    Orslow

    I really like orSlow's stuff. @Broark the fabric they use for the shirt is the same as the one they use for the Fatigue Pants? With the warmer weather I see myself wearing the Cargo pants more often
  3. I was always pleased with the hemming from DC4. I don't think there is a better option in Berlin

    Are those your SOC 714? You are coming back to tapered fits, eh?

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    I second Josh, Resolute will stretch a good amount on the waist. Not so much in the thighs though. What inseam do you need? The 710 comes in plenty of inseam length so you often don't have to hem. But your pair is a size 38 if I saw that correctly? Probably a rare size not stocked in all variations
  8. If you want to see absurd pricing (considering the current second hand market), have a look at this official IHUK sales thread... https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=12907.0 175 $ + shipping for a worn pair of SugarCane 1947? You can get a new pair for 199 $ shipped from Self Edge

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Is there someone around here with experience about Veja sneakers and how to size them? Especially the V-12 model

    How many pre-orders are there right now @Bobbo?
  12. From the look of the denim it could be a pair of Resolute but from the wide leg it's rather a 711 than the 710.

    Thanks for the info. You just got them or is this an older acquirement?

    Wrangler Repro Appreciate Thread

    Interesting placement of the coin pocket rivet. Never been into Wrangler but I assume this is a correct placement?

    For those who might be interested in some background, here are some information about Sakomoto, the company that did the indigo dyeing of the yarns. From a Big John blog: https://bigjohn-jeans.com/blogs/news/15643032-the-story-behind-rare-fabric And a brief mention by a guy named Tilmann (not me but it's a rather rare name in Germany so I'm a bit surprised): https://www.sportswear-international.com/news/comment/Exclusive-Travel-Diary-Read-about-Tilmann-Wroebels-journey-to-the-land-of-Japan-Denim-Part-II-13994 Of course you can find more stuff about Sakomoto

    The buttons will be newly posted Denim-Base ones or the Double Volante and donut buttons like on the sample? And another question: who is going to judge this contest (not that I would affect me since...you guys know me.. )?

    Is there an answer re hemming by Kuniyoshi-san? Also who will perform the one-wash? Kuniyoshi, Shingo or Göteborg?

    @JohnM I will take a size 35. Just measured my orSlow 105 size 3 and they are really pretty similar in their measurements. Obviously the waist on the 105 has stretched and measures nearly 36" by using the inner circumference... My Ooe 02 are a size 36 and a bit too loose so I am happy I/we can choose the so often missing size 35

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    ^ the same as on the one-wash pair no, seriously this depends on your washing regime but if you wash in the machine at normal settings they will end up the same. And if you use the dryer as Hayashi-san suggests, it will shrink beyond one-wash measurements

    Having Martin on board I foresee a major photo dump...might reconsider my decision I think this will be my last try to participate at a denim contest. Maybe this time I will finish somehow

    Thanks lance. Funny, your pair of D1554 looks quite different than the one Naoki has on his HP: http://pants-shop-avenue.com/item/D1554/ Your pair has more lining. I noticed some minor shrinkage differences on my D1708 but nothing that would have an effect in terms of fading I think.
