  1. 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

  3. Basicly a place where you can talk about that grail vintage piece you could never afford/find and would like to see a repro of , or whatever you can think of really . I'd prefer if this thread didn't turn in " wanna see bpj do a collab with flathead " but if that's what you want to see then who am I to judge Id love to see a repro of the blue toe Converse , these were introduced in the mid 60's iirc and didn't stuck around for long . Would be perfect for Warehouse or maybe McCoys to do Pic taken from http://www.chucksconnection.com/markrecobcollection/

    Stuff you would like to see made

    Thanks for the link mate but its really a reproduction of that exact 60's model that would put a massive smile on my face . I actually bought a pair of 70's reissues and tried to colour the toe with a marker ...... it didn't turn out too well

    Think that is based on the later war model , it's the rounder 30's shape pockets and hair on hide patch that I love about the early war model I spoke with yoshiaki ( conners sewing Factory ) a while back and mentioned lee and there war models .... he has been studying the stitching and hopefully will make them in the future

    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 )

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    I'm not sure anyone is apologising for Levi's , pretty sure the most of us know that LVC have been phoning in the the reproduction aspect of the line and just trying to capitalise on the " vintage look " . If they were a proper reproduction brand They wouldn't use that ugly poly thread and would just go with cotton thread

    Well they were about , not all as extreme as the lvc were talking about but they certainly weren't all symmetrical .

    So you think all pairs post ww2 501's had symmetrical arcs ? Because they were all over the place

    Who has a handful of stones ??? Only reason I ask is because your posts were confusing . You started out talking about a late 60's Levi's arc and then compared them to a 30's 501xx all while using the term "freehand" to describe what I assume you thought LVC were trying achieve with the 66 arcs ? I actually agree with you that the arcs are not the best shape and look more like mid - late 70's arcs

    Vintage Denim?

    Found these pics digging around on the berberjin blog archive ( I do this a lot ) First up is a 506xx from around 1933 , what makes it particularly interesting is the NRA tag ... rare enough to see (a pic ) one attached to some 501xx but I cant say I've ever seen one attatched to a type 1 jacket Next is a dual coloured stitched s501xx
