    Good stuff @MJF9. Looking forward to see it age. You weren’t tempted on a pair of their jeans..?

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Looking back through the mists of time, my first post would have been sometime between 2002 - 2004. I remember I’d have been at the Uni library as I didn’t have a laptop and smartphones weren’t around. I think I was asking advice for a hat (which I didn’t buy). I didn’t post regularly until years later as I didn’t have the tech, and as BF says it was fucking savage around here. In them days you needed a decent camera and a PC or laptop. I was more interested in paying for beer and lodgings than getting abused online. First JP purchase was a FH 7001 western shirt. I think I used the very same post that explained the Rakuten forms. Then closed my eyes, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.

    For sure. And then introduce the concept of a world tour just to fully weird out the ‘norms’. There’s probably a good reason there’s only 20 posters here…

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Also, something 00 touched on earlier and I just mentioned, I very rarely discuss my denim hobby with folk. Are others here the same? Other than my family (as the poor sods have to witness it first hand) hardly anybody knows. When I do mention it I’m very brief and quickly change subject - like it’s some dirty secret. I just assume people will think it’s a bit strange / vain / boring. Maybe if I were a bit more enthused when discussing it, it may peak others’ interest.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Bit late to the discussion, but I had a little dalliance with heavy weight denim a few years back and picked up 21oz Oni and SDA, and absolutely hated how they aged and felt. They were a nice talking point with the few people that know about my hobby - mostly as it gave people a further opportunity to chuckle at me! So I’d put those up as something I don’t enjoy but not because they don’t work with an outfit - just not my vibe. I do have a black filson tin cloth vest that’s never seen the light of day. Surely the fact I hid it from my better half and then, when discovered, grossly under-egged the price I paid for it was probably a sign. Again, verging on the cosplay thing for me.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Have Sugar Cane said whether the 1937s are a permanent addition to their range or a one-off / one-season? @JMS - yours look great. The fact you’ve bought two makes me think you know something I don’t and I need to get my arse in gear. Did you size up like size charts suggest?

    Vintage clothing and footwear

    @smoothsailor I definitely think perceptions have changed. When I grew up in the 90s/00s the primary way to get used clothing was at a market or a charity shop - so that came with a certain stigma (trendy London markets will have been an exception though). Then with more bricks & mortar vintage clothing stores (which picked up in the 2000s in U.K.) and the rise of eBay, Etsy etc it got a whole lot more accessible so I guess that stigma fell away. It seems at some point it moved from a poverty thing to a trendy thing (or maybe poverty is cool?? as long as you’re not actually skint…) I dunno, perhaps The Strokes kickstarted it. But to answer your question, most kids around here either wear sportswear, 90s/early 00s inspired clothing or actual 90s/early 00s clothing. So definitely no issues with wearing vintage.

    Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    Thanks @fre-co - your little man’s got great style Tell me about it @goodrain. He’s got issues with wearing shoes that fit him properly. The clown footwear is far preferable to the tantrums!

    Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    Plan was for my eldest (9) to wear the Nippers (7-8) for as long as possible by keeping them on 20c washes. But Mrs U had other ideas and chucked them in at 60, right side round, followed by a spin in the dryer . A denim novice and zero shits given for the environment- shocking. Although they do look great for it They’re now property of the 7yr old: @Flash We demand larger sizes!!
