    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 )

    .... or an indigo denim one , all these shite collabs are taking away from all the other great stuff that he does @dudewuttheheck make sure and post lots of pics , if I remember correctly you have the 41 as well ? If so could you do a bit of a comparison

  5. 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

    Pains me to do it but I think I'm gonna have to sell my unworn Conners 46 second half . They were always on the tight side and I convinced myself they would work but I've finally accepted that there just not ment to be . As a rule I now know that whatever you wear in the ww2 denim add 1 size for the 47 So here they are M46 second half in 47 denim with olive pocket bags Measurements waist 15.5 thigh 11.5 front rise 11.5 back rise 14.75 inseam 31 Forgot to take a pic of the pockets but they won't be hard to find in the thread All the wear they have had is an afternoon around the house with a trip to the corner shop I'm looking for £230 and I'll split shipping cost with you ( uk is free ) Let me know i suppose

    I'd maybe be up for a 46 as long as people don't get carried away with all the customisation , ideally the standard 46 would be perfect

    Thanks mate , if I get a pair I think I want to size up to a 31 ( think my true waist is around a 30 )

    Vintage Levi's BIG E, was it or wasn't?

    Well there was a cinch at one point so that's a plus The buttons on the other hand ( front ) just dont look right

    Vintage Levi's BIG E, was it or wasn't?

    Buttons look wrong to me , there looks to be 2 rings in the center of these buttons where it should only be 1 then the center circle . Is there a cinch back attached ? Or evidence that there was one ? Parts definitely point to it being vintage but there are other things ( buttons, artificial looking fade , possible lack of cinch ) that make it look either repro or fake

    I've thought about getting a pair of those a few times , biggest thing keeping me from ordering is the position of the arcs ... there too far down the pocket , not a big thing but it really annoys me

    They do taper quite a bit , was less noticeable on my old w30 pair but on this pair w34 you can clearly see it . It measures just over 8.25 inches so it's still pretty generous

    Vintage Denim?

    Jack slipped last week while we were on a forest trail ... he was wearing his Levi's so I've finally had to bite the bullit and give them a wash " no more tears " ..... If this patch cracks there is gonna be more than tears All went well , cant say I wasnt shitting myself though

    Slow progress on the ww2's, there pretty loose on me so I think that may be why there a bit slower to fade than my 46 first half Think I've sat on some of Jack's slime so I guess there headed for the wash
