    I've ordered a pair! will let you know. Hiroshi San is not a professional, jeans are entirely made by him in his free time, so there's a long wait (they'll be ready in april). All single stitching, and he still doens't have a Union Special for the hems. I like the cut on his fit pics very much. The arcs are horrible but I plan to levisify them as soon as the jeans will be in my hands! The jeans are not repro style, he makes two models, XX and S (WWII) which basically incorporate the typical vintage style features on an original fit. i like the fit on him very much. Denim is heavier than what I usually like and use (15 oz unsanforized, don't know from which mill), but I like the idea of trying out something completely new and different, and being the first overseas guinea pig, why not! This will be his first pair in a size 36, so basically he checked throughly with me every single measurement to make sure it'll work for me. nice fella.

    The fact it looks nicer in person and the fact it is sold out doesn't make me want to drop a grand on it still

    I wore my Edwin Lee 101B for our trip to Copenhagen last weekend. Great jeans that feel even higher-rise than the 20s, which I can combine with my TCB Navy Jumper. Really enjoyed the change. We spotted this on the way to lunch... plus a skinny looking dude, something of a contrast to the portly character I kept seeing in the over-large mirrors of the house we were staying in.

    Not a dumb question at all. One of the best Japanese Levi's repros is TCB - check out this page for a comparison of their 55 vs the Levi's one: Short answer: LVC fabric by Cone is truer to the original, plus the construction is more accurate. Often you find Japanese repros have better hardware and that's the case here - TCB has, for instance, much nicer thread, and the little red tag scrunches up much more like the original, and it has nicer puckering on the seams. People often talk about the difference in the denim - and Japanese denim is mostly different from Cone, as most brands dial in far more imperfections (and many are designed to show wear more quickly). Not all do - SDA for instance have fabric that's not over-slubby and wears more slowly, exactly like Cone. The Japanese, slubbier approach is a kind of idealised take on the fabric, which is valid in itself as it looks good. If you compare to the originals, the Levi's denim made by Cone is more accurate. But Cone's mill in Greensboro has just closed down, sadly. From memory, LVC's next run of repros will have Cone denim - then who knows what the next batch will look like? It's likely they'll use fabric by Kaihara, which is good, but some of the made-in-the-USA magic will undoubtedly be gone.

    Washed my 1966 jeans again and did a tumble dry. They're quite light in colour, and I'm aiming for some low contrast fades that are vintage-esque. For the last month, I've only been wearing them around 3-4 times a week.

    I started wearing my 60s jeans again in lieu of my 20s contest pair until I receive my new pair. I also had he pleasure of attending a Chinese New Years party with some good friends where they were making dumplings. We finished the night with some incredible aged Chinese tea brought with my friends when they immigrated to San Francisco.
