Would a 2-1 weave denim stretch more or less than standard 3-1 weave (all other factors being equal)?

I want to say less, but I don't really know...

Has anyone here tried over-dyeing a garment at home? And with decent results?

I've overdyed my 76, once then a top up to try get it darker. Used Dylon machine dye. My only niggle is creases from the hot wash in the machine (both sleeves)..

(Sorry about the size of images, Photobucket not working!!)

Random question:

So on ebay I was able to snag the 130-GB that my size sold out of before I could buy this fall.

The seller told me he purchased from directly from Japan. Am I correct in assuming the sizing for items is the same for the UK and Japan? I figured that they are all made at the same time with the same specifications and then divided up between G and H. However, the Japan website has much different measurements than the UK one.

Any guidance/experience? 

Cheers,
Dan

Same tagged sizes apply. IHUK don't use the published Japanese measurements and measure all stuff themselves when it arrives, hence the difference. I remember Giles getting a vest in for me that he otherwise wasn't going to stock and I ordered it based on Japanese measurements. G's measurements were entirely different and I had to size up.

@neph93 Thanks mate. I figured that was the case, but I just wanted to make sure.

 I recall G mentioning something in another thread (I can't recall now given how many I have read over the years) about not making assumptions on fit or sizing decisions based on the measurements posted on the Japan website.

Appreciate the help sir!

Cheers,
Dan
