    Sugar Cane Denim

    Ah, that's unfortunate they didn't have your size then. I remember these didn't really sell out right away until a few months later, but it's still crazy to think that these came out 13 years ago. I was still in high school! The size 34 measures pretty good all around, but it's a Japanese slim-straight so the front and back rise are a bit shallow and the thighs are slimmer; However, I took that into consideration when searching for a pair and sized up (I'm a true 32) so it's still loose enough for me to wear comfortably. Luckily this pair has only been cold rinsed once as they are unsanforized so they'll most likely shrink more with hot washes/soaks, but I'll probably be only cold rinsing these moving forward. Overall, I'm very happy I was able to pick these up and add them in my collection. I'm not sure when I will be breaking them out though as I've just been religiously wearing my Roy x SE R01s, which is a super slow fader. I also have a brand new pair or Sugar Cane BSPOW Okinawa I still need to break in. Too many Jeans not enough legs lol...

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Just wanted to share my joy on this recent pick up on a pair of SEXSC06 from 2008 I've been on a long search for. Always wanted a pair, but just wasn't able to afford it back in the day. I was honestly doubtful I'd ever find a pair in my size and in decent condition, but lo and behold an unworn pair popped up. It has only been cold rinsed and has not been altered or hemmed. I'm really surprised a pair in this pristine condition was even listed for sale considering it's been over a decade since its release. The cut is a Japanese slim straight, which isn't really my taste anymore (I've been wearing a lot of classic straight), but I had to pull the trigger as they are still one of my all time favorite jean. Enjoy the detailed pics below: I really enjoy the buffalo patch and the lightweight 50/50 cotton/sugarcane fibers The yellow corduroy pocket bags and pin check rear pocket lining are probably my favorite details. Very thin green selvedge line...

    “If it starts not being fun, I’ll have to reevaluate what I’m doing.” - ROY Sad that this day had come. Bummed I couldn’t pick up a shirt, but grateful I own a few of his jeans. His work is truly magical and every piece he’s made is a masterpiece.

    Gosh, I wish Roy would make shirts again. I’d throw all my money at him. I’ll be patiently waiting...and praying

    Isn’t the R01 considered Classic Straight? I own several “Relax Tapered” jeans, and when comparing them to Roy’s R01 cut they are completely different. I do enjoy the more roomier all around shape for the R01, but I feel the leg opening has barely any tapering, if any

    This has been long overdue, but I decided to snap some fit pics of my Roy XX20 that I recently purchased from @Smallrod. Thank you for such a smooth transaction! These are size 32 and was machine washed twice by Smallrod (quick wash setting on HOT, no spin, and air dried). I believe all the shrinkage has been accounted for; however, I will be washing/soaking these in cold water moving forward. As for the fit, I love it. About 4 inches were hemmed off and the length is just perfect after the two hot washes as it allows me to cuff just one time or leave it uncuffed without too much stacking. It still has the classic straight look, but is tad bit slimmer compared to my ROY x SE Cloth Patch and my R01SAIL. For reference, I am 6’1 about 170lb. The fabric on the XX20 is really nice and is completely different from Black Seed. It is definitely more airy, almost like a loose-tension weave that has a slight slub/texture to it. The fabric is also more of a deep blue in real life, which I really enjoy. From the looks of it, I feel this new fabric will fade a lot quicker than Black Seed. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase and really happy to add these to the collection. Can’t wait to see how they’ll turn out in a few months/years. Note: Please don’t mind the unfinished baseboards as we are currently remodeling the flooring.

    Will definitely be keeping an eye out on both the Test Lots and Memorials on Ebay. I already have 2 pairs of Black Seed Roys, but maybe 1 more wouldn't hurt @Broark - Do you know what was the retail price for the 2018 Roy Test Lots and Memorials?

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Hello all, I was hoping if any of you LVC enthusiasts have any info/knowledge on the Vintage Levi's Hudson Bay Trucker Jacket? I don't see this jacket being discussed a lot on forums/threads. I have a few inquiries below regarding this jacket that I hope someone from this community will have knowledge of and can answer. Thanks so much in advance!! Is this an authentic Levi's x Hudson Bay Jacket from the 80's? I know that Levi's did a collaboration with Hudson Bay on a Type III which released a couple years back, but there is no confirmed info on when the vintage version released and how far it dates back. Also, the Levi's label is something that I've never seen before (see image below), which throws me off. Is the vintage version an actual collaboration with Hudson Bay or did Levi's just chose a lining that looks identical to the Hudson Bay colored stripes? This one boggles my mind the most: I noticed that 99% of the vintage versions of this jacket has the 'Levi's' red chest tab cut off. Is there a reason for this? Any additional knowledge on this jacket, its history, and how to date it will be greatly appreciated.

    Does anyone recall if the R01Sail (Very Nice Pocket Bags) were rinsed by Roy or were they unsanforized when they hit SE? Looks like all info about the jeans have been taken down from SE site.

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Any thoughts on whether Roy would ever produce shirts/tops again? I recently read a post on Reddit discussing a Roy x Self Edge denim jacket that was possibly in the works, but never made it through the pipeline for some reason. Would love to hear thoughts as I (and I'm sure the majority of us here) have been yearning for a Roy shirt/top as of late.
