  1. The Onion has some pretty ridiculous stories, but you would be surprised at how many people actually BELIEVE their articles.
  2. Shoes that look better with age...

    I asked someone at Bakers about Spenco insoles. They said, depending on the boot, it would cause the heel to blow out. :/
  3. Sugar Cane Denim

    The only site that came up was this for the Edo Ai as you would have to shoot them a email to see if they're still available. http://www5f.biglobe.ne.jp/~shop_nakata/sc40501h.html
  4. Sugar Cane Denim

    Some interesting info about the Edo Ai but you'll have to run a google translate to read it. https://www.chiphell.com/thread-1004754-1-1.html
  5. If anybody here is going to be in Greensboro, NC in the next month or so, the Wrangler Pop-up shop is going to be held downtown again. I posted some pics of it in the WAYDT thread. I'm sure there will be Cone denim offerings and rare goods by Wrangler in the shop like last time. I wouldn't be surprised if Evan of Hudsons Hill's secret project with the brand is displayed as well. Stop by and chat and get your denim chain stitched hemmed.
  6. Sugar Cane Denim

    I know the feels. I have a personal gripe with Japanese denim makers not making much styles in black denim. You may have to look at another brand for that style you're asking for.

    Do you know what the measurements are in the width and shoulders on your shirt?

    Been noticing a trend of Japanese brands making shirts with the collars similar to the shirt the kid third from the left is wearing. Same thing with the kid at the end of the right side. Seems very popular and I have bought shirts with that style as well. I'm a fan of that open collar style as it doesn't choke me and it works good for hotter weather for breath ability IMO, whether you wear a undershirt or tank top underneath.

    So I bumped into someone at a local pizza place in Winston Salem who happens to not only know Ryan personally (even showed his direct number), but explained why everyone's denim is taking so long to get. Keep in mind, I asked for his permission to post this as he's aware of this forum but hasn't posted and I tried to convince to register and post. He was a buyer for VF brands such as Lee, etc. We talked almost an hour about Japanese and American denim as he caught my Sugar Cane denim with his eye. He did explain how he met Ryan. As he explained, Ryan is a one man team that takes his time to make the denim. He is the only one making the denim. His wife does the business side of things He's managing his business, family, and other things, He doesn't like releasing denim if it isn't up to his satisfaction. He's in the same realm with Roy regarding quality vs quantity. Everyone will get their denim. He is the only one making the denim though. Again, this is all what we talked about as I'm hoping he registers here and posts as he knows his stuff when it comes to denim. What a small world! Glad I stopped by Winston for some food.
  10. Stuff you would like to see made

    Someone here posted a waywt Osh Gosh overalls fit recently, so I would like for either Warehouse or TCB to make a repro.

    @bartlebyyphonicsI'm not too sure as I don't keep up with the brand much, but I think Freewheelers made repros of the two shirts.
  12. Trophy Clothing

    Not too many pics right now, but I just washed and machine dried again my 1605bk and they have turned even more grey now. They still that gritty texture and turned out nicely. Just a glimpse of what they're doing. Last wash of the year until January unless they're stinking like earlier.
  13. Waywt 2018 (denim version)

    That's correct. Made in Waukesha, WI in a now defunct shirt company.
