    Unknown Japanese Brands

    Too short unfortunately Broark, got to be honest about this.

    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 have 4 Deluweware sweatshirts, they are heavyweight and great quality, I highly recommend them.

    I agree with mpukas and think the 32 will be fine.

    Studio D'artisan

    SDA used to make the 001 (straight, equivalent to the 101) and 003 (tighter, straight fit, equivalent to the 103) in 14oz left hand twill. I still have a pair of raw 001s in my stockpile. I don’t think they’re made anymore but you should search for ‘SD-001’ or ‘SD-003’ if you’re interested.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Try to get in touch with LVC rather than Levi’s. In 2010 I bought some 1915s from a (now defunct) online shop in Sweden and when I unpacked them a rivet dropped off before I even tried them on. I’m in the UK and contacted LVC Europe (based in Amsterdam then) who sent me a number of replacement rivets plus some press-on suspender buttons that I’m saving for my cinch-back Warehouse 415s (basically rebadged 700s). I know in my case, both Sweden (vendor) and the UK (purchaser) are within the domain of LVC Europe and the situation being discussed here is more complex - Australia & USA - but a similar principle of care from the manufacturer should apply.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Tell Levi’s that the button came off as a result of 2 horses attempting to pull the jeans apart (via ropes) and ask if they’ll still honour their ‘Every Garment Guaranteed’ pledge,

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Always the details for me, such as thread colour, rivet weight, belt loop width, pocket bag length, stitch count, patch design. Everything else is irrelevant.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I’d like to re-emphasise Ooms comment that the SC47 and LVC47 are two very different cuts. LVC is slimmer and has a lower rise than the SC, which has a looser silhouette (with a tapered waist). I think the SC47 is closer to the LVC55.

    Studio D'artisan

    SD-101 after many years of on/off wear, soon to be retired as the knees are about to go through.

    Full Count Denim Thread

    Thanks for the clarification about the issue @Godspeedstore, I haven’t checked out the details or prices on the new plain pocket pairs as (1) they don’t interest me and (2) I already have 4 pairs of Full Count so am not currently in the market for any more. Having said that, you mentioned they are a basic range, what makes them this - is it the denim used, the details (or lack there of) or perhaps where/how/by whom they are made? Finally, are they cheaper? Sorry for all the questions, especially as you’ve just joined but we like to know about these matters!

    I think he owns the TMC and the Lone Wolf Geeman.

    Glad to see you running Volvo, where’s the Back to the Future life preserver from?

    Ande Whall Denim

    Ande has a new website selling his artwork on t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, backpacks, etc or even neat if you prefer it that way. https://www.dangtshirts.nz
  21. I think they’ll be fine. I wore mine yesterday, although with jeans.
  22. Maynard Friedman

    How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Here are my updates (in bold). No more INs for me!
  23. LVC 1955 or 1976 would be perfect in terms of cut and weight.

    RIVET & HIDE, London. Info etc...

    Congratulations Danny, I’m sure R&H will be a welcome addition to the retail scene in Manchester and beyond. Promise no retro-style collaborations with Joe Bloggs though!

    Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    I think it’s the lighting, or else he’s paid someone to wear them for him (like U2 used to do). They looked almost new when I saw them in December!
