    Couldn't help myself, picked up the RMC A1 in Deerskin. Detail photo taken yesterday when I picked up the jacket by the store owner.

    So good. Wish my own pair fit me, but had to sell them on, too wide for my goddamned narrowed feet...!

    Superdenim also run realmccoyslondon.com , which stocks a hell of a lot of RMC.

    Bloody hell. How’d you size in lot 004 or joe McCoy 991s if you have them (I ask but, it’s you, of course you have them)?

    Welp, managed to snag some 64 BB Okinawas, tux is complete! Little man decided to make a prison break whilst the photo was being taken, so had to be scooped up before he reached the main road. He is not happy about the defeat.

    Where'd you locate the soles @Brenjay? Or were they provided by the cobbler? I'm soon to need my Real McCoys boondockers to be resoled, anyone have recommendations on where to find that great cork/rubber sole they use? God knows local Melbourne cobblers won't have it.

    Hey mate, yep I would say 18"/36" waist. Not sure about how much stretch is left. I've worn them about 10 times, but not sure about the stretch quality of the denim.

    Yep I’ve used the discount on Clinch myself and also bought from Clinch direct; works out a bit cheaper overall from P&L.

    This is true but two caveats: Pancho and Lefty offer a 20% discount if you sign up to their newsletter, and shipping from them will be less expensive than from Japan if you’re in Europe.

    Contacting pancho and lefty is your best bet I think https://panchoandlefty.se/product-category/brand/clinch/

    Also - received the Wesco Axebreakers via Standard & Strange. Great service from @mrsmiff and co.

    Soaking the laces in oil (whichever leather oil you have to hand) helps longevity, in my experience.

    Haha not quite @MJF9! The Okinawa denim doesn’t match very well, I’ll be using them in separate outfits!

    A few have asked for comparisons between this shade of denim and others. Quick comparison of colour between new lot 64 organic cotton and another pair of denim (WH Dungaree R1901, up for sale if anyone's interested):

    Just finished the soak dry cycle of my new lot 64 organic cotton. Great jeans, unique colour. In direct sunlight:
