    ^^I used to be in the TSB 'Super-Savers-Club' when i was a school kid, i wanted those pot piggy banks which were a family of pigs but never saved up enough money to even get the piglet. I don't remember a 'Jeans Scheme' although i have been scheming to buy jeans ever since...

    I had no idea that office workers wore swanky keyrings by means of standing out from their cheaper keyring wearing peers, i'm surprised any of them even notice. ^^You'll always be 'dazzling' to me Iron-Horse.....wait! do you mean the clip?

    I remember in the early days of superdenim, printing off a Rakuten order form which was in Japanese that a sufu'er had translated (put your name here, address here, card details here and so on) this was before google-translate and faxing it off.... to goodness knows where.

    My pleasure Tilmann Entirely down to cycling, for the good of my jeans i should probably trade in the Brooks for something with a bit more give.

    Here's a little flick-book of my 46's, cradle to grave over 3yrs These were only worn for a few hours each day, in the evenings while i was wearing my other CSF 46's for work. . . . . . . ...from the back . . . . . . . . R.I.P

    They seem like a bit of a waste of money to me especially those using precious metals, the only job my keyring has is... i can grab my keys at a glance rather than mistakenly picking up my Mrs keys when i leave the house. I am very partial to keyrings commemorating crappy visitor attractions tho, but i would never buy one to replace the one i have, if its perfectly good at doing its previously mentioned job. I wouldn't mind a Pepe clip with telephone wire..

    Ive had this keyring on my car keys for the last 20yrs A friend of mine brought it back from Japan sometime around the late 90's - early 2000's, she bought us all one It's a real life (well dead) scorpion sealed in a block of resin..

    I bought that SC down vest in minty-blue back in 2007ish not knowing that it was MiC I wouldn't knowingly buy 'down' from China but i was on very good terms with Vari staff back then so i sent it back, think i swapped it for a sweatshirt or something.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    I'm afraid so, look at the front it just screams 'pre-distressed' Hmm, i doubt it, the M41104 are 10oz denim from the 90's, those carpenter pants are an 11oz denim from c2004 If you want to acheive a similar wear pattern to those carpenter pants you would have to wear them hard for 6-12months without washing and then hot wash regularly thereafter (maybe chuck a few scoops of pumice in the washing machine for good measure) personally i think they look awful, but your jeans, your choice. I'm of the mindset that nice fades tend to result from not giving too much of a shit, just wear them hard and whatever will be, will be, i can guarantee the results will be much better than that^

    Sugar Cane Denim

    All jeans start life in a raw state, most denim-heads will either buy denim 'raw' or in 'one-wash' state, ie- raw denim that has been washed once to get the majority of the shrink out so the wear will be 'your own' the fading will fit to your body shape and the jeans will look natural. Some manufacturers offer pre-distressing where the jeans have been given the artificial appearance of wear, this looks very false although some are better at achieving the results that others. For instance those^ carpenter pants were sold as 'hard-wash' the whiskering you see is 'pre-distressing' along with the faded areas to the front and back, then somebody has washed them extensively ever since removing most of the indigo. SC used to offer...Raw, One wash & Hard Wash, then around 2008 they started to offer jeans in accordance with 1yr wear (hard-wash) 5yr wear (extensive whiskering/combs) and 10yr wear (patched holes) all of which, distressed prior to sale, this kind of nonsense is generally frowned upon here but there is a market for it in the wider world.. If you compare true 'vintage' denim to the denim in our evo threads you will notice that generally speaking vintage denim has much less contrast when comparred to what folks like to acheive nowadays...the reasons for which are numerous. Edit- It might have been 1yr, 3yr & 5yr, i can't quite remember..

    No probs, They're actually nos, the 'fading' is SC's vintage processing (hard-washed) its just a more vintage/less contrasty fade on these 10oz wide leg cuts.

    The back pocket shape looks more in tune with 30's era Lee's but slapped on a war model.
