    Out on paw patrol at the local park with the hound. Not sure if this architectural style has a name!

    We started singing one of Duke’s favourite songs after a few sherbets!

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    In my experience of LVC in general, the important thing is not necessarily the tagged length but what they actually measure as this can vary. There are short 36L pairs and long 34L pairs that can be quite similar in length. The opposite scenario is equally plausible too, where there is a significant difference in measurement. Overall, if you know the measured length, I think you can expect about 3” shrinkage with washing at 40-60°C and not using a tumble dryer.

    No, I’m in there alright. We asked some dowdy old Scottish fella in a hat and a pair of fake-looking Levi’s to do the honours!

    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.

    What are your jeans doing today?

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

    Unknown Japanese Brands

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

    Unknown Japanese Brands

    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.
