    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    This one is made in the UK apparently Neal, as stated on the website - it’s the reason I asked for it! If for any reason it’s not, then it’ll go straight back and I’ll get an Aguille one. “As with all products made in our UK Factory, the Idaho 50 comes with a 25 Year Alpine Bond warranty.” My daughter has an Eastpak rucksack for school and she has to carry a lot of heavy books around and it’s been great so far. I bought it based on one I bought for myself about 15+ years ago and has lasted really well. Nowadays I use a US-made Topo one but have noticed that a lot of their stuff is now being made elsewhere.

    Everything of course, it’s a holdALL.

    What’s on your Christmas present list my fellow sufuers? I’m hoping to receive this alpkit holdall, made just up the road from @Double 0 Soul Towers.

    I only wear slub denim, everything else looks like dad jeans.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Hopefully they were very cheap and you were aware of all the ‘improvements’ beforehand!
  7. Why not hand wash them and give them a spin before leaving them to line dry?

    ^ Agreed, it looks like an optical illusion!

    Introducing Tellason Denim

    Here’s the thread from Denimbro that also provides additional info and background on the whole project.

    TCB

    Unfortunately not, I was tempted but couldn’t justify it so will be enjoying it vicariously through the posts of others. Did you order it Slab?

    Leepro Appreciation

    Ande Whall jeans have the same feature and I put the belt underneath so it acts as an additional belt loop. The Ande Whall patches are very thick too so I think are designed that way.

    The Flat Head

    Agreed, it’s a little known secret that Flat Head shirts can reverse the ageing process. We should all be wearing them!

    The measurements of my LVC 66 and 76 (both size 32) are not that dissimilar at all Broark. The 66s are possibly slightly slimmer.

    45rpm

    Please expand on this Lance. I’ve never been that familiar with 45rpm beyond the few posts I’ve read on here so it’ll be interesting to hear your view as you probably know more about them than most of us.

    45rpm

    I happened to walk past the empty shop today. It was only open for 3 years but I suppose it was unfortunate timing to coincide with Covid for most of that time.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    I did post some photos here years ago Dry but they seem to have been lost. Here are some I posted on Denimbro (and have just stolen back so are unfortunately low res) in early 2020 and they still remain unworn but are rising to the top of the pile. They’re over 30 years old now!

    ^ At a simplistic level, it almost seems like an "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" mindset.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I like this premise Bartles and hope I'm not totally missing the point. My limited understanding (and without properly reading the link!) of this as a wider discussion would suggest that living in a progressive, multi-cultural society (within a more global world), it should be perfectly reasonably to acknowledge, accept and adopt a more varied and diverse understanding of what constitutes 'fashion'. In global melting pots, this could manifest itself in a complete hybridization of styles. To some extent this reminds me of some of the photo shoots you'd see in magazines such as The Face and ID during the 1980s, with Buffalo as a specific example. If you look back at that now, it certainly displays various examples of what under a modern lens is now regarded as cultural appropriation. e.g. a model in a native American headdress. If fashion is truly to embrace a more global audience (via heterogeneity rather than clothing everyone in Gap), then it seems that some of the thinking around cultural appropriation and post-colonialism may need to evolve further otherwise we risk treading a minefield of a catwalk.
