCoys or UES, i'd be very interested to join.
    These have some great detailling.
    A 50's or 60's or maybe even a 30's repro cut has my likings.

    I am forever changing my mind:evil: I have also been wanting to see SDA-103/105s or Eternal 811s in a contest. I'm thinking that because of my current location and connections putting together an Eternal 811 contest might be easliy accomplished. I have yet to talk to my source about this, as so far, this is just a fishing expedition. Let me know what you think. Again, just fishing here people to get things started.

    I don't really mind what jeans we choose - I'm not as fussy as you guys.

    Eternal 811 = nice
    Pherrows 421 = nice
    Pherrows 511xx might be a bit wide for my tastes.
    103s = nice (15 oz tho, bit heavy for Aus, but bearable)
    105s = not so much my thing, but, if everyone wanted this over the 103s I wouldn't complain.

    other jeans I don't mind:
    PBJ 003 or 007, the strike gold sg 101, FH k5003xx, japan blue mvpa01 (I like these - don't see them much?)

    Who else has thoughts?
