    Denim jackets with zip fastenings. Just like jeans with a zip fly, they do not appeal to me at all.

    Lightweight Japanese Denims?

    I believe all of the LVC models are <13oz pre-wash and are now made from Japanese denim (Kaihara mills I think).

    The Flat Head

    I think this mystery pair needs @kiya to chime in and hopefully clarify matters.

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    ^ That’s great advice from Neal. @beautiful_FrEaK - there’s a chap who calls himself the vulcan doctor who may be able to help further.

    TCB

    Time to start a new thread for TCB rather than leave it in the "Unknown Japanese Brands" one as it's very well known now. Post all your TCB non-competition stuff here.

    I thought you’d be burning all your Japanese clothing after today’s game!

    Was it a one-dog or two-dog tent? It may have had help and there could be another canine lurking around. Alternatively, it could be a one-man-and-his-dog tent and the pooch got a bit peckish. Keep us updated on the situation…

    Are you swapping salty stories and singing sea shanties?

    Unknown Japanese Brands

    Interesting. Like you say, they’ve been around for years and if you look through any old issues of Lightning, they were at the bottom end of the price range, at about half the cost of most repro brands (¥10 k or so). Their designs were always a little wacky too and wouldn’t appeal to the repro enthusiasts. These look much better BUT at a significantly higher price. They may be jumping on the bandwagon a little belatedly here.

    If you zoom in you can see the creases but not the hem. They look like a ‘normal’ pair of jeans I’d find in one of my local charity shops

    Mavis will be tutting at the checkout. “Why does he have post-60s rounded rivets on a pair of late 30s cinchbacks? Some people have no idea about authenticity!”

    I’m not a tattoo fan at all but that’s an excellent one Ryan and so apt too. Good job.

    What’s the denim jacket count at now?! ;-)

    It’s important to highlight our differences, fears and insecurities from as early an age as possible and instil awareness of identity politics into the young’uns. At least the kids will identify with Stewie Griffin on the cover!

    That Type 2 @suchislife bought is now down to £212 before further loyalty discounts. He should return the old one and order a new one, it might even be made in Japan this time!

    Great fit Duke. Can we see the pre-wash/raw photos too?

    Just my birthday suit today, although it’s not even my birthday!

    I bought a Type 1 from the LVC sale a few weeks back - 30% discount plus an extra 10% and £5 off for loyalty (from signing up for the emails!). In total, it was reduced from £260 to about £159. I knew it was made in Japan too (I’m pretty sure it mentioned that in the description at the time) and the construction is very clean. I’d never have bought the Type 2 at the same discount rate as it has an RRP of £340 - no idea why it should be £80 more than the Type 1 - and it would have come to about £209 after discounts. Given that it’s made in Turkey (I’m not saying that’s bad, it’s just not my preference), I’d send it straight back.

    Perhaps you should take up badminton instead?

    I thought it was the new Mister Freedom strongman cuff for winter 2022.
