    Skull Jeans by An Alchemist

    just bought my 1st pair of realy nice Skull 5002xx WWII jeans at a more than reasonable price. I am impressed by the heavy denim. Does anyone how much it is? I would assume at least 15oz. anyway I wonder why skull lost its popularity alond SuFu!?

    @spiraltoy, i remember these, being one of ther first so called "vault" pieces, not unlike the famous homer jeans. the tapered legs for sure weren´t done by the factory though. these are 1901s btw, since they lack the beltloops.

    Levi's RED

    so it´s been 20 years now since european designed LEVI´S RED appeared to the fashion world. does anyone know if Levi´s is about to celebrate it? after chasing nearly 20 years for it, i recently got a unworn pair of the 1st giants. I really love the cotton/hemp denim which is at the same level as some famous japanese denims. does anybody have any info of the denim? who made this? anyone else into RED?

    the 1890s are rather slim fitted in legs and seat compared to the 1880s. the 80s got a tapered waist, measure really wide at the hips. it´s actually from all cinch backed jeans the most unflattering silhouette.

    In 1946, there only was the 501xx, or maybe in that case a S501xx. But these look very downsized...

    also the triple pleated blouse features buttons sewn on, the buttons look like the ones of the cheaper levi jackets like the 213 (has only one pocket), but also could be from Lee.

    Hi there, the tag tells us that these werde made for the spring/summer season 2008 of LVC. The zipper is irregular though. The denim of japenese production (kaihara), barely shrinks at all, and is able to achieve sick fades. https://www.ropedye.com/2012/12/1967-505/

    I guess you could also ask Dr.Heech at denimbro, if I´m not totally wrong he ones a pleated blouse...

    I guess it would shrink more waist wise than length wise, since the denim is used in a horizontal way. The denim should not became much darker, since the weft is not dyed very deep, it could keep it´s beautiful light blue... but that´s just guessing.

    But why don´t you just dry clean it? is there any bad side effect from it?
