    The ugliest Jeans in the world thread.

    Found on yahoo auctions

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Does anyone have sizing experience with Novesta? Specifically looking at the Star lows or highs. Somewhere I read they run big, and I’d rather not deal with the expense of an international size exchange.
  3. I gave my Samurais another wash. That crotch is nearing repair time... Pre: Drying: After a day's wear: Thanks for tuning in.

    Samurai Jeans

    @beautiful_FrEaK !!!! Wow It’s been so long, I forgot about your fit guide. Thanks for the reminder.

    Samurai Jeans

    Does anyone have fit pics of the S3000vx? i'm on the fence. I realize it's a ww2 cut (right?) and i'm sorta looking for a wide fit. Search function only yields a few results, none of which are fit pics.
  6. What is it like ordering internationally from Hinoya? I’m in the states, anyone have tips? Or just check-out as usual.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    I apologize if this has been covered, or may be more suited to the small questions thread... I'm fairly new to the nicer realm of shoes/boots, but have recently started wearing Alden Indys (Chromexcel). How resilient are they in wet weather? I'm not planning to tromp around in puddles of mud, but I'd like not to unduly stain them or dry them out. I realize there is a camp, as with jeans, that would say, "They're boots; just wear them," but I'd surely like not to mar them prematurely, as I'm still reveling in this new-boots good feeling. There comes a time when white sneakers get their first wine stain, and I suppose it's to be accepted, but I'd appreciate your input. Edit: Looking at theshoemart's guide for caring for chromexcel, I'm a little apprehensive about spraying a protectant on leather, but if that's what folks do, then so be it. Edit 2: also i should note that i'm a little embarrassed to be asking; i kind of thrashed my Red Wings, but they look the part as well.
  8. @beautiful_FrEaK Thank you! They were hemmed through Self Edge PDX not terribly long after I purchased them. I really wish I had gone shorter, but I think I thought they would shrink a little bit more. Alas, a double-cuff.
  9. Moving on... Here's my Samurai S0511XX purchased Sept of 2019, worn a lot, then a little, then a lot. Washed a few times. They were tighter before, thus the unfortunate lap fades, but are just beginning to fit well again. My very first pair of Japanese made jeans were made from the same Texas cotton (Lot 10 Samurai S0500XX), so naturally I had to revisit this fabric.
  10. Thanks for the replies folks. Yeah the roomy thighs help for sure. Three of my bikes have Brooks Cambium saddles, and I suppose it’s just rough enough to cause some premature thinning. I spent a good few hours riding in a new pair of APCs that I purchased for crazy cheap, and there’s already a noticeable wear pattern and I can immediately tell where the trouble spots will form. C’est la vie i guess edit: it’s been a small battle in my head for years actually lol
  11. Maybe this is silly, or the wrong thread, but here it goes. I bike a lot, a whole hell of a lot, and I never want to wear my jeans while doing so because I don’t want an awkward saddle fade or to blow the crotch out early. do any of you frequently ride a bike and have either of these issues? Lol thanks :-|
  12. I love the fades on your unbranded! What size are they?

    Denim Repair

    Felt pretty lethargic today after receiving my second vaccine dose yesterday, so I decided to drink tea and mend this back pocket. With the help of a more experienced needleworker who did the actual patch.

    Evisu is still loved!

    @chantheman those are great - do you mind posting that crotch repair? Inside/outside?
