    So, has anyone picked up a pair of the catboy jeans yet? I'm considering getting a pair of catboys to start on when the 20s contest finishes. However, I take a 36, and since they're leepros, I'm worried that they'll have that super wide spread between the back pockets. Here's a post from Inoue's instagram that's got me nervous about this: https://www.instagram.com/p/BsnqiJ7lu5p/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

    I appreciate how comfortable Zizou is showing off his dainty ankles.

    bravo, volvo! Those 60s almost look stonewashed at this point.

    @Cold Summer The first thing I thought of upon reading your post was...William Gibson. I think he occupies the two degrees of separation between the superdenim world and the supertechwear world. The techwear crowd could be running around in his sci-fi/cyberpunk world just as easily as in the Matrix. Meanwhile, some of us are running around in his line of Buzz Rickson's gear (which, as you probably know, emerged alongside a character in Pattern Recognition that wore a fictional black Buzz MA-1). In fact, you could probably make an pretty reasonable argument that the military repro stuff, especially deck jackets and flight jackets are techwear's forbearers, in a way. Also, I really enjoy seeing how insanely expensive all that acronym and veilance stuff is and feeling much much better about the relative cost of my humble denim and workwear collection.

    @Geeman the white chambray (it's more of a natural un-dyed off-white) behaves just like the indigo one in my experience.

    I also wash and dry mine. No problems whatsoever. I've got my 3-year old indigo one (patching the elbow now/pics soon), a new indigo one, and the natural/white one. I know I'm a lot cheaper than other folks in these parts, but these shirts are hands down the best bang for buck items in my entire wardrobe.

    @lance Brilliant! The sashiko stitching on the back pocket looks really cool so faded out. But that poor patch...it look like a potato chip or a dog's chew toy.

    These cuts aren't appealing or feasible for me either; even with a 36" waist something with a more gentle taper like an Orslow 105 is too small at the knee and below to fit my lower legs comfortably. So, quite a lot of fit trends haven't ever worked: slim straight, skinny, carrot, relaxed tapered. I sometimes get frustrated when U.S. retailers carry brands I want, but follow the fit trends and offer none of the fits I'd buy (e.g., if only SE would carry an SD-101 now that they stock SDA or Blue Owl carry a Momo 0901 to go along with the 17 other Momo variations...). But then I just acknowledge that I'm just not their main customer base; I'll buy select items from them when I can, but I won't feel bad about not supporting them when I turn elsewhere. Since buying direct from Japan has become easier and more reliable (and often significantly cheaper), I simply go elsewhere to get 101s or 0901s.

    ^Usually only a handkerchief in my back left pocket. I always pull my wallet out when I sit otherwise I end up with hip/back pain.

    Nice updates everybody. My 20s are getting much more wear since I pulled the suspender buttons, but there's still some serious catching up to do. Cat ears are hanging on for now, but starting to look mangy.

    THIS OR THAT? (Use me for all your Should I Buy...? questions)

    Thanks, all. Despite the price tag, I ultimately decided to spring for some brown MF Shipyard Chinos (rather than the Sportsman). Compared to jeans, pants have been much harder for me to get enthusiastic about at these prices. But I think these MFs are distinct enough from a run of the mill chino/fatigue look without being too over-the-top, which means I'll actually want to wear them consistently. The Stan Ray option is definitely one I'll keep in my back pocket; thanks for the tip.

    I'd like to get a non-denim pant back into the wardrobe, and I'm really liking the look and measurements of 3sixteen's new Fatigue Pants. Most chinos and pants are way too slim in the knee and lower leg for me. But $265 seems really expensive. Any other non-slim/non-denim alternatives worth considering?

    @SmokeStackLightning you should be okay removing the back with minimal damage. I recently removed the suspender buttons with the same basic hardware design from my tcb 20s with minimal damage. If you have needle nose pliers with the little wire cutter with the circular "cut out" (like those pictured below), just put the wire cutter side flush against the fabric and gently close around/under the flat end of the button on the inside of the fly. Don't cut it, but get a good grip and then wriggle it back and forth until it's out. You'll have two very small holes in the fabric, but nothing that can't be closed or covered with a new button.
