  1. @Saisen - are those length measurements Inseam cuffed or un-cuffed?

    Sugar Cane Denim

    that's a really nice one - my pair is too small by now - the fabric does not stretch a lot!

    I understand the need for customization and custom patterns and, as a tailor (and pattern maker), I can appreciate the beauty of hand-made button holes, but as far as jeans are involved I get a kick out of Conners or Bowery Blue Makers and their approach of customizing an originally mass-produced, industrial object. in the end these are 2 sides of the same coin - customization (and, maybe, a more holistic, sustainable model of consumption).

    more importantly - did lawyers get involved and who had to pay for those?

    WAYWT 2019 (denim edition)

    CR2 has been my favorite cocktail for a number of years - good starting point for an evening at the bar slowly getting dryer until you reach a perfect Martini!

    careful @volvo240thebest - you risk converting from a cat-fanboy to a pig-fanboy... nice fit & a lovely outfit - now go get a sandwich!

    definitely German dumplings - Semmelknoedel, most likely.
  12. good question... I'm with you - $300-400 for a good Japanese pair seems to be the golden standard these days. for more one can expect natural indigo (which nobody really needs), etc. exceptions are: - WH Ranch - $200 would probably still be too much... - Bowery Blue Makers & Conners - certainly expensive for what they are, but in my eyes it makes sense around $800 the AI-argument (or silver/gold rivets, hand-woven denim, Japanese cotton, etc.) is losing it's appeal.

    Japan Blue Momotaro

    @lance - the pocket lining looks like a jacquard, the logo is woven into the fabric (not embossed).

    time's up for another wash...before-pics: not sure when the light's right again for after-pics - might take a while...

    Italian Pizza-Head Cat-Boy instead of Paninaro?

    my guess is that the selvedge side is flat and stays down after being pressed open - the non-selvedge side has cut-open picks (weft yarns) that will only swell in diameter with washing and un-twisting and, therefore, is less likely to stay pressed-open... also the selvedge side forms a rigid, closed line with tension - the open side has no tension (other than the next next couple of warp yarns) and can be extended and stretched.

    everything - pre-wash pics and measurements - post wash measurements... take your time to break them in and, eventually, post fit pics and updated measurments.

    could be worse - ok for pre-distressed. personally, I find their biker-shop collaborations more troublesome...

    Cool jeans - wrong cut (for me).

    that's only 6+1 jackets - there is still room to add another jacket or two...type 1 and pleated blouse type jackets are missing.

    got SDA's 9835 from late 2016 - easily one of nicest sweatshirts I own. personally, I think the special cotton is worth the extra buck, but since we are already at the high-end of the scale this is a very subjective statement. there are certainly cheaper options available. in any case, I would focus on the fit and if it works for me.

    doubt that - there are only 3 ways to get cheaper: cut corners, cut profits or increase volumes...
