    What are your favorite denim brands and why?

    really interesting replies! I guess I'm the only one stuck on those original brands hahaha I do really like what TCB has been doing, also quite fond of Warehouse. But I guess I still have nostalgia for some of those original hyped brands like Momotaro and PBJ. Also very interesting to see the sort of divergent paths people have taken. In some of the Facebook groups a lot of people are still very into the heavyweight stuff.
  2. I know this is normally a "small questions thread" but this community isn't what it once was so I would love to talk to the people who still browse here. I reckon the people that still come here are relatively old school denim heads as there's quite a few different denim communities now than there were before (reddit, facebook groups, instagram, etc.,) For me I'm probably sticking to the Japanese brands that I've known about since I started browsing superfuture and learning about raw denim. My 3 favorite brands are probably Momotaro, Pure Blue Japan, and Studio D'Artisan. Although I don't actually own jeans from Momotaro I own their jackets and accessories and I like their details like the pink selvedge as well as the battle stripes - captures a little bit of the Evisu painted stripes in a more understated way. I love Pure Blue Japan for their fabrics - again, ironically I don't own a pair but everytime I try on their pants I am quite impressed. Also quite like their logo and how it's incorporate onto their jeans. Studio D'Artisan I'm also a fan of, I think they nail the repro stuff. Honorable mentions to Sugar Cane and LVC. Sugar Cane for affordable price points, Levi's for being the original.

    Warehouse Competition Poll (Part 2) - DD-1003xx / 1946

    lmao i'm out. like someone else said, would rather just get a pair from warehouse and not through you. you say you're asian and saying stuff like this just fuels hate and violence to other asians worldwide, i don't know why you think that's a fun thing to be a dick about.
  12. what are my options now for upcoming contests? Warehouse one here (seems pretty uncertain at this point) Indigo Invitational Denimio Tanuki

    The Flat Head

    so what does it mean that The Flat Head is going bankrupt? They still seem to be making jeans?
  14. If you had to choose a 'fun'/less conventional pairs of jeans what would you recommend and why?

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Was starting to get into wearing jeans (I was 15, just wore basketball shorts my whole life until then). Some dude on a basketball forum said he bought a pair of Paul Smith Red Ear Selvedge denim, it piqued my curiosity. I think Evisu, APC, Dior, Nudies were all the rage back then (Japanese brands still had their place). Bought a pair of raws from Uniqlo, beat them to shreds, then got a pair of Skull Jeans and that was my main pair for a while. Crotch blew out and I never really cared for denim again until recently because my style is starting to gravitate more towards a simpler wardrobe.
