  1. @garden gnomes in space I've had a practically-bulletproof SDA unlined 19oz. duck jacket for the last 2 years that still has tons of stiffness to it. Unless I start actually doing more robust work around the house in it, I suspect it will stay that way for another couple years at least. It's the one piece I own that reminds me how buying heavy duty repro workwear can get a little silly if you're not actually doing any heavy duty work.

    @MJF9 these look great! Nice work.

    Omakase @ Shiro's in Belltown is one of my favorite Seattle stops. You can also hike north along the western shore of Lake Union up to the Fremont neighborhood, which has an awesome basement-level vintage mall, Blue Owl Workshop, Fremont brewery, a bunch of other shops, coffee spots, and eateries, as well as both a rocket and a crazy Lenin statue in the middle of town. The Gas Works are pretty neat and worth checking out if you're up that way, too. You can actually hike a whole loop starting from Lake Union Park, if you're really up for a full day's hike (I find the community of floating houses on the eastern shore fascinating).

    @tchengaa Looks good. The hip flare and room across the lap/seat will settle down a bit with more wear and as creases develop. That said, I would recommend cuffing higher so you eliminate the break; the legs will drape nicer. Check the cuffs on @julian-wolf's hawaiis just above, for one example.
  5. I think Berkeley Supply in Denver was aiming to offer chain stitching at one point, but I don't know if it ever came to be.
  6. ^TCB Seamens, maybe? They're lightweight denim, not twill/chino fabric though.
  7. @i_denim I think you're not winning much favor from folks around here in large part because you seem to be overlooking the fact that superdenim is a huge archive of information. You don't always need to ask questions when you can very often answer them for yourself by reading the years and pages of others' insights, experiences, and opinions. Also, don't forget to just wear and actually enjoy your jeans; for the sake of an analogy--you can know all the rules of chess regardless of whether you have a board or pieces, but you're never going to learn how to play the game until you actually start playing the game.

    I decided to channel my disappointment over the loss of custom pocket bag fabric into something a bit more positive and fun. After practicing on some fabric scraps, I made my first foray into embroidery. Other than a small section on the left where I made the stitches too tight,I feel pretty good about this. I was especially happy that I avoided sewing the pocket shut:

    ^Ha. It could be worse. At least Inoue didn't try to add whiskers.

    Glad to have our contest up and running again. Here are a few snaps from my first bona fide outing with the new batch of 20s. Entertaining family visitors with a day hike through an old rice plantation that's been turned into a nature preserve. Swamp, tidal marsh, former rice paddies, and cypress forest all converge here: Lots of alligators in the rice paddies, including a pair of babies riding atop their mother, presumably. And the 20s:

    I get it. But now that I've got my contest 20s again, I'm more pleased with the cat ears than I thought I would have been. The horizontal line pattern fits with the very symmetrical square pockets and echoes other repro workwear pockets (especially chore coats, overalls, and the like). Here's mine (sorry, not the best pic) with my SDA chore coat: Besides, if anything screams cheap mall-brand pockets to me, it's this:

    my new pair are now in hand and getting their first soak... I agree @bartlebyyphonics; there's certainly more chatter and irregularities in the fabric than I remember noticing in the first pair...
  13. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    I'll admit I thought twice about grousing about the pockets...certainly not heartbroken and certainly no blame assigned to anything but circumstance. jeans in hand will prove a good salve; here's hoping for a delivery by the end of the week.
  14. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Agreed; this is a bit disappointing. In the absence of any other exclusive traits to distinguish from stock 20s, those cat ears suddenly became quite pricey. Probably just a casualty of the chaos.

    Desperately seeking jeans to hold up, preferably size 36 with an interest in taking long walks on the beach and a willingness to grow old and fade together. Must love cats.
