Definitely buy. I think they retailed for $180 or $200 originally. Doesn't matter - They're becoming scarce, so if it's in your size jump on it.

Ya it's the LAST pair.. I'm gonna do it, I called another outlet and they were selling them for $180! Rediculous.

* and does anyone know if Trouleg 8IT runs long? I know I should size down in the waist but if I take a 34 length would the 32 in 8IT fit?
post #181 of 420
and tricky that was to the link you posted was 8BK..
post #182 of 420
8it runs SUUUUUPER long. L32 on 8it will run about 35" or so
post #183 of 420
So instead of a 32X34 i'll need a 31X32 in 8it correct?
post #184 of 420
I'm only keeping this thread alive because this forum is so utterly bland now that I need a reason to visit. And I'm bored and have nothing better to do. In my fruitless search for 30x32 8DK i noticed that there were a number of NWT troulegs loafing around eBay in reasonable sizes.

8BI
I bought a pair from this French guy last month and they were great, so I just bought another pair (I waited more than a year to find these). He has:
31x32
31x34
32x34

8EU
Italiandenim has lots of 8EU:
30x34
32x32
32x34

8IT
This German dude has some 8IT. I want to buy a pair but not sure how the euro sizing differs from US (an allegation was made about this):
28x32
30x32

8HL
31x32

8BK
29x32

8AC
29x34

61E
32x32

8DD
26x30

yep, you should be ok to size down on the length
post #186 of 420
thanks! how'd you find the trouleg 8it? i did a search on ebay.com and couldnt find anything
post #187 of 420
you need to set the advanced search filter so that it will locate items from all over the world.
post #188 of 420
is it the location option?
post #189 of 420
i did a normal search on ebay.co.uk. some of these euro guys don't list shipping to the US, which is why it won't come up on an ebay.com search. i'm sure they'll ship to the US if you message them
post #190 of 420
i see, thanks for the find tho and info!
post #191 of 420
first of all, thanks for the info planet

reason i am asking it here is that...

lol, no need to repeat yourself we got that the first time you mentioned it.
post #193 of 420
^point taken. you're a great mod btw - perhaps if you were the mod six months earlier then we would've avoided this malarky. oh, and how about those 8AA?
post #194 of 420

Yeah how about those 8AA? (frown face)

I've been wearing my size 32 8AAs almost every other day and they haven't gone baggy as I originally feared. I've yet to wash them, so I think they'll shrink up to perfect after a short stint in the dryer. Looks like we both got the right size.

By the way Cez - what do you think about tub-washing 8AA? A worthwhile effort?
post #195 of 420
see told ya trouleg 8aas don't go all baggy
post #196 of 420
Thanks Piers, I absolutely love my Trouleg 8AA. Hands down the best Diesels I've ever owned. I really regret not coping those 8EU's.

I must be crazy or maybe I wear more often, but they have stretched in the waist, not much in the thigh or calfs, but for sure in the waist and seat. It could also be that I dropped a few pounds since last Xmas. Either way sizing down is out of the question. I highly doubt I'd fit my massive thighs and calfs into a 30w.

Grondie-I have yet to wash these bad boys, but if came down to having to give them a soak I would probably choose to go the bath tub route. For now I think I'll wait until they can stand on their own two legs.

BTW have you experienced much fading or bleeding? I remember a few people saying that the 8AA bled a lot, but I have yet to experience any of that.

I haven't experienced any fading or bleeding. I haven't worn my 8AAs with any white sneakers though, so I imagine that it's possible given the right conditions, color, humidity... I never experienced it with Zathan 8AA either, and I wore that with white kicks all the time.

My Trouleg 8AAs have definitely become my favorite Diesels - to such an extreme degree that they're just choking out everything else, even my other Troulegs. I just wish that I got the memo two years ago - now it's like I'm making up for lost time.

8EU has definitely become my second most worn pair behind 8AA. It's not really a good wash - I've laundered them once and they're noticeably faded despite being run cold with Woolite Dark. But the fit - the fit - is spot-on perfect. I plan to dye them with Rit Dye just to get some of the darkness back.

As for 8AA stretch - The waist and seat have definitely given far more than any other part of jeans, and everything else is roughly the same as it was after the 3rd wear - so I think we're experiencing the same stretch factor. We'll have to compare after a few months to see if either of us has noticeable "progress" in the fades department.

On a sidenote - It's amazing how much this wash changes after it's been washed and worn several times. I have a used pair of Trouleg 8AA that comes from the same lab on the same day but looks really different from the unwashed pair. Most distinct is that the new pair has a real sheen to it, and the washed pair is completely dull.
post #198 of 420
anyone seen any 31x32 71V's kicking about, or is it like the ugly duckling of the trouleg family and i'll get abuse for mentioning them?!

No, I want. Generally, hard to find. There were a couple on ebay recently - in size 31 of all things. But they're generally a rare sight.
post #200 of 420
Damn it!!!! Me wants too!

Here is some eye candy for now, props to 130_R for the original post
