    Stevenson Overall Co's Summer Collection! This new summer collection from Stevenson is quite impressive. First off we have some beautiful high-gauge cotton knit shirts; these feel so good on and the colors are just right. For the new collection Stevenson has done a new version of their thermal short sleeve henley shirts, this time with a woven in stripe, available in indigo or black. We also have a new flannel shirt with an interesting use of two slightly different patterns on the same shirt, type II jackets in ivory selvedge denim, Tanguis cotton boxer briefs in a new charcoal color, and a full restock of jeans, tees, and sweaters. All these items are available now at all of our stores. Shop Stevenson Online

    Sugar Cane have no plans to develop a denim jacket with hand pockets, but hopefully they decide to do on in the near future. For the time being we're doing multiple denim jackets with Iron Heart with hand pockets, and even some lighter weight ones in 14oz denim.

    Nine Lives Marshall Islander Twill Summer Shirts We have one of our favorite releases we've seen from Nine Lives this week, a short sleeve shirt made of a custom 100% cotton twill. These have a triple-needle sewn body, bi-swing action shoulders, invisible stitch chest pockets, and are made of a specially formulated cotton twill which is has a nice heft to it but is extremely soft to the touch. These shirts are available now in white, gray, or yarn-dyed indigo. Shop Nine Lives Online
  7. Real Japan Blues - Jeans & Shirts...

    It is, but the vintage shirt is slightly different than the pattern you're seeing on the RJB and Gitman versions, while the Gitman version is identical to the RJB version.
  8. Real Japan Blues - Jeans & Shirts...

    Gitman knocked off RJB's fabric/pattern. RJB's is a high density rayon, Gitman's is not. On that note, Adam has been shopping at SELA and SEMX for many years buying mostly Flat Head and RJB shirts. EDIT: Just remembered also that when FH or RJB do a really special rayon fabric they'll print in "Flat Head" repellently into the selvedge ID on the inside of the shirt, they do this to show customers that this wasn't just stock fabric they've used.

    Iron Heart Overdyed 301s Slim Tapered Jean & Indigo Linen Shirts For the first time in many years we have Iron Heart's slim tapered 301 fit in an overdyed version, this time using their famed 18oz vintage denim as the base. This jean has a nice slim fit with some taper below the knee and will age in some super crazy manner due to the overdye process they've gone through. We've also received their new indigo-dyed herringbone linen shirt, made for us with round snaps (as opposed to diamond shaped) for a more mellow look. Both of these items are available now at all of our stores and online. Shop Iron Heart Online

    Iron Heart Corduroy Type III, Jungle Camo Jacket, & 21oz Denim Type III with Hand-Pockets This week we have three different jackets from Iron Heart, perfect for various climates, and made with some interesting fabrics. First off we have their new corduroy Type III jacket, this comes in a slightly modified length and has hand pockets. We had been waiting for this since we saw samples as not only does it fit great but they nailed the feel of the corduroy. Next up we have a new Jungle Camo jacket with a custom nylon Iron Heart camo outer and a micro-brushed flannel liner. This has snap buttoned hand pockets and a waist drawstring. Lastly we have their new 21oz sanforized denim Type III, now made with hand pockets and a slightly lengthened body so it can be worn with an untucked shirt underneath without looking funny. All three of these are available now with a full restock of the 633 straight tapered jean in various fabrics, which is now available in 7 different styles. Shop Iron Heart Online
  11. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    I have..the quality of the tee is fine, but I'm not into the fit. The sleeves are abnormally wide/baggy for such a slim fitting t-shirt. If you're looking for a great quality tee that goes up to larger sizes check out the Strike Gold tees, they're now made up to XXL (with side seam only on the larger sizes).
  12. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    The only two brands who actually own their own loopwheeling machines are Merz B. Schwanen and Flat Head. Merz own an entire factory which they revived around ten years ago and the factory only produces for Merz outside of a couple of instances where they made product for another brand. Flat Head owns 4 machines, one is toured around for display at shows and the other three are sitting in a factory producing their own t-shirts. In Japan there are two main factories making true loopwheeled textiles, the big one is Kanekichi which was mentioned above. Warehouse/Human Made uses them along with a slew of other Japanese brands, including Loopwheeler.

These tees, socks, and a small restock of their bandanas are available now at all of our stores. Shop Human Made Online

It's made of their weather-proof 100% cotton Vancloth fabric. If you've ever wanted a gauyabera, this is your chance as it fits perfectly and comes in an understated all black color.

    Pure Blue Japan Deep Indigo Jeans & Slubby Black/Black Jeans We've just received two new models from Pure Blue Japan! First up we have a beautiful new denim where they used their slub cotton fiber pure indigo-dyed yarns for the warp and weft of the jean and used tonal constructional stitching for a dark and understated look. These will look truly unreal once they've been broken in as both the warp and weft will show character during the aging process quite quickly. We also now have their popular slubby black/black selvedge denim jean available in their slim tapered fit to go along with the straight tapered version we received last month. Both of these jeans are available now at all of our stores including our online store. Shop Pure Blue Japan Online
