    Arguably my favorite jeans of all time, the 1702XX contest jeans. Don't wear these much as they need quite a few repairs at this point, but I decided to wear them today and it reminded me how much I love 'em. Can't wait for the next contest!

    received my size p31 today. don't have any fit photos but i can say that the p31 fit is almost the same as the p23a without the cuffs. the drop on the crotch is the same and almost the same exact length. these will be great every day pants. i added a photo which might be hard to see. p31 over p23a over p30 laid flat for anyone who would think the drop was too low .

    Principal diff. is the zipper - hence the 'R'

    Anyone find that if you don't wear a pair for over 4 months they become "musty"? They are not dirty and have hardly any wear, so I'm wondering if it's due to storage and what the solutions are, as I can smell it so I'm sure others can too.

    Not a bad idea, you could get rid of the patch too, unless it’s doubling up as an additional belt loop (ie functional). They would be a logical evolution of the WW2 model, ie the WW3 model!

    Second wash but first machine wash for my OA02XX from 2017. I’ll upload comparaison picture with the OA03XX when I get the chance ! The shades of blue are wonderful and the roping (done at DC4) is getting better. This wash reminded me of how much they stretch and shrink ! stay tuned

    I just got these yesterday. Loving the raw fit and thinking it will be even better after I give them a soak. Pretty excited for my first pair of SDA as I’ve been wanting to try the 15OZ denim.

    I get that many of us here prefer how the forums worked back in the day. But I think nostalgia colours our memories. Sponsorship and 'shilling' didn't start with IG - it was here too, a decade ago. I think also, with complex social issues like this one, it's better to be flexible and think laterally. Some guys get very rigid with this type of stuff, and all it does is isolate the individual in the long term. Adapt or die, to put it bluntly. Some dudes don't like IG and reddit - certainly not perfect ecosystems by any measure - and not using such media probably does contribute to better life satisfaction and mental health in the long term. FOMO is real and toxic for sure. This forum is part of that too - I was able to enjoy my hobbies more the few years I wasn't reading SuFu. Just being happy with what I have and enjoying this hobby in a mindful way is something I'm still trying to master. However, if we really want to get immersed in this hobby, forums like this is no longer adequate IMO. IG offers vastly superior communication tools, for example, and allows much more efficient networking. For example, nowadays I can message brands and shops directly with a modern messaging system, plan projects, etc - this could not have happened if I only hung around here. Just to clarify: I don't get paid money for anything. Re: my opinion of myself - yep, totally, I like to upload my thoughts on the internet, for sure. But like a few others here, I've been into denim for a while, and I believe my opinions can be of value to others. I tend to be quite forward and challenging of others with my own perspectives too, which can be confronting for others - but, that is, authentically me. Re: whether I'm an enthusiast or advertiser - feel free to read my blog and check out the content I've posted on this forum in the past years. See also the community events I've participated in or organised. I do believe I've contributed in an honest and meaningful way, but that is only my perspective.

    I am really late to this whole party of IG and Influencers. Reading @mikecch above I at first thought he has a rather inflated opinion of himself and his opinions BUT the fact these brands pay him is good evidence people actually put value in what he says. What a wild concept to me. I am exclusive to SugarCane based on each item description from the Brand which are backed up by photos. Why would anyone take the advice of a guy who gets monetary gain about the product he is shilling? It lacks authenticity. Its not real...its fiction. Its like reading comparisons of motorcycles in various publications, they never offer criticisms but only cheerleading. That being said, mike is just an advertiser...no ill will mike. BTW Buddy. Would you do a write-up for Aero Leather in a Size 44 Brown Horsehide Longshoreman with the sheerling lining and then sell it to me at a big discount? Spread the Wealth ;-)
