    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    happens to me sometimes when i suddenly get inspo to radically change my lewks. thus some things i never wear coz ended up not liking the new lewk: mf vest (belle epoque gangsta look by way of spaghetti western? why did i wanna cosplay that?), superheavy rdt brouge coupen boots (at once ornate bling & lumberjack heavy duty, plain stupid livin in the tropics, think i was just satisfying my curiosity re: "werk boots")... but maybe thats it in last decade or so. most of the time i stick to my standard looks and buy new stuff accordingly. though sometimes a single outré item can/does open up a whole new world of lewk possibilities (eg, a plain white calico butterfly shirt from tender for me).

    World of denim shops

    from having been in denim forums for almost a dozen years now i've seen a lot of people who it seems to me first learned how to dress acquired an interest for styling from these forums, like they didn't come into this bubble with a style that they were comfortable with/into already. hence the abundance of smorgasbord lewks made up of all the best quality/accurate repro stuff that mostly made the wearers look like confused mannequins dressed by drunk parents. when i came into sufu i was already set in my own style (for what it's worth) and was only here to research/find my perfect pair of jawnz (i wrote a long treatise about this very subject on denimbro). of course there were times when i was sucked in into wanting to dress like a dead miner/brit eaton but that phase soon passed. there are brands like tender which for me allowed my long-held but rarely satisfied vision to dress like a bum dressed in yohji (but with more colours) to be pursued/experimented with. otherwise, i still dress pretty much the same as i did when i was sixteen except i can't button up any of my jeans anymore.

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    my short review of the leroy tour jeans from denimbro: some thoughts on the leroygood:- light denim. what is it, 9, 10 oz? perfect for the tropics. - cut, or lack of it. when i first put the leroy on, i thought it was the perfect encapsulation of roy's denim philosophy (i quote from his site):"Jeans are essentially an ill-fitting garment by design and this is what gives them their unique look."it looked like it had no cut whatsoever. just two dark blue tubes going down my crotch. but then after i wore it for maybe a week, i was also reminded how right roy was again:"Here is a concept I’d like to start with: Most jeans, in spite of the cut, will essentially look the same on you as all other jeans. This is because denim fabric stretches out for comfort and literally takes the shape of the wearer. True, the leg may be fuller, etc., but in my experience, the issues most folks are attempting to solve with “the perfect fit” are really more body issues than a fit issue. Therefore, regardless of cut or fabric, the criticism will be of the same tenor, and one tends to fixate on fallacious rules to jeans wearing or jeans they “cannot wear”. I’m aware that this is not a popular opinion, but I’ve made several thousand jeans with my own hands and done several years of custom-fit jeans making, so just take it for what its worth (see above). Now that’s not to say that jeans can’t be more or less flattering. What I’m saying is that the issues most folks are compelled to improve are things that observers of the wearer rarely have issue with. Conversely the “solutions” that the wearer employs often cause the majority of observers to scratch their heads. You’ve no doubt, wondered about someone in line at the cafe wearing exactly the least possible flattering jeans for them. Trust me, they were just trying to solve a problem, to them. Enough amateur psychoanalysis; I’m simply trying point out some observations. Style is opinion, like this one: I think short people look great in wide leg jeans that are hemmed short or cuffed so they don’t touch the shoe. There’s no rules, its all opinion. We’re all wearing costumes that try to convey something about who we are, so express yourself and don’t worry too much about it. If you’re inexperienced then try something."all the bolds are mine. after a couple of weeks the leroy kinda looked pretty similar to all of my widish jeans, my tender, my sc hawaii, my mf cali 54, etc. big up top, with a tiny lil bit of taper. perfect. and it drapes really nice that i only need to double cuff, the whole pant ended up looking quite flattering despite the denim sack early look.- large front pocket opening. superb. i can fit my whole fist right past my wrist in the pockets (also the right depth, my samsung s8 in a thick-ass case can still lie flat on my thigh when sitting). the pockets themselves are made of substantial-feeling twill too, which is alway nice.- fabric patch. i wish all jeans have a fabric patch. best one is on my rs blacksmith. fabric but as stiff as a board.- stitching. beautiful (though maybe sometimes too perfect?). the lockstitch hem is a beauty.bad:- denim at this stage of the game/tour looks a bit loud, white weft tufts everywhere. i can see on top of the thighs they're falling off but if these were samurai or pbj bros would turn their collective nose up.- one back pocket. historically accurate sure, but still looks silly and not practical. if the ooe x denimbro contest with the hercules denim ever happens i'll be asking for two backpockets.- normal sized metal buttons for the suspender buttons. they hurt when lying down on the floor (we indos do this a lot on hot days).

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    @unders i check them just before i wear them after they've just been washed. i like comparing their texture and hand feelz with the other pairs. my favourite after the wash is my rising sun blacksmith in white-selvedge cone, even after all these years it still comes out of the wash quite stiff and "crisp" despite it not being too heavy, maybe 13-14 oz? the tender molleton denim on the other hand is always so velvety and soft (but fades aggressively with much wow contrast) and "meaty". lately i'm also liking the hawaii denim, it's just starting to get white on the lap and the remaining indigo has become very splotchy. i was actually going to post a pic of it in response to @beautiful_FrEaK's ugly slubby denim post to get youse all's opinions on why the hawaii denim, even more slubby than the iron heart that b_f posted, somehow doesn't look anywhere near as ridiculous as the ih. we often talk about slubs being "over-engineered", what does that really mean? the slubs on the ih jeans do look much more "regular" than on the hawaii, but is the regularity actually engineer-able? can you punch numbers in a computer and feed them into a vintage loom to create uniform slubs? this kind of philosophical reflection is the reason why i'm often late for my uber.
