Was looking at Selfedge's and Ironheart UK's fit table for IH beatle busters... Anyone knows why the figures are so different? I understand that stats very across each individual pair, but they're seriously wayyy off... like an inch in some instances iirc.

Also, can anyone recommend a slim straight Jap denim that has tighter top block and thighs, but isn't overly tapered from knee to hem? Fit pics of IH BBs look the part... I'm also waiting for TDS to bring in the Imperial Dukes so I can try, the measurements look about right... anything else worth mentioning?

usually i will receive the package in 4-5 days. however it is not uncommon for the details on the internet to be not accurately reflected.

Slimmer top block with not much taper at all would be the Flat Heads 3001/f310. Fits your description exactly. For a slim straight, most westerners have a problem with the thigh/hip/butt area, as it runs really slim. As for me, i'm 180 cm, 63 kg, waist 30, and the thighs for me are quite fitting, not tight, but still. I guess ill post a ****ty iphone pic of my fit.

i would suggest you go for 666s. it has a super boxed top block but is not too tapered knee down.

not to mention superb fabric and amazing details (selvedge crotch, taped front pocket, lined backpockets, overkill stitching )

a must have for die hard jap denim fan i'd say. fit is quite similar to sams s710.

i went SDO with 710 and SUO with 666s.. the fit is about the same, except 666s has a tighter hip and top block.. you can go TTS for 666s i guess.

Ah so you're selling cos you felt you should have went TTS :/ 666 looks really good too.
666 thighs look even slimmer than the 3001s judging from selfedge's chart. Pity it costs a bomb.

blehbleh, biksugondrong - That's some excellent advice guys. I say so because I was considering both the 666 and f310 as well... For FHs, I can afford to be patient and wait for TDS to restock, since I was told they'd be coming in March as well. Early March, iirc. So can try those with the Dukes when stock comes in.

666s need a bit more guts since its overseas purchase, plus its a new 18oz fabric so I'm thinking of waiting for people to grow some fades and post pics before committing. But its terribly tempting... Thats why I wanted to ask if anyone could reconcile the differing fit tables.

Anyway, no rush since am barely into my Edwin Sens.. But I look forward to seeing your fit pics nonetheless!

They both use different measuring methods, hence the big difference. I will try to search for the thread on measurement, and paste it here.

This is referring to thigh measurements, right? Thanks bro, much appreciated.

Hows the busters coming along? Your evo pics were one of the reasons I was looking at em.
