  1. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    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.
  3. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    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...

    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.

    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.

  10. Japan Blue Momotaro

    So, no 0901s for me just yet....I got a little bit of the run-around from Okayama Denim, unfortunately. After a week of not getting a shipment notification, I emailed them only to learn that they've totally out of stock on raw & one wash in my size and that the 0901s are out of production until the end of April. Though I had a very helpful, accommodating, and efficient email exchange with them, I do wish they would have initiated it. They've since fixed the availability on their website after I pointed out that it still showed the jeans as in stock and available for purchase even while we were swapping emails. Thankfully, I'm not in a huge hurry, they're the only pair I really want to add to the collection right now, and other vendors don't seem to have them in stock either. So, I opted to stick with my order and wait until the restock.

    I don't think @spunkey was involved with the auction. The pair listed by somebody going by leviskent501 on yahoo auctions japan was a size 30, the arcs were unpicked, and the patch was unnumbered. Here's the listing for the expired auction. @spunkey had mentioned that he unpicked his arcs in a prior post in the thread, and according the contestant list, had a size 32. It's also interesting to note that the auctioned pair may not have been sold; there were no bids on that listing. Even so, it would be nice if @spunkey would respond. I'm inclined to just go back and down vote every post he's ever made on sufu just to get his attention, but then again that's just not very nice.

    Some mucking about in the South Carolina "lowcountry" last weekend (tcb 60s worn, but not shown):

    ^the momotaro site tagged them as 1005sp. I initially thought that meant it was nothing more than a one-wash version of the same 15.7oz denim, but you seem to be right: retailers are listing it as one-washed sanforized denim (which seems strangely redundant somehow).

    All the more excited to have my 0901s arrive now that I've found the inspiration I was looking for... From an old version of momotaro's official website:

    ^Well, @Maynard Friedman, we're going to find out. I've placed an order, and we'll see if they get here before the tcb 20s contest reboots. Thanks.
