    Here we go! Had these hemmed to 32 by S&S, happy with the length. I anticipate they'll shrink a little more with a proper wash/dry. Denim feels really nice, perfect for the summer and so is the cut. I'll be wearing these quite a bit now I think.

    These look heavily inspired by the Junky SC 1946s with the super long excess stitch runoff. Those were the first pair I saw with the suuuuper exaggerated runoffs throughout. The thread color even looks really similar. I agree that these look a bit too over the top, especially with so many brands already trying to reproduce this style. Seeing more brands experiment with style of sewing makes me wonder what the next "trend" will be in our niche hobby. More 20s-30s era? Maybe even earlier and jump into the waist overall repros? Is it time to repro 80s era acid wash jeans yet? (I really hope not!)

    Just spent a week in New Orleans wearing my S601XXs, first thing I did when I got home was throw them in the washer. Denim is breaking in nicely, I'm still trying to decide if I should hem them. They look okay with a double cuff but are a little long with just a single.

    Definitely figured these would be slow faders with the light weight denim and loose cut. That's what I'm after for the summer here.

    Fit looks good! And I haven't filed the rivets on my pair down yet, just living dangerously.

    How are you enjoying these after a few months? Any signs of wear so far? Whenever they’re restocked I’m thinking about getting a pair since I don’t really have anything this early.

    I guess dude is too busy playing photo shoot to make jeans that his customers paid for years ago. What a clown, do people actually order from him anymore?

    More previews, this time a 1936 tux. I'm very interested in the jeans, one of my all time favorite pairs that I own are the cinch back OA's that I think are loosely based around this era of vintage Levi's. When looking at the leather patch in the below post, can anyone explain the sub printed 1000XX above the standard location of the 1004XX? I know I have seen this on a vintage pair before, but I don't really know the history of it.

    Looks like the official F/W preview will be posted on the Warehouse website on July 26th. I’m liking these war era Lees.

    You sure you didn't mean to post these in the Ugliest Jeans thread?

    Just posting my Grailed wardrobe again, added my last few IH shirts. Might add some jeans soon, just having a hard time parting with them right now. PM me for Sufu friendly pricing. https://www.grailed.com/broark
  15. Really depends your personal tastes and what kind of scale we're talking about. Right now Freewheelers has been ticking all the boxes for me with everything they offer. From shirts, jackets, jeans and tees all their offerings are top notch from the patterning to the materials used. Warehouse is right up there for me as well. Their offerings are consistent and their pricing is reasonable, they have a big catalog too. I'm also into smaller brands Ooe Yofukuten and Roy, although neither of them are widely available, especially with Roy closing up shop. Other honorable mentions include: Sugar Cane, Mister Freedom, At Last & Co / Timeworn Clothing, OrSlow, Stevenson, Tender.
