Thanks for all the well wishes. We're really excited to launch the brand and finally have our store open.
At some point, we will do a special tour for all you nerds.1
Recently picked up the Buzz M-65 (BR11702). Couldn't be happier with the purchase. The EG Field Jacket was also in the running. I'll post more photos in the future.
I received the F/W 08 catalog with the jacket and its awesome, plus its bilingual. I just snapped a photo page detailing "The Gathering of Legends & Pilots". Buzz sponsors the pilots and legends.0
Still CDG2 ... sometime CB Russian Caravan Tea or CDG Monocle Hinoki0

Can anyone recommend a restaraunt similar to Old Town Bar & Restaurant near Union Square (similar pricing/menu)? .
Petes Tavern and their burger is ok0

2. Prune - lunch0
Not to bump an age old thread, but I'm the one that got fucked here. I was looking through my old posts and found this. Anyway, I've sold countless pairs of jeans to members of superfuture and have never had a problem. I've even met most of you nyc guys in person.
I know I sent out the Jean Shops ... so either the item got switched in transit or gmo bought them, switched them, and complained. BTW - I don't have non-selvage jeans. All my other orders were fine and have been fine since I've been on this forum including pairs of Samurais, 45rpm, Eternals, etc etc.0
^ Thanks for the update John. Very exciting stuff.0
US Market Grenson Update:
Grenson's has been sold by a NY showroom for the last 6 months. Should see their stuff at Saks & Bergdorf in 3 weeks.
They also did a boot for Rag & Bone and of course some Paul Stuart stuff.0
see superjetset for a thread like this0
Those leather tab thingys are slightly obnoxious.
Perhaps new, but I think they will look quite good after a year or more. The picture 's perspective doesn't help.
They're not 1920s, but they hold their own against 1930s and 1950s imo.0
I'm in love with the new Duckdiggers! Can't wait to join your club. Warehouse puts out some really great stuff, but this is just amazing! Paging Gordon.
Nice list. Kudos to GQ.
Pre-distressing is an art.
GQ has been loving the NS for years. Of course GQ won't rep a tiny japanese company that is only sold in one store in the us. They already featured (maybe it was Details) Blue in Green, Denim Bar, and SE which is good enought for me.
On a side note, I've seen some amazing worn in Jomon's in the Conde Nast Building.0
Sorry for a "noob" question but what's the difference between a dainite sole and a regular leather sole? What's the advantages/disadvantages of a dainite sole?
Dainite is fine in the rain, but horrible in snow/ice. The little circles get filled in with snow/ice and the soles become quite slick.0
^ Did you bring them unwashed smelly denim to repair?0
I love SDA. I was disappointed by the X-28, but I like their line.
Some of their more outlandish designs I ignore since I don't fully understand the Japanese retail/fashion market.
At least once a season, they make one fugly piece. I assume that piece is produced on the Japanese version of "take your daughter to work day".
As for the lht 003, I'm still unsure about the fades.. its a little soft.0
why hasnt studio been as popular as say samurai or flat head?
Because they make ulgy jeans like the X's-28.
Seriously, I think youll find a few pigboy champions round these parts.
Why not as popular as Flathead?
Flathead makes some nice jeans with some nice denim (5100xx comes to mind), but I don't find anything endearing about the brand. Next.
Why not as popular as Samurai?
Samurai has more fits, what seems like more exclusive denim (SDAs 21 oz jean shared fabric with a few other models from different companies last year), better worldwide customer relations, a bit more variety (Black jeans), and more limited editions (aprox 6/year if not more) and a newsletter.
The real question is how much money all three companys made in 2006. Oink Oink.1
45rpm nandos fly under the rader, at least new.0

If this suit doesn't get you laid on your wedding night, I don't know what will.
Not sure where I could post these... maybe not the ugliest jeans0
3x1 Denim Boutique
Itâ€™s going well. Weâ€™re a small team and itâ€™s a lot of hard work. The effort it takes to produce 16 jeans is about the same as making 100,000. I understand the SF cynicism, but weâ€™re definitely a different experience than Big & SENY. I know the storeâ€™s intimidating, but you guys should come in and see how a jean is made. In terms of customers â€“ most are successful creatives.
