    @Bobbo there's not a whole lot listed on Matin's web store, just a 12 oz. redline selvedge from Japan. Gave them a wash last night, so hope that they'll be dry by tomorrow.
  4. I think if I tried to wear my Viberg engineers I would have the same experience.

    Just received the 20's repro made by Ono-san who works at YM Factory. Very pleased to fill the 20's gap left by the whole TCB competition saga. And I'm happy to say the stitching isn't as orange in real life as it was in the photos! Can anyone explain the history of the little crooked stitch on the corner of the back pockets? I know the TCB pair had this too, so it must be a 20's detail. Also the cinch is a vintage Solide buckle, they put a little protector on it for delivery.

    Black jeans lovers!!!

    In my experience no, they won’t bleed like indigo denim will.
  7. Looking good! I’ve found that I can actually get these over my new Lofgren engineer boots, probably looks better with a straighter legged cut but I’ll try to snap some photos today.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I remember seeing a photo and thinking wow that’s kinda cool, looks cozy. But hell no, not at that price!
  9. @mpukas The Freewheelers N1 this year looks really nice, I’d be interested in one if I didn’t live in Texas.

    Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    I’ve got a merino wool tee from Outlier that I picked up years ago, could be a good replacement. Also are the XL and XXL measurements just duplicates of one another?

    Found a blue Nixon chambray on Yahoo Auctions for cheap, perfect replacement for my Buzz chambray with the blown out elbows!

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Anyone got a good place to proxy Converse Addict from? The new FW release looks good and they make them in an 11.5 which should work.

    How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    I’ll get an updated list posted soon.
  14. Post wash update! This denim is really something else. Also got a new phone, so excited to see how these photos came out. And some more photos from recently, went to a brewery with @longshanks and Selvedge1 on Instagram (don't think he has an account here?)
  15. Caved and washed my pair last night, hope to snap some pictures this evening or tomorrow.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Really wish Moto made up to size 12, their oxfords look really nice.

    @mlwdp haven’t thought that far yet, I’ll ask S&S what they recommend as it’s my first horsehide pair.

    Got my S&S x Lofgren Devil's Causeway boots in today, very pleased with them. It was a long wait but it was worth it, this leather is really unique and the size 12 fits perfectly. I was a little worried when I first got them as I really struggled to get the right boot on. But the plastic bag trick worked thankfully. Looking forward to some cooler temps so I can wear these daily, so far I'd say I'd buy another pair of Lofgren's no questions asked.

    I'm hoping that with the introduction of Warehouse at SE means some slightly more western friendly sizes for their shirts and jackets. Part of me doesn't understand why you'd make jeans up to size 38 and but shirts that equate to a US large, but then again Japanese guys wear their jeans a lot looser sometimes. Also check out these deadstock 1000XX's, so good! Flasher and all.

    Poor inventory control would be my guess.

    Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Oh that’s interesting, hadn’t heard that they’d be a different color. What color?

    @attackwithstones S&S will be getting more of them at some point as far as I know.

    Thanks Maynard, I was just wondering if anyone knew any more details about them. I wish SDA still did the Christmas editions.

    Sheesh, can’t imagine what those will cost. I think if I ever do Wesco’s I’ll get some black horsehide engineer boots. I’d consider Clinch or Attractions, but the price of Clinch is so high and I don’t think Attractions would be big enough.
