Decided to go with the Warehouse 1001 for the DWC. Warehouse is my favorite brand, and this version of the 1001 is one of my best fitting pairs of jeans. Went with tagged size 36×32. Jeans shrank to 1/2″ below tagged at the waist and inseam (3″ shrinkage). The one wash measurements at Warehouse’s web store are very accurate.
Denim is Warehouse’s 1001 “Banner Denim”, created from the dissection of a late 1930’s Levi’s denim advertising banner. The advertised weight of the denim is 13.5 oz. I believe this is the post wash weight since this denim is noticeably lighter and less dense than Warehouse’s 14.5 oz 1000XX denim. For comparison, the 1001’s raw and post wash weight feels very similar to the 12 oz denim Levi’s Vintage Clothing uses in their post WWII jeans.
The details and hardware of the 1001 lean more towards a mid 1950s Levi’s 501XX. When worn, the silhouette of the 1001 reminds me of the Levi’s of the late 50s/early 60s. If you’re a fan of wider belts, the 1001 has shorter belt loops than prior Warehouse’ models, and you won’t be able to wear a belt much wider than 1 1/2″.
Some fit pictures after two warm washes, a day of wear in between and after. Just got these May 7th, so no amnesty wears. Brand new, and ready to go for two years!May 11, 2015 at 3:08 pm #3720
Planning on posting updates here monthly. Follow on Instagram @setterpie for updates on these and my other pairs of raw denim (and setters, cats, and life in NWPA).June 1, 2015 at 6:31 pm #4349

A month in and just over 20 days of wear. Nothing going on wear wise other than at the hem.
And every afternoon or evening, the setter has to go for a run. Using the remains of an old road that runs through the game lands we hunt on. Dog usually stays on there, and I always stay on there because I want to avoid picking up a tick and contracting Lyme disease.June 15, 2015 at 9:12 am #4610
some great pictures in here!June 16, 2015 at 1:04 pm #4633
Thanks Sgt Pinback!
Spent the weekend in central Ohio. Started in Amish Country, at Sugarcreek for the 50s Fling car show. A few of my favorite cars from the show (I like Pontiacs).
In downtown Sugarcreek, the world’s largest cuckoo clock (wearing Warehouse 1003XX in this photo)
Finished the weekend off stopping at the MAPS Air Museum next to the Akron/Canton Airport.
99th B-26 Marauder to come off the production line. Rescued in Alaska in 1970 from where it crash landed in 1942.
And finally me with the contest jeans on.
Most interesting aircraft there, and I didn’t get a picture of it, is an F-86A that’s in parts and pieces being restored. It flew with the 4th Fighter Wing in Korea where it was credited with damaging a MiG. But its real shining moment was winning the final jet air race held in Cleveland in 1949. They intend to finish it in the markings it wore the day it won that race.June 16, 2015 at 1:12 pm #4634

Do warehouse do a 60’s cut do you know? Digging the 1001. Looking good.
As an aside, do you have a particular issue with Lymes disease where you are? I have a hard time persuading my kids that they are ok to play in the woods, and that Lymes disease is an unlikely outcome! It’s not really an issue where I am thankfully!June 22, 2015 at 5:58 pm #4724
Warehouse has two 60s style jeans, the 1100 they came out with a couple years ago and still available here there, and the current 1101.
As for Lyme, my neighbor’s wife contracted it, and most likely while clearing trees in the woods behind my house. So, even after years of running back there without any problems for me or the dog, I just stay outta there between April and November. The past two springs have been bad around here tick wise, which is surprising considering how brutally cold the winters were. During hunting season I don’t worry about ticks too much because the dog is well medicated with his drops, and I’ve got enough clothing on to keep them off me. Never fails though when we go to a grouse spot I know of, that the dog comes home with at least one tick on him.
