    Ive been researching SugarCane's M-Series on and off for years..it's 99% complete but still a bit of a work in progress.. First up are the 'MP' codes, from what i can gather they originated around the late 80's, there used to be some bits of helpful info on 90's era Japanese blog sites, Geocities and such, sadly nowadays its all been lost or archived... MP-597 XX replica, redline denim, offset loop, what look like a boxy 50,s cut. MP-603 Circa 90/91, white/silver line, off set loop but look more like a '47' cut MP-604 101Z 'Cane's' Riders released from around 1990/91 MP-619 Lee 101, Pinkline, 'Union Made Cane's' button None of the MP models have a patch. Production of the MP codes ends before 1992. I have seen an article in 'Made in Japan' magazine referring to the 1991 release of the M41001 but that was retrospective having been published in 1998, there must have been a few years crossover period. Next up the early 90,s product codes M41072 1922-1936 replica M41028 1873 Repro, No back yoke Single pocket . M41030 Late 30,s 501XX using a 13oz white line denim These came into production in the early 90,s and gained a cloth patch around 1997, There is also a M41030 with standard 'Toyo&CoSPL' fly M41001 Early 90's Laurel leaf model, late 40,s silhouette, 50,s details, pink-line denim M41001 1997 cloth patch model, both of these pairs are a 50's repro/details but their silhouette is more 47-esque, most unlike the wide/boxy (slightly exaggerated SC-55's) M41027 40,s Repro 101-B 14oz denim M41057 WWII 101-B M41051 1936 101 Cowboy Hair on Hide M41101 Mid 30,s 101 Cowboy M41058 11MW M41059 1947 11MW For comparison here's a deadstock pair belonging to Mr. Takahashi (Junky) A comparison of the pinkline denim types through the generations Worth noting that the M41001 & M41030 are 1" undersized comparred to the SC-47's and shrink 'from tagged' M41001 Tagged 32 SC-1947 Tagged 32 Other notable mentions M40333 Bell Bottoms M41151 Painter Pants M41117/M41099 Lot 117 + Lot 99 Ranch Pants, 10oz, buckle back, wide leg M41102 Lot 102 Engineer Pants, 10oz buckle back, wide leg M41104 Lot 104 Tool Pocket, 10oz wide leg M41106 Lot 106 Union Made Logger Pants, 10oz wide leg Next up are the 91-97 M-Series Denim Jackets M11026 WWII 13oz denim (M11317 506XX Cloth Patch +pocket flap +donut buttons) M11001 Type2 without patch/outer stitch M11027 with patch M11028 Type 3 All of the above lots started life circa early 90,s and gained a cloth patch before the end of production in 1997 M11317 213 blouse M11002 (M11327 Blanket Lined) 101-J M11141 11MJ M11142 11MJZ Scovill zipper I hope this helps with the search... If you need anymore info, let me know and i'll see what i can dig up.

    1998 M-series After spending the early 90,s constructing the perfect replica's SugarCane decided to distance itself from strict reproduction. All of the following are SugarCane's own interpretation. M41119 (1st) 66 cut, 14oz course weave moving away from pink or white and into green line denim. The arcs are gone but the red tab is still apparent. Goat skin patch, coming into production in 1998 but due to the transition the early model button backs are still stamped with the S as per the 91-97 Lots. M41200 (2nd) Sugar Cane's own interpretation of a wide leg 1910 model using the 14oz green line denim. A unique looking pair of jeans. No tab or arcs. The selvage is visible around the inside of the waistband, crotch rivet and hammered exposed back pocket rivets reinforced with leather discs. Starting to experiment with pocket bag materials. The button backs are now stamped 98 to indicate year of manufacture. M41300 (3rd) Tapered from hip to hem, 14oz green line denim. 98 button code. Deerskin patch, front rivets now neatly embossed "Sugar Cane" while hidden rivets are stamped with the usual SC&CO TY. Lined back pockets/coin pocket. No tab or arcs. M41400 (4th) Paper patch, Mid 50,s cut, Talon Zipper Model using 14oz green line denim. The red tab returns but no arcs. The patch is the same design as the Deerskin M41300 shown above albeit embossed in red on paper M41301 Brother model to the above using black 14oz white line denim but replacing the zipper with a button fly. M11619 Sharing the same 14oz course weave green-line denim as the M41119 M11400 Same paper patch as the M41400 continuing to move away from reproduction... Six years later Sugar Cane moved on from the M codes to the SC codes which we all know today, bold move to then resurrected both tabs and arcuates when throughout the late 90,s they sought to distanced themselves from their use. 2004 Sugar Cane Lot.1947 Happy hunting..

    Another month, another wash! The fabric on these jeans are crazy and I think it will evolve nice with monthly washes.

    Ive had a FW's Brakeman for a good few years now, ive found the sleeves to be in proportion, well maybe 1/2" too long to allow for a bit of stacking, those Rakuten staff have def sized it wrong I haven't had an issue with single origin sleeve dunkage but that's mainly because im an un-cultured Nescafe Gold Blend kind of fellow...

    Those are looking good, @Aries I picked up these Viberg collab boots not too long ago. The shinki horsehide and the specific design details were too much for me to pass up. The grain probably won't be to everyone's taste, but I certainly love it and I'm sure these will age quite nicely. For a picture of something actually aged, I put a shot of my natty CXL Lofgrens at the bottom as well.

    warehouse denim is drop dead gorgeous. that's the only wh pair I have and I have no idea of what specific fabric has been used. All I know is that it's pretty incredible. Warehouse 1004XX, has seen some wear right before the start of the TCB 20s contest and some wear after the end of it. Just tossed them in the washing machine today for the first time.

    I agree, though very late, the 'James' is a much more versatile wear. Speaking of, my Flathead Rider and Racer jackets have been worn quite a lot these past few months, thought whilst I have a decent camera in my hands I'd snap some pics. First 3 pics are of the Rider, next 3 are of the racer. Stitching is immaculate throughout, as you might expect. I have to say, even for Shinki leather, the Rider leather is on some other planet. The extra "greasing" process Flathead put this one through (if anyone speaks Japanese - https://www.flat-head.com/items/srj-07c/ ) has resulted in just the juiciest leather I've ever handled, and I've been to Tokyo and handled, bought and worn tonnes of Shinki. The Racer leather is also gorgeous; a much more familiar Shinki kind of leather for those who've owned any.

    Been on a roll lately. Picked up these Lofgren combat boots for my birthday, been awhile since I had a new pair of CXL shoes. They're really clean construction wise, and they fit perfectly too. No more shoes for awhile.

    Lot 677J Measurements below - unsoaked. It's sanforized so hope for, and expect, no appreciable shrink. For comparison, the Lot 147 jeans I just got shrank in length 6cm and 0.5/1cm elsewhere after a 30 wash. This is consistent with the Lot 162 jeans I have (measurements a few pages back) Hoping the jelt denim on this chore stays as is. The plan will be to wear it raw and only wash if absolutely essential. It'll take years to get decent wear. Slow-style. Tagged size 44 Pit to pit 61cm Arm from top of shoulder 77cm Arm from pit 50cm Opening 60.5cm (so straight cut) Length 69cm

    They fit like this with the cinch maxxed out. They're loose in the waist and butt but pretty ok everywhere else.

    Just trying out the new camera. Was raining slightly but you can see the left boot grease blot, previously on the side next to the big toe, is now diminished to a little scar.

    X-posting because this thread deserves some loving! Washed my old Denime 506XX about a week ago. No clue about number of washes or how much I've worn it now.
