    @Dr_Heech The 46 are the new 14.5oz denim ( your correct , same as the duck digger) The 50's are the 13.5oz banner denim As far as the decking goes , it was painted last year .... £120 worth of decking paint and in lasted 6 months until it started peeling so Mr Ronseal can go fuck himself @Maynard Friedman There both really nice mate but I like the 46 more I think , mainly because the 46 501xx along with the s501xx are my favourite Levi's @Duke Mantee Dont get me thinking about it too much .... they'll end up in the in the sale thread before the end of the day

    Very nice mate . cool to see the different pocket shape , the stitching on my one is very curved at the bottom compared to yours
  5. Thanks mate , I'll go with fedex then Edit , checked and its basically the same price as ems
  6. Anyone from the uk ever use ups when ordering from japan ? Is it any faster than the usual ems option ?

    Couldn't resist the 25th 1946 ...so I bought those too . I sold the 46 duck diggers i had mainly because of the pocket shape and the position of the arcs ( too low ) and i think the 25th are pretty much perfect both in pocket shape ( apart from the same intentional mistake at the bottom of both pockets ) and arc shape/position. Really looking forward to them

    Love how the v stitch is pretty much completely hidden

    Not claiming any expert status I'd put it down to the usual boring answer of wartime production. While I couldn't find an example to the extreme of my conners there are plenty of examples of the panels being sewn with the twill running in different directions did Yoshiaki take some liberties in this detail ?? Havent got a clue . Tried looking through his old Instagram pics put got back as far as 2018 and the ipad wouldnt load any more up . I don't think its outside the realm of possibility that the pair he based these off had this same detail but who knows

    I get what your saying mate , but i think im done as far as debating quality/honesty/whatever . Seems it's the only time this thread gets any activity Were all gonna have different opinions on brands and stuff but this particular discussion is feeling a bit old

    I dont know mate I started to pick flaws I'm the last warehouse I got after a few weeks , should have been obvious to me beforehand but I'm impulsive and jump into things without thinking them out fully . I'm hoping this time is different because the 1950 25th I've bought look pretty damn good from the pics

    Definitely respect your opinion here mate . But I think they have adapted to the changes in demand ( especially international) as best they could with the exception of the price rise

    What's different now ? I've bought stuff from him for the past 5 years and I've never have I re ieved a product and thought it was any less than the original pair I started with . As far as the wait times go there isn't all that much you can do about that but Yoshiaki did stop taking orders to clear the backlog and I did think this was admirable , he didn't just automatically see dollar signs But the price increase ..... nothing ive seen can justify that

    The price hike is a real kick in the teeth for me so feel the same as everyone else in that respect , its pushed there jeans out of my reach .... if I'm honest the original pricing was too much for me given my income/mortgage bills and whatnot .

    I'll add to what I said in my last post and say that i think many have bought conners just based off the hype around the brand or out of curiosity without knowing or caring about what there buying into , I think that has lead to a bit of the disappointment And to add something other than my thoughts .... ( adding more fuel to the quality debate ....... ) Jack decided to use my pocket as a handle to pull me down a path to a little river and popped a rivet off my pocket . Sent Yoshiaki a message and he has posted a replacement so hopefully I can repair it but if not I'm not all that fussed , they have about 3 years wear on them so it's not as bad as it happening on a new pair

    @JohnM I do understand a bit of where your coming from but it seems you have either missed the point in what csf set out to achieve , it was never about making a quality ( looking ) product it was to capture the spirit of jeans they were attempting to copy .... or you just dont believe it ? And if that's the case then I respect your opinion and dont see any reason to convince you otherwise . I've made my feeling about conners known many times so there is no reason to go over it again but I will admit that the recent price has put me off buying any more .

    Decided to go with the 1950 25th anniversary pair , not one of my 2 choices from the last post but thought about it and I've been wearing nothing but s501xx and 1946 repros for the past 5 years and a change would be nice , be different to look down and see copper stitching
  23. EDIT Nevermind ... I'm repeating myself ( I think the misses is right and I am losing my marbles)

    Emailed them last night , just waiting for a reply . They seem to be fully stocked and that makes me think they maybe just havent updated there stock to show there sold out ??? Fingers crossed anyway I'm stuck between these and the deadstock blue , only thing that puts me off the DSB is the tab ..... even thought about dying it if I was to buy one
