    some roy 'heavy shirt' photos... i've "worn it sometimes and washed it whenever" for the last few years, not anything crazy. the texture, the way the seams pucker, the metallic 'ting' of the nickel/brass buttons... woah. Roy said that the denim was meant to be similar to Lee's "Jelt" but w/o the grey fill. great cone mills loomstate fabric, 9oz 2x1. kinda wild to think he only made 88 of them. the two photos at the end are of when it was new.

    the carhartt canvas/duck lined chore is emperor in its own class, none can better it... (these days the European division are calling it the Michigan... ) personally love a denim chore with denim jeans... first move from carhartt (and a too small vintage montgomery ward) was toward post overalls... whilst they make lots of non-denim chores for the office wearer, they also really get its shape... posted this elsewhere, but 'twas deleted... my 40s reduced material/pocket version w. lvc '44... details a few years back... a beach-side fit... a more recent suede be-decked John Motson fit... a collection of war-time chores from the post overalls blog... [most in love with the shift in neck line from chin strap to that flowing line...] & another post overalls; indigo swirl cloth version (picture with tender 130...) watch pocket and cuff details...

    Well I only wear the leather jackets up to 69/70F and if it's that warm, I just wear a t shirt underneath. It is actually comfortable to me. For example, on Saturday it was cool enough in the evening to wear a leather jacket so I wore one on my walk in 69/70F weather. Today, I wore only a t shirt on my walk in 80F and I felt like I could have used a light jacket when I was in the shade. I just like wearing jackets. I always have. When I was in middle school, I wore a zip sweatshirt all year long at school.

    One of the first things to go, on all of my jeans, is left front pocket opening I don't mind fraying at the top, but once the pocket bag material starts to wear thin between the two rows of topstitching the pocket's in danger of pulling away—better to enforce it now than to replace the whole pocket bag in a few months Anyway, in the last few weeks my R01 Test Lots have been getting to that point… You can see that the pocket bag's totally worn away at the top of the pocket, showing the stitching from the French seam, and that—more importantly—there's not much fabric left at all between the two rows of topstitching My go-to for this is patching over the region, tracing over the existing topstitching by hand, on top, to connect with the denim, and then zig-zagging across the bottom with a machine to hold the pocket bag material and the patch material tightly together The first step's to cut the patch material (here, I'm using a pretty dense cotton chambray) to size and trace over the contour of the pocket opening… Next comes folding along the contour and pressing appropriately… I use a running chainstitch (there's probably a proper name for this, but I never really learned sewing terminology) to connect the patch material to the denim and to protect the opening from further abrasion; if done well, and with a small-gauge thread, this should be invisible from the outside: The patch is now connected to the denim, and the worn region of the pocket bag material is protected from further wear, but the pocket bag itself is still at risk of pulling away since not much remains holding it on—seems like a job for a machine Pockets are shaped kinda weird, and getting the patch material to lie flat against the pocket bag material after attaching them at the top can be difficult. Pins do the job, but you end up needing a lot of them, and some end up being awkward to remove. This is where my secret weapon comes in: Water-soluble fabric tape is a real game changer for patching any areas with weird contours of fabric that don't lend themselves well to stretching flat or pinning in place—just apply one section at a time, making sure each is placed correctly, and the final result is a patch that sits just where you want it: Stitch it up and your jeans are good for at least another year

    @Kit Carruthers - don't make me blush now... its all body shape it seems: I am tall, have long body compared to legs... chores seem to work with that... @ecsong187 - the thing that prevents me from looking tellason is that front pocket - it does the side entry pocket and then some (but I want it more like a vintage Filson napoleon entry-line, not a massive diagonal entry) ... other notable chores for me... the boncoura version... [approximating early 20th century styles circa 1920s but probably earlier?] bought undersize (out of necessity more than choice, but works... long sleeves but short body, a cross now between blouson and chore, achievable due to raglan sleeve...) - all thanks to a tip off from esteemed @Broark-san... pockets, bar-tacking, scalloped front and more... here would be the approximate version of that also from the post overalls blog ... and a more worn fit with tcb20s...

    Bump... Lot 677J I wanted to get through the colder months with layers underneath so made a plan to soak/wash this in Spring in case of shrinkage. Did a cold soak then cold wash, both followed by a line dry, resulting in 1 cm reduction on the arms and length, rest all the same. As @fre-co said, the paper patch dissolved and so I also picked out the stitching that remained (with a helping hand) which looks cleaner. Not worn much so will try to get some wear in this year.

    There's only one article of clothing I own that's sure to outlast me no matter how long I live: this 19oz duck coat from SDA. I remember putting it on the first time--winter of '15-16, I believe--and thinking uh-oh this is actually going to hurt to break in. Favorite buttons of any item I own. Zinc laurels with copper shafts? (I'm not sure what that piece is called):
