    It’s time to let these go. I’ve held onto them for a while, but they’re not getting worn enough. I’ll be listing them all (somewhere) soon, but feel free to hit me up if you’re interested. -SOLD- They came to me separately, but I’m only sending them out as a family. Here’s my final wear pic on all of them. rso4 33 unhemmed, worn, repaired, worn more, solid crotch, plenty of holes elsewhere all ducks 32 unhemmed great shape no idea 32 unhemmed - purchased on eBay with the small cut (that doesn’t go through), light wear

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    I’ve loved them since the first time I handled their shirts at Blue in Green, probably around the time of the first Inspiration Brooklyn show. Everything I’ve handled from them is soft and comfortable. None of it has the heavy construction of something like a McCoys tee or sweat (which is also great, but has that sporty feel about it). The Tompkins sweat is very thick - not dense and heavy, but very puffy. The deep texture makes it puffy, soft, and warm. The twill face military crew is just another piece from L&W that makes me love the different fabrics they develop for their garments. I’m also a big fan of their colors. They have some blue, black, and white, but I prefer the subtle and handsome reds, oranges, and yellows.

  5. This might be the most reasonable thing I’ve ever read on the internet. That’s a hell of a soft touch you’ve got. Well done.

    I had these in 87. Thanks to eBay, I have them again. Why, yes. They are.

    The movie True Romance has always been a favorite of mine. I’ve had the glasses since high school, the $13 Old Navy shirt just arrived, and the RS04s are as close as I get to Clarence’s jeans.

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    I appreciate that. I just don’t want to rely on one person’s experience to determine how the sizing runs for the entire group. Hopefully, everyone’s order will work for them and I’ll be envious of those who stuck with it. Now that I have some extra money for denim, about those Dawson’s I’ve been eyeing...

    Ryo just got back to me. The 33 one wash measures 41cm across or 32.28” He offered to cancel my order and issue a refund if that size wouldn’t work for me. I took him up on it.

    That’s tough. At this point, I think I’m going to contact them and ask them to measure mine and any that have not shipped out yet. If they don’t conform to the size chart, they can keep the jeans. I don’t want the hassle of returning or unloading them if they’re the wrong size. Edit: the email I just sent

    If the waist is pretty high, then the smaller waist measurement might not be as much of an issue, right? (asking for a friend who’s nervous about his one wash)

    Roy chambrays - because I flipped through every page of this thread today just to see the photos and felt the need to further contribute purchased at a Denimbruin swap meet from Jeremy of S&S Denimbruin gift from Roy purchased online while walking around SF during Denimbruin, and picked up at SESF

    Pretty. Requires selling an organ, but pretty. edit- I guess that this is the significantly less expensive pair that they sell.

    I’m surprised that SE got on board with selling them. It’s very cool, but seems a bit risky.

    Fit is spot on per the sizing chart: my 31 has a 33 waist.

    I’ll probably keep wearing the Circle As until they fall off of me, but the Cee Blues are a fantastic replacement - light, wide, big and deep pockets, high waist, US made from Cone denim.

    My Circle A denimbro collab jeans are paper thin in the places that they do still exist, so it’s time for another pair of something lighter and wide legged. Cory (bandit) and Edwin steered me toward CeeBlues, a brand made by vintage seller and pro skater Gilbert Crockett. I ordered the last pair of Cone chinos in my size and hope to have them soon. Gilbert has some snowy denim from Japan coming toward the end of Summer. https://ceebluesstore.com/?product=cee-blues-leigh-chino-indigo-cone-natural-stitching-selvedge
