    Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    Not much going on today , weathers a bit weird .... snowing one minute and sun splitting the trees the next so I took some pics of some 503zxx Ok so starting at the top . They feature a card patch without "every garment guaranteed" so that puts them post 62 and since the middle belt loop moved back to the centre just after 63 , these must have been made sometime in 1963 Middle . So these have a leather patch with off centre belt loop , that means they have to be post 54 but before the change to card patch in around 57 . So these were made anytime between 1954 - 57 Bottom These are the earliest pair I own , the centre belt loop and the leather patch put them somewhere between 1953-54 . I'd love to find out more about the single sided tab 503zxx ( that I'd love to own .... ) , zippers weren't used on mens Levi's until 1954 so that date can be disregarded because the single sided red tab was phased out in 51/52 , so the 503zxx could have been introduced as far back as 1947 ??? Not even sure where to start in terms of research but I'd love to find out Anyway... more pics ........ take all dates with a pinch of salt

    Been putting a good bit of wear into my ww2 s406xxx and thought it was due a wash . Was expecting a nice bit of fading going on ..... but instead it actually looks newer , think my water mains may be connected to the fountain of youth . So instead of embarrassing myself with my "fades" I just took pics of the awesome puckering instead

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Converse jackstar for me Jordan 1 for Jack These jackstars have seen a good 3 years of pretty consistent wear and they have cracked on the midsole a little and letting in a bit at the heel , there still super comfortable and I couldn't throw them out . Has anyone used shoe goo before ? Any good ?

    Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    Thanks lads I'm really excited but definitely scared at the same time . As far as sizing goes in this run there will be 3-4 , 5-6 , 7-8 , this doesnt mean all that much without measurements so as soon as the pattern is completed for 5-6 and 7-8 I'll be updating with more info , Shingo-san will be doing a japan only preorder for me ... wasnt planning to do a preorder myself but once the measurements are available if people want to reserve a pair they are more than welcome to leave a small deposit . Looking into having some t shirts made aswell so hopefully I'll have something to show there soon

    Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    Ok so about 9 months or so ago I lost my job , I've been a welder more or less from I left school and never really liked it .... just kind of fell into it and never left but lockdown and whatnot got me thinking and eventually I decided to try something different . People who know me know that I'm pretty passionate about vintage and collect kids stuff for my little man Jack so I decided to use that to try and start my own kids brand Took me a bit to find a manufacturer but after a bit of trial and error I contacted Shingo-san of denimbase ( he is awesome ) and he was able to use his connections to find a factory in kojima to take on the project So on to the good stuff The Nippers N01 is a reproduction of a mid 50's 503zxx ( the children's version of the 501zxx ) . The denim is a 13.5oz Memphis cotton denim woven in Shinya mills And some fit pics with my main man Jack These are the sample pair so there is a few changes to be made in the production models 1 being to add a little length to the inseam and the other , the leather patch will be printed in red ( this one was just burnt out and always intended to be changed ) Really excited to start this so hopefully I'll be seeing some Nippers on superdenim shortly

There was something else in the package that I'm really excited to show and tell you guys all about , been working on it for close to a year and finally have something physical to show . Still need a bit of time before I'm ready but hopefully I'll be able to show something in a few days

    So ....... I caved and washed the 50's , was only kidding myself thinking I could keep them deadstock So for comparison here is the fits of both the 46 and 50 50 46 The 50 feels a little looser bit the 46 has a slightly higher rise 50 46 Really happy with both pairs , fit and details are great . I have missed putting on the conners ww2 in the morning but these definitely dont disappoint

    I’ve always wondered if those crazy priced pairs were actually selling

    The jukebox pairs with arcs were all 1941’s and used the regular Conners branding ( patch ,tab and buttons ) , lovely jeans but like Neal said I don’t think they were ever for sale

    Warehouse

    The warehouse collab pairs are bound to fetch a few quid aswell . Your right about the arcs

    Yeah this one is a 40 ( others a 38 ) and there's plenty of room for a thick sweat
