    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 )

    I’m not having a dig at you because everyone is entitled to their opinion but your post is a little confusing , you seem to question the quality in the first paragraph then in the next say there great jeans and want a pair ? The “quality” argument isn’t even all that important to me when talking about repros , there is plenty of “better made” jeans with out there with higher stitch counts and lazer straight lines but that’s not how Levi’s we’re made As far as appreciating repros goes ..... I love vintage , if I could afford it I wouldn’t even entertain the idea of buying repros but until that long lost relative leaves there millions to me in there will I’ll have to make do with the next best thing , in my opinion that is Conners

    Bit of a fit update on my size 34 ww2 , been wearing them quite a bit and the Denim has really started to take shape im still surprised they fit considering the 30’s I had were wearable , slimmer than they should have been but still wearable
  7. 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

    @Maynard Friedman they definitely feel tapered when worn but the leg opening is still about 9 inches

    Not a fan of the black and white denim if I'm honest or some of the 3face stuff for that matter , I love the standard offerings for the attention to detail and overall accuracy to original 501xx so selfishly I wish he would just stick to that ( but that's just my opinion and no judgment on anyone else who is into it ) When you posting the pics of your recent visit Jake ???? Leaving us all hanging over here
