    Definitely street theatre then, they like to keep it real, taking it to the people wearing £300 jeans

    or preferably not white!
  4. Just the cut? Brand is irrelevant?
  5. I like my jeans to be stitched with poly cotton thread, I’ve got too many other things to worry about than constant repairs for snapped/worn cotton thread. I know it’s not a popular view among the purists.
  6. I’m not sure how authentic it is but I’d want them to last longer otherwise it’s barely worth having them. I feel the same about stitched arcs that disintegrate too quickly.

    Vintage Denim?

    Thanks for these posts Charlie. Re the above, do you not think Levi’s would have dropped the cinch back anyway due to changing tastes? As you know, the press on suspender buttons were optional and many wearers were apparently cutting the cinch off anyway to wear a belt more comfortably.

    I found this extract very interesting: “The swing to Wrangler from Trump supporters became most acute when Levi’s switched production of their premium LVC denim range from the US to Bulgaria and Turkey shortly after the closure of the White Oak plant.”

    Great story Neal and I like the video too, although I know snuff movies aren’t everyone’s cup of tea!

    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.

    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?
