  1. ^I'm not gonna lie. It's a pretty compelling argument. I may well rethink my decision before we reach the deadline...
  2. I just want to register my support for the first arc option (OG-inspired) alongside others who've already chimed in. Also, I can appreciate Volvo's sentiment & disappointment about those of us who are going without suspender buttons. For me, the choice was all about making sure I won't even hesitate to wear my pair regularly. Buttons & braces would be fun as a novelty for me, but I somehow find the buttons to be the one thing that make me feel a shade or two too costume-y; as such, I just worry that I would pull my 60s or SC 47s on too often instead of the 20s. Truth be told, until the no-buttons option was confirmed, I was just going to buy a pair of 50s and sit the contest out. So, I'm quite pleased with Inoue's flexibility on this and happy to be on board for the contest. Also, I'm about to move from Denver, Colorado to Charleston, South Carolina and think that such a significant change of scenery and lifestyle should pair really well with the contest. Cheers.

    I'm not likely to be in the market for overalls anytime soon (a house with a garden and yard work is still a few years off), but I can't help but love this picture:
  4. Hopefully, he'll look to adopt the slight asymmetry and higher pitch (?) of the originals he's working with.

    Nice collection, Bobbo. You've probably already read this elsewhere, while the 60s don't stretch a ton, the stretch they do have comes pretty quickly. Mine easily stretch out in a day or two. I find this makes me all the more comfortable with regular washing.
  6. A slight tangent from the preceding comments: but I've gotta say that this funky little back pocket stitch that Inoue has reproduced is among my favorite details. {On a Swedish automobiling note: my silver 1983 Saab 900s (the "Slaab") came runner-up to my friend's '84 Volvo 240DL for "ugliest car" in our high school class yearbook back in 1997--a proud moment for sure}.
  7. I'm in. Pocket fabric & patch look great. Excited to see how the arcs turn out. Size 36, no suspender buttons. Ideally, I'd like the inseam to end up at the same length as my stock one-wash 60s (size 36). I think that's 84cm, right? grazie mille, volvo.

    Exactly what I've been hoping to hear... Here are my 60s (in rotation w/SC Okis & 47s since September):
  9. Thanks P_K. We need to see more worn hawaiis here....especially if I'm going to add a pair to my 47s & Okis rotation sooner than later.

    So, what then is the chance participants in the 20s contest could order a pair without suspender buttons?
  11. Just a passing question (I'm not in the market for these, but everyone's excitement is a bit infectious): why the heck did they totally fry the leather patches? My google translation suggests something about "daring to get vintage texture." But wouldn't you get an aged leather patch the same way as the denim, but wearing and washing and using them. It strikes me as odd to pre-distress the patch like that. Just curious.
  12. I wouldn't be surprised if you could get a bit more shrinkage out of them. My Okis were unwashed and took a number of hot washes to finish shrinking and my one wash 47s still shrank a bit over the first few hot washes. It's just my impression, but I don't think SC fries their one wash pairs as much as some others seem too.
  13. Good stuff, IH. Especially, the twisting waistband and the puckering between the yoke and the pockets. I'm surprised the buttons have made such a distinct impression on the fly.

    My chambray ranchman size 46 arrived today. The fabric is really great, with a bit more of a gray-purple cast than say the truer blue of the BR chambray. I'll get some side-by-side pics up this weekend. I took measurements immediately and found them to closely resemble the specs listed for a 44. Shoulder at 20" and chest 24" pit to pit both on the front and the back. Admittedly, it's a shade big in the shoulders as I'm built more column-like than triangular and 19-19.5" is usually best. But given the high arms holes and the shape of the pattern from the pits through the waist, I think the size 44 would have been cutting it too close. A little bit small always strikes me as way worse that a little bit big. To my surprise, the tag explicitly states do not tumble dry. Have others dried anyway without any problems?

    Thanks for all of the input on the ranchman Broark, mlwdp & pudas! I think I'm going to go with a 46 and wash/dry it liberally and without fear. Cheers.
