    Tiro and I have been hijacking too many threads talking about this stuff, so i'm making a new threat to talk about samurai jeans


    ready. go.


    does anyone know the differences between the different versions of the SO510XX? there's a ton of them, like so510xx ii, so510xx iii, so510xx-66ii, etc

    Just wear them under your suit pants :wink:

    Or buy the TFDBC, they look like trousers anyways :lol:.

    I feel your pain though, I never wore my jeans at work because I work on cars all day. But what I did is bought a cheap ass pair of dry jeans and I'm going to beat the shit out of them at work and see how they will turn out :D

    hehe, this is funny, I work around car parts all day also, basically I'm obliged to wear my work clothes, cause the company gives them to you...

    but the idea of cheap ass dry denim is definatly worth a try :D

    oh, I also started out wanting sammi's, I would have gone with the S0510XX III, but then I saw the Oni Reds and the rest you all know :wink:

    oh, don't you have 'casual friday' as a lawyer?

    i would have thought the so510xx's would be too tight for you?

    haha about casual fridays. not at my firm, they're pretty formal, maybe slacks and a shirt instead of a suit, but never jeans. i'd probably get fired. :twisted:

    well, that's why I didn't go the sammi road, the so510xx III was labeled relax fit but, the Oni Reds are definatly more my thing, the pbj xx-003 was also apealing but someone on SF said it was kinda low rise...

    those TFDBC could start looking like jeans once they break in tho... :wink:

    dude, it took ridiculously short. Ordered Thursday night (EST) which is Friday morning in Japan. USPS delivered them to my house yesterday morning, on a Sunday. I didn't even think USPS made deliveries on sundays, but it took less than 4 days. I was shocked.
