    Kapital jeans

    very glad i didn't hem; just (hand) washed these in cold water and the inseam shrank a further inch.

    selling my sugar cane SC42966 jeans, size 32 and chainstitch hemmed to approx 31.5". worn for about 6 months; there is definitely some wear, but no rips/holes (inc at the crotch). unfortunately shipping from australia is often expensive (particularly to the UK), so please keep that in mind. saying that, the australian dollar is terrible at the moment, so it might even itself out somewhat. happy to take more photos etc if needed. $230 AUD (approx. $162 USD / 120 GBP at time of posting) without shipping. a new pair on self edge retail for $265 USD, so i thought this would be reasonable. if it isn't, let me know.

    what a petty loser, even moreso when you consider the dude's entire business is essentially based on copying others. reminds me a bit of full count going after TCB, which is another ridiculous case and made me stop supporting FC altogether. i wish DS stood his ground. edited because i can't type. libel case when?

    Kapital jeans

    just received some OW monkey ciscos in the 'standard' 14oz denim. does anyone have any experience with shrinkage before i get them hemmed? i assume there will be little to none in length, but i've been stung with other labels before. might hold off and wear chunky cuffs until their first (cold) wash at home.

    i've wanted to try the 66s for a while, but i hate the back pocket stitching and had a bad experience in the past with a seam ripper...

    TCB

    just received my wrecking crew overalls. ordered on thursday, arrived in australia on monday via fedex. very happy with them overall and A+ service as usual from TCB. for reference, i'm 186cm/85kg and these are a size 36 based on ryo's advice. i normally wear a 32-34 in most jeans and trousers. as you can see, i could probably wear a 34 too, but i like the extra room around the thigh for these. they're apparently 11oz, although to me they feel significantly lighter; this could be good or bad depending on what you're after. it's winter here at the moment, so i plan to wear them often with some heattech leggings underneath. one thing i'll flag is i found the inseam measurements to be somewhat deceiving: i wasn't expecting to need a cuff at all, but i ended up folding x4 in the below. this might be due to the fact that i have a relatively long torso and short legs for my height. sorry for the terrible lighting. worn with dime/uniqlo/birks.

    TCB

    thanks for the links + suggestions. i knew the tabby was 'authentic', the design just isn't for me. i love dungarees too, but sizing is often tricky as i have a fairly long torso/short legs for my height (186cm). nonetheless, i think i'll take a gamble on the wrecking crews in a week or so. i might ask ryo beforehand as to whether he'd suggest a 34 or 36.

    TCB

    looking at some overalls. don't like the strap design on the 10oz tabby, so it's a toss-up between the wrecking crew and handyman. any thoughts? leaning towards the wrecking crew, but any sizing advice etc would be appreciated!

    props for listing the size you're wearing and your height/weight. it's maddening how many stores still don't do this.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    denimio's site is definitely a little clunky, but my two orders with them were nonetheless very painless overall. sadly, i can't say i've always had the same positive experience with more expensive 'competitors' in the EU, US, or even japan. i'll try to support domestic (australian) stores where i can, but as highlighted, sometimes the local RRP is just way too inflated to make fiscal sense.

    yeah, jelado still seems to be relatively unknown in the west, but is well liked in japanese and HK circles.

    i have a BNWT sugar cane madras shirt in XL for sale. i live in australia, but postage shouldn't be too insane as it's just a shirt. measurements available upon request. perfect for summer.

    sorry, yeah, i meant second from the top.

    TCB

    does anyone have a somewhat awkward second button on their 50s jacket? all my other buttons do up perfectly, except the second button down is really strained and pulls significantly. i've noticed this is super common in various TCB fit pics too, although it's just isolated to that second button...

    Acronym.

    i'm sure a ton of people in this thread and various other places can give you more current advice, but it will always be a gamble. the other thing to keep in mind is the cyclical nature and fairly uniform view of what's considered a desirable aesthetic in communities like these: when this thread started in '07 and i signed up in '08, the term 'techwear' didn't really exist and slim fits + sizing down on absolutely everything was king. it's the complete polar opposite now, although it will inevitably change again. acr back then were perhaps on the fringe somewhat of being influenced by this, but very few labels are completely immune and can still survive as legitimate 'outsiders'. bless and ccp are two salient examples off the top of my head.

    Acronym.

    i haven't worn any acr in almost a decade (!) and only ended up with one single shell, so i have no idea. if it makes you feel better, i currently have stuff ranging from XS (an engineered garments cagoule) to XXL (a bronson work shirt, which ironically fits smaller). sizing never gets easier... edit: unfortunately many labels aren't consistent between years and collections etc. EG is a prime example, as their sizing has often been a complete rollercoaster. again, no clue about acr in 2021.

    Acronym.

    not that i recall. with the exception of some barbour jackets and the occasional MIJ shirt, i've never really had issues with sleeve length. if anything, i tend to have the opposite problem, although i personally prefer sleeves to be slightly too short than too long (which is the complete opposite to 99% of people).
