    Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    Considering that I had bought it nine years ago, not so much. It's also a bit on the tight side now. I'll see, if I can get a picture in the next days. Not really. There's Duke's overview of the different cuts of the jeans and there is a blog post in Chinese comparing two type 1s and a type 2.

    Mine is similar, no red tab, pocket flap, but buttons are engraved (not plain)- I think, it's the 1930s model

    Very nice That's the 1927 version of the 506XX, right?

    WW2 repro / detailed jeans

    The (White Oak, I guess) Cone denim really is something special.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Perhaps these from The Flathead? Horsehide Serviceman Shoes (Brown Tea-core) Edit: Just saw, that max size seems to be US10.

    Perhaps Cheaney. I have a pair of their derbys and am quite satisfied with the quality. My feet somehow in the last years got wider. These work well. Also the Trickers Derbies. Perhaps you can find a pair in Cordovan.

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    I also have a McCoy sweat shirt, I think Ball Park, that after a normal wash at 30C with no dryer, shrunk quite a bit in the body. For me that is the vintage fit now. Before it was about 4cm, 1.5 inches longer. The lower edge of the sweatshirt is now basically touching the waist of my, medium or so rise, jeans. I think, it's even a XL. But this one is also six years old or so. Perhaps they also changed the fit.

    Thanks for that great overview. When was the last time FW released the 663? Would you say, that the 663 is.60s cut comparable to say the Resolute 710? I saw, that they had an ecru and black version. Which of these is closest to the LVC 1947?

    Nice Things

    I've got a La Pavoni Europrofessional and can recommend it. It does have a boiler/kettle but no pump. To create the pressure to extract the crema from the coffee it also has a lever. So there is a bit of an artful handling involved and learning it. Previously I used the Commandante with the 9barrista and that also produced a pretty good espresso. Then I got the La Pavoni and enjoy making micro foam steamed milk with it for my cappuccino. And recently I got the Niche grinder, which I can also highly recommend. The La Pavoni might not be ideal, if you need a machine for the office with lots of espressos you want to make. I'm making between 1 and 6 and for that it's great. The price with around EUR 800 is also worth it. Apparently they recently increased prices, so you might still find a dealer with the previous price.
