    Pedro, you could likely chime in on this, but from what I gather, for most families wash day was on Monday and lasted until Tuesday or even Wednesday. I've been reading about this lately after taking another look at a second-hand pair of Sugar Cane jeans I got from Japan. The previous owner had obviously washed them in very hot water as the patch was pretty well fried, but also because the weft was so white and the denim/fades had a different look and feel to it, and there was little in the way of damage or blowouts aside from an unraveling hem. Since then I've been washing with soap powder and hot water but also reading more about how laundry was done in the past. Here are some descriptions from the 1930s, for example: https://www.findmypast.com/1939register/the-home-1939-laundry "On a Sunday evening, copper and dolly tubs might be filled with cold water in preparation for wash day. Clothes were sorted and segregated into woollens and cottons and colours and whites. As modern day biological detergents were not available in 1939, exceptionally dirty clothing like overalls would be left to soak overnight with soap flakes added. White shirts and blouses would stand overnight in cold water containing a "blue" whitener. At the start of wash day the electric copper was turned on, or a coal fire was lit under the brick copper to ensure that the water in the tubs was hot enough. A dolly peg, (an item resembling a four or six-legged wooden stool, out of which a wooden "T" piece protruded), would be used to agitate the items that had been soaking overnight. Rotating the dolly peg in this way was a physically demanding and tiring affair. The washing process itself involved lifting the items from the cold soak and wringing or mangling each item before transferring them, with more soap flakes, into the copper for boiling. Items that remained soiled, even after an overnight soak, were rubbed on a scrubbing board before being transferred to the copper. A clothes mangle, a hand operated machine consisting of two rotating rollers (which presented a quite serious potential hazard to anyone not paying attention), would be used to squeeze out all the excess water. Clothes would then be hung out to dry on a clothes line, or laid over a clothes-horse next to the kitchen or living room fire." Would jeans like these have gone through the same process?

    That's great news, I've been wanting a new pair and these will scratch that itch.

    We're pretty much done tbh. Yesterday Kuniyoshi-san was working on the waistband and like you've seen, also sewing on the patches. Gonna sort out details with shipping etc later today, so we're definitely in the final stretch.

    @Pedro My experience with the Okinawas has been a bit different, though these are the 40301 model (with synthetic indigo) so they’ll likely be faster fading than the natural indigo. I’m quite sure these have only about 6 months of wear (3-5 times weekly), as I only started wearing them intensively this Feb/Mar. They struck me as pretty fast faders, with the first bits of contrast showing up in the initial couple weeks and some actual color change through the thighs, rear, and knees after only 2-3 months. You can tell these photos are a bit overexposed by the patch on the back shot, but they look pretty true to the color in bright lighting.

    My Imperial 120 showed up last weekend! All the details are incredible. Also, I'm not at all know crafty about sewing but the fully single-needle flat felled seam is really impressive Here're some detail shots:

    i recently purchased a used pair of Ooe 1202xx made approximately 8 years ago. trying to learn more about this pair, i’ve been looking through these pages at all of the great Ooe photos, and it’s been great! so nice to see the evolution of Ryo and Hiro’s work, as well as people’s enthusiasm for it. so thanks to all who have contributed here, i really enjoyed going through all your posts and pictures. anyway, i wore a bunch of Ooe today, and i thought i would post a photo of it to share with all the other Ooe fanboys and girls, present and future. wearing the OA01 from 2018, featuring the short-lived but gorgeous XX2 denim, as well as the moleskin cossack windbreaker.

    Stopped for some "fit pics" over breakfast Definitely on the slim and short side, but a size up wouldn't've been right in the neck / shoulders / arms. Works great with a shirt or two underneath and okay with a sweater, but not much more. Luckily for me, that fits 90% of how I'd like to wear it anyway.
