    Yes! This makeup has been ordered by The Bureau Belfast and should be with them around in the next couple of weeks- please check with them directly for availability. The colour comes out really nicely on the jute.

    I've just unpacked these, and Morten's really outdone himself. These have come out really special- thank you Morten! There are two versions, one a restock of navy elastic, and one with front straps folded up from the indigo bicolore canvas woven for new season jackets:
  3. Evisu is still loved!

    It'd be good to see the inner tags/buttons etc, but these look legit to me. When these were made, Evisu intl was just using No2 to mean all pre-shrunk denim, including this (D85/Rising Sun, woven in China) No3 was a later name for the same fabric, when No2 started being used for sanforized Japanese redline selvage. Hope this helps!

    thank you! Sorry for the delay responding. This is the same Type 930 Double Front Butterfly Jacket, that's available already in some other fabrics, but this version is made up in cotton/jute sawtooth twill. I'll have them on the Stores in a couple of weeks, and they'll also be at Mutiny NY, Neighbour Vancouver, Meadow Malmö, and Always In Colour Exeter. I'll put up some detail shots as soon as stock comes in from the factory. I do actually have one piece already, pre-production, in a size 3- please email me if you're interested and need measurements etc. That's right! Thank you very much Morten- I'm looking forward to opening these up and getting them online later in the week. More soon. I'm so sorry Julian, you're absolutely right I missed this at the bottom of the last page. I'm so pleased you'r happy with your socks. The two pairs you have which are Unborn are fresh off the knitting machine- you'll even be able to see the loose stitches of water soluble yarn at the tops, which will dissolve and disappear with the first wash. They'll also shrink down to size, to fit the same as the two dyed pairs your have. Your dyed pairs were dyed quite hot and tumble dried, so you don't really need to worry about how hot you dye the ecru pairs- they won't shrink further than the dyed pairs. As far as dyeing goes, they should be relatively simple, especially if you're not too worried about getting an even colour. Wool fibres (eg these mohair and alpaca) tend to dye more easily than cotton, so you should get a decent result. You may find that the alpaca dyes a bit more deeply than the mohair- I think this is because mohair is a smoother, shinier, less fluffy fibre than alpaca, so the dye sticks to it less readily, but I think you'll get a decent result with both. Let us know how you get on!

    Thank you Cal! Really appreciate it. The ecru jackets are being sewn at the moment. I'll have stock available, and in the US they'll be at Unionmade/Mill. Delivery should be around the end of the month, but I'm sure if you contact them they'd be happy to let you know when they receive their stock. Please just email me if you need any more information.

    some pictures in today from Andy, the owner of the excellent Always In Colour, in Exeter. These are of his Type 944 folded morning coat, in Prussian blue dyed wool-cotton awning stripe, taken on Dartmoor:

    here's another photo from Kirk, this time two special Stores pieces- a 420 tail shirt made from Irish-woven check using deadstock 60s cotton yarn, with 132s cut from English-woven deckchair canvas:

    thank you! Your socks will go out shortly- you've made a really nice selection

    ^I'm afraid the feet are cotton, with mohair stripes up the ankle/calf. That said, they're full terry stitch over the feet, like a loop-back sweatshirt, so they're very comfy and substantial, while still being nice and soft. I hope this helps!

    is that the new Air King with the 5 minute markers? Photos please!
  11. Watches and Denim

    does anyone have a modern Explorer I? The more I look around the more I come to think this would be my one watch (if I was looking to buy a new expensive watch, which I'm really not)
  12. Watches and Denim

    Fantastic! great to see it in a real-world photo. I love the different coloured hands and the angled bezel (I guess so it can be unscrewed?). I hope you're very happy with it :-) Lovely too. I have a soft spot for these, in the same compartment of my brain that I'd put G Shocks. Love the patina on the dial. It'll be really interesting to see how these are seen in 30 years or so, when they're as old as 50s/60s watches are now

    Speaking of new season shirts, I promised more details soon- here are some diagrams showing the design and construction of the two new basic styles:

    ^further to that, I've just been sorting out stock, I don't actually have stock to go online, so they'll all be with stockists. Please let me know if you need more information, although the above are a good place to start. In other news, a loyal customer and dear friend of the brand, Kirk, has sent over some great photos of his latest pieces, taken in Kauai. Shared with permission and many thanks! Type 418 shortsleeve pullover shirt in fawn logwood-dyed wave calico, gin clear slimmer flat top sunglasses: Type 484 short-sleeved tesseract shirt, rinsed indigo pick-stripe cotton lawn: Type 921 edited tail jacket, rinsed linen insulating twill, clear glass mouth-blown tumbler and some more great images of the same things!
