  1. Conners Sewing Factory

    CSF also makes 30s era and post WW2 (circa ‘47) cuts in addition to a range of denim jackets. I think it focuses on WW2 models as there are so many variations to exploit in terms of materials available during rationing, plus the rushed aesthetic of that time period suits the CSF USP (aka period correct attention to detail, warts and all) perfectly.
  2. Workshirts

    I’d just take it on the chin and accept it.
  3. Sugar Cane Denim

    Hot wash them (60C) and you’ll probably get more shrinkage out of them, unless they were already one-wash (pre cold-wash). I wouldn’t use the dryer again though.

  5. What about Jeans Jackets ....

    A paltry £1024 for the complete WW2 tux!
  6. Good topic, I reckon this should be in the general info, blunders, chit-chat, etc thread!
  7. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Some good points Foxy. One of the key reasons I don’t use a tumble dryer is that I rarely use one anyway. We just spin and air dry everything - on the line in the garden in summer and inside on a clothes horse in the colder months. Ours is a combined washer-dryer and the dryer component only sees active service for towels (softens them) and when something damp is needed urgently - usually an item of school uniform for the kids. Consequently I haven’t tumble-dried jeans since my student days of sitting in a laundrette (no, not in my underpants á la Nick Kamen, but usually in the last things left clean - tracksuit bottoms and old t-shirt relegated to laundrette duty only!).
  8. The Flat Head

    Sound like 20oz zipper versions of the 3002 and 3009 cuts respectively so if you can find the descriptions/measurements of those, that should give you an idea of the heavier versions.

    @Pedro (at the risk of you telling me I’m being unhelpful, again), if you have a browse through the TCB 20s contest thread, you’ll see there are plenty of contestants who use a tumble dryer, eg aho, nycsurfer. I never use one (40C and slow spin followed by hang dry for me) as I don’t like the accelerated fading it seems to bring on, although some like the roping, etc it helps develop. Regarding your Levi’s Japan, I have some natural indigo 501s from 1991 and I’m not sure LVC is mentioned anywhere on the labels either. I think it may have been known as Levi’s Japan rather than LVC Japan although a someone more expert than I would need to confirm that.
  10. Black jeans lovers!!!

    @ecsong187I think that would pretty much be the Greaser then.
  11. Black jeans lovers!!!

    @spitfiredealer I’ve ordered a few times from Left Field in the past and as far as I remember, nothing was marked down though I think I managed to get lucky once or twice!
  12. I think in these instances, you buy suspenders or braces that have buttons pre-attached.
  13. Cowboy jacket for the style and denim.

    Sometimes the inseam measures shorter than the tag length in the raw state, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a pair come up at least 1” less than stated. That wouldn’t explain the full 6” differential with shrinkage but I suppose it’s possible they could be more undersized in the inseam than the usual tolerance.
  15. Warehouse

    I typed all that to be both supportive and co-operative Pedro, rather than a simple “Yes” or “No”, which would be neither. I’m not sure why you feel the urge to wade in (x3) but that’s your prerogative.
