  1. As the title suggests , this is place for members to post there clothing pieces for sale/trade I'm not gonna post any rules because there is no way to inforce them but as a bit of a guide . Please keep pictures to a minimum , 3 or 4 pics per item . Make sure to mention and photograph any defects . Be sensible when bumping your items , once a week is plenty but if it's on the same page then what's the point ... right ? . Try and remember to edit your post when an item is sold

    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 )

    Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    £230 seems about in line to what similar brands are charging for there own afterhoods so that's fair in my eyes . SOAS just seem to chance there arm with most of ther pricing

    Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    Really is a lovely afterhood , the dual colour looks great and the ribbing is a nice length but no mater how nice it is how can sonofastag be charging £500 for it ? Admittedly I don't know the Japan retail price but the mark-up on this is scary
  6. 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

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    There pretty weird as far as construction goes mate . The midsole and toe box are like you said but the outsole seems to have been melted ?? Into the midsole
  8. Dont think we have a vintage thread ?? I know there is a vintage denim thread but I thought this could be more general thread to post your vintage collection I'm sure you've all seen the most of my stuff before and it's almost all denim but best to start the thread with a few pics So a list of the stuff 55-58 503zxx 54-56 503zxx 63-66 503zxx 70 - 71 302 Lee toddler jeans from late 60's early 70's Lee ( Leesure wear by lee ) cinch back trousers , think there are early 60's ?? Earliest mention of leesure I can find is from 1962 40's army/navy barracks bag ( pretty sure 40's anyway ) 60's / 70's store brand kids trainers

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Thought the khaki colour would be a little hard to wear and I hate having items of clothing that I feel I can only wear with certain things .... so I dyed them black I'm wearing them with the 50's warehouse 25th , I'm not entirely used to the double cuff but I've hemmed the 46 to wear with no cuff so I think ill keep these as they are for now ( maybe the cuff will grow on me

    Definitely not mate , the McCoys were like tanks .... these are more a rover metro . There not a bad little shoe but lacking a fair bit when compared to the McCoys

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Got a pair of US Rubber Company trainers , not bad but I definitely wouldn't pay full price for them ( got them on sale ) . The rubber is a lot softer than what you would be used to with the likes of converse and the soles remind be of the old black plimsolls we wore in PE . There made in Slovakia so i think they may be made in the same factory that makes the Czech military shoes, hopefully they last a stretch because I do like the military style of them

    Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    Thanks mate , I'm definitely a bit scared jumping into something new but I have complete confidence in the quality of the product and hopefully that and the dedication I have to this will result in some success with the brand

    Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    Looking like August time ill be going live with the Nippers webstore, really excited In the meantime I took a few pics The jeans are starting to wear in a little , hard to get out and about at the moment with lockdown so ther manly being worn in the garden and whatnot messing about with the dogs And a few comparison pics with the 503zxx The goal of this was to get these as close as possible to the original 503zxx and I think we have done a pretty good job if I do say so myself . Along with the jeans there will be t shirts with original artwork by our own @smoothsailor . I managed to score a batch of deadstock early 60's hanes t shirts and I'm having them screen printed in a few weeks . Thats not all ..... also got my hands on deadstock 60/70's made in USA sneakers

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Mentioned before about always wanting a pair of Jordans , wanted a pair from I was a kid ( never had an interest in basketball though ) but no chance my mum was forking out the money Well I still haven't got a pair but I did get a pair of these There the Donny 1 , a reproduction of a jordan bootleg called pro joggs if I remember correctly. Had a few text conversations with the guy who owns the brand and he seems a really nice guy and instead of giving some nike reseller my money I'd rather support a small business
