Here are some other photo's of that NOS pair of MP-603,s i posted in the Archives thread.

The swing ticket looks about right


The back pockets look quite shallow on a pair of 28" SC jeans, could be the photo angle.


The font/lettering of the waistband tag looks right (for an early example) albeit the spacing is slightly odd and stitched wonky? the button fly is offset to the left which would be correct, the buttons, pocket bag, v-stitch ect looks right yet the hidden rivet and bartack look strange.


The wash tag gets me! it doesn't look right at all.
The spacing of  T 0Y  0 is bonkers and ENTERPRISE is a different font to all M41001,s
40deg whats all that about? and again the positioning is very sloppy and un-toyo like.
Can any Japanese speakers translate the Kanji?

The pair I have in the mail have been washed but not worn heavily (what I could judge by the crappy pics). I've just seen about 4 really bad photos but the details look exactly like the NOS pair above. I'll give you a thorough review once they've arrived.

Thanks IH

Thanks Spiraltoy, I look forward to it. I'd love to know if they are pre 91, ive seen snippets of old 90,s era Lightening, Street Jack and Made in Japan magazines with regards to the M41001,s release but nothing in regards to the MP-603,s..?

Didn't even think of all the old Japanese denim mags! I'll have a sift through my oldest as well. Dono if I have any pre 2000 though so it might be a waste of time.

So, my SC's finally arrived today. Judging from the photos I thought they where a pair of MP-603's but no:

They're a pair of MP-597
Here's a shot of the unpicked arcs and seat:

The denim is quite hairy and a little neppy. Couldn't attach photos to the post. Sorry about that. Fit pics will follow as soon as they're soaked and dried.

They look excellent!
I would actually prefer the MP-597 to the 603, the cut looks better (for me at least) and the pockets look in proportion.

Look at that rivet


What does the hidden rivet look like Spiraltoy?

Okay, so I need some help from any of you guys who have or seen the SC Hawaii or the SC Okinawa in person.

I want to start breaking in another pair of denim, and I've narrowed it down to those 2 pairs from Sugar Cane. I've fallen in love with SC and the styles they offer. I'm borderline obsessed with what the Fiction & Romance collection.

Anyway, if you had the choice between the two, which would you pick and why? The one difference I see is the color of the Hawaii is more of a royal blue color as oppose to a more navy blue of the Oki's. 

Any help and info would be appreciated! 

PS.
Anyone who knows of a pair of Oki Rainbows in size 38 waist, please let me know! If there is a grail I'm seeking, it's a pair of rainbows!

Thanks fellas!

This is a dilemma I had and although I now have both pairs I bought the Hawaii first.

I love left hand twill denim and this is one of the key things that drew me to the Oki, however, in the end, it was the beautiful bright blue colour of the Hawaii that prevailed.

If you really can't make up your mind, buy both, they're cheap enough!
