    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.

    Post your DUCKS!

    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.

    @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'

    I thought History Preservation carried the version without the stencil as well @mlwdp.

    Can confirm this... they’re X-pac production is only for ACR.. but cordura stuff is worth it.

    My 34 800s that I bought a year ago measure about 88cm after some wear. I can wear them comfortably, and I generally buy jeans that are 90cm before shrinking. The newer models come with the 32in/81cm inseam.

    I’ve been personally putting off getting the N-1 with the US NAVY logo on the back due to some personal reasons reflecting some lifestyle changes. I’ll decide if I want to go through with getting the jacket once the new year starts. I can get it now but I’m holding off so I can really appreciate it later.

    My post to which you are responding already made this clear. There is no way they are "true vintage" or LVC. Absolutely nothing is correct for either. And even without any specific jeans knowledge, you can look at the interior tag material, style, typeface, etc. and use your common sense and general used clothing instincts to see that they are likely from the late '80s at the very earliest – probably later. As for whether they are actually Levi's or not, I have no idea. While they tend to scream "FAKE," the Levi's company have certainly made weirder combinations of features over the years. The top button didn't look "right" to me in your initial pix, but I wasn't quite willing to make a judgment that it wasn't a real Levi's button based only on a low-res pic.

    Acronym.

    Bagjack will do custom stuff, so if you want something completely unbranded, you can just shoot them an email. I’ve heard they won’t do x-pac stuff, but their cordura stuff is quite nice, and would work well on a J1TS.

    Maybe look at Bagjack? They made/still make bags for ACR and are highly recommended overall. Not sure if their pouches are low profile enough for you. I also got a semi-custom phone pouch from the guy at AMDUS Project that I absolutely love/use daily. He's occasionally on the TWG Discord server and on Reddit as well. I mention him because he may be able to do a custom job for you if there's something you are looking for you can't find elsewhere.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    I got the once washed version and I’m quite surprised as they are thicker than I imagined is the resolute once washed not. As harsh as a lot of the other brands ?

    ^ dada, that's a good question. My guess is that you'll be fine -- the denim is stretchy. It's true that my size 34 pair didn't shrink down quite that far but there are a couple of things to consider. First, one-wash jeans typically get a pretty heavy duty, hot wash, so most of the shrinkage is already there. Second, measuring techniques differ -- I pull the waist a bit before measuring. Maybe the 84cm comes from just laying a tape measure or ruler across the jeans without pulling. Third, does the vendor have a few pairs in stock? There can be minor variation between pairs, as we know. Your question peaked my curiosity about the 800 cut, so I put them on this morning. Sorry to say I really like them still -- if I didn't, I was just going to sell you my raw pair ;-) The 800 is different than other Warehouse jeans. As I said earlier, the inseam is longer, which is nice. It also has a highish rise but it's trim through the hips and legs, with a nice, but not overly large, leg opening. The denim is also really nice -- feels thick but soft.

    Pouch question for everyone here. What other brands are out there that make decent pouches, specifically ones that would be slim and light for Tec Sys jackets? I come from an outdoors background so I know all the good military brands and websites, but none of them make low profile pockets I would want to put on my J1TS-S or a J64TS-S. They all look a bit bulky and lack that certain aesthetic. Triple Aught Design OP1 is a great pouch I have on my backpacks, but it's too weighty for J1 front panel. The only brands I know of other than Acronym that have that low profile look are; Enfin Leve, Orbit Design (I have a few of their pouches) and AOKU. I'm hoping there's some more out there. Any recommendations appreciated
