    While cutting they stack more denim than usual and thus the cutting is less accurate?

    That’s the spirit! But no … Each side of that central corridor has a different job used in manufacturing - which impacts the jeans more?

    It’s done by the ghosts of former Levi’s factory workers!

    It’s done by hand without a strict reliance on templates? I like this game.

    Geography teachers would commonly double up as PE teachers so were often found clad in tracksuits!

    Very good! There was definitely a crossover in style between geography teachers and physics teachers. Always a filthy coffee mug in hand too, except for my old geography teacher who was an old soak. Can't be too cruel though, I have a fine pair of Spellbound indigo-dyed rice cord trousers. And I learnt to my dismay recently that the Cord du Roi / Cloth of Kings thing might be a myth.

    Sounds more like he’s swapped denim for corduroy elbow patches!

    So much great knowledge in that book. @PaulT has swopped workwear for watts these days and become a physics teacher!

    They eat loads of jelly and cake, blindfold themselves, pocket in each hand pierced with a drawing pin, spin around 3 times and see how close they can get them....

    It’s done by a blind person? They do it by touch rather than sight?

    Between the hot summer days there have been a few unexpectedly cool evenings, so I've been able to get a few more wears in, enough to bring on some repair-worthy damage in a couple of spots.

    There’s an interesting part in the process of pattern cutting that I’m not sure anyone has yet picked up on.

    Sizing help please! Will a pair of pre-washed/distressed LVC’s fit the same as a raw pair that’s been fully shrunk in the same tag size? Been reading through posts and sizing guide, but haven’t seen it spoken to. I wear 33 in Warehouse 800xx & Unbranded 301, size 2 in Orslow 105, and 32 in Iron Heart 634 - was hoping for a slightly more relaxed fit and got a 33 in a pre-washed/distressed pair of LVC 55s and am completely swimming in them. Now considering a size 32 in the raw 55s, but unsure if that’s a wise choice
