    Vintage Sweatshirts

    Pretty bored .... so I decided to pass the time by taking some pics As you can probably tell from my fit pics I'm not much of an extravagant dresser , it's mainly chambray shirts and sweats . My style doesn't change much either for different occasions , when the the misses tells me to try and dress up a bit I usually just do up another button on my shirt . I always go for comfort so my collection of sweats serve me well ( there is a few not pictured ... probably in the wash )

    Good logical advise that's using your head for something other than holding a hat

    The Rite Stuff

    Repair it and wear it again ? It is workwear after all and the more wear and repairs it has the better it looks imo

    I've never minded a bit of flare in the hips , makes for a really comfortable fit

    You can really see where Yoshiaki got the flared hips from on the 47 cut , these vintage 47 501xx have quite a distinct flare

    Been wearing the dd46 since I got them The denim is really nice and quite rough . The fit is really comfortable after a bit of wear , I went with my true waist , definitely could have went down one but I really wanted a looser fit ( bad )Pics to show the fit after some wear

    Warehouse

    No mate don't know for a fact but thinking logicly compared to conners , warehouse and the other big manufactures are on a scale of mass production. The jeans are surely not built by one person or I think they would make a point to state it , more than likely they are made on an assembly line of sorts and I would guess to make things easier they would use more modern production methods like ironing seams

    Enjoyed this one I've really been impressed with the dubblwworks, there a really good mid 50's repro so I took the opportunity to compare them to one of Jack's 50's pairs The thread colours are almost exactly the same , both have copper yoke and back seam and the pockets also are also a match with copper used for constructing the pocket and yellow for the arcs The arcs are really similar in shape and they even have the same wonky triangle Don't think I rinsed all the soap out of the warehouse ....oops , I'll have to give it a quick soak

    Gonna be spamming this thread for a bit Done a quick comparison of the dd1003xx and my old Conners 46 Both pairs have the same oversized coin pocket but the warehouse having mixed rivets ( plain and engraved ) is a really nice detail that the conners do not have Pretty similar here , both pairs have a slightly wonky v stitch and both have the correct ww2 dome style back pocket rivets The warehouse really shines as far as hardware goes , these buttons feel super solid and the coating is a cool detail rarely seen in most repros I prefer the back pocket shape of the conners and the overall sewing ( but the warehouse thread colour is nicer imo ), it's conners biggest and best feature feature . Maybe it's stupid to think like this but knowing that the seams on the conners are hand folded makes them a cut above as far as historical accuracy goes They are both awesome and choosing one over the other would be near to impossible so I'm just happy to have both
