    Unknown Japanese Brands

    https://www.instagram.com/p/CKlcaY8Hubt/ Fujihara-san of Berberjin did a "collab" of sorts with a seemingly streetwear brand called Marbles. Denim and construction look fairly mainstream, but figured it might interest some as it's modeled after a 1940's cinchback

    What are your favorite denim brands and why?

    I believe this was discussed in the Blunders/General Nonsense thread, but never in a dedicated thread form. For me, the top of the top is easily OOE. Fit, fabric, story, construction, technique, handmade touch, indescribable "it factor" from being made with love and attention, and the overall awesomeness of Ryo and Hiro make it a no brainer for me. I miss the days of custom ordering directly from them, but happy to support Standard & Strange who do so much for the community (shout out to S&S). Other standouts for me are TCB for their dedication and collaboration with the denim community as well as crazy fades, Warehouse for their commitment to detail and accuracy and always pushing forward with new improvements. Honorable mentions, Fullcount for their standard Zimbabwe cotton denim which is super soft with age, and Resolute which I unfortunately can't fit into due to low rises but would otherwise fit my frequent washing routine.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Stunning pair, I'd rate them a 12 out of 10 (a real baker's dozen!) Are they fully lined? I bet my feet would get toasty...

    Perfect fit in my book
  9. Super bump! Anyone wearing repro HBT or general military inspired trousers? Looking for a good M-47 for example

    Peak Indy for me...40538H from Alden Madison, most importantly, on cork neoprene sole just like the OG 405. I understand the trend of Commando soles the last few years for anyone who still follows Alden, but I generally prefer cork or leather soles as they just seem to match these old styles better.

    Not sure if anyone else follows Shoes Radio, but definitely worth it even if you don't understand Japanese for the boots aging alone. Dudes dress pretty on point as well (Rolling Dub Trio crew)

    Glad to see I'm not too far behind our fellow JPN contestants, it really gives me hope as I was expecting to be at least a year behind #175 may be among my most favorite fits!

    Will settle for urban cowboy 1890's instead

    Can't believe we've made it all these years without a general vintage thread...Thanks for thinking of this @Flash, I'll have to dig some stuff out for photos...

    Agreed, beautiful pair already @mandel9000!

    My all time favorite boots...Alden 4060 (HC variation). The 4060 was the design that got me into footwear in the mid-aughts after trying to find a dress boot that replicated the rugged yet dressy vibes of the 1920's-40's that could equally be worn wearing coveralls or a suit. In particular, I find that Alden's Grant last leans in heavy into this aesthetic, and I'm able to wear a dress boot like this all day (or an Indy for example), over heavier boots which now jolt my knees unfortunately. My White's and Wesco's are sadly collecting dust!

    Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Barnstormers says they can sort me out so I may get the 01 cut after all. I'll be happy with either, but I'll go with whichever way the universe tells me to first

    Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Kicking myself as I completely missed out on the pre-order of the Barnstormers. Here's hoping I have better luck with the 03 cut.

    No harm in sizing up; Ooe was the brand that taught me I could and should wear a size 38 and I haven’t looked back since

    Based on simple deduction, the XX27 should be the same denim as the following (peep the selvage ID): https://www.ropedye.com/2012/11/1927-501xx/ Will be cool to get a pair. BTW, they're doing another run with the 03 cut...I'm not sure which I'll go for yet!

    ^Patch looks crazy @roomtemplacroix Also for anyone waiting on those Barnstormer's, I tried to put a reservation down but they said they're trying to determine the price before they can open it up

    Hopefully somewhere out there living his vintage and repro dreams.....Would be cool to see if any of the OG's are on Instagram or any other modern outlets
