    • I miss this thread. I also miss Cotton Duck, who helped get my my first cotton duck pullover!

      In tirbute to him, here's my new three-pleat duck jacket, alongside the pullover, in a slightly different colour.

      This is from 2013, and although I thought it wasn't a Cone fabric, I'm wrong.





    • A few folks here have seen my denim three-pleat. This is the Cone synthetic 1880s fabric, which is lovely. Gnarly but not overdone. Although I like, for instance, the TCB fabric which looks great from afar, it is very high contrast and super-slubby close up. The Cone in comparison is far blue-er, and subtle.

        Now of course, thanks to Spiraltoy I have its companion, the same jacket in cotton duck.


      It's similar in construction to the denim version - but not the same. For a start, even though they're the same size, the pockets on the duck version are deeper.

      It has some selvage detailing - although not as much as the duck pullover. It's a different fabric. I thought this wasn't Cone, but apparently it is, according to me anyway(!) Again, I thought this might be Turkish-made, but my 2013 story says it was sewn in LA

      Here's a story on the development of the first duck replica fabric.



      Here is is alongside the duck pullover.



    • Washed the ww2's again , water must have been a bit hot .....   Patch took a bit of a hit  And one with Jack's jerky patch Levi's   
    • @Dry, Did you buy them on sale?  
    • I didn't know bagjack took requests, a lot of their molle pouches are halfway to what I'm after so I'll have to drop them an email. It's a shame xpac is reserved for Acronym, but I can live with cordura even though it's not as light. Amdusproject looks like it's worth following too. Thank you for the info'
