    g
    raphzero... have never seen these before, but the texture of the denim looks interesting. I also like the unusual looking watch and backpockets. Weird sizing tho and way too short for me.

    The good thing about Eight G is, that they are available via aeroleather in Europe, and even if they're expensive, I think it equals the shipping + custom fees.

    ^ the watch pocket design reminds me of Duck Digger and the backpockets of my Strongholds. I don't like the beltloops.

    Something new: Kagura denim. I don't like the arcs, but the denim looks tasty.

    Thanks for the posts. The Kagura denim reminds me a bit of Flathead denim (especially on my denim shirt).

    Sun Rise Japan has some crazy leg twist!

    Never heard about this brand, but it seems, that they are using a real nice 14.6 oz japan selvage denim.

    http://www.allevol.com/selvedge-jeans/slim-cut.html

    Also a nice washing instructions about raw denim, although I disagree about their recommandation, not to wear raw denim stuff never washed over a year because of not getting nice fadings that way. The never washed method is the only way, you can accumulate a super great patina and keep the original greyish non washed raw denim indigo colour

    I'm sure there are loads of " undiscovered" Jspanese brands out there to find.
    Who makes the record heaviest?
    Is it still Eight G at 32oz?
    I wonder if they're wearable - they certainly would nt go into holes quickly!!!

    I'm still waiting for the first 32 oz pants to reach my place. But I'll have probably to wait some years more for them

    I all the Lightning mags it says 28 oz as well (maybe pre-soak weight)? It has been crwoned King of Heavy oz in one of the last issues. It's also called "1kg denim".

    Thanks for this great infos Flo and Tilmann

    I already had spent too much money for nice raw denim stuff!!

    At least the first 24 oz Samurai had reached me finally after long long waiting!! And they are fantastic!!

    Perhaps in some more time the 30 oz or 28 or 32 oz will reach me later. But I can't pay the full price at the moment. But I need a new one to have them as a comparision model in case some really heaviest used and worn out pair is hitting my place in a couple of years. I hope the same for the first 24 oz worn out Sammies and heavy weight worn out Strike Gold and Iron Heart stuff.

    Perhaps I'll see some nice stuff on the B&B in Berlin next week

    And perhaps I'll meet some other raw denim heads in town?

    If anybody of you guys are in town, let me know

    I would give anything for jeans this heavy!

    Mind you, as I wear them skintight perhaps 14oz is as heavy as I can go without not being able to bend my knees!!!

    If IH did size 23" in Tomboy 21oz denim I'd try that but the smallest they have is 26" and Paula emailed the measurements - i could get into one leg!!
