Full Count 1101

New stuff: Full Count 1101

My Full Counts is another gem I brought home with me from Japan.  For a long, long time I’ve been thinking about what to go after, both cut wise and denim wise – the lighter standard denim or slightly heavier xx-denim. When all was said and done I decided to go for the 1101, a slightly more modern and tapered cut that is very flattering, in the standard 13,7 oz denim. It felt like a good choice to go with their flagship denim just like I’ve made the same choice with the other Osaka 5 brands. It is almost like the heart of these classic brands.

The jeans are still shelved in their raw state. I’ve been debating whether to wash them or not but for now I think they will have to stay put. More talk about the jeans will have to wait until then but I’m very intrigued to see if I feel like it’s my most comfortable pair of jeans like Miki-san is trying to achieve with the brand.

If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend Paul Trynka’s interview with Miki-san from 2014. You can read it at Paul’s blog.
