    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    In the opening paragraph the author says: ”Across the internet, you’ll find articles, forums — hell, entire websites — devoted to the art of denim maintenance. Some connoisseurs insist you need to wait a year before washing jeans if you want Instagram-worthy fades; in the meantime, they suggest, getting the stink out is as easy as throwing them in the freezer.” But then all of the experts they interview say this is silly.

    That’s great to hear about the fabric. I was wearing the black Cody last night and told my wife I ordered the same shirt in a brown corduroy. Her first comment was “Did you order it in a bigger size?”. Haha, I don’t think I need it in a bigger size but definitely good to hear the fabric has some give to it.

    Was waiting for months to see if you’d get the corduroy Cody Shirts, and was a bit bummed when the first shipment came in a few weeks ago. Really glad you ended up ordering these and Instacopped the brown one. I have the black denim, olive trigger shirt, and now this. Not sure why I’m sleeping on the indigo denim one...

    My lot 64 Okinawa had a raw patch, but I saw a few examples in store of the ‘44 and ‘54 with patches that looked much more aged, despite raw fabric.

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Yea no one can argue that they are overpriced from an economic perspective. Would probably still sell out if they were sold for the $600+ Kiya threw out there.

    What aspect of the jeans are you referring to? I’ve heard many people comment that ooe stitching is as good or better than Roy. However, although I’ve Never seen a pair in person, ooe look like just a basic pair of very well made jeans, whereas Roy jeans ooze creativity, with all the crazy yet still hidden details. Im not sure those details can qualify them as better jeans, but to my eyes there still appears to be something to Roy jeans that even Ooe can’t reproduce.

    Looks in way better shape than mine! Best of luck selling. Trading in for something else?

    I know it’s a bit more of a modern interpretation but I would highly recommend the ironheart n1 over any repro version. Their cuts are more in line with a modern aesthetic. I am 6’0” 195lbs broad shoulders big chest and always have trouble getting shirts from these Japanese companies to fit. Shoulders, chest, and sleeves in large are usually too small and body / length in XL is usually too big. Size large in the ironheart n1 fits me great. I think you’re a bit shorter than me but you’ll probably have better luck getting ironheart to fit. You may still need to tailor the sleeve length but I think the rest of the body and sleeve volume will be more to your liking.

    Doesn’t attractions sell another model that has an even slimmer toe box than the 268 style we normally see here? these ones: https://wearmasters-store.jp/shopdetail/000000000356/

    The shafts of my van Cleefs are covered in indigo stains from my 5x washed flatheads. amazing they are still bleeding indigo. Keeping stains off of these things is impossible, so I would do what Dude says and just embrace it.

    @mlwdp I’m tempted by those stock horse hides, but I don’t like that you can’t get them without the toe protection at the moment.

    I would have maybe preferred a slightly smaller buckle (lengthwise) or one in polished brass, but the ones on these are leagues better than the fluted style that used to be the only available option.
