I'm sure I don't what either of you are talking about Pig

In any event.

'Someone else' once said it before, although the common thinking is more to machine washing to get the shrink out, that 'they'd' changed their own view on this and were more inclined, now, to cool/lukewarm soak and hang dry instead of the hot agitation of the machine. 

If I did it again with raw loomstate denim that's what I'd do. Reason being I (sorry - they) had come to the conclusion that excess hot machine washing tightened up the fibres too much, and had a bit of a detrimental effect on the properties or qualities of the fabric. Took it too far if you will.

Cool soak, natural stretching, preferable outcome Thumbs Up

Indeed "massivebonanza" Wink they do come up rather small, with no size chart to go with i was sent photographs of washed waistbands being measured and the 33 shrinks down to 16" across. I have only hot soaked and the fit is nr perfect if a little snug in the top block or should i say less roomy than what i would usually wear, Think it will only be 30C washes from now on in. It was either that or hot wash a 34.

Very nice, Mr Soul. 

But, a 33? Put on a bit of timber? 

Joshing .. from what I can interpret, the FortyNiners regular line One Piece of Rock 409xxx appear to fit small on the waist

I like what they've done with the patch on the Miura special.

Cool stuff, Can't wait to see what these look like with a little wear and some washes.

And ever since you mentioned the '46 a while back I've been anticipating this. My interest is piqued further now because of the background to which the FW Lot 601XX are designed - so I'd love to hear more about these items.




And Duke I'd love to hear what you know of the 601xx background, please post it over in the FW thread!

Ooms- It must've been that old 'David Niven' charm that done it, that and a sprinkling of very good fortune but mainly the charm.

b_F- The pre-order form was in Japanese that you had to print, fill out, fax back and wait for confirmation. Reading early blog posts folks traveled across JP to collect the S409XXX over the counter and i get the feeling that 49,s are not that interested in tapping the international market, that being said they made it happen for me and for that i am grateful.
