    yes, would be interesting to confirm. the old patches often had spelling mistakes - the more recent patches mostly corrected that - but with the special releases I would think that the embossing on the rivets and the backing of rivets and buttons might be more telling as it seem that WH had been using their custom hardware,

    This is really helpful. I might try buying Raw and then hand stretching the length whenever I soak/wash. I have had luck doing that with LVC but still a rookie with SC. When I do this, I think the stretch is actually targeting the weave of the fabric rather than elongating the cotton fibers. Sound right?

    Yeah, these have been through the dryer a few times 33–33.5" is about right for most once-washed 50/50 Cane's I've seen, and they all shrink a bit more in the inseam over time
  6. Did you see the fees to set up a US account? Very cost prohibitive. Plus Consumption Tax and Import Duties would cut further into the margin.

    Hey mate, SDA mentioned that the waist / top block will receive minor adjustments after my sample pairs were made... So, it is better to ask Denimio to measure an actual retail pair for you.

    Thanks for this info as it gives me insight on the 50/50 denim. 34W-RAW is reported 35”-35.5” 34W-OW is reported 33” BTW, I recall you occasionally use a clothes dryer. Are your 401’s sometimes dried in a machine? Pedro

    @Foxy2 I have a funny feeling they might be the same period as my "mystery" Lot 2012xx, the patch is the exact same, I also expect them to have the pink selvedge line.

    I'll do my best on the photo's but don't expect too much, one of the main attractions on this pair were the raw measurements that were given, which seem generous for a 34" waist, also they don't have the short inseam disease... Flat measurements Waist about 46.5cm rise about 32.5cm inseam about 90cm

    @501XX4EVER - Don’t forget to post pics of the hardware & the bottoms to see if we can verify the production period...

    Finally. I had wanted the 100th Anniversary Horsehide version they did last year but I'm not willing to pay $2,000 and these are basically the same thing. I also tried to make 10 inch Horsehide Jobmasters like the 100th Anniversary ones but Wesco said they don't have the hides to do this. Sending them Ironheart brass buckles (I wanted custom Silver buckles but Studio Wokini and noone else was willing to do it) and 430 half soles. See you in July-August.

    Very nice! I love that patch. Looking forward to some more photos.
  22. 501XX4EVER


    OK @Broark, you asked for it, I see you and I raise you... Just won these bad boys today, should have them in a week or so... Not as neppy as yours but they look like they have a lot of texture... I'm guessing they're a pair of Lucky Bag or Lightning Festival jeans... Slightly more than I wanted to pay but still very good value in comparison to other brands, I just hope the Customs guys are on their holidays.

    I think it is just the way Buyee works. When you sign up and use PayPal as your payment method you authorize Buyee to take the money out of you account after you win an auction. It's different to Ebay in that from once you win via Buyee you don't get 10 days or so to pay for your item. For example I just won an auction today, (more of that in the Warehouse thread)it finished at around 2;30 in the afternoon, I stepped away from the PC for an hour or so and when I got back I had a e-mail telling me I had "sent" a Paypal payment to Tenso inc, I hadn't actually sent anything, but from once I won the auction the payment is kinda "per-authorized". I also think they don't like you canceling bids, kinda like Ebay, they want to get their fees no matter what.

    Try using it from a PC/Mac, I've had no problems using it on a PC via Firefox. Not very helpful but sometimes you have to go back to basics.

    thank you both kind sirs! [and just to share the basics, doesn't shrink too much [it is receiving 15 min front loader 40c washes], seems to be all cotton stitching - hence lovely puckers - is generously sized everywhere [wearing a 38 whereas for lvc jkt would wear a 44] except for length - but that makes it a nice hoverer between blouson and chore... loving the scalloped front... as wearing it between jkt & shirt the collar is expected first place of blow out / fatigue]

    @Pedro, I have the 401 in a size 34W 34L with the original hems. After repeated wearing + washing, the inseam measures 32.5". I expect this should be about the same for the 36W.
