    @JohnM you're correct, I've edited my post for clarity. M-1941 is the correct number for the chinos (FW SKU 2122022). @Duke Mantee you're right on the money about that, hard for me to consider any other brands these days. Been scouring the net for any and all 17.5 shirts I can find.

    Just received a package from Seiichiro at Hoosier, best service out there! Foreman (cotton linen blend in black), Montauk (hemp cotton blend, leaf green) and M-1941 chinos in camel. Photos taken early this morning, so lighting is a little wonky. Washing the M-1941's now, will get some fit pics up afterwards. Just to give you an idea of the service that Seiichiro provides, I asked him if he had a spare button for my Slingshot as it fell off recently. Even though I didn't buy the shirt from him he agreed, and on top of that sent me 6 different color threads...

    Great looking jacket! Looks a lot better than I initially thought it would. I really don’t need any more cold weather gear.

    The YM Factory stuff moves so quickly, I was after a pair of the Army trousers and before I could even confirm with the size chart they were gone. Gotta be Quick Draw McGraw on these.

    I have something in the works, once it materializes I'll let y'all know.

    Let's see some photos! I ended up missing out on these, so if anyone gets a pair of size 38 and wants to move them, I know a guy (me).

    I feel like the over-the-top runoff is getting a little out of hand here.

    Looking forward to seeing photos once it arrives!

    @Cozzie guessing you went with the Lumper jacket? At first I wasn’t too fond of it, but it’s grown on me. Fortunately for my wallet I’ve sworn off new jackets this year!

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Been thinking about giving the boot jack route a go @mpukas. To be honest I'm still working from home and not going out much, so my nicer shoes aren't seeing a lot of time on my feet lately.

    @JDelage I have the same one headed my way, along with a few other things from FW.

    WAYWT 2021 [denim edition]

    Nice insight @bartlebyyphonics, my issue with engineers is the on/off difficulties that I have with the one pair of Lofgren's I have. They're a dream once they're on, but getting them on/off is a chore in and of itself. Are your 444's pretty easy in that department?

    I've kind of sworn off engineer boots, but Bartles I really like those Attractions!

    Out of the three pairs they've released this might be the one I ultimately miss out on. 2 out of 3 isn't bad right?

    Don't hold your breath on that one. I'm really enjoying those, which reminds me I need to get some fit pics up!

    Nice video, thanks for sharing @aho!

    Any recommended Paraboot retailers? Thinking about a pair of Michael’s, so far I’ve only ordered the Arpenteur collaborations.

    @Dan_F I actually don’t own the 601xx 1947’s (yet, hope to someday), but I do own the 1943’s. The S601XX’s by comparison feel a little more snug in the waist as they taper in a little bit in the top block, but the rest of the leg feels pretty similar. Maybe slightly more tapered towards the hem, like a quarter inch difference. It’s negligible really. I haven’t measured them side by side. Biggest difference is the denim which is a bit more irregular and uneven.

    Still really enjoying these S601xx's.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Excuse the shitty fit pics (and Birks, it's all I seem to wear these days since I'm still working from home). These shrank up really nicely, very comfortable and the length is perfect. Makes me want a pair of standard '47s someday.

    Where do I sign up for size 36/38? Glad this is rolling out for you Flash, product looks great. Who knows, I might need a pair in a few years!

    Yeah the patch is great! Looking forward to wearing them, it’s not easy to find straighter legged black jeans.

    I’ll try and get some fit pics up this weekend once they’re dry! This should give you and idea of how the denim should fade.

    Just landed, glad I picked these up (and happened to sell my black PBJs in the same timeframe!) Exactly what I had been after in a pair of black, straight cut jeans. Just threw them in the wash to address any shrinkage, initial fit was good even a tad big at w38.
  25. I'm biased but I prefer Warehouse. I had a pair of Lot 64's awhile ago and felt like the thigh was a little slimmer by comparison. Not much difference aside from that from what I can remember. I sold the Lot 64s some time back. Also some very different detailing going on there, so that comes down to personal preference.
