    UES Denim

    Yeah, these days I usually just suck it up and deal with looser-fitting shirts to get sleeves and a hem that are actually the right length for me. I find that it rarely looks sloppy on me, so it seems to be working.

    UES Denim

    Yep, that's my old shirt that I sold years ago. It was definitely too short, the new one ought to be just the right length. I'm about 6'3" / 170 lbs. I don't have the amp anymore, I use a Line 6 Helix for all my amplification needs these days.

    UES Denim

    Ordered this UES Green Heavy Flannel today. Really excited, looks like a great fabric and should fit well. The two shades of green look great, and I like the contrast of the salmon-colored stripes. I had one UES flannel about four years ago and it was a great looking shirt, but about a size too small. I got a 2/Medium, when I should've gotten a 3. Didn't help that this was back when I was trying to squeeze into the slimmest-fitting clothes I could manage.

    That stuff has been on their site for almost a year, still no sign of the new jeans...

    Nice fit! You could've sized down but that doesn't look bad at all.

    Self Edge has longer inseam versions of the 900xx and 800xx coming soon, that's what I'm waiting for. Might be possible to stretch them out when damp but I'd be surprised if you got more than an inch from that.

    ...I have no idea what's going on in here.

    Great looking jeans b_F! I think that's one of your best-fitting pairs.

    Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    I have three Merz 2-thread tees, all size Large. They're great. I think they're the best-fitting fancy T-shirts I've owned - but I'm a tall, thin guy with a Scandinavian/Germanic type of build that they probably had in mind when they designed the cut. The fabric and quality on all of mine have been fantastic. I think the Warehouse 4601 is the best T-shirt I've come across, though. The neck construction (and construction in general) is amazing. The fabric is the best of any fancy T-shirt I've handled. It's super soft and has so much character. According to their site, the fabric is made on a "vintage low-gauge knitting machine even rarer than a loopwheeler" with a #12 slub yarn. It's possible that they modified some vintage machine to get these results, but given the uniqueness and exceptional quality of this jersey, I'd say this is not a case of deceptive marketing or misrepresentation; I think this is better and more impressive than any loopwheeled fabric I've handled.

    I try to only wear one pair at a time. Right now it's Full Count 1108 in the warmer months and Flat Head 3005 in the colder months. And one, sometimes two, days a week I'll mix things up with 3Sixteen chinos. I have some Eternal 811s to wear eventually but thankfully not a huge "backlog" of jeans to work through. I find this system works really well. I don't have much decision fatigue (basically choosing between jeans, olive chinos, or beige chinos) on any given day and wearing the same jeans almost every day means they fade nicer, faster. There are a couple of pairs I want to wear (Warehouse 800xx, TCB 50s) but I'm not likely to start wearing anything new until maybe next fall.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    My Wesco 7500s are my go-to footwear in the cooler half of the year, I probably wore them every other day from about October-May. As nice as it'd be to have a pair of Clinch or whatever, the Wescos fit me good and have a great profile and leather, even if Lofgren or Clinch might have slightly cleaner finishing overall. It's hard to beat these Wescos for sheer value offered. Really the only boots I'd really love to add to my collection would be something like the Viberg Boondocker or Lofgren M-43, a good rugged daily boot that I could wear instead of sneakers in the warmer months (at least that's the idea I have in my head, maybe it wouldn't be that comfortable.)

    I think Kiya is right in general in terms of producing a special jean - but since TCB is a small, flexible maker which makes their products in their own workshop rather than having a contractor sewing factory manufacture, it's easier for them to pull it off fairly quickly than most other brands.

    The feel has changed somewhat as a new-ish group of people (who I think were DenimBro regulars?) joined/came back to SuFu, but man... Sufu 2020 is downright Chuck-E-Cheese compared to 9-10 years ago, when it was extremely hostile and full of dudes trying way too hard to out-cool each other.

    It was actually at Pronto's Denim Carnival in 2013 when I went there with Flat Head.

    You know what's really crazy? Edmond is one of about 4-5 SuFu members I've met in real life.
