    Pure Blue Japan

    I received this response from Pure Blue Japan regarding a question about the re-release date of the Ai 003 17.5 oz Double Natural Indigo dyed jeans. I have the jacket in this denim and it is superb; this Ai dyed denim is the perfect example of what Pure Blue Japan does best! Dear Mr. Lance,

    Sugar Cane Denim

    For those interested in the upcoming Sugar Cane Edo Ai release this Spring, here is a link to an article in Paul’s loomstae blog which details an interesting history of the Edo Ai dye from Nihon Menpu. http://loomstate.blogspot.com/2014/06/sukumo-secrets-nihon-menpu-part-2.html
  5. Oh, well it helped with my PSA issue anyway, JDelange, thanks.
  6. Thanks guys, I see I’m not alone as I do the same things! It’s frustrating but necessary. Much appreciated!
  7. JDelage, how do you navigate PSA successfully? Whenever I want something, I email Naoki who is always exceedingly helpful. But when I just want to browse, I guess at the Japanese and just fumble through because the English translation doesn’t seem to work. Thanks

    Nice comparison, vIGGiou riou, I really like the heavier selvage on top.

    Show us your leather

    A breast pocket wallet cut and sewn for me by Charlie at Equus Leather. The leather is Haas Barenia. Haas is a French tannery which made Barenia for Hermès (which eventually bought the tannery). Hermès used Barenia in two of their most famous ladies hand bags, the Kelly and the Birkin. It’s soft leather which ages beautifully because of the tanning process but scratches easily. Because it’s heavily oiled, most of the scratches can be rubbed out using finger pressure. This was one of the last pieces of Barenia leather Charlie had; Hermès keeps it close to home since they bought the tannery. Here is a short description of the tanning process. Barenia is double-tanned in chrome and vegetable dyes and then soaked in a mix of 9 different oils over 5 - 6 weeks.

    Two pairs of Aihiko jeans from the original R by 45RPM. The Zimbabwe cotton Aihiko jeans are Ai dyed, yarn dipped 24 times, a straight cut with a fairly tight top block. The purple hue of the Aihiko dye is evident in both pairs, softer, more evident in the well worn pair. The pair on the right is O/W which I have yet to wear. The pair on the left has been worn, washed and at some point, the legs were tapered. Both pairs have sterling silver buttons and rivets. I cannot take credit for the well worn pair. I bought them on eBay for $10 US; I couldn’t resist even though I couldn’t fit in a size 32 in my wildest dreams! pocket bags are kinda cool, too
  13. I don’t tigerstrom, but thanks for your suggestion. It seems to be a selective delete. I usually just take a photo with my iPad, select it from the library and upload it to my post. As per your suggestion, I’ll see if I did something differently with the deleted photos. edit. just went back to the post (from 2013!) and noticed the host was photobucket and according to the message, no longer available through them. I deleted and will upload new photos to the post. Thanks, tigerstrom
  14. One more time, why the f*ck are my photos gone. Just checked the hardware thread and my photos are gone from there, too! superfuture??
  15. Cool post, Yot, great thread!
