    • Thanks, but they don’t carry the sc41701, maybe Denimio can find some
    • ^ Thanks b_F -- I may be too old for Instagram, but did message him there ;-) This discussion of Levi's jeans of the past (and their unique characteristics) is interesting to me since I used to buy them when I was a kid in the 60s -- or my mom used to buy them for me.  They were thick, flat, and stiff, shrank a lot, and had a sort of odd, baggy, straight, non-contoured fit.  They weren't necessarily cool at the time (or 'Boss'!) but they were interesting and different, since you had to soak them.  I sometimes think of Roy Slaper's comment (or a messed up paraphrase of something he may have said) that jeans are an ill-fitting garment.  That's pretty much how the 501 felt to me at the time. And now we're trying to build in these characteristics from decades ago.  Reminds me of when I took my Dad (now long gone) to a nice B&B in northern California for his 80th birthday.  After taking one look at the inside, he said, "Thanks very much for arranging this for my birthday.  I'm sure we'll have a great time.  But, just so you know, I grew up with bathtubs with legs and hardwood floors.  Now I like wall-to-wall carpeting and air conditioning."
    • Self Edge, History Preservation Associates and you can proxy through Denimio.
    • You don't have to understand it or like it. Everyone has their own ideal. Brands like SDA and the like are making idealized iterations of vintage jeans, taking inspiration and want to make perfect jeans. Therefore I expect "perfect" sewing. With CSF it's different: he tries to make the perfect reproduction of actual vintage Levi's jeans. So if you would own a deadstock pair of Levi's 501XX from 1943 and this pair has all this failures, wonky stitching and loose threads and you want to make a copy, what would you do? Konaka-san has examined a lot of real vintage jeans, saw these failures and adopted them for his jeans. And if you are like Flash or myself and a real deadstock pair is out of reach, CSF is the second best option. Although I admit, the price is steep.   Edit: @JohnM hey mate, I still owe you a mail! It's a bit odd. You waited over a month, it's ok to write him again and ask about a time frame. He surely busy with the new 1942 model though but he still answers on IG.
    • The Okinawa and Hawaii SC41701 jeans are interesting, anyone know a shop that has them with a longer than 30 inch Inseam? I can only find them at PSA
