    The smart ones probably do. But not me. So, these are the 1880s natural indigo. For me they are the last great LVC. FOr all their many faults, there was some great work going on, especially from Cone. To think someone grew the indigo, experimented with dyeing, then developed a fabric from scratch for a run of a few 100 jeans is pretty much insane. I put them in a 30 degree wash wihtout soap to shrink them down as I know, being loomstate, these will shrink a lot. At the same time I hand-washed my 1890s then shoved them in the wash with the 1880s. these are the version with Kurabo fabric. Some weird odddities, like a paint finish on the buttons, but some great features, like the very agricultraul rivets. I was alerted to these jeans on sale very early in this thread. £75. THat was probably 12 years ago or more. I have worn them every summer bar the last one, light jeans being perfect for the hot weather. After maybe 10 months of wear, they are starting to look broken-in.

    and post wash. Two different interpretations of an 1800s fabric, with key similarities but also big differences. The Kurabo is very green, which we associate with natural indigo. These are a bit like the 201 fabric, very hard to wear in, with very turquoise mid tones. But these have a much much finer yarn. The 1880s fabric is fascinating, as it really is natural indigo, grown in Tennessee, but is a much more red or even purple hue - like we'd associate with synthetic. It's very fluffy, crinky fabric. You'd expect this to have a similar texture to the Roy Contest loomstate, which was loomstate based on a similar yarn design, but this is fluffier and crinklier. almsot certainly some of this is down to the variations of the cotton, year on year.I love the combination of very fine yarn and very fine stitching. It's one detail that LVC get right. The stitching seems to sink right into the denim, and I lvoe the muted effect in the 1890s. if these are like the 3-pleat jacket, or my old SDA natural indigo which had a fiarly similar hue, these will be absolute bastards to wear in. So i'll see y'all in 10 years. Dr Heech won't know, but I've executed a career swerve to being a teacher. So most of the year denim is weekend only, but for the summer I'll be clad in these babies, 7 days a week.

    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.

    ... and then the orslow 50s version... with 50s oshkosh bib overalls with tender 132 [which works better imo] and details and of course, something approximating from post overalls blog...

    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...

    Hemmed / lightly-used SC40510 Just Drift With Groove They're actually a size too big for me, and I'm likely going to end up selling them off sooner rather than later, but I had always wanted to see a pair of these in person and there was no way I was gonna pass up on the opportunity. If you think you might be interested, let me know—happy to provide measurements, etc., on request.

    @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...

    Haven't bought jeans in a while but saw these two pairs and figured i had to for it. Cant remember anything about the left pair. maybe the natural indigo version of the Hawaii model? hopefully they fit

    SC40510 fit 2" too wide & 3" too short, but I think the two almost cancel each other out
