    Dumbness seems to be one of the core elements that are essential to supporting this brand.

    I'd be more in this boat, I prefer to look for deals. I've had some very good luck on Yahoo auctions over the last year. If you're patient you can get great pairs for well under $200.

    I think, and I stress think, the Gripper Zipper is more historically accurate for a 50's pair, I don't think Talon were around as much on jeans then. Warehouse seem to use the Gripper Zipper branded zips on all their non button fly jeans.

    I love the way they did the arcs to get around the copyright issues, if you look inside the back pockets you can see how much of a pain in the ass it must have been to do it this way. Is there a brand name on the zipper? Gripper Zipper or Talon?

    I'm not trying to start a beef with anyone who likes the brand or anything, but I'm not sure I get the point you're making. I don't think being raised in Kansas or having family ties to LEE would necessarily make you an expert, he may have seen and handled a lot of old jeans but that would hardly make anyone an expert in reproducing them. That's a completely different skill set and one that would take years to develop. I would think the likes of the Osaka 5 guys would be experts because some of them have been in the game for over 30 years, long before it became trendy/hipster-y. How long has he been doing it, over 5 years??? I mean would this guy be more of an expert than the brothers that run Warehouse, who actually went to the extreme lengths of analyzing the way the cotton was wound on a vintage Levi's Banner to recreate old denim? Their own denim. This guy uses denim from Japanese mills yet apparently he also has " cracked the code "??? WTF indeed. The funny thing is, I don't think I gave a shit about this brand until I had a look at his Instagram page, it's just so annoying. As others have said, this is just Lawless all over again. In my opinion, if you're looking for a high end $300-ish pair of jeans, give your money to brands that actually deliver, ones that do so consistently because it's their "actual" business and not someone who is running a pyramid scheme as a hobby.

    Post a link to the review when you've finished it, I love those old school Japanese repos, wish I had been aware of the scene when they were making them.

    Just looking at the Lot 800 and the new Lot 800xx on the Warehouse website, there doesn't seem to be much difference between the two, except one is raw, the other one wash with a few bells and whistles, they're both made form the same denim.
