^ As seldom as possible I think ooms, possibly only every 6 months.

Do DM him via Instagram before taking the trains out there to see if he is available. 
I am pretty sure you still need to get in line for the purchase even when you are physically there, it is only made to order so he don't have any pairs ready to go.

OK I'll make sure to shoot him a DM.

I know I'll still have to wait. I just want to see everything in person before I purchase because I have that opportunity.

And zing they do!
My lesser worn M-46 one hot soak and 12months of wear, only a few hours/day in the evenings and a cold wash.



I was worried about the shrinkage because these had only been hot soaked so i gave them a cold machine wash inside out, pulled them on wet and went for jog, the next morning they still looked a bit grimey so i gave them another cold wash outside out. They were tight when i pulled them on wet but by the time they had dried 4 hours later they had already stretched back to their pre-wash dimensions. Next time i'll just wash them on a 30~

The colour is accurate here



General rule of thunb- don't go with the waist size.
Size up 1" to fit in the waist with a snug hip (not for those bro's with ample thighs and ass)
Size up 2" for a regular top block/hip which will have an oversize sloppy waistband.
This is how they fit the day after a wash

Great post mate

I definitely agree with your sizing advise 👍

As far as the current denim goes the ww2 denim is a bit more forgiving than the rest with a little stretch but the 47 denim doesnt give mutch and what little it does give you have to fight for so definitely consider going up 2 on the 47 cut

Some comparisons?

You can see the effects of the tighter hip on the whiskering
