    What are your jeans doing today?

    Here’s our cast iron brazier from Graham & Green - looks like yours Neal. We previously had a cheap one with legs from B&Q or similar that fell apart after about a year. Don’t be alarmed by the jaunty angle of the parasol and stand, it’s bungee-tied to a large vertical wooden post!

    Took the pooch for a walk around Hampstead Heath today. Here’s the London skyline from Parliament Hill. Bonus photo of pooch resting at home after walk.

    Very swish. We have a brazier on our deck and I just put a couple of spare roof slates under the base!

    In for a penny, in for a pound. Why not order the 37s too, for ¥25k? Only 16 pairs (of 70 produced) left!

    All the Gardener info is on their own website Spiral Jeans Shop link too. Those recently produced 1954s were 16oz but are sold out. Also found this summary re Gardener history (translated version): Ichiro Ueki founded Allen & Hanson in the 1980s to sell American-style clothing. Since 1995, it has been producing high-quality jeans. Since Ueki means gardening in Japanese, EVIS founder Hidehiko Yamane (Ueki San friend) named the brand Gardener, and also undertook the production of Gardener jeans. The jeans are knitted with old-fashioned looms to give the pants a deep indigo blue. In 1997, Gardener, EVISU, DryBones, and Storm Blue jointly launched the TAKE 5 collaboration series to push Ichiro Ueki to the peak of his career.

  16. 40°C wash should be fine. You can always do a 60°C wash the next time if there’s not enough shrinkage.

    A washed pair from Lightning 2006 Denim Style book. There is some talk about a hiatus (8 years - 1997-2005?) between the original (sample?) model and the resumption of production. Further mentions of Yamane but it may simply be because he was so revered in the denim world.

    This pair is from the 2004 Lightning Denim Style book. They are sanforized 1954s, hence the lower price. They also have black fly buttons. There are a number of references to Evisu/Yamane in the text. This is similar to the pair that @julian-wolf posted (on sale for ¥63k) a couple of pages back.

    The page I posted above mentions something about a revival - that may be the 2005 part. My translate app kept changing the text though and I didn’t have the time or patience to continue with it.

    Taken from a World Mook book I have from 2005. Gardener 1954 (Uekis) designed by Ichiro Ueki in 2005 I think. Company could be called ‘System of Emporium’ (literal translation). Perhaps someone with a knowledge of Japanese or a better grasp of a translation app could do a more thorough job than me!

    Am I missing something here? Surely it’s the Neputa and the Wanderers that have a similar patch, not the Gardeners.
