    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Do all the converse 70 reissues use that thick ankle patch now ?
  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
  7. The two best examples I could find And one from the 501xx book Looks like the paint is below the stitching so the pockets were most likely stamped before being attatched to the leg panels , if this is the case then it would give a reasonable explanation to all the upside down arcs seen on the s501xx
  8. Maybe I'll let jack have a go with his finger paints ?
  9. Stencil smudges too much , actually cut one out of 0.8mm stainless steel on the lazer at work ( this was a few months back ) but it was useless ... the card one I made after done a better job but it still smudged . Ended up doing one free hand and while it was better than the others it just didn't look how I wanted it to Edit . It was actually 1.2 stainless I made it out of
  10. Think I'll give it a miss then , I bought some acrylic paint a while back and tested it out on an old scrap , turned out ok but wasnt ready to try it on the conners
  11. To anyone who has painted arcs on a pair of jeans..... what paint did you use ? Acrylic ? Did it hold up well ?

    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 )

    What conners dude ?
  22. Cliquey ? How ? It's a public forum where everyone is invited to communicate freely and if people get along with each other and form friendships then it's a good thing ( one of the best things about the internet ) . No one should be excluded from joining in the different conversations on the forum and I honestly have not found anyone doing this
  23. Otherwise whats the point in this place ? Sizing questions ? And " nice outfit mate " ? Cool to see good fits and all but without the debate and discussion this place wouldn't interest me
  24. What's your view on a brand like two moon ? If it was more accessible outside japan would it be more popular ? They basically do a bit of everything
