    • Thank you JohnM & Cusswords, for valuable input. 
    • Sadly, no! I always think they are going to run out!
    • How much stretch is there with 105 and 107 denim? I’m so torn between the 105 or 107 for my next pair of jeans. I had the 105 in a 2 before but lost a lot of weight and sold them. I always wanted the hem to be just a bit shorter... I’m a waist 30-31 and like my thigh to be close to a 12”. Where does this put me in a 105/107? I suspect in a size 1 but with the 107 i worry the top block would be too tight. 
    • 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.
