  1. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Interesting Butt Puckering would be a great band name.

    Thanks guys, they’re at about 4 months of wear with one initial wash and another at the two month mark. They’ve been holding up really well so far, no threads breaking yet surprisingly. I’ll probably wash them next week. Only thing that drives me crazy with them are the tiny front pocket openings!
  3. Conners Sewing Factory

    Almost ready for a wash.

    Boncoura chore coat I believe.

    Or if the 38's are too big you know the guy to contact.

    Thank you @beautiful_FrEaK, looking forward to post wash measurements as well. Still focusing on my 1946 1st half jeans but I think the 47's will be my next pair down the road.
  8. Conners Sewing Factory

    Awesome, please post some measurements when you get those in!
  9. Shoes that look better with age...

    I think this sums it up for me too. Sick of the 2030, pointy toe service boots. They just don't fit my feet well and seem to be a dime a dozen. And Dude, I think that if you had made those points originally a lot of people would have agreed with you. Instead you just claimed that Viberg has fallen from graces or whatever so that's why I wrote what I wrote. I wouldn't say that I'm flat out wrong in saying their construction methods haven't changed, they just started making more GYW options because they were evidently ruining a bunch of leather when attempting stitch down on more thin and exotic leathers. So saying that I'm wrong about the construction methods is BS. If you ask me the whole stitch down vs GYW thing is completely overblown, but I'm no expert and don't claim to be. I prefer the look of stitch down much more as well, but a shoe being GYW is not going to stop me from buying a pair of boots. The new Lofgren M43 Boondockers look great as GYW boots. I don't think there's much point in arguing with you because you're not likely to budge and that's fine, we all have our opinions!
  10. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Not sure where to put this so I figured I would post it here. Today I met a couple people related to Indigofera jeans and Pancho & Lefty Shop from Sweden while they were visiting here in Austin, TX. They were a really nice bunch! I’m terrible with names and forgot, but it was a husband and wife (I believe the wife was working for Indigofera) and she had her husband decked out in Indigofera jeans and a (I think) Freewheelers shirt. The jeans were made from a nice green cast denim I think in the Ray fit. We talked a bit about their jeans and how I had seen them at S&S and various other stores online. She took my card (I work at a small menswear store here, the husband came in and bought some Vuarnet sunglasses the day before) and wrote down my jeans size before she left. I mentioned to her that I had looked at the gunpowder denim before and she told me that during development they had to toy with the fabric a bit because the gunpowder was causing the denim to break down too quickly. I have to say after meeting them I definitely want a pair! Just a random denimhead story for the day.

    I think I’ve talked myself down from the ledge a bit as I already have two pairs of WH jeans using the same denim. They’re great but they’re very expensive and I’m enjoying my 1946 jeans a lot so far so I should just keep wearing them. Honestly i would prefer to pay that much for the jacket, but he said they are all sold. I think I’ve decided I’d rather put that money into a type I or II later this year from Konaka. But who knows, maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and feel differently.
  12. Conners Sewing Factory

    Yeah I’m thoroughly enjoying the WWII denim, it’s irregular without being overly exaggerated. So Konaka just messaged me saying the WH collaboration jeans are available, should I do it? Very tempted...
  13. Pure Blue Japan

    Those definitely aren't PBJ jeans.
  14. Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    @Bobbo they're on the back burner currently, but wore them to lounge around on a lazy Sunday. If you look closely you can see the threads along the back middle seam are disintegrating, so they need some repair work before I put more wear into them.
  15. Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Just a reminder of how awesome the lot 17 denim from Ooe is.
