    I'll see if I can grab a shot with my phone next time I've got some good light!

    Red Cloud & Co. jeans

    See I always thought the color would look really nice once the fabric has lost a ton of color, so I sort of saw that as thinking ahead on the part of the designers. The rivets are a bit dark though, I prefer regular unfinished copper.

    during college I made a bunch of friends on a study abroad course from their home university outside of shanghai, and in 2017 I took a trip to visit them- these R425XX were the logical souvenir courtesy of taobao. I find the cut a little low but otherwise I've been really pleased with these. the fabric's got a lot of character that comes out more and more with every wash, and in terms of construction they're among the best I own. it seems like these are a little easier to acquire online than when I was last watching the denim scene closely, so hopefully more people will be able to get their hands on these.

    The Strike Gold

    with no warning or introduction, here is a pair of SExSG24 I've been wearing for about a year and a half. I think they've seen something like 2 or 3 machine washes to this point and an increasing number of diy repairs. back in 2016 when these were first out I happened to be in NYC and stopped by self edge to check them out and was blown away by the fabric- if there's anything else out there like it I haven't seen it. the next time I found myself in new york I made a stop again and picked a pair up. these were my first and so far only pair of the strike gold but all the details are so great I can totally see myself getting another pair. I always liked the look of the mud dyed fabric...

    The G-003s did indeed work out! They're a little on the loose side but it's not too bad, if I had gotten the 31 I probably would be worried about them shrinking too much come wash time. The taper on this cut is no joke though- I'm lucky I'm shaped like I am or this wouldn't work at all. The warp has some serious slubs in it, feels really nice. I'm super excited to have some double indigo too.

    I ended up going with the 32s, and your impressions make me think that was the right decision. We'll see how they are when they get here!

    Yeah I think you're right, the more I look at the measurements the more I'm thinking the 32 would be better. Still, if anybody with experience with the G3 fabrics can offer any input I'd like to hear it.

    Long time no see, sufu! I recently became aware of the SDA 40th Anniversary stuff with the G3 loom fabrics... of particular interest to me is the G-004, the double indigo model. I assume it would behave similarly to the other G3 variants they're producing in terms of shrinkage and stretch, so my question is essentially how to size this fabric. I'm thinking a raw 31 would be best for the waist to settle around 32"?
