    I used to wear Lois jeans as a child/early teen. I thought they were pretty good and wouldn’t call them a Lee rip-off. I never wore the faded variety with the split seams at the bottoms though, which were de rigeur with the football casuals.

    Sharpeye Skidz in navy, UK size 9 (made in Japan, circa 2000 - details here). Max sole length 29.5cm, max sole width 10cm, too narrow for my wide feet. Never worn. No box. £15 plus postage.

    How many shirts are you wearing there? It looks like an optical illusion!

    They look great unders, I particularly like the neppy denim. I believe you just need a piece of wood (4x2) placed strategically behind the rivet when you blat it with a hammer. I’ll ask on behalf of everyone else - where’d you get ‘em? Signal Garments?

    Wait until you ‘upgrade’ yourself to a digital avatar, you won’t need anything at all then, not even nice jeans

    Cheers Lee. Seeing those Jelados worn like that, there’s a certain asymmetric/parallel aesthetic in the pockets as they both appear to slope upwards from left to right at similar angles.

    At least you didn’t put him on the car roof whilst loading it, forget he was up there and then drive off...

    I used to live just next door to Victoria Park @Toegun - in a tower block on Old Ford Road.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Funnily enough @MJF9, I have a pair of Alfred Sargent longwing brogues (in dark brown) and some tan Loake Burford brogue boots. As Madonna sang, “C’mon Brogue...”

    The 11MW model with Levi-esque arcs was a prototype (the later version had the famous ‘W’) do my guess is they probably varied a bit, as did some of the earlier Levi’s arcs. Here’s a back pocket of some 11MW (again from Denim Archives).

    They’ll probably still be available custom-made for anyone who wants one. I have a Flat Head Googies wallet with space for cash, cards, coins (although I keep my Oyster card in that pouch), which is reasonably thick although fits easily in a back pocket. I have a thinner Hillside wallet I use with shorts in the summer. In real life, I’ve never known anyone with one of those long wallets that stick out of a pocket and have an attachment for a chain, so they must be such an insignificant %age of any market share and whoever makes them probably makes other leather items too.

    For a 16 yr old boy and (slimmer-hipped) older dudes. Although they don’t have that specific model, Denim Archives does mention other ‘B’ models for boys such as the 11BZX: ”This is a boys' model of 11MWZ, I think it was made in 1957-58. Although the target age is 14 years old, the waist is 27 inches, and because of the slightly loose silhouette, it can be worn sufficiently by slender Japanese men. Unlike the youth model 11YWZ, the top button is a snap button, which is the specification of a product for children.” I’d guess the 11BW is the prototype Boys model and larger sizes, eg 16 were later given the Y demarcation for Youth.

    If cash is somehow eliminated completely then some people will just use expensive handmade card cases - until cards are eliminated too and everything is stored on a smartphone!

    I think the B means it’s a smaller, boys’ model Duke, similar to the suffix sometimes used by Levi’s.

    I’m pretty sure they do, at least when I ordered from them in 2010, that was their policy, so I used a proxy. You could use zen market to buy from them.
