  1. Hey guys, I have some very exciting news to share. Soon I will release a collaboration I’ve done with my good friends at http://www.goteborgmanufaktur.se and Shingo-san of Denimbridge, sewn by the one man army Kuniyoshi-san of Double Volante in their new project Denim Base. 14 oz greatness made in Japan with a really nice vintage vibe to the fabric and a lovely olive herringbone fabric for the pocketbags. Measurements: Size W26 W27 W28 W29 W30 W31 W32 W33 W34 W35 W36 W38 W40 Waist/inch 25 26 27 28 29 29.9 30.9 31.9 32.9 33.8 34.4 36.4 38.4 Front rise/inch 10.6 10.8 11 11.2 11.4 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.4 12.6 13 13.4 Back rise/inch 12.6 12.8 13 13.2 13.4 13.6 13.8 14 14.2 14.4 14.6 15 15.4 Thigh/inch 11.1 11.3 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.5 12.8 13 13.2 13.5 14 14.4 Knee/inch 7.5 7.6 7.8 8 8.1 8.3 8.4 8.6 8.7 8.9 9.1 9.2 9.2 Leg opening/inch 6.9 7 7.1 7.2 7.3 7.4 7.5 7.7 7.8 7.9 8 8 8 Inseam/inch 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 Shingo measures the front and back rise a little differently which gives different measurements from the BiG-method. Here you can see how he measured them if you scroll down: http://denimbridge.jp/overseas Fabric: A14 oz denim with a very light pink selvedge-ID made by a blend of US cotton. It was made to capture the essence of vintage Cone and I'd say it turned out very well. It starts out flat and uniform before it hits water, then it crocks like crazy (which you kind of can see in the pic above). Should get some nice vertical falling, going by the washed samples. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project. If you want to see a little of how the fabric ages Shingo has started using it for his latest Denimbridge cut. http://denimba.com/denimbase/2018/11/03/23478 Since there's been talk about doing a Denimbridge contest for a few years now I was thinking now might be a good time with a special release. The jeans will be made in August so a contest could be possible to start late September. I'll have more info to share in the next couple of days and will post more details about the jeans. But for now, what do you guys say, shall we put up a contest? Edit: I will continue to update the first post when we release more info. Here's sneakpeak shots to get a little bit excited:

    Until June 15th. It's quite short but not much to do since we have already booked production slots quite some time ago.

    Haha, so sorry Maynard. But I'm glad you like them! No it hasn't. We've cut our margins quite a bit so the price will be 229 € for the pre-orders. Thanks for the comparison John! I'm picking up the final sample today, so after I have washed them this weekend I can do some comparisons as well.

    @volvo240thebest Yeah mate, I'm a 33 in TCB. Goes for 20's, 50's and 60's.

    @Hendsch I would go for a 30 if you want a 29 inch waist in the end. The test lot shrank a tad bit more than what the size chart said so the 34's I got ended up a little over 33 inches with max stretch.

    Sorry, forgot to answer you on this one! The first sample jeans stretched about 4 cm in the waist. Though I did take one size too small on that pair, haha.

    @unders Yeah, they stretch quite a bit. I stretched the first sample jeans at least 4 cm.

    Quite close but with more room in the thighs.

    ^ Yeah, I'm a 35 in these just like my Ooe. When we're talking about the tapering it is pretty close to OA02 so they won't feel that tapered. The difference being ours taper more from the knee than Ooe's that starts their tapering earlier in the thighs.

    Great Warehouse jeans posted lately! Here's a small contribution that I've posted a couple of years ago: Deer Hunter jeans, a store brand made by Warehouse.

    Of course it depends on where you live but the banner denim worked well in the summer for me.

    The Flat Head

    That wabash shirt is still my favorite shirt ever. Insane how well it holds its indigo. I've worn it for quite a few years now with loads of washes, yet it's still almost as dark as yours.

    Final sample is on its way from Japan. By the looks of it I can spoil all the details next week, stay tuned! Oh yeah, Shingo posted another fade sample of the fabric the other day: http://www.denimba.com/2019/05/13/24983 That marbling is the bees knees!

    Waiting, waiting, waiting. At least I can share some more info on the denim. Like I stated a couple of days ago its a 14 oz loomstate fabric.
