  1. Happy New Year! Technically this is from a few days ago but who's counting. FW watch cap, N1, heavy sweat, 661xx. Limmer Lightweights.
  2. They were closed that day! We walked by but they were on holiday break.
  3. Bit of a nutty day today (more on that later) but we’re making the most of it. Visited Oxford on a whim (kinda). Freewheelers watch cap, N1, pocket sweat, 661xx. Limmer lightweights.
  4. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to y’all! Heading across the pond here in a couple hours, will post plenty of photos once we’re back.
  5. And here you go, open and closed. I can't imagine ever needing to wear both!
  6. @MJF9 I tried fitting my 1922 jacket under the N1 with a t-shirt on underneath, I can fit it and zip up just fine but the forearms feel very snug. Not sure if this will subside with wear and break in, but it’s giving me Michelin Man vibes right now.
  7. I would've loved a pair of those Buaisou jeans, but I think he only made a couple pairs for himself and maybe a few for people in Japan.
  8. Usually I'm not a fan of Wrangler style jeans, but those broken arcs are really cool. Good work Julian, glad you have a second pair!
  9. Haven't tried yet but will report back, it's a little slimmer than some of my other FW jackets but It might work. The wool pile seems a little less thick than the MF deck jacket that I sold (which is a good thing IMO) so there might be enough room. Duke I've been thinking about tracking the purple one down, the fit is perfect. Fabric drapes nicely too.
  10. Final care package of the year arrived just in time. Gemsa. Hoodie in old brown (much more maroon in person). N1 in dark red beige. Going to give this one a workout next week.
  11. And here they are: https://www.ground-alls.com/shopdetail/000000000015/ct6/page1/order/ Not crazy about the arcs, but the jeans look nice overall.
  12. I'll have to bring some of my Self Edge stickers next time I'm there.
  13. I love Bender's, a must visit whenever I'm in San Francisco! Oddly enough we have a Bender here in Austin, similar vibes.
  14. Organizing my FW hang tags (and throwing out ones from other brands I’ve sold…) and came across a bit of printed Engrish. “Ultima Thure”.
  15. A few comparison shots of the WW2 denim and 30s.
  16. Sushi doesn’t hold back. If I find out any more information about the denim I’ll pass it along.

  18. Thanks Doc, I did a quick search of Marvin's for 1942 jeans and they were all more standard war era pairs, no cinches to be found. Will keep y'all posted if I find out any more information on these.
  19. @Dr_Heech do you have a list of what historically separates the 42 model from other jeans at the time? Off the top of my head, I've only seen Warehouse reproduce a 42 model and it looked more like a standard war era pair but with a crotch rivet and denim pocket bags (no cinch as well).
  20. New collection being previewed this week, taken from Sushi's Instagram. Lot 601XX 1942 and Lot 506XX 1942.
  21. @Vulcan There have been various dubious claims about RMC over the years: from poor quality (especially in relation to the hyper-inflated western pricing), leading vintage dealers on and photographing their pieces without permission / purchase (after they said they would be buying them) and then going on to reproduce said pieces with no attribution. That’s just a few things I’ve heard over the years, so I’d rather just not support them personally. I still have a Ballpark sweat I like that’s holding up just fine and one of the sea island cotton tees that’s alright. But I’ve sold or donated everything else that I had from them.
  22. @mlwdp Thermals can definitely be difficult, my FW ones fresh out of the wash feel a little tight but stretch very quickly. I’ve been looking for the honeycomb knit ones like these, wanted to avoid RMC and the Stevenson wool ones are too warm. Might grab the grey and natural in size 4.
