Very nice b_F... Just look at the construction - there's so much detail. Full Count 1108s are definitely on my wants list for some day, although I'm more attracted to the lighter weight denim of the standard model. Could be an excellent hot weather jean.

yeah it really could be. Flash could answer this, I'm sure. I still like some thicker/heavier denim. I own a pair of Red Cloud 13,7oz denim and they say the RC and FC denim is similar.

And I really like all this detailing those repro brands do.

@ BF
Have you ordered those mate , i was thinking about getting a pair of the 1109xx but i tjink ill wait untill tokyo next year before i buy any more jeans
@sugar mountain
the standard 1108s are perfect for warmer weather ( bear in mind i live in belfast northern ireland )
The denim is a pretty tight weave but it breaths realy well

I always thought this post by the legendary ringring on Sufu about FC was a good one...

ringring, you have a pair? any notes on the details?

yes, i have a pair. details are pretty much per my previous post. i guess much of the appeal, lies in the fit, which is lower rise, 66 style slim fit, and the truly wonderful redcast denim. for those who value history, i know a few denimnerds who have bought them also due to the original mccoy lineage. they also seem to be a rarity.

on the flipside, the donut fly buttons are a bit cheap looking.

erbs said:
do you mind if i ask what sets the fullcounts apart?

as the replies above, the fullcounts have curved back pocket openings (as well as the beautiful subtle curve of the inner edge of the patch pocket) and multiple thread sizes, colours and stitch counts (including the beautifully dense stitching done using a fine yarn on the fly front and back pockets - stitching that would grace a fine shirt).

more refinements include the peek-a-boo selvedge on the 5th pocket, the ridged belts loops, although by no means exclusive to fullcount.

it's small details like these that gives the impression that whoever designed these jeans decided to go just a little bit further in every direction.

other notable features of the 1108 are the straight hipped cut and the beautiful denim, which, although heavyweight, is so compact that after wear it feels thin. it takes on a shine, even a shimmer and the fine ring pattern reminds me of the falling rain.

they are one of the few pairs of jeans that i would consider buying multiples of, just in case they stopped production.

Doesn't it just make you want to cop a pair immediately?

tnx DD!


'found it interesting so i thought i'd share & take comparative side x side pix of how certain Okayama-made denim, no matter what brand or evo route you take them on, wind up with similar-looking hues/fades down the line.   i suspect it's the kind of indigo grown & used in the region__ having similar dye properties, ie.

both the momos & FCs have reached a   "plateau"  @this point... half-life,  but not necessarily past prime

Awesome pictures Brownicon, and featuring two of my favourite jeans - the Mom 0701 and Skull 5010XX.

I don't have any experience with FC, but they look damn nice too. As you say, amazing how all 3 have faded to a similar colour.

tnx peeps!  FC denim is incredible.  i had the pleasure of rocking both their 13.75 & 15.5 ozers. a bit tough to fade,  need constant wear for a worthwhile payback__  "late-boomers" like my SDAs

so yeah..I ordered a pair of FC 1108XX :)

They went from Japan to Cologne and are now in Paris (wtf?!)...Fedex has a funny logistic. I think it's because on the 10th, when I ordered, they estimated the delivery on the 15th...and somehow they want to reach their goal. Would be impossible for them to be faster than expected :D
