Time to start a new thread for a brand that is rarely seen here although has been mentioned multiple times from different members. @unders owns a pair as well. I have to admit some designs are very questionable, and I'm not sure the Japanese biker style tradition or biker style in general is an excuse.
Anyway, I just got a pair of their jeans, the West Ride 1953XX.
For now I will simply do a photo dump but will update this thread with more information and pictures along the line (hopefully, as the jeans are slimmer than expected).
Watch this space for future posts
The denim is made from Memphis cotton, it's RHT and weighs 13.5oz and features a salmon/faded red selvedge line. The mill is unknown at this point.
While the leather patch red "made by Conner's" it's not confirmed they are actually made by Conner's Sewing Factory.
While the jeans called 1953XX this is not necessarily the year the jeans are based on but rather a nod to the Panhead 1953. The jeans feature the typical details of a late 40s, early 50s pair though.
We have a leather patch, a V-stitch at the top button, hidden back pocket rivets and hidden coin pocket selvedge. The buttons are made of iron and are branded. The rivets are branded as well (WR & Co - SF) and are not rounded. There is a red (rayon?) tab which read WRIDE on both sides. The back pockets feature a Levi-esque arcuate.
The stitching looks like 100% cotton and it already creates some nice puckering although the jeans aren't washed yet. The belt loops are only slightly raised. The stitching around the hidden rivets on the back pockets feature an intentionally "missed stitch" so I expect some early wear&tear in that area but I don't know the story behind that.
