  1. Recently picked up the Sugar Cane 1946 from Bears and they just arrived a couple of days ago. I'm pretty impressed with the denim and the details! The only other 46' pair I have is from the Warehouse 25th Anniversary, and those have been one of my favorite pairs over the past few years. I recently moved to a new state that gets a lot less sun than Los Angeles, but I was never much a photographer to begin with.

  4. acrdb.com is now available; feel free to grab it if you're interested in building anything acr-related. I believe I owe an explanation regarding it. In short, I sourced and contacted a photographer who worked on the first collections and he had not only the missing FW-0607 season but all the first seasons in their original quality straight from the camera. He was willing to share them with me if Errolson would allow it. He sent an email to Errolson and asked for his permission. After two or three months of waiting, Errolson finally replied and instructed him not to share any photos. He expressed his dislike for old seasons being online, as it could lead to people stealing his designs or whatever. After receiving this response, I decided to take down the website and don't bother anymore.

  5. Selling this pair of Lvc 1937 501xx in a size 34x34 New old stock from February 2003, which l guess makes them vintage (?) The 1937 501xx took over from the 1937 '201xx' (which was made between 1996 and 1999). The first 1937 501xx were first manufactured at the Valencia Street factory in 2002, just before the factory closed for good (these would've had 555 stamped on the buttons). These are the next gen 37's made at the Taylor Toggs plant in 2003 (they have 643M stamped on the waist button). They are in an unwashed and unworn condition, only being briefly tried on a few times. They still have some cotton left on the waistband where the label was and also some reddish lines at the bottom of the side stich - this will come out after a wash as it's only tailor's chalk. I've had this on other pairs from this era with similar marks so no worries. The size is 34 x 34 but as with any item of clothing, please look at the measurements and remember that they are shrink to fit so will probably end up around 33x31.5 after numerous washes. Measurements are as follows- - Waist across = 42cm/16.5" Inseam = 81cm/32" (the high rise makes them a 34) Front rise = 33cm/13" Back rise = 42.5cm/16.75" Thigh (from crotch) = 32.5cm/12.75" Hem across = 24cm/9.5" These 37's are a tad darker when compared with later models made outside the USA, this could be the Cone denim used. Price £250 which includes free worldwide shipping and insurance.

  8. I know it’s not the most popular approach but I always take the same size even when the waist is a little bigger (or smaller) - I’ve found that the small variations just reflect the cut, rather than trying to shoehorn every pair of jeans (and trousers) into finding the ‘perfect’ size/fit.

  12. Some pre-wash photos. Nice color on the denim, undecided if I'll start wearing soon or hold off for a couple of months. Buttons on this pair feel a bit nicer than the standard buttons.

  14. Once they arrive he’ll provide measurements and shrink information so you’re all set. I’ve always worn 36 in FW jeans, they end up a little big in the waist but I prefer it these days. The cut is a blend of the 37 and 44-45 jeans. Little larger waist / seat with a mild taper. Go with Seiichiro’s suggestion, he won’t lead you astray.

  19. @Dr_Heech listen to Hoosier. Some people had similar issues with the 1937 like @LazyS who ordered his normal size and they are much bigger/roomier. I got lucky and sized down from a 33 to a 32 in my 1937 and they fit perfect.

  20. The boy has just whooped me 6-4 6-4 at tennis .. what sucks is i'm actually a much better player (honestly i am) but being 14 he'll run down every single damn ball whereas if the ball is at one side of the court and he hits the ball to the opposite side.. i don't bother running for it if i know i won't get there in time to return it.. so the odds swing into his favour... this isn't going to get any better for me is it?

  21. Thanks mate, just wondered as the fella from Hoosier said the 42 model is wider on the waist and suggested moving down a size from my usual 601xx 47's, which were a size 33. I used to have some size 32 47s but they became too tight so am just curious as don't want to mess up. The guy from Hoosier said he'd pre-order me a pair of size 32 and 33 in non-wash and then go from there (?)

  23. Got this N1 recently and what a beast of a jacket it is. It's hefty - just weighed it at 2.3kg / 5lb - and warm for sure, in a way that clearly photos can never bring across. At the moment it's wearing me but after a winter or two it'll soften up both in the outer jungle cloth and the alpaca lining. I won't be climbing mountains in it but I will be undertaking important urban manoeuvres in it like going for strolls and coffee and watching football.

  28. Nah I’m all good, already seen it. I’m only interested in the MS exclusives at this point. About 90% of the mass produced stuff from the last 2ish years has been pretty fucking underwhelming bordering on straight up ugly. They need to fire Ian Wang or give him a sub-label or some shit.

  31. @Dr_Heech I'm planning to pass on the 42s mate as I've got a few tuxes on the go as it is. I'd already put an order in for the new SC 43s... though before the actual sizes are announced so we'll see how that turns out. To Duke's point, I kept the same size 34 with the 37s. Yeah they're a big bigger on the waist but jeans soon mould to you anyway and also think it works with the cut. I'm sure the size 33 would be work ok too. Seiichiro is a top man so sure he'll take care of you.

  32. Cheers Shred, l have bought from Hoosier before and enjoy the honest communication. Their measurements haven't let me down yet. I will take their advice and wait for clear measurements of both sizes before making my choice.

  37. Just postponed, no more details, versus an academy too... what have the groundsmen been doing??? Similarly, I recall playing football matches in the snow... and that was with a white ball! Who needs these new-fangled glowy orange balls eh. In Duke's day, back in the late 1800s, there were no complaints with footballs made out of sheep's bladders... absolutely rock solid when frozen too 😜 Anyhow instead we went to the gym together... and hammered loads of Kurdish kebabs afterwards... the gaff is not the most salubrious, but the lads are super welcoming (and we're the only non-Kurds I've ever seen in there) and they do a mean bit of meat over charcoal with all the trappings... and only £20 for 6 skewers, 4 cups of sweet tea and all the mashings... what's not to love

  38. This. A little peak may - with emphasis on the may - pass muster but, for me, it's tucked under a type 1. 'To tuck or not to tuck' is an age old connundrum. With longer chore jackets where there's no peaking, untucked can be ok imo. However if the shirt is super long, we're getting into dress territory.

  39. Following the nice review from @beautiful_FrEaK I have a couple of observations after wearing my pair of 47s for around a year. 1. Compared to other jeans with a similar medium rise, I find the 47s quite unforgiving of hip-slip. By which I mean, I have to wear a belt to keep them high on my hips otherwise the fit becomes quite unflattering. This isn’t necessarily a problem, but I don’t love wearing a belt. This may also be peculiar to my body shape. 2. The long fly placket that bF mentioned really accentuates the twist of the top block after a few washes and the top of the fly ends up quite significantly displaced from the centre. Again, not necessary a problem, but it can look quite funny if worn with a shirt. The placket of the shirt will sit an inch or more sideways from the fly placket (apparently this alignment is known as the ‘gig line’ in military parlance). Generally I think they’re a nice pair of jeans, but these two points somehow mean I don’t find them as easy to wear as other pairs I own.

  41. Aren't your FW not perfectly sewn and also a repro pair?! Anyway: some people want authenticity (whatever this could mean, @Duke Mantee loves this topic ) and see the charm in imperfections. Some people want perfectly sewn jeans but still want jeans from yesteryear. So I see both things to be valid/desired.

  42. Pretty stoked to be featured in Fullcount's SS24 Lookbook. I do a bit of this stuff for the brands I've worked for and different photographer friends over the years, but never for a brand like Fullcount that I've worn for a decade and truly loved as just a cut above the other jeans makers out there. Honored to participate alongside the others and see this come to life.
