    Conners Sewing Factory

    i have made a few posts about CSF in the unknown brands thread but i thought id make a dedicated thread to try and make more people aware of the brand ( if they were not already ) . The founder Yoshiaki Konaka has a real passion for vintage and it really comes through in his work , he has spent quite a while sourcing and repairing old Singer and Union Special machines that were used in the production of LEVIS during the 40's so that he can accurately recreate the stitching and give the feel of a vintage garment here is a great interview with Yoshiaki where he talks about the brand so far he has made a 1946 , 47 and ww2 reproduction , the next release will be the 1941 model ( basically a 37 repro )
  2. ive never been much of a boot man , always go with a comfortable pair of trainers so i thought it would be cool to have a thread to show what trainers / sneakers were wearing . i realise that this could turn into a thread full of the same vans and converse over and over but hopefully we see a bit more of variety first up is my most recent purchase . Converse Star Bars , they are a japan exclusive release and i payed a bit more than i should for a pair of converse but ive always wanted a pair definitely going to get a few more pairs some Converse one stars next up is some vintage Converse from the 1960's , had originally thought they were from the 70's but after a bit of research i was proved wrong and my wardrobe staple , dont think ive been without a pair of these since i was 13

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    The double sided tab and the cheap looking buckle would really put me off those ( plenty of better options out there for that price ), they got the back seam right though ... so that’s a plus

    Yeah , made by Yoshiaki they look terrible though ( IMO ) , the buttons and those arcs are ugly

    Yes mate , there are lots of examples of similar “mistakes” on vintage s501xx

    Vintage Denim?

    I’ve seen jeans marked 503bxx as big as a 30 waist

    Vintage Denim?

    My guess would be junior sized , along the same lines as the 503bxx / 503zxx

    WAYWT 2019 (denim edition)

    You wear the 2001 cut really well but I think they would look 10 times better with a larger single cuff

    Vintage Denim?

    Very nice mate , hoping to pick up an early 50’s lee 91j ( or payday if the prices are a bit steep ) when I go to Tokyo ... can’t wait to go back to berberjin

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    That’s some cool news if I was to change one thing about lvc that would make me a super happy about buying them it would have to be the thread , there stitching is horrible .... looks and feels cheap and gives them a really impersonal feeling ( like they were sewn together by a robot ) . Change to all cotton stitching and I don’t see why 90% of repro enthusiasts wouldn’t buy a few pairs
  20. Yep , jeans wouldn’t last me a week in work

    Vintage Denim?

    Seen an Instagram post about a year or so ago that supposedly showed a s506xx that was made using left hand twill denim , at the time I wasn’t convinced and brushed it off as nonsense but something brought it into my head earlier today and I thought there wouldn’t be any harm in a Dm asking for a few more pics . I was surprised when the person replied and was very pleased by the pics that followed So there you have it ....... left hand twill Levi’s . I’d heard rumours before but never any proof until now

    Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    @Foxy2 thanks again mate for all the help @mlwdp thanks mate , seen this when I was originally looking for info and it reinforced the Pakistan production info I seen on another forum seems I done ok then , there was one I seen sell online for $200 and it wasn’t in as good condition as this one ... not bad for £45 but like I said it was just bought for my trip and then maybe I’ll list it on eBay ?? was never a big Ozzy or metal fan I just thought it looked cool , liked a few Sabath tunes but that’s about it
