For the taller guys, BiG has the 811 with a 39" raw inseam and the 888 (basically the 811 cut with added stuff) comes with an 40" inseam raw

What to do if you have the cut-off from the hemjob and some spare minutes?





resulting in some spare denim and original Eternal thread for repairs

I wore a pair of 874 on/off for a couple of years and have since worn a pair of Flat Head F350s for a similar period. Different cuts but in my humble opinion, selvage colour aside, the denim seems eerily similar.

I never tire of seeing Ipkus' Eternal 811. For me, the grail pair of that model.
