    Ordered a pair of 301S in a size 36. Not sure if they fit me too well. Love the fit from the thigh on down, but I think the upper block may be a tad too big. I'll try to take a pic tomorrow. I see there is no size 35 and the 34 looks like a pretty big drop off in the waist (2 inches smaller) and thigh (1 inch total).

    Will the waist and thigh stretch out enough to meet me halfway in between a tagged 34 and 36?

    If you can get it buttoned up just stick with it, the denim stretches 1" after just five or six wears. You'll be far happier with the fit in the end if you stay with the size you have now.

    I was trying to say that I have a 36 and don't know if I should go down to a 34. I can button up the 36, but I don't think they fit/look how they are supposed to. I can actually sag them quite a bit after I button them up. Here are some pics. In a few of the pics I have them at my waist and a few are sagged a bit. These are a 36, but I didn't know if a 34 would be too tight if I went down in size. It my not look like it in the pics, but there is plenty of room in the butt and the crotch. I think I definitely need to go to a smaller size, but it looks like a pretty big drop off from 36 to 34 as far as the waist, rise, and upper thigh go. I went with the 36 because I have a size 34 IH634S that measure just under 34 in the waist after stretching and they are pretty tight now. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^That fit does not look so good, especially the second photo. I would size down if I were you. If you cannot button the 34s, then maybe try a different cut? The new 3Sixteen stuff looks great. I like the pocket closure on the utility shirt- it's not something you see often. The duffel looks fantastic as well. The removable hood was a great idea. I've never been a fan of hooded coats, but I imagining the hood + high collar would be serious winter protection. Textured wool is a nice change up from melton. Nicely done! [​IMG]

    The second pic is with them sagged a little bit. That is why they baloon out. If I pull them up, they're not too bad, but then I have a bit of room in the waist.

    I still think that fit on a new pair is not good. They are going to stretch in the waist and be even larger. If there's one thing I've learned, new sanforized or one-wash denim should be a little painful from the crotch up at first, but then you wind up with such a nice fit after ~20 wears.

    I think the 301s cut only works for certain body types/proportions. I'm not saying that bigger guys can't wear them, but they certainly are less flattering on short and portly body types than taller bodies. seafinch on SuFu wears the size 36 301s great, for example:
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    After some wear:
    ::: Update on my IH301S's ::: Thought I'd post some pics of how they're fitting after about two months of semi-regular wear. They've definitely settled down and relaxed a bit. Pretty happy with the fit. ignore the mismatched socks... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    His fit does seem more snug from the start, but he is also taller and his photos are from shoulder down, rather than waist down which tends to skew the aspect of bodily proportions. My suggestion: Size down, or just try a different cut (634s, SExIH07, etc.)

    How much are the duffel coats going for at SENY? Would it be possible to get shoulder and chest measurements for the medium and large?

    Not necessarily. 3Sixteen's site prices on the denim, for instance, is more than SE's.

    You havent even hot soaked those yet, have you dude? I rarely go by the raw fit.

    What's the shrink-rate on those? That looks okay for dry, pre-shrink, imo.

    ^Pretty sure they're sanforized, though... Any shrinking will be lost by stretching, and then some.
