  1. This is straight-up bad advice.

    ^ Myself, I wouldn't wear $350 Jeans to work construction, but if you're happy to then I'm sure the Evo on them will be quite rapid.
  3. Can this topic be moved to the Small Questions Thread, please. Please read the Denim Encyclopedia thread (before creating new threads) as it will save uncessarry or duplicate threads from being created. It's pinned to the front page under the Small Questions and the This or That thread. Thanks

    Some updates on my Big Bro 2's. All in natural light, which is why they're varied.

  6. I had to repair my Joe McCoy's ballpark sweat yesterday after wearing it sparingly for two years or so. Today I'm wearing a Carhartt sweat that was 1/3 of the price and has been worn hard for 5 years. Theres no noticeable wear on it anywhere. The quality of each is not the same but the longevity is starting to tell it's own story.

    (They're just a pair of memorial jeans incorrectly listed. The seller has mixed up his Roy's specs that's all) Edit: I take that back ^. I think they looks suspiciously like they're being sold by Roy Himself - Seen that measuring rule before and the sellers name is an anagram or play on Roys surname. Edit 2: Detective Work - Photo - See same Rule in the background - hanging up under the black power cable.
  8. Please use the Small Questions or Selfedge thread for this. @xiaobenben
  9. This will be a waste of time. The initial soak/washes are to deal with the properties of the unsanforized denim. Such as shrink, and removal of starch etc etc. You won't achieve any stretch by wearing and attempting to stretch unsoaked - unsanforized denim. All that effort will be completely eradicated when they're soaked. Just turn inside out and soak for minimum of 30 mins in luke warm water, then wear. Maybe soak or machine wash again to remove all remaining shrinkage. That's it. Ignore 'tag size' just use measurements given. (Always turn inside out)
  10. Shoes that look better with age...

    So heres a quick shot of my Redwing rebuild. They started out as 875s on a Christy sole and now have a Full storm welt on leather mid sole and Dr.Sole raw cord sole and heel. The mid and welt were stained and waxed as well. Here with a black flat waxed lace, but Felix (the bookmaker) recommends a brown to sit properly on these. The new welt will most likely darken over time, and I'm tempted to wax them with a slightly darker wax to bring them down a tone. All in good time. There's also a few very neat touches that were thrown in that I've just noticed today. I'll update all of this further with detailed pictures. To all intents and purposes these boots are (almost) new, in that they look and feel (better) and have been hand remade. I couldn't be happier with them. I've already voiced the idea of a pair of handmade boots, maybe boondockers....? Felix is based in Shoreditch, London, and hand makes boots to order This is something people in the UK will be pleased to hear. If you especially like Engineers you should definitely check him out. https://www.instagram.com/felixjouanneau/ Edit: put a couple of extra pictures up. Here

    Mine have all stretched around an inch with wear and return to tag when washed.
  12. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I agree with this. @kbuzz Unless you've warm washed those Roy's, and done a couple of soaks then there's more shrink to be had. Mine shrank during the first three or four soak/washes. They always stretch past tagged size and go back to tag after washing. You'll be pleasantly surprised with them after another warm wash I think.

    W A N T WANT Want want Damn! Not a very helpful post, but you get the idea.

    Just bought these on sale and thought I'd proof/darken them. They've come up quite well & it was an easy job (left is the original colour)
