    ^what did you do? There you go: My usual routine is to soak the jeans inside out in a bucket to make them more pliable abd then put them directly in the washing machine. My washing machine has a rinsing program so the jeans were rinsed with clear water to remove the starch and sizing agents. I left them in the spin cycle at 400 rpm to get the mostz moisture out of the fabric. Afterwards I hang them to dry. Here are the measurements so you can see how much they shrank (raw/onewash) Waist: 37.5" / 34" Front rise: 14" / 13" Back rise: 17.5" / 16.75" Hips: 22" / 21.25" Thigh: 13.75" / 12.9" Knee: 10.5" / 9.75" Leg opening: 9.4" / 9" Inseam: 36.25" / 33.75" And the fit pics after the soak/wash

    Hope everyone's enjoying the sunshine. Still not bright enough for me to photograph jeans without camera-shake, but still.... one more wash. Does anyone else find they keep losing coins now they have to keep everything in the back pockets?

    I thought I’d chime in with a quick review of the F1-T-B. I’ve been wearing these daily since I got them and so far, I love them. I went with the B variation because for me, they were the most appealing. I do agree with the earlier reviews that they are heavy, but it doesn’t really bother me. I adjusted the side arms and nose pads to my liking, which helps keep the glasses in place. The build quality is very good. In comparison, I own a range of sunglasses from Ray Ban, Adidas (Made in Austria), Neighborhood, VISVIM, and Louis Vuitton. I feel like these are more on par with VISVIM in terms of build quality. I’ve worn mine in the sun and the spill of light through the clip-on lenses did not bother me. In the rain, I took the clip-ons off and used just the yellow tinted lenses. I felt like I was able to see far better wearing these during a typical rainy Vancouver afternoon/evening. It was a pleasant surprise to say the least Maybe I’m not as critical as the others here who commented on their sunglasses but I feel like these are a great pair of regular clip on sunglasses, albeit slightly overpriced. The only thing that really annoys me is that I need to clean off finger prints twice as often as my other sunglasses. Ok one other gripe I had was that the cleaning cloth they threw in felt badly cut. It was like someone took a dull pair of scissors and unevenly cut out a square. I can’t see too many folks buying and keeping these unless they are die hard Acronym fans. For me, I’m very happy I grabbed a pair. Cheers!!!

    So this arrived on Monday but - following much anticipation - just got my hands on it tonight S406xxx M-46 First Half WW2 Denim Been on the edge a while but very glad I took the plunge... as awesome as everyone says! Rapidly taken pre-wash (what's with the crazy lighting, no desire to hang around and retake) and post wash pics Post wash pics are with jacket damp Looking forward to inspecting the details tomorrow... loving the T back...

    Shoot Buddy, I just left Thailand 2 days ago. Timing was off as I was there for the heat but work ended right when rainy season started. I love my 37’s for exactly that reason...lighter weight and loose fit allows for good air circulation. Plus I can cinch and not wear a belt. I like the 201’s for that reason as well. Plus there are so many sidewalk seamstresses to keep them alive ! EDIT: These are ‘33s and I need to unpack my ‘37s.

    @ArmandGLA thank you for the pics, but it is better if you could just post a link or send me dm, making the page tidy and concise.

    Some prewash photos of the jeans and the wabash. Luckily the wabash is already washed, I've got the jeans in the washing machine now. I love the double stitching features around the front and back pockets, and how hairy the wabash fabric is. The only other one I have is from Mister Freedom and it's a lot more flat and traditional by comparison.

    Ok folks, the size 48 is in (2 sizes up from my 50s jacket FYI). Thoughts on fit? It's the one wash version so I reckon I can get further shrinkage out pretty easily with a hot wash/tumble.

    Half an inch shrinkage in chest and shoulders; the length has shrunk a bit more than that and now sits just above the belt.

    Thanks very much for this. Yes, new 126 side-cinch Oxford trousers are now in stock. Here's how they work: I've been wearing a pair of these in indigo/indigo broken twill Taunton for about 6 months, and I'm really pleased with them. Here are some photos: Here they are new, in indigo/indigo Taunton (as above) and in the same fabric woven with ecru cotton yarn: Standard jeans have indeed been out of stock for a while, sorry about this. I'm expecting a full restock around the end of June, although if it's of interest I do have a pair of 136s in Unborn denim in a size 2, which are the same style as 132, just wider in the leg. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

    Final sample is on its way from Japan. By the looks of it I can spoil all the details next week, stay tuned! Oh yeah, Shingo posted another fade sample of the fabric the other day: http://www.denimba.com/2019/05/13/24983 That marbling is the bees knees!
