    Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    A small update from the past week or so, taking care of my mate's dog, latest homebrew is finally done and lastly a pic from Daniel Norgren's show last night - by far my favorite musician.

    They did have other fabrics before the banner denim came along. If you go back in the thread there's been a lot of discussion over the years when they changed the fabrics.

    The Alamo is a great shirt! Especially like the new red version. Don't know why the pocket flaps are designed that way, but they are very nerdy with their designs so I'm sure there's a thought behind it. Perhaps Neil can shed some light on it.

    Vintage Denim?

    Let's see if you can stop yourself at "just" one jacket, haha. Either way, looking forward to loads of pics if you get your hands on one.

    I'm a bit lazy and posting this 60's Lee 81-LJ here instead of the Lee-thread. Not at home at the moment so I only have a few detail pics. Will sort out more once I find the time.

    Thanks Bartles, @Flash and @MJF9 I'll shoot some more pics in the appropriate thread. I have my good friends Jonas and Olof that run goteborgmanufaktur.se They also do repairs very well, both have studied textile production too. But I'm also thinking of doing it with old school sashiko repairs. We'll see what I do!

    No fit pics for you Bartles, but at least a photo dump from the last wash.

    Weekend vibes! Here's a bombardment of booze and a bunch of scores. For about a week now GBG beerweek has been running here, basically loads of beer related events. Sadly I wrecked my budget last weekend, but we'll get to that in a minute. First I'd like to salute my favorite Swedish brewery that specializes in sour beers - Fermenterarna. The only event I went to this week was when they were in town. Definitely worth checking out if you can get ahold of it. I know https://glasbanken.se/ stocks some, though not sure if they ship anywhere else than the nordic countries. While talking about booze me and a friend kicked off a New England IPA two weeks ago. Looking yummie so far. And I tried some proper cider for probably the first time not too long ago. Expected it to be much better than the cheap shit that's usually about, but this was very tasty. Last weekend my good friends at https://goteborgmanufaktur.se/ was hosting a pop-up for a guy selling parts of his vintage collection and some nice stuff from Mister Freedom, Real McCoys, old Warehouse and White's. Apparently we had the same shoe size so I snagged a barely used pair of White's for a steal. Also picked up a pretty tattered Lee 81LJ from the 60's and an almost NOS Filson jacket from the 30's. It was not a healthy experience, haha.

    Denime

    For me it's because it's pretty apparent that Naoki loves denim very much and is so helpful and easy to do business with. Denimio is just a business from the get-go as far as I can remember; they saw a business opportunity with Japanese retail prices but fluent English customer service. It rubs me the wrong way.

    No mate, the 800 doesn't use the banner denim, but the more rough 14,5 oz denim. Great stuff though! And same denim on both the 800 and 800XX. Think you can find both in raw and one wash.

    My C/L jeans states 55 % cotton and 45 % linen (or other way around, it's kanji eh). Beautiful jeans none the less Broark.

    The denim looks a bit like the cotton/linen fabric they did a while back. Although a tad lighter in color.
  20. ^ Yes, you're required to clearly state that it's sponsored content, at least that's how it is in Swedish marketing law. It's been vague for a long time but we've had a few verdicts in Sweden on some of our big influencers lately because it's missleading marketing. Though just like the way social media contests also breach marketing laws all the time there's not many cases that seems to get filed. Hopefully Instagram gets a little jumpy over losing legitimacy and addresses the issue with new features.

    Isn't it the new sub brand Inoue was posting about some time ago?

    What have you all been up to this weekend folks? Looks like spring is finally arriving in Gothenburg for real. On this pic I'm crossing the moat which circles around the inner part of Gothenburg. Way back there were bastions all around. If I recall correctly what we cann Gothenburg today was built in the early 15th century with help from the Dutch. On the right side of the picture is Stora Teatern, one of the cities theaters. One of my favorite spots in the city is Kafé Höganord, a combined café which has great coffee, soups and Danish smörrebröd, but also a great record store. It's located in a cozy courtyard. Definitely worth a stop if you're in town. Got some new Lightnin' Hopkins, Viagra Boys and Honungsvägen with me this time around. Bonus beer and doggie shots.
  24. Great stuff Chicote and Ooms!
