    Vintage Denim?

    Doesn't seem to matter how long I've been into this hobby, but every time I see a pair of "classic" 47's (in ANY condition), it brings a smile to my face and a "damn..." to my mouth
  2. Although I'm completely out priced at this point, a pair of 1946 501XX's would be me grail (any condition really). As far as the repro game, I'm lucky to own all I need from Ooe. Would've been nice to experience their #13 or #36 denim though in an 03XX cut...

    Vintage Denim?

    ^Nigo is displaying his vintage collection in Tokyo at the Bunka Gakuen Costume Musem; I'll be sure to post pictures next month when I visit!

    Love supporting S&S when I can, but reach out to other shops that sell Ooe if you missed out. bF mentioned earlier, but Barnstormer also recently received a shipment. Also keep an eye on Ooe's IG, or reach out in advance, and you'll be able to order from them directly. Admittedly you'll only have maybe one or two chances a year to buy a pair, but it's always worth it. There's definitely not mainstream hype for the brand, so it's certainly possible to buy a pair with some leg work.
  5. Thought this could be fun as I caught myself earlier… Confessions of a denim head: I make a face of disgust whenever I see jeans rolled up and it isn’t selvedge
  6. I don't think you guys get it; You're paying for the time and effort it took to start breaking in all of those pairs!

    No denim, but I'm hoping you'll give some leeway Had the opportunity to try on some vintage goodies recently; Lug to lug seems a bit too long for my wrist, but I promise they wear well in real life and in proportion to my frame. Not that they're mine to worry about wearing anyway haha

    Lighter color fabric (leftish side) = Cone Denim, darker fabric = OAXX4!

    I have a habit of throwing my hemmed denim scraps into the laundry to see how they fade over time. The top fabric is Cone Denim from my OA03XX-BS (Barnstormers) at around ten months old. The bottom fabric is the new OAXX4 fabric from my recent buy earlier this month. As you can see, the new OAXX4 is most definitely a fast fader, with the Cone Denim holding on to it's color very well. I figure it just around 5/6 washes for the new fabric, which is already showing some white from the high impact areas.

    Watches and Denim

    Owned the silver dial for a couple weeks when it first launched; I had my 34mm OP at the time which made me pick out all the things I didn't like about the Tudor unfortunately (looked a bit clunky, bracelet was squeaking)...That said, if I had to choose one, I'd actually go for the BB31 as I'm really trending smaller these days. Haven't revisited as I picked up the 124270 (36mm Explorer) which was probably what I was looking for all along in this type of watch

    With my tiny wrists I'd be happier with a 34 or 36mm but 39mm is reasonable for most wrists. I think it's a watch with broad appeal and the T-fit clasp and non faux riveted bracelet is icing on the cake, but stylistically it's not to my preference due to the fauxtina. Definitely lots of value though if you like the aesthetic!

    Yup these are the new fabric! Unfortunately I don't/didn't measure my jeans before or after, at this point I just order my waist +2 inches (same size in all Ooe to be honest) and know it'll work out lol I washed them on hot + threw them in the dryer once and they turned out fine. They do seem to have a little stretch to them, so the shrinkage part Ryo mentions is likely true (lots of shrink, lots of stretch), but more notably they seem to have crocked more than their past fabrics have from such a wash routine. The fading properties/tendency toward crocking seem quite similar to the speeds of Warehouse fabric this time around. I'm looking forward to breaking them in! The fabric on my OA02XX-505C (I think that's the code?) are some of the harder to fade fabrics I've experienced from Ooe

    @beautiful_FrEaK did you buy Rockets yet? Been eyeing them for a while and realized you already posted about them earlier in this thread Always impressed by his fades on IG, hard to tell even which is vintage vs. Rockets many times!

    Finally got a chance to wash my new OA01XX after receiving last week. Probably the all around best pair of Ooe's yet IMO (though 03 cut remains my favorite fit). Fabric seems to have fairly fast fading properties based on some crocking out of the washing machine, but it's a perfect weight for all seasons: Also gave my 02's a wash, as they'll be relegated to random house/chore wear now that the 01's have arrived. Around 8 months of effective wear, and countless washes: The two together:

    Much appreciated, really just getting started though! I wear them every day, but usually walk around 3 hours a day with little sitting (stand up desk, dog walks, general WFH lol)
