    BAPE & Nigo's origins

    my understanding is he didn't come from wealth (his dad worked in a metal yard from memory) unlike many of his contemporaries. he studied at bunka and got a job at popeye magazine, both of which opened a lot of early doors/connections to him.

    Imperial Jeans

    it's interesting they decided to come back after so many years of radio silence, even moreso since kiya seems to suggest there will just be one (final) release and no future plans. i remember trying on a pair of shearers over a decade ago now.

    can anyone comment on sizing for the seamens? i have a bit of TCB, but no pants - the closest thing i own are wrecking crew overalls in sz 36. usually wear a 33-36 in most trousers/denim, so was tossing up between 34/36.

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    i have a well-worn TCB type 2 (OG version/cut) that i love and still has a ton of life, but i've sadly put on weight and can't button it up at all anymore. what would be a good type 2 replacement? orslow looks decent, although something a hair cheaper would be ideal... i should also say i'm very fussy with sleeve length on denim jackets (prefer shorter if anything) and my TCB is perfect in that regard.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    it's interesting in that i had the exact same experience with my '66s. the first maybe six months were great, but then they just shrunk too much over time (particularly at the thigh). i'd like to try again in the future in a size up.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    re: previous page, my normal wedding outfit these days include trickers ilkley in brown zug (half size too big, but got them on crazy discount) + a navy ripstop casual "suit" by nigel cabourn. i'm sure grenson or similar have a more affordable alternative.
  8. i really don't understand the thinking behind interior leather/cowhide sweatbands in caps (e.g. poten) other than they're considered a 'premium' material. i personally find them super uncomfortable, particularly in (australian) summer as the sweat doesn't get absorbed and just irritates your skin.
