    A thread for RJB!

    Does anyone own any of the new 103/105/106bsp? I would very much like some fit pics :)

    Here is my 66bspbk from SE, bought at a very reasonable price a month back. I've been pretending they are suit pants ;-), so they're getting a few hours each week at work (they have little patches of fading).

    SE has most of the info on its website. But, off the top of me head: 14 oz black warp x black weft + black stitching + black dyed cowhide patch. The lot & size printing has since faded away~

    Universal gripper zipper (same one as the Samurai zip model I think). Knife pocket for my A.Wright & Sons :) The belt loops are nice & thick, with a raised ridge in the centre.

    The denim itself is quite something too, not very familiar with the texture (can't describe it, look at the pic for yourself).

    Woow, that looks pretty awesome. Im thinking of buying the same pair.. But what about the fit? For myself, Im looking for a average joe (or a bit slimmer) fit.. Is it quite similar to average joe? It looks alot slimmer to me ;)..

    Let me know how the ur doing with the progress on these sweet pair of jeans! :).. Goodluck! :)

    Hey sambal, this pair is based on the Dior 19cm cut, so it has a low-ish rise and is quite tapered in the legs - it will be a slim fit if you went tts. I sized one up on these, as they are my work pants.

    I'll try and put up some fit pics when I can, put SE's website has some fit pics.

    aaah, thanks!

    Yeaah, I have seen the pics of it on SE.com.. but I hope, I can make it a bit less slimmer look. Cause the way the model wears it on SE.com is not my style.. ;)..

    I'm looking forward to ur fit pics :)

    se has the measurements up, but i think the size 31 measures to about 33.5 pre soak. (i own this size obviously)

    i originally opted for a 30 but they were out. since i have ridiculous thighs, i figured a 31 should be fine. the waist is a bit big so they need another hot soak, but i anticipate them to stretch again in the future. (which is fine, they'll probably end up sagging a bit)

    TTS i would've gone 30. my AJLAB3 was a size 31 but if I had to guess I think I'm a 30 in those now (or maybe even a 29 if i wanna squeeze)

    Wow guys! The RJB look great on both of you! :D

    Im now really considering buying this pair. It looks like a great piece of japanese denim to me, and the price is reasonable :).. Plus the look of the jeans is pretty much what I'm looking for :D!

    i would definitely get them if you can find your size... they are a sick pair of jeans for - what's even better, sick price. they remind me of the KMW context black jean but i havnen't seen any worn pairs yet.
