    Yes, that's been my experience with a couple Type I denim jackets as well. The rivet does its job.

    @cultpop 0217, my favorite fit I've seen you in. A fitting tribute. My condolences to you and the community. The elders there are fewer and more precious and their loss will be deeply felt.

    Yeah, the White Oak Saddle Pant is exclusive to S&S. You won't be finding that stocked at other shops. I passed on them and having handled them, regret it. Oh well. Currently wearing my OA01XX-0522 as a consolation. Haha. Great pair of jeans. Nearly identical to the Warehouse 1001 '47 cut.

    It looks to be intentionally misleading to me. They clearly omit that this fabric is woven at White Oak. The labels they show are not White Oak labels. Yet they tout the heritage of the White Oak Mill and the Draper X-3 in the next section. It also feels fishy that they include "representing the American denim all over the world." Looks like an intentionally vague statement to create the argument that they never misrepresented where this Cone Denim comes from. I wonder what shuttle looms they're running in China.
  5. @shredwin_206 Who did you have do the work? I love the wedge sole on these 4Q's. They're my comfort boots both for riding and for walking. I am thinking about having Unsung House resole a pair of 10 year old Chippewa Originals with basically White's setup for the 350 Cruiser.
  6. 1,300 miles through the dusty desert on Harleys and back home again. Both in need of a good cleaning. Gonna give the jeans another couple weeks of wear before the final wash to end the contest. Hoping a couple great sleepers find their way out of the ether as we close things out.
  7. @efujobu1 no, it's only a one year contest.
  8. Last month of the contest and we're winding it down. I'm on the road in Baja California riding motorcycles with my partner from Los Angeles to Los Cabos. A perfect way to close things out with these jeans. I hope everyone is doing well out there.

    @unders, I still tell people who scoff at premium denim prices, but want a good reliable pair of jeans to just buy a standard Levi's 501. My uncles both wore them to construction sites every day long after the manufacturing was outsourced, the denim woven on an air jet loom and all whif of "americana" was gone from their handling. They held up to the abuse just fine.

    @Double 0 SoulI remember that loopwheel thread with "whatever123." It was pretty glorious good internet drama. I also remember the days of the Myspace music forums...flame wars to armageddon.
  11. @srudy, I am sorry for your loss. Though I've never had the privilege of meeting you in person, please feel the hug I'm sending as genuine, warm and kind. I hope the warmth of this forum's wishes shines some needed light on you. Same to you, @bartlebyyphonics. Sending you digital hugs and sincere condolences.
  12. Thanks, @aho. I've been around enough of these not to get too confident. There's always someone out there lurking with something killer. I mean, I guess we were required to post monthly, but if it's a great pair it's a great pair.
  13. Thanks, @shredwin_206! The jacket is the TCB S40s.

    @beanjarothat fit looks spot on. Those jeans are tight out of the wash, but stretch nicely after a week of wear. That fabric is best washed every four weeks or so, so you get plenty of wear time after they're fully stretched. Should be golden.
  15. A little late on the January update. I'll try to get another in before the end of February. Last two months!
