  1. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    These guys have a nice selection of Trophy tees, and being based in Aus, might be easier to order than JP stockists. https://www.godspeedstore.com/collections/trophy-clothing?page=1
  2. I find that Anonymous Ism and Chup tend to fit all my sock needs.
  3. Shoes that look better with age...

    They are a higher price point but the Visvim 73 folks have a zip. Makes taking them on and off relatively painless.
  4. Seriously though, where did everyone go?

    So Levis wasn't legit in 1933?

    Only what @Paul T has posted in the previous page. They still have enough for next season. However are only offering the 47 & 54 in 501s. So this season is your last chance to grab whatever other style you want such as the 66,76 ect
  6. Shoes that look better with age...

    This is true. I found the fit on SLP or Doek means that you generally have half a centimetre of extra length to accommodate the width issue. Some people are okay with this, some are not. I had this exact issue with the Warehouse sneakers.

    Haha, its years of buying Japanese footwear in CMs or I would be lost as well. I found Doek and SLP to fit fairly similar to each other. Or at least not too different to warrant a different size. I take 27cm or US9 in both. The only real exception has been the Doek Slip Ons, due to the really low toe profile which made people go up one size.

    In my experience 28cm is normally a US10 and 29.cm is normally a US11. So a US9 would usually be 27.5cm and a US10.5 28.5cm. So it sounds like the NC joints run half a size bigger than average. I'm a 26.5cm foot and normally take US 8.5. I'm pretty sure the NC joints are made at the Moonstar factory. In Shoes Like Pottery, I need a 27cm.

    @Dry They look like they are hardly comfortable at all. I would sell and upsize for a better fit.

    This season and next season is still cone mills. Then its any bodies guess? My money is on either Japan or China.

    Yeah, it is strange. Maybe the guys in the factory made a mistake. As far as I know, they don't do different inseams for the export market.
  12. Orslow

    I just measured our orSlow drop. The size 3 107 inseam clocks in at exactly 30.75"

    There are a bunch check the store directory here http://orslow.jp/store/

    If you check back in the thread you will find that it's just a generic label that Levis attached to cover a range of products where some of the materials used in the construction are imported. In this case, they are not talking about the cone denim.
  15. Orslow

    They are meant to be 30.75" according to orSlow's size chart. Size 4 & 5 are meant to be a 33" inseam. Perhaps orSlow has fielded requests to make the inseams longer on the sizes 3s. I will measure our new delivery when it arrives later this week and report back.
