    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I would never buy a pair of jeans unless they measured 35-36in waist, >= 13in thigh, and <9in leg opening raw. Having these measurements doesn’t guarantee the fit will work, but having something different in any of those areas would guarantee they will not work. But I would also never look at the measurements if there weren’t something compelling about the denim, details, or brand history. So, really it all matters to me. If i only cared about fit I would probably just buy something from Bonobos with a little bit of stretch. If I cared only about fabric there are tons of interesting choices that would look absolutely terrible on me.
  3. The ooe leather looks sweet, but I find those Cossack jackets to look too costumey sometimes and I think the fine creek will be much more versatile.

    I’ve been having a great time reading through all the posts on this topic. Funny coincidence that this popped up today on gear patrol. I’m sure this type of mainstream advertisement on a hypedriving website won’t help the wait time. https://gearpatrol.com/2019/01/18/w-h-ranch-r1901-ryder-ready-to-wear-jeans/

    Shoes that look better with age...

    I don’t have the Roberts, but a similar model on the same last (I think) with a soft toe that was sold through a retailer called Zurick a few years back. I have no complaints. They are four years old now, have seen daily wear for at least 3 of those years, and are still going strong with little to no maintenance. I really lucked out on theses. They had them on sale and I got them shipped for <$300

    Samurai Jeans

    I’ve been out of the game for some time now, and don’t have the motivation to go through 2 years of posts, but BiG still isn’t selling any of the “normal” brands on their site and have totally revamped their product offering. I’m guessing the lawsuit didn’t turn out well for them, or they just decided it wasn’t worth fighting and changed their business model accordingly. Bummer for the denimheads at least.
