  1. Had a local friend hook me up.
  2. Got these a little while back and never got around to posting, top notch stuff. Scratched the Lee itch I'd been having.

    Nice pickup @Toegun, those were a close second to the WH I picked up.

    iconic denim photos

    Really cool stuff @buler, love seeing old photos/videos like this. I'd never venture into wearing overalls because I never do work like that! My dad's side of the family is from eastern Kentucky and they (his grandparents, so my great grandparents) were tobacco farmers. When I was about 18 I actually made it up there and saw the old family farm. No longer in operation but to see the old curing house was pretty neat. Hearing stories from my grandpa about how they would spend all summer there cutting/hanging/drying the tobacco out was really cool. That was also the first time I tried my first bit of real Kentucky moonshine.

    Always liked the look of those, denim looks really nice. Personally can’t ever get with the early one back pocket repros because I’m left handed, so I usually keep my wallet in my back left pocket.

    Been thinking about a pair of these bluchers lately, pricing just always makes me pause a little: https://www.yuketen.com/ready-to-wear/blucher-rocker-with-kiltie-fo-g-brown-229km

    @discwork are those Pras sneakers? I've been wanting to try those out myself.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    $65 for shipping kind of nullifies that discount...

    Not sure of every minute detailed difference but the 1915 denim is a 50/50 blend of natural and synthetic indigo.

    Warehouse

    @Dr_Heech no size chart, but I would trust the one on WH's website: https://www.takeoff-clothing.com/item_detail?item_id=6013 This is the only place I've seen this model with belt loops so far.

    @bartlebyyphonics I had a pair of 711's and sold them because the rise was was just too low for my liking. If Hayashi-san made a pair of 710-rise + 711-legged jeans I would be in.

    From yesterday. Papa Nui. RRL. Lady White. Warehouse. Paraboot.

    Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    I was thinking it could be the fact the the top button is exposed while the fly buttons are covered.

    Belts

    Good tip on the Tightly Stitched / engine recommendation, don’t mind the curve in the buckle at all. The one freeco posted above looks great. The thing with my Tender belt is that it has an edge at the bottom that leaves a very distinct fade / indent in my jeans. It’s a minor gripe in the grand scheme of things.

    Belts

    Any garrison belt recommendations? So far I'm thinking either Warehouse or Hollows. I love my Tender belt but the bottom of the buckle digs into the fly of my jeans, so looking for something more traditional. The Hollows isn't really a garrison buckle IMO (buckle isn't quite rectangular enough) but it's close and the rough out CXL is a nice option for something a little different.

    Warehouse

    Found them on Yahoo auctions lucked out as there were no other bidders. Won the auction for $100, $30 shipping via FedEx. Yahoo has a plethora of Warehouse stuff I’d you’re willing to search a bit!

    Ain't that the truth, I would've preferred something with metal punched buttons but for $130 shipped (brand new with tags) beggars can't be choosers.

    Warehouse

    Just received the lot 1202 USN utility pants. Exactly what I was looking for in a loose, light weight, tonal stitched summer pant. They're a little short but I think it it works well with the cut, just a small break when worn uncuffed. I'll get around to fit pics at some point.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    I've been thinking about buying them, the measurements for the 38 look good. But like Julian mentioned I just don't wear the pair of black jeans that I already own all that much... Part of it is due to the fit (not crazy about the super tapered leg on my PBJs).

    Warehouse

    I had been thinking about getting the brown model, but I'm not sure I could live with just suspender buttons and no belt loops personally.

    Watches and Denim

    Really like the look of the OP aho, I’ve been enjoying my Sub quite a lot and wearing it daily. I don’t know if I’ll ever dip my toes into Rolex again though, at least not in the current market. It’s bonkers. I would like to get a rhodium dial/white gold jubilee bracelet DateJust one day. I’ve been looking at Grand Seiko a lot lately too.

    Another wash and dry, liking these the more that I wash and wear them. Pocket bags are holding up well too.
